Vanishing Point

Apparently the tide has changed for Primal Scream:

The new songs - 'Country Girl', 'Cars', 'Nitty Gritty', 'Suicide Sally', 'Bomb Drops' and 'Hole In My Heart' - confirmed rumours that the band have foregone their recent, electronically-influenced sound for a return to the straightforward rock 'n' roll of their 'Give Out But Don't Give Up' era.

: Primal Scream as an electronic rock act are amazing. After their last rock record, which the official review calls a "Rolling Stones-meets-Black Crowes monstrosity", they slowly got back into electronics with the trip hop beats of "Trainspotting" and the criminally ignored single "Kowalski" before they delivering their millennial masterpiece "Exterminator". No one else touches them when they experiment with electronics. However, the band's straight rock just doesn't cut it. Hopefully they will come to their senses soon enough and switch on a machine or two the next time they're near a studio.
