iTunes Review

After more than a decade of restlessly reinventing their sound, Primal Scream consolidate on their seventh album by revisiting the styles that have served them best. “Deep Hit of Morning Sun” compellingly fuses electronic futurism and ’60s psych-pop, and “Miss Lucifer” simultaneously brings disco bounce and garage-rock frisson. There’s even some enjoyably daft posturing on “Rise”, while production from Kevin Shields (“City”) and Andrew Weatherall (“Autobahn 66”) ensures an impulse to push things forward continues to poke through.

Dirty sounds

This was the perfect follow up to xtrmntr,full of attitude and heavy bass.This is the sound primal scream pull off the best! Rise and City are stand out tracks but all of it is pretty amazing.This is one of the 3 essential primal screams you must own along with Vanishing point and xtrmntr.

Skull X is the standout track, amongst a host of contenders.

Primal Scream's career could in many ways be read as a microcosm of British indie rock in the '80s and '90s. Bobby Gillespie formed the band in the mid-'80s while drumming for the Jesus and Mary Chain, who were the exact opposite of Primal Scream -- the latter specialized in infectious, jangly pop on its early records. After a brief detour to punky hard rock, the group reinvented itself as a dance band in the early '90s, following through on the pop and acid house fusions of the Stone Roses and Happy...
