Now we're talking! This album brings together some classic rock influences ("Inner Flight" feels like 90s Pet Sounds) with acid house production. It immediately brings to mind that dance episode of Spaced and memories of being able to actually go out dancing with friends. It's such a memorable listen and the Primal Scream album that sticks with me the most. Step inside and let yourself be free. Rating: 4.5/5 Favourite tracks: "Loaded", "Moving on Up", "Damaged" and "Inner Flight"

It is hard to believe this was released in 1991. This sounds like something more recent, especially considering the sampling and production. Not sure how this band is a rock band though XD It certainly requires a few more listens to give this a decent rating, as there is so much to unpack here. I feel each listen you will discover something new, which is just a testament to the production here. Love it!

I remember buying this album on a one-day band trip in high school. Snuck over the HMV while everyone was grabbing lunch and got it 2 for $20 with some other record. The reason I can't remember the other record I bought that day because Screamadelic confounded me. I loved the funky acid/psych rock, but my 16 year old ears had never heard club beats before. Wasn't a hit with my friends, and I mostly listened to "Moving On Up" on repeat, but over the years I got to the rest of the tracks. Incredible stuff, sprawling and loose, but not even a second wasted on this hour-long listen. Fav Tracks: Loaded, Moving on Up, Shine Like the Stars and Inner Flight. Rating 4.5/5

Ahh the album that invented the 90's. Such a cool concept and mixture of genres. Even though it draws from arguably dated sounds and ideas it still feels cool and fresh.

Really interesting music. Hard to pin a genre on this, the description on Apple Music is all over the place. Listening to this outside in the sun feels perfect though, catching a vibe for sure. I love the instrumentals. The vocals are fairly weak and forgettable, but with this kind of music they really aren’t that important. I dig it. Favorite tracks: Movin On Up, Don’t Fight It Feel It, Higher Than the Sun, Loaded, Damaged. Album art: LOVE this one, I’m calling it iconic based on seeing it just a number of times. Bright colors like this work great for me, and it definitely fits the music. More like this. 4/5

Sometimes when you throw a bunch of genres in a blander and set it on high, something pretty cool comes out. This is one of those times. Not every sip of the psych-dance-gospel-dub smoothie is perfect, but it's never uninteresting.

Love this album! Nick I can definitely see Inner Flight being on Pet Sounds. I also am picking up Beach Boys Holland vibe on Shine Like Stars. What struck me over and over was how most of the instrumental tracks reminded me of The Fireman's first album (McCartney/Youth). It makes sense as Youth comes from the same scene that influenced this album at the time. This album came out in 91 and McCartney and Youth started working on the first Fireman album in 92. So many similarities. This was a joy to listen to and is now in rotation. Favorite song: Moving on Up, inner Flight, Loaded, Damaged and Shine Like Stars. 5 star!!

I have loved this record since it came out. The songs are, perhaps, not that strong, but the production and mood lifts this into the all time classic range. Its a night in the clubs, with the chill-out come-down at the end. The spaced-out, dubbed-out, extended dance mix production turn this into an album that I can listen to over and over again. Loaded is a staple of my DJ sets, but in context, event he weaker songs on this album work because of the way they contribute to the mood and journey of the record. love it.

Enraging, directionless, nonsensical garbage. Any allusion to familiarity with certain radio play songs, doesn’t do enough to save this appalling piece of garbage. I’m finding more terrible albums with this process than good. My average rating is closer to 2.

If my imaginary 14 year-old son had made this at school, of course I'd listen, though I'd have fleeting thoughts of giving up after Come Together, especially as the wee lad would have crashed on the sofa by that point anyway, but fatherly duty would compel me to see it through to the end, and I'd finish feeling pretty impressed. Pretty proud of young Todd, too. Context is everything.

Disco genial, porque no le encuentro muchos otros adjetivos. Me hace querer drogarme aunque no lo haga, jaja, y tiene vibras, ritmos, sonidos, beats muy atractivos. Mucha energía acá, incluso en sus canciones con tempos más bajos, lo cual crea atmósferas diversas. "Come Together" me gusta mucho, en todo su desarrollo de diez minutos y otras favs son "Don't Fight It, Feel It" y "Shine Like Stars". Sin skips. 10/10

A great mix of indie and dance production from Weatherall and Gillespie. I don’t love this quite as much as some of my friends did back in the day, but it still has a strong sense of nostalgia for me. And it does want me to get real messy on a cocktail of drugs, cigarettes, alcohol and staying up way too late.

