Second best Scream album I'd say.
I was listening to Primal Scream last night (Xtrmntr) and got 2 other albums, it's sorta clear to me now that their music can be cool, but mainly they're just as good as their producers, Shields, Orb, Jah Wobble, etc,
I reckon Mani's playing is a big part of what makes Xtrmntr/Vanishing Point so great though...
Fair point, I can't stand Gillespies voice though
Don't mind it myself. I've always had a soft spot for the boy Gillespie.
I have their demos from '83/'84 somewhere on tape, they're great, super-twee jangly pop music!
It's that in general sometimes I dislike them, I loved Xcellerate and Screamadelica but they're really lauded for Screamadelica and that's the sort of album that they abandoned the sound totally after last album and became stones rip off, I just can't stand some of his attitude, ie atglastonbury, when he releases crap like country girl, drops bomb pentagon as single and that a lot of best moments I like aren't dowen to band, few examples 'shoot speed kill light' mental production and Bernard Sumner on guitar, acellerates Sheilds distortion, they can make a good racket but they don't seem to have a soul or style
