A decent album full of good songs and catchy riffs, I'm doubtful that it deserves to be anywhere near the top 200, but music is after all subjective. The problem comes with the lack of brevity. Their are several songs that clock in around the seven minute mark, often with the repetition of a single idea. This includes the obnoxiously long Come Together.
Bonafini is right that its deepest sentiment is 'we wanna get high and not care' but I don't think thats the point. It's an album that's worth a listen, but don't be afraid to skip the occassional minute or two in a song, chances are you won't miss a thing.

Without that Dub Symphony it would be a 10/10 for me, even with it´s repetion on some songs.

From Brad1770
What a classic album , who would have thought Bobby Gillespie could put this together following his departure from Jesus and Mary Chain . This album hooks you from opening bars of Movin' On Up and never lets up . Loaded is one of the best songs of all time , yes of all time and to this day I still find it incredible after hundreds / thousands of listens .I love this album like a dear friend .

Enjoyable record and a very important one too. Lots of different sounds going on, a good use of samples and the right place at the right time make this a classic album. Personally, I'm not a massive fan of the record but I cannot deny it's significance.

I have to admit that when I first got into Primal Scream this was the first album I bought and at the time loved it - I remembered it from being nominated for the Mercury award, and the episode of the Classic Album series on this was really interesting. On listening now, however, there seems to many unmemorable moments and for me is not even the best PS album. Still enjoyable though, just struggle to make a point of listening to this all the way through.

I have to admit. About half of the songs I could imagine on a mediocre comedy... you know those "warm fuzzy" scenes. Sound is totally 90s dated. There were some highlights and moments where I thought they could have had merit, but in the end it fell flat for me. Personal opinion not agreeing with status quo of course gets voted down.

Also from the name and cover, I was expecting a loud punk band or something. hahaha

It's alright but I really don't think it deserves all the high praise it has received. It has a couple good tunes, but overall it just seems really repetitive and a bit bland.
Best tracks: Movin' On Up, Damaged
Worst track: I'm Comin' Down, Higher Than The Sun (A Dub Symphony In Two Parts)

From bonafini
This thing slaughters the English rock of the '60s and '80s and attach their cut off limbs on the dumbest type of EDM. Its most powerful statement is "let's get high and not care" -- and it doesn't even care to say it in a crafty manner, if that's even possible. Screamadelica is the perfect picture of a mindless but well-dressed bourgeois youth that is willing to give a middle-finger to all of the world but can't get past the condo gates -- well secured so they can take their drugs and woo around.

(And I certanly don't say it from the viewpoint of the boring rockist that thinks sampling is lack of musicianship; i'm a big M.I.A., Animal Collective and Kanye West fan.)