This list is giving me a treat this week as this is the 3rd album from late '91 that happens to be an absolute favourite of mine. I was 18 when this came out 30 years ago and what a time it was be be immersed in music. Some have said I am biased because of mny youth but this, Nevermind and Loveless have stood the test of time with me. And in the case of Screamadelica, I love it more now than I ever had. This album is genius on every level and I am forever grateful for Andy Weatherall and Alex Paterson for helping take a bunch of leather clad noise merchant's and shape them into the blissed out rave gods of this album.

Wow. Das ist richtig cool. Ich kannte das Cover aber das ist das erste was ich noch nie gehört hab was mich richtig umhaut. Das ist so schön atmosphärisch und meditativ das hat total mit mir resoniert. So irgendwo zwischen Boards of Canada und George Clanton ca., die divergenz an Genres hittet richtig einen Sweetspot bei mir. wirkt selbst 30 Jahre später noch total frisch und experimentell finde ich. Selbst wenn hier nicht jeder Track komplett überzeugt hat das als Projekt total viel tolles zu bieten und der Sound an sich ist einfach klasse. Das ist der erste Punkt an dem ich richtig froh bin dieses Projekt mitgemacht zu haben, vieles ist echt so lala aber wenn man dann diesen Moment hat wie grade lohnt es sich komplett, genau dafür ist es ja da.

Ooh ok I haven’t heard this in a while… The album opens with it’s most “ normal” song movin’ on up a rather happy clappy little song to get everyone singing before the true nature of the album is revealed with… Slip inside this house a cover song originally by a 60’s band called 13th floor elevators it’s really got the Indian based psychedelic feel of the later era Beatles, the song isn’t one of my favourites but I love the way he sings the lyrics on here. The third song on here is don’t fight it feel it It’s an alright song I like the whistling sounds crashing with the more dance like elements, this is probably the most clubby on here unlike come together or loaded ( later in this album) this song doesn’t really own it’s longer run time and drags after the songs first half. Next is higher than the sun the album’s shortest song a great drawling trance of a track, really enjoyable and a true drug song ( but not as much as the alternative version of the song later in the album ( which I prefer over this)). Inner flight ( while not a favourite of mine) is a brilliant instrumental piece with thundering tribal drums and haunted “aah’s” and “ooh’s leading just perfectly into… Come together the album’s centrepiece track a 10 minute epic which sounds like it’s made only of samples being layered over a drum beat. It’s surprisingly amazing and doesn’t drag! “ Just what is it that you want to do? Well, we wanna be free, we wanna be free to do what we wanna do And we wanna get loaded and we wanna have a good time And that's what we're gonna do (away baby, let's go) We're gonna have a good time, we're gonna have a party” This is the sample at the start of loaded which probably wins for my favourite sample of all time; anyway the actual song is great too a 7 minuter this time it feels like a more rock based version of come together as it has more organic guitars and pianos over all of the sampling and drum beat, the high to end all highs a true highlight! Damaged sounds like it’s meant to represent the comedown from loaded, the most distinctive track a very organic slow kinda beautiful sonic. But honestly if you’re not like me and you don’t like more traditional songs you will hate this, I like it though. I’am coming down is a very distinctive track amongst the album this slow drag of a song with some quite Indian sounding instrumentals and tribal drumming, not a favourite but a good collection of sounds on this one. Higher than the sun ( feat.Jah wobble) is a slower 7 minute drug filled version of the other version of the track. It’s a song that sounds like it’s made for headphones with the sampling in one ear then this tapping noise in the other originally making me wonder if someone was knocking on the first minutes ( oh yeah and half way it just stops for an awesome bass solo to only rebuild the song). I love this! The album closes with shine like stars a slow heavenly track with a surprisingly creepy verse for the last bit it sounds like it’s gone an octave or so down making the last moments sound surprisingly depressed. It’s better than I thought it was a true 5/5.

El álbum va por muchos moods de drogades (pachecón en incremento y al final el bajón depresivo) . Me gustaron sobre todo movin on up y que su repetición casi al final para darle el toque de cicularidad. También me gustó la segunda canción que está rockerona y el contraste entre I'm coming down y higher than the sun. Estaba cocinando y me estaba mareanado de solo escuchar. Mood: está potente.

