Primal Scream - More Light

Veteran Scottish drug-rockers Primal Scream have a new album called More Light coming out soon, and we’ve already posted their confrontational “2013” video. But the second of the album’s tracks they’ve shared, “It’s Alright, It’s OK,” takes the band completely out of the snarly garage-rock thing they’ve been working lately and pushes them back into the Stones territory they once spent entire albums exploring. The song has some seriously big and meaty hooks, as well as acoustic guitar and and bongos and pimp-roll pianos and a gospel choir, and I feel pretty comfortable calling it the best Primal Scream song since at least the Evil Heat era. (And I really liked the Evil Heat era.) Listen to it below.

  1. This is god awful.

  2. More like fake Traffic in fake Sly Stone mode than fake Stones. The Crowes crushed the shit out of this schtick 20 years ago, before they beat it to death. This just sounds like the Verve doing the Crowes doing Sly/Traffic. Weak. No edge. If you’re going to do retro-pastiche, go balls out and fuck it in the ass.
