This week, Classic Albums is all about Primal Scream’s Screamadelica, one of the best albums to come out of the ’90s in the UK. In 2003, Pitchfork ranked it at No. 77 on its list of the Top 100 Albums of the ’90s. Screamadelica has sold over 3 million copies worldwide with a total of six singles released from the album.
There’s no overestimating the importance of Screamadelica, the record that brought acid house, techno, and rave culture crashing into the British mainstream. Like any dance music, this is tied to its era to a certain extent, but it transcends it due to its fierce imagination and how it doubles back on rock history, making the past present and vice versa.
Learn more about this important album in music history on the network premiere of Classic Albums: Primal Scream – Screamadelica Wednesday, March 28th at 9/8c on AXS TV.