I really liked this album, to the point where I'm wondering why I wasn't more into Primal Scream way back when. They even headlined the first Glasto I went to in 98 and I remember just listening to them from my tent. I think their heyday was probably slightly too early, although I never had a problem with retrospective Nirvana love. I was much more into indie/rock at that time and this definitely draws a variety of influences. 7.5/10

Kann dieses Album nicht unvoreingenommen hören; da ist immer noch der Teenager, der 1992 die britische Rave-Welle aus zweiter bis dritter Hand mitfieberte, und dann auch der Erwachsene der das Ding in verschiedensten Phasen immer wieder gehört, rezipiert und live aufgeführt gesehen hat. Aus heutiger Sicht ist das denn auch vor allem ein Cross-Over-Album, das die Vorlieben drogenaffiner Ghetto Kids aus Glasgow für Soul und Southern Rock mit den drogenaffinen Dancefloor-Skills von Andrew Weatherall und der drogenaffinen Umarmung von Ecstasy, Ibiza und Sonnenschein in einen Topf wirft, ordentlich schüttelt und zum strahlen bringt. Nicht alles hat die Zeiten gleich gut überstanden, dennoch scheinen Hymnen wie Come Together durch alle Jahrzehnte und versetzen noch heute in Rausch und Liebe. Rave on!

I know zero about this band, but I sure love the cover. I'm loving the first song, pretty much 60's sounding rock and roll. Then we get a noiser synthier track which is also quite appealing as it moves right along into the third, a straight up house dance track. Higher Than the Sun reminds me of mid-career Duran Duran. And so on. Loaded is a lot of fun. The whole album is a lot of fun.

Wow this album starts off really strongly Movin 'em Up. Great funky bass and drums propel the song...a really great start. Then we get bogged down in some long drawn out dance floor jams, especially; Don't Fight it Feel It, which about 4 minutes I'm hoping for an end, unfortunately that end comes only 3 minutes later. The next song Higher Than The Sun is more of the same. Inner Flight is better but then things really start cooking with Come Together and the album finishes strongly. I'm going to listen again, so it did make me WANT to see if I'm missing something in the songs I didn't like but what I did like I liked enough to almost give it a 4. 3.75 🌟

Screamadelica has grown on me massively since the last time I heard it. The influences feel very dated but the assemblage is inspired and fresh. For whatever reason, I still find myself referring to the pop hooks of the band's 2010 output, but this is objectively superior and I expect to uncover more layers in the future.

At the risk of spoilers for the uninitiated, the overall sound is reminiscent of the late 90s U.S. Anti-Piracy commercials. The feelings through the first few tracks are mostly neutral, up until "Inner Flight" where it seems to sneak into a little of experimental groove, and not in a great way. This album though has some serious 90s nostalgia, from the drum loops to the overall feeling of the recording itself, but it is 1991 and seemingly well before this style started to dominate the airwaves of the 90s with popular singles from The Verve, Primitive Radio Gods, Butthole Surfers, etc. all can be traced to the feel of "Screamadelica". Sometimes, when a band tries to incorporate wide variety into a single album it tends to induce a feeling of disorganization rather than innovation. Primal Scream seems to balance this act rather well, and while there were certainly different moments, they did not feel out of place here. Surprisingly easy to listen to, the album deserves to be enjoyed in moments of winding down or during leisure activities. The ebbs and flows of the album are just a well-crafted balance of an overall intentional experience. While some songs may impact more than others, the album speaks for itself in its entirety rather than from a dominating single, and that is a good thing.

This... is an interesting listen to me. The sounds are unfamiliar but I did not make that stop me from trying to absorb and become friends with it. The album started off with a bang for me. I loved the first song. Everything else after, however, is... uh, weird? I can see why the genre would be confusing. I might rate it a 3 since it's not my type of sound, but I'm going to bump it up to a 4 because I found the music oddly satisfying. It's a new territory. Highlights: Movin' On Up

This is another one of those albums that sounds like a blender medley of bands that I love, but don't like their parts together. It's not to say that I don't like this album, I do, it's just a bit generic, giving me the vibes of U2, Beta Band (and yes, I know, they formed AFTER, i'm just saying, sound-wise), The Smiths, and Pulp (you wanna talk about an underrated band, Pulp is criminally underrated). The best song on this album is a tie between "Loaded" and "Slip Inside This House". I'd listen to this again, but not in one sitting.

This album had SO many sounds of the 90's. Whether it was the bells and whistles found in Don't Fight it, Feel it or the media samples used in Loaded. The pure variety of styles shown throughout the album was impressive. The album lost me a bit during the Higher Than the Sun (A Dub Symphony in Two Parts) though.

Two listens is not enough for this one, and being sober isn't suitable either! Overall, I like the inspirational stuff like Movin' On Up, Come Together, Loaded and I'm Coming Down. They make great use of samples, and I like when they mess around with all kinds of varied percussion instruments. I'm not such a fan of the drawn out repetitive parts, but it's definitely growing on me so will revisit this some day.

