The Prodigy - World's On Fire

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

5.0 out of 5 stars Tasty-nice 17 Jun 2004
Format:Audio CD
Yeah, so I'm a prodigy fan, you wouldn't be buying this if you weren't. But my soft spot lies in the random remixes, which this single provides a fine pair of exmples.
So tasty I damn-near ate the speakers. Really, buy this, it's not going to break the bank...

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 11 April 2001
Format:Audio CD
If you had to buy this single , buy it for the excellent No Man Army which features Tom Morello of RATM . I'm not a fan of RATM but this is rockin' . The Mindfields dub is poor , the remix of SMBU is OK but it is good nevertheless

5.0 out of 5 stars Sex, Drugs, and Violence 22 July 2000
By J. Taylor - Published on Amazon.com
This is the video that made MTV run a brief 30 second MTVNews spot to warn AMP audiences about the content of the video. They tried to keep it from us by showing it at 2:00 in the morning, now you can own it at home. This video is simply amazing, directed by Jonus Ackerland, who also directed one of Madonnas videos, it won breakthrough dance video at the MTV Video awards in 97. As is its an amzing video and at the end of the video itself is a twist that makes the video the greatest Prodigy video of all time, if not one of the greatest all-round videos of all time, be warned though, its not for the faint of heart, contains, nudity, alcohol use, drug use, and several scenes of grotesque acts (vomitting for instance).

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't Believe the Hype 5 Dec 2002
By Luis Hernandez - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
One of the best bands to be signed on Madonna's Maverick label, Prodigy produced a smash hit song and plenty of controversy when "Smack My Bitch Up" was released in the United States in 1997. The song which was used in a major scene in the film "Charlie's Angels" incorporates eletronica, rock, and Middle Eastern music in providing the listener with a throbbing, enjoyable tune. This maxi-single contains several versions of the song, however I am still a big fan of the original album version. The other remixes are okay.
However, with the political correctiveness that runs the world today, many feminists and anti-domestic violence advocates caused a stir in the media saying that this song was sexist and degrading. With media news hounds interviewing such people and groups as Denise Brown (sister of murder victim Nicole Brown Simpson) and N.O.W., many rush to criticize Prodigy when in fact the title totally means something else in British slang (a similar case was when the film "Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me" was released in the USA; the term "shag" doesn't mean anything offensive in the USA, however the film was retitled for release in the United Kingdom, because the term "shag" is used as an expletive in that country's lingo).
Overall, "Smack My Bitch Up" was one of 1997's best songs. Madonna is one smart business woman if she is able to sign this great band on her label before anyone else could. What a great band and song!

5.0 out of 5 stars Review of it 23 Nov 2005
By Ivy League Student - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The excellent rave/techno song "Smack My Bitch Up" is often misunderstood. Case in point: N.O.W. claiming that it promoted violence against women. Rather, the song is about the drug heroin. "Smack" is slang for heroin; "my bitch" refers to the vein/artery in the arm used to inject the drug. The controversial video for the song explicitly shows someone shooting up heroin, then going club-hopping, to a strip-club, throwing up, and basically having a drugged-up night. This explains the mood of the song. So don't worry that the song promotes misogynistic attitudes; rather, it's a very thinly veiled "When I got high..." story, as evidenced by the video.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great knife for the price. 27 Dec 2012

Sharp out of the box. Very secure sheath. I wrapped the handle with paracord for a better grip and it still disappears under a shirt.
