EDITORS’ NOTES

Before acid house, Scotland's Primal Scream were your average, jangly psych-rock act. Then rave hit and Andrew Weatherall signed on to produce their third album, Screamadelica, and a generation's collective mind was blown. Their roots are evident in the Stones-style blues rock of "Movin' On Up," but the '60s quickly melt away as they dive into house beats, synth bleeps, dubbed-out remixology, and the mind-bending chillout bliss of "Higher Than the Sun" and "I'm Comin' Down." Dancing in muddy fields would never be the same again.

The Kraken Awaken ,

The greatest album?

Is 'Screamadelica' the greatest album ever made? Scores of 90's music hacks would have you believe this. It is a thing of immense beauty and poweer. Man, it's blissed out!!

The Teryy Farley extended mix of 'Come Together' is worth the album prize alone: a perfect storm lf dub, Gospel, sampling and a lil' bit of 'Scream magic.
