About this item

"Beautiful Future" is Primal Scream's tenth album release and their first for B-Unique. As you would expect from one of Britain's most exciting and inventive bands "Beautiful Future" displays a heady mix of genre crunching taking in Philly soul, dark electro, accelerated rock n roll riffs and pure British pop all given that particular Scream edge. Highlights include the single "Can't Go Back", which is the kind of high energy rock n roll the band excel at, all kinetic drum beats and scuzzy guitar riffs, everything moving at methamphetamine rate. Elsewhere, there's a duet with CSS' Lovefoxxx, "I Love To Hurt (You Love To Be Hurt)" that's full of shivering electro pulses and tense, claustrophobic rhythms. Lovefoxx isn't the only guest to appear on the album, joining Bobby on a duet of Fleetwood Mac's "Over And Over" is legendary British folk singer Linda Thompson, while Queens Of The Stone Age's Josh Homme contributes guitar to the album's closing track "Necro Hex Blues".
