Primal Scream had been fragile, 60s obsessed dreamers, influenced by Love and (particularly) The Byrds (85-87) but in 1989 they were NY Dolls leather-clad rockers with the odd Big Star slowie or Stonesy ballad thrown in for good measure.

 

Then BANG acid house and ecstasy hit and in the spirit of the day, Andy Weatherall took one of those Stones style heartbreakers and made the hit single "Loaded". Indie-Dance was born, anyone remember?!

 

But this LP is much, much bigger than that. It goes up, it comes down, and covers all the magic in between. There's blues, soul, gospel, house, dub and yes a beautiful Stonesy ballad ("Damaged"). No songs are fillers, it's a perfectly realised musical statement. With The Orb, Andy Weatherall and even the Stones'Jimmy Miller to help them, they created one of the best albums of the 90s that still resonates today.