I think I listened to my dad's copy many years ago, but happy to give it a fresh listen. It sounds like an indie band remixed by a DJ, which is what it is. I was pretty disappointed by the other Andrew Weatherall project I had a few pages back in this thread. But happily, the most house-leaning tracks (like "Don't Fight it, Feel it") are strong. The few tracks of straight-up 60s psychedelic rock homage are pretty dull. The vocal samples around "Come Together" and "Loaded" are cheap, and the album feels bloated at 1 hour 5 mins. Slightly strange that the album is regarded as groundbreaking, when it's a logical extension of what Happy Mondays and other bands had been doing for a few years. However, it's pretty fun and cool. 3/5

On their third album, Primal Scream moved away from their bluesy rock and asked house producers to remix their music, creating a chill out/ come down album. In the process, they created two absolute classic tracks in Movin’ On Up and Loaded. But the overall album is lengthy and tracks lack variety for sustained repeat interest. An album to reach for to help you sleep perhaps? That isn’t quite the insult it sounds like though, because that is in the post the dreamlike mood the band want to create for the listener.

The only PS record I had heard before listening to this was "XTRMNTR" and I remember thinking it was ok but fans were disappointed. After listeining to Screamadelica, I can understand why. Not only is it an objectively better record, it doesn't even sound like the same band. A lot of this record has the loose and fun feeling of late-60s, early 70s Rolling Stones. Not sure if that's be design, but I love it. It also has some modern elements (electronic drum and piano loops and sitar in the same song!) that in 1991 probably seemed very ahead of their time. I like that. Still, some of it sounds like music I'd hear in the dressing room at Express or H&M. Meh. But I'm sure in the early 90s, it was very cool.

How did they get away with this? 'Movin' on up' is so Rolling Stones you can hardly believe it isn't them. It's the 'Sympathy for the devil' rhythm track mixed with the 'You can't always get what you want' choir. But it's still great to listen to. 'Loaded' is George Michael's ''Freedom 90' shamelessly stolen (and also is the 'Sympathy for the devil' rhythm track. I can't believe they weren't sued to hell and back. Great to listen to but they stole if all..

I thought it was a cool genre blend; I appreciate artist that have albums with lots of variety. A few songs I thought were quite great, but some I didn't like, including as the club dance-sounding music or some of the slower trance songs. The songs that were good, were really good. Bit too much electronica for my taste. Singer sounds like a mix between Mick Jagger and Thom Yorke. i think my favorite was Come Together. Not a fan of the 80s/90s-sounding drum machines, but that's just a personal preference.

I know the first track, wasn't all that interested in the rest of the album when I got pointed in this band's direction. Still not. It almost seems to have a UK sound; like the whistles in Don't Fight it. Feel it - has a soccer stadium kind of feel (chant to the beat). I'm sure these guys inspired or helped move forward bands like the Chemical Brothers or Prodigy (also British) but I'm not sure I care. I prefer the slower stuff toward the end of the album, starting with Damaged (though it sounds a bit like a slower version of Movin on Up). In the end, I guess it's not terrible.

This album is all over the place for me; it's like it doesn't know what it wants to be. I hadn't heard of this band before this. The first track I thought the band was one thing, then the next couple of tracks made think it was something else. I... _WANT_ to like this, but the variation is too great. I can't get a bead on what this wants to BE. The detours into electronica were like... playing a country song in the middle of a metallica album. It was too confusing.

Was eine wilde Mischung an Sounds irgendwie? Also teilweise etwas altbackene elektronische Musik, aber teilweise richtig geile Sachen auch. Vor allem der erste Track absoluter banger, könnte legit ein britpop/Oasis whatever Song sein der 7 Jahre später rausgekommen ist, minus die background vocals. Ein anderer track der mir aufgefallen ist, war Come Together, also zumindest die instrumentals. Der beat bzw. die drums und die keyboard parts mit den Trompetentönen(?) erinnert mich mega an so balearic beat Künstler:innen aus den 2000ern, wie Tough Alliance oder so! Insgesamt also echt ganz cool, vor allem die ersten 3-4 tracks, und wie gesagt Come Together. Ansonsten aber doch was lang für meinen Geschmack, hab irgendwann ab nach der Hälfte teilweise abgeschaltet. 3/5

I have only ever recognized this album from it's cover. I do not know the band, album title, nor any songs on it, but I'll never forget that album art. Some pretty good dance music! Very much leans into some UK psychedelic stuff from around this time. As is the case with most dance music, it leans into repetition, and repetition legitimizes. And because repetition legitimizes, it gives the music a sturdy and reliable foundation for people to dance to. The beat is important! And while I might not get a whole lot out of this band's dance music, I can still appreciate the songs for their approach to alternative dance. Album could've stopped at Damaged though, I feel like that was a good way to cap it off.

