"Best of Prodigy"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Still the best. All songs are outstanding.

"Never gets old still as fresh as ever"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

If you're into House, Techno or Alternative Dance music then this is for you.

Prodigy has been around for a couple of decades and this album is from a time where the guys were still experimenting with various formulas.

The unique tweets and twitters, base and percussions are signature trademarks that only Prodigy can reproduce within various realms of their more current music.

All scores are related. The tempo as fast and rivetting.

This never gets old and is as fresh as ever.

FAT OF THE LAND was nominated for a 1998 Grammy for Best Rock Album.

Among the most anticipated releases of 1997, The Prodigy's third full-length album is a bulldozing rock-techno hybrid. But while the guitar/samples/hyper-beats mosaic that made "Firestarter" an MTV breakout are found in every nook and cranny of this album, the overall building blocks are far more diverse, making it a tangible melting pot of pre-millennium pop styles.

There's a definite hip-hop element here. "Diesel Power," which features quality mic control by Kool Keith (of Ultramagnetic MCs and Dr. Octagon fame), is new-style hip-hop sculpture, applying techno and acid-house textures to apocalyptic ends. Both "Funky Shit" and "Smack My Bitch Up" are throbbing dance-floor ejaculations wrapped around, respectively, Beastie Boys and De La Soul refrains. Kula Shaker's Crispin Mills adds vocals to an Eastern-influenced trance workout called "Narayan." All this adds up to proof positive that THE FAT OF THE LAND is just the tip of the iceberg.
