About this album

XTRMNTR is a 2000 album by Primal Scream. In a departure from Primal Scream’s earlier hedonistic recordings, the band took a more political stance, attacking government, police, and multinational corporations. A free postcard championing the cause of the “Free Satpal Ram Campaign” and encouraging fans to participate was included with initial copies of the album’s UK release.

The album is also notable for being the final LP release on the influential British label Creation Records. The track “Accelerator” was later lifted from the album to become the last single to be released on the label. Although Gary Mounfield joined the band in 1997 and recorded a selection of tracks on the album Vanishing Point, it was the first time he shared songwriting credits with the band and his first full album since his time in The Stone Roses.

The album was extremely well-received, and is recognized as one of the two definitive Primal Scream albums (the other being Screamadelica).

In 2001 Q magazine named it as one of the 50 Heaviest Albums Of All Time. NME magazine (12/30/00, p. 77) rated the album #2 in its “Top 50 Albums Of The Year 2000”.

Online music magazine Pitchfork placed XTRMNTR at number 142 on their list of top 200 albums of the 2000s. NME placed XTRMNTR at number 3 on their list of top 50 albums of the decade.

    I never took Primal Scream seriously because of stuff like Rocks, but then they came out with this album and it just freakin' blew me away! Still a fave of mine.

    Apart from Bobby's typically brain-dead lyrics (SICK FUCK SICK FUCK SICK FUCK, really?) and some meh tracks, solid. Probably the last awesome Primal Scream album too...

    This is my first time listening to this band, and I've never ever encountered anything quite like them. I'm loving this band on my first hear-through! (BTW that never happens)

    Kevin Shields' guitar sound on Insect Royalty, makes my ears cum.

    MBV Arkestra is proof that you can completely 'trip out' (hate that term) while being totally sober.
