Primal Scream – Chaosmosis

With Primal Scream’s breakthrough album Screamadelica celebrating its 25th anniversary, it’s clear that the band’s smash third record has been on Bobby Gillespie’s mind lately. After years of experimentation, touching on everything from industrial to trip-­hop to psychedelica, the Scottish band’s 11th studio album, Chaosmosis, is something of a homecoming, returning to the sounds that first gave them international fame. Revisiting the acid house leanings of their early ’90s records might be an exercise in nostalgia. After such a long and diverse history, it feels like Gillespie and company aren’t trying to recapture some faded glory like so many other ’90s rockers, ­­but rather are expanding the reaches of a palette left untouched for almost two decades.
