Notes

Tracks 3, 5, 6, 9 to 11 produced for Boys Own Productions.

Original release distributed by Pinnacle (Screamadelica is similar but with a disc made in France by MPO), and later by 3MV/Vital (here). Minor art & text changes on the disc will reflect this. This version has no title on the front cover artwork and, instead, has a round yellow sticker on the jewel case that states the artist/title and at the bottom "this sticker is removable".

I think some tracks on this album are ahead of their time like Higher that the sun (a dub symphony in two parts). And yes every single track has to do with drugs. Cmon there's a sitar player in the artwork on the inside of the cover!! And then they release Kill All hippies.Nice... I love them

Stunning Indie /Dance music crossover album that is without doubt the Scream's finest moment and Andy Weatherall's finest moment as a producer. An album very much of it's time, from the early euphoric 90s when everyone was going mad and felt a part of a real scene and community. Probably the only album in the world where every single track is connected to drugs and which works beautifully. Stunning guitar music that you can dance to.

Just bought this record last week, and it's a 1992 release! Shame on me, I guess, since right now it's late April, 2003. Oh well, you know what they say: better late than never. That particular saying is so very true for this record!

I've bought the last three Primal Scream albums (Vanishing Point, XTRMNTR and Evil Heat), and found them all very, very good. Especially Vanishing Point, where I really like the diversity and the 'easy' vibe that whole album has over it. Maybe then it's not very surprising I find Screamadelica just plain and utterly brilliant?! Dare I say it's the best Primal Scream album I own, now? Yes, I dare.

No, really. It has everything the later albums miss: a positive vibe. The latest three (yes, even Vanishing Point, at least to a certain extent) all sound quite negative and aggressive. Not that I don't like that (I love it!), it's just that it's not very mood-helping to play all three in a row. But suddenly, everything can and should be seen in another perspective.

Why is it that the Primals became so bitter? Why are they being chased by inner soul demons? I mean, why else do they make albums like XTRMNTR and Evil Heat? If you (as a musician or band) go from one end of the musical spectrum (Screamadelica) to the other (Evil Heat), then something must have happened along the way. Just what was it? Screamadelica is so peaceful; very pleasing to play at a very loud volume and totally immerse yourself in it's warm mood and soundscape(s), whereas the latest two albums are too dense and negative to really immerse yourself in. (Oh, you can actually do it, it's just that you get really, really fucked up when you do!)

I really like Bobby's voice, and would like to hear it more often in songs like Damaged, I'm Coming Home and Shine Like Stars. On Vanishing Point, they're there (those type of songs), but less so than on Screamadelica. I think it's their best album. And very jazzy at some points, even. Lovin' it! (And only bought it last week... :-)
