    Having not heard screamadelica, I was unsure what to expect. Not only was I blown away but now I have a new found respect for acid house artists. I used to think the genre was pointless and had no future but now I get it

    A truly phenomenal album. Unquestionably their best and a fine send off for the Creation label. This record blew away all the chaff that was left at the end of the nineties. This is as far removed from easy listening as is humanly possible! Stand out tracks are too numerous to mention but the baselines in the title track and Shoot Speed Kill Light show Mani at his best.

    This album gets better each time I listen to it. If you like Thievery Corporation or any other Trip-Hop, or just instrumental groups. I recommend this album.

  1. The most exciting album in years....as punishing and urgent as any music you've ever heard.
  2. The angriest, least compromised, most utterly justified pop record in years ?

    Think of a universe far, far away, where Ministry, Raw Power-era Iggy Pop, Public Enemy, and Meat Beat Manifesto get together for a pissed-off, hyped-up jam. That's what XTRMNTR sounds like, and it's a downright amazing disc.
