So I was totally trolling A Readiohead Message Board, who were trying to claim that RH were "innovative" because they mixed krautrock with electronic dance music, which was a party trick that Andrew Weatherall and Primal Scream were doing back in 1990. But that was one of those moments where I realised that - despite the fact that I was ostensibly trolling and trying to wind people up - it's a far more legitimate comparison than I intended, because though Primal Scream vs Radiohead is a joke, Screamadelica is a thing unto itself.
So what say you? Which indie-dinosaur dabbling with dance music and deciding they liked the waters there produced the better album. (And this is not a contest between the two bands, but between those two specific albums.)
