EDITORS’ NOTES

Through 10 albums and nearly two decades, Primal Scream have proved one of rock’s great chameleonic bands. Their 11th is a stylish, zeitgeisty set that mines their dance-pop prowess. “Trippin’ on Your Love” is a shameless slice of Screamadelica-like baggy fun complete with a Haim vocal assist, “Where the Light Gets In” pits Bobby Gillespie against Sky Ferreira in an irresistible space pop duel, while the rock of “Golden Rope” features considerable crunch. But it’s not all knockabout fun: Gillespie allows some rare introspection on the throbbing “(Feeling Like A) Demon Again” and mournful “I Can Change”.

Cease the moping about Sky Ferreira please...

This review is to help reset the negative one posted by PopCultureSnob. Rating this album down based on not crediting Sky Ferreira on a track is re-donk-ulous. They didn't credit Robert Plant on 2013's "More Light" album on the song "Elimination Blues" so...who cares! This band's output is what counts and those who they solicit to collaborate are well compensated I'm sure.

Back to form!

Truly fabulous return to form for Primal Scream showing that they remain relevant almost 30 years after they recorded their first album! The album blends the inimitable cocktail of electronia, soul, pop and beats that make Primal Scream unique. Bobby Gilespie's easy voice brings some of these tracks to trancendental levels. And, yes, "Where the light gets in" with Sky Ferreira is a pop anthem!

Indeed, shame on PopCultureSnob for rating this down because of how iTunes omitted the credit - that has nothing to do with the quality of this music.

Avant-Pop

By George, I think they may have done it. A watershed even for the Primals?
