It was the compilation that has a subgenre named after it, here given no less than 50 bonus tracks. Was that necessary? No. Is it still a blast to get through? Hell yeah.

Counterbalance No. 85: Primal Scream's 'Screamadelica'

Gonna dance to the music all night long, gettin' high, gettin' happy gettin' gone with the 85th most acclaimed album of all time. A 1991 rave-rock landmark is our next Counterbalance.

Music

Canyons: Keep Your Dreams

Canyons' informal tribute to the dance music they love touches base with its bygone referents without ever surpassing them.

Music

Serena-Maneesh: S-M 2: Abyss in B Minor

This album was meant to be a “rock ’n’ roll chamber of magic", but, in truth, the end result is more like a distorted hall of mirrors that render an otherwise skinny person into something fat and ugly.

Music

Primal Scream: Riot City Blues

Riot City Blues sounds like it's been made by a band on rock and roll autopilot. It's a record of pastiche pieces, without the sense of impending danger or collapse that makes truly great rock and roll so thrilling.