In the eighties a handful of artists decided to make the move from a post-punk sound to a more rhythmic, dancefloor sound. Maybe they were inspired by Talking Heads’ Remain in Light? The thing I found in common with many of these bands (like Primal Scream) was that I wasn’t exactly rushing to the dancefloor when I heard their songs. That said, there are some interesting tracks here: The lead of track with its gospel choir reminds me a bit of ‘You can’t Always Get What You Want”. I like some of the housy piano-hooks throughout, which weren’t so dated in ’93. The plodding ballads however, highlight the fact that Bobby Gillespie’s voice is better suited for his first band, The Jesus and Mary Chain, than for this type of music.

The album does a good job of presenting itself as it lives: a drug-fueled haze. Initial impression was "bad U2 rip-off", but after the first song I was more into it. But it's pretty repetitive (by design, I imagine), and I'm just not the right person to completely enjoy this. If I was high and felt like dancing, I'd be all about it..

I don't think I've listened too or thought that much about these guys since the 1990s. They did put together a pretty nice formula, with bits of house, trance, but also funk and psychedelic sounds, very catchy stuff over all. Somehow I also think of Jesus Jones when listening to them - the edge between rock/pop and electronic music seems a bit blurred with both of them. Overall, it's fun to revisit this and it could be an interesting surprise to have a track come on at a party or something, but not really something I want to listen to a whole album of, and not something I'd consider really essential listening.

Primal Scream's third album drew inspiration from the new house music scene of the 90's, so instead of indie rock in this album it's mostly alternative rock/dance with a dash of psychedelic rock. Some of the band's earlier work was remixed to have a more "dancey" vibe in this album. The change was warmly welcomed by fans and critics, making this album popular and eventually selling 3 million copies worldwide. I liked the experimental sound of house music and psychedelic rock coming together in this album, and wish there was more music like this to be discovered. What a beautiful album from the glorious 90's!

Hi- Movin' On Up, Damaged Movin' On Up reminds me of Kula Shaker or some kind of bluesy, indie-rock jam, I was pretty into it. But then things take a 180 and the rest of the album is some kind of acid-house, ambient-electronic world music akin to Passion Pit...but then I am reminded this is 1991, and these kinds of sounds were just emerging. Depending on how you look at it, it's all very chill if not a bit drawn out, and maybe because of this I didn't feel like any of tracks stood out. Damaged returns to its bluesy folk rock, and is quite nice, but then we're back to frankly boring electronic for the rest of the album.

Definitely the favorite album of a white college student with dreds and black light posters in his dorm in the '90s.

Not really my type. They put a good sound together, and the production and general quality that they bring to the feel of the music is good, but just not for me.

The roots of what made "the sound" of the nineties are all here. Credit where due, Primal Scream did it earlier than almost everyone else. But almost everyone else did it better than Primal Scream. "Screamadelica" never really finds its feet. Most of the tracks are 2-3 minutes longer than they need to be and the album bounces around between rock and pop with an odd ballad and electronic dance track thrown in here and there. None of it really works. Every track feels like the band got about 80% of the way there and then they just gave up and called it good enough. But it's not really good enough, is it? It's just... disappointing.

This early 90s acid house / rave party sound has really outlived its welcome. Really uninspired, boring and most notably a very dated sound. If I never hear another record sounding like this before I die I would be a very happy man.

This is neither primal nor a scream. It's also not very interesting. Best track: Movin' on Up

HATE THIS ALBUM. There were one or two songs that were solid, but most were torturous.

A mix of techno and almost world music. Honestly just waited for the album to end

Strives to hit some balance between choral, dance, and indie but ends up becoming a bland, repetitive mess in the process

First Listen. Nothing special here. One good song. One. The rest seemed just blah to me. I'll give it another chance someday but for now, 1/5

Another in the long list of albums designed to be listened to whilst spamming your bonce with pills. Which means it makes passable background music but does absolutely nothing for the dendrites.

Good start but quickly petered out into presumably drug fuelled nonsense.

Ik moest mezelf forceren om het album niet af te zetten. Iets te zweverig naar mijn mening

Reading the Wikipedia page I was expecting a true revolutionary album, but it was very disappointing. Maybe it was revolutionary when it was released, but today, it sounds very generic and not so good electronic rock.
