Give Primal Scream credit for keeping you guessing. Look across their discography, and you’d have a bit of trouble cramming them into even a generous-sized box—from the acid-house induced Screamadelica to the kinetic XTRMNTR to their dalliances with southern-fried Stones-influenced rock (which I’ll be the first to admit a strange affection for). And now with Beautiful Future, they’re gone downright poppy. As with any of their records, there are a few clunkers, but I think it all works well for the most part. Bring on the future!
Glory of Love
