The Prodigy has always been a very talented and innovative group, starting in the early '90s on the underground scene and developing from there. Across the 15 years of making quality music, they have scored 3 number 1 albums ('Music For the Jilted Generation', 'Fat of the Land' and their recent album, the superb 'Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned') as well as multiple top 10 hits, including 2 number 1s, one of which, 'Firestarter' held it place in the UK charts for almost 8 months.
Prodigy were so big in the mid '90s that their 1997 album 'Fat of the Land' managed to secure the US number 1 slot, further more obscure that a British act of such genre would achieve so highly, although rightly deserved. Each of their singles shows great talent and a large deal of time and effort put in, this is experimental stuff, but the formula produces the perfect output, each song is different from the last and listening to this Singles: 1990-2005 album, you will recognise some tunes instantly as the majority were used in advertisements and film, try "(You'll Be) Under My Wheels" or "Spitfire", although every song here is a sure-fire hit.
While you have the chance, snap this limited edition album up, browsing the bonus disc selection, it is definitely worth the extra £3 (which is the cost of a CD single) including many live versions of their classic hits (and the Prodigy are amazing and incredibly diverse live) and as an extra bonus, includes some brand new hits which will become singles, such as the incredible "Back 2 School" recently performed at 'T in the Park', which isn't available on the regular version of this collection.
To sum it up, if you haven't heard much of the Prodigy, or own just a few of their songs, buy this collection, I'm pretty sure you'll soon be wanting more from their superb back-catalogue.
Good news, Prodigy fans; The Prodigy have announced they are releasing a brand new studio album in 2006.
