Primal Scream - Accelerator (2000)

Let's not beat around the bush here. Screamadelica's a hype. A bluffer's indie-dance guide with a top-one-sorted cover. Some cool (Andy Weatherall and Orb) tracks and a nice bit of Jah Wobble. About 5 good tracks. The Scream's Imperial Phase was the Vanishing Point/ XTRMNTR/ Evil Heat trilogy.

After the pills, thrills and smack habits, things got dark in scream-world. But 2 very important things happened during this time. Firstly, Mani joined. Second, they started working with Kevin Shields.

XTRMNTR, the first classic album of a new millenium, was the peak of their powers. Vicious, searing white noise punk rock with beats and seriously tripped out production. Turn this up and enjoy. It's like standing in a wind tunnel.
