Released over ten years ago, Screamadelica still sounds fresh today. To these ears it stands as one of the best albums released in the ninties. The album was a significant departure from the band’s early indie rock sound, drawing inspiration from the house music scene that was becoming popular at the time of its production. The band enlisted house DJs Andrew Weatherall and Terry Farley on producing duties, although the album also contained a wide range of other influences including gospel and dub. Most of the tunes are very trip hop oriented then there are the blues rock flavorings that resemble the Stones at their peak. Screamadelica has received widespread acclaim, frequently appearing in critics’ lists and audience polls. Allmusic writer Stephen Thomas Erlewine called Screamadelica “an album that transcends its time and influence.
