Biography

The claustrophobic confines of a west London attic hideaway. Walls, covered in heavyweight purple curtains seem to bring the dimly lit room's parameters collapsing in as a huge computer screen’s wallpaper radiates the green glow of long hot summer. Its pastoral image of feudal tranquility is the room’s only window on the world. Look closer and there's a twist in this ... Read more in Amazon's The Prodigy Store

I bought it the week it was released back in '94 in my student days. I loved it right from the start and with each play it just sounded better. My favourite track is No Good (Start the Dance). How many nights did I spend on the dance floor in the Union sweating like a pig to that track?. I do like modern dance music but there's nothing like the power and agression of the Prodigy to give my speakers a good work-out and take me down memory lane to the days when I was so skint I had to make a pint last at least 2 hours.

When I first listened to Music for the Jilted Generation in 1994 it was unlike any album I had ever heard. 14 years later there is still nothing which comes close to the intensity, aggression and dark cinematic vision which is contained in every second of this record.

This edition has been remastered and and comes with a second CD of exclusive remixes and live tracks. For me the second CD is a bonus the real excitement came from realising the remastering was far from a gimmick. The album has a new polish which takes it to an even higher intensity of listening. Minor details now leap out with incredible clarity and sparkle with the overall sounds capes feeling even richer and more vibrant than before.

Additionally in the 1994 version of the album the intro to the song "The Heat the Energy" was tagged onto the back of the preceding song "speedway". This was an interesting idea but thankfully the track start point has been edited for this edition and the intro is now part of the main song.

This version of the album only compounds my love for it and seals it as the most original and compelling record I have ever heard.

Music For The Jilted Generation was the near perfect follow up to 1991's The Prodigy Experience. Released in 1994, it was unfortunately lumbered as being 'The Anti - Criminal Justice Bill' album. With tracks that hinted at anti autoritarianism, and criminal activities in general (Bugalry, Joyriding/Speeding, Drugs and the rocking 'Their Law', an anti police anthem, the likes of which have not been seen since NWA's heyday with F**k Tha' Police) the album bounds along at breakneck speed. Described by many as a concept album for the 90's, it will forever live in the memories of those who remember how pioneering it was upon its release. The multi faceted beats interconnect with the fascinatingly well manipulated samples perfectly and in total harmony. Layer upon layer of sound bombards your ear drums as you are taken on the ride of your life. You should have bought this album yesterday!

My first recommendation is to NOT drive to this album as you will become so high on the beats, you get done for speeding. I got this album after seeing 'stop the dance' video on MTV (ah back in the day)

case study 1: I remember cycling with this on my walkman (no mp3 or cd walkmans - tape). I remember getting to the destination alot quicker than normal.

case study 2: My friend was instucting an aqua aerobics class and used this album. Slow gentle movements replaced by fast ones, pumping the air.. next day could barely move. Now that's a work out!

What do you need to know. This album, this group is the sound of the 90's. The sound of the underground rave scene, the sound of the protest movement, the sound of those disaffected people fighting society to be able to live their lives, their way.. and f*k them and their law sums this up a treat. The inside album cover tells this story..

Not listened to Jilted for about 8 years (I have it on now) and bugger me, it's still as good today as it was then. Buy it if you like the Prodigy - you will love it. Much better than Fat. Prepared to be bouncing around like a nutter...

Stop the dance, voodoo people, poison, one love.. 3 kilos! It's the sound of my generation...

Music For the Jilted Generation shows a transition from the quirky all out dance sounds of their first album Experience (ie "Charly", "Wind It Up") to the deep angst big beats of Fat Of the Land. The last four tracks, starting with "One Love" seem to go back to the influences of their previous album. While "Voodoo People", "No Good" and especially "Poison" show where they were headed. So where are the weaknesses that usually occur when artists change their technique/style? There are none, this is a perfect and thoroughly enjoyable album made better all the better by the variation.

More brilliant than ever after four years. I came late to this album, unaware of its commercial success. It's now more than six years old, and easily outshines any dance album of today in its variety and depth. Unlike Experience and The Fat of the Land, every piece is a soundtrack to a distinct and moving theme. Aggressive and heavy, chill and spaced-out, and funky all at the same time and with catchy yet subtle samples to entertain further. I am frequently hooked on a particular track for the umpteenth time as a rhythm or melody leaps out to present a new angle to listening.
After so much exposure to 'Jilted', I now find virtually all club music dull, simplistic and repetitive. If it was all put together with such style and finesse, the world would be a more inspired and intelligent place.
If you only ever buy one 'dance' album , buy this one. It's probably all you'll ever need.
