A very good album by Prodigy but listening to Experience and Music for the Jilted Generation they are cleary the better side of Prodigy's music. Anyone not familiar with the Prodigy music should buy the other two albums to see what Prodigy are really like. I hope there next album will contain the cooler music style of the first two albums.

I bought "The Fat Of The Land" a week after it was released after hearing the genius of its first single "Firestarter." I thought to myself "if the rest of the album is as brain-bashingly brilliant as this, imagine what the record will be like!"
That was in 1997, and I still adore it to this day, having not stopped warping my head with it for 6 years. It offers a catalogue of experiences and thoughts, throughout its 10 track duration. Highlights include "Breathe", "Mindfields" and "Fuel My Fire."
From personal experince, the element of Prodigy that I find so unique and remarkable is there ability to make you use+lose your head symmaltaneously. This is mirrored in "The Fat Of The Land." It is famous and infamous, beautiful and butt-ugly and also has one of the most well known covers in music history. When a track on "The Fat Of The Land" begins, a gaping abyss is torn into your brain and filled to bursting with thoughts and emotions. When the track ends, the hole is closed instantly and you are returned to normality. Nowhere is more apparent than on "The Fat Of The Land." It is their masterpiece and should be reserved a shelf in history and one in the future too, as it so clearly belongs in both.
If you're wondering whether or not to purchase this album, "PEOPLE LIKE YOU JUST FUEL MY FIRE!"

Some of the great prodigy tracks

but not all i must say. If you take away one element of the music it becomes reasonably average music, but it is those little bits, quirks in the music that make it unmistakably The Prodigy.

Buy it. Rave.

Nearly 14 years old and still unbeatable. Prodigy at their best. Appeals to just about everyone out there. Never off my playlists, at work or at play. What more can I say? Psychosomatic, addict, insane...

The Prodigy produced this album after being sent to the top of the musical nation's "greatly anticipated albums" list with the stonking single "Firestarter". No-one could deny that this single was a classic, featuring a catchy, heavy riff, tube tunnel video, and the consciously Lydon-esque singing of Keith Flint.
Following this kind of success with albums is actually quite rare, and with dance bands, truly great albums are like Dodo poo. The last really great album being the previous Prodigy effort!!
When the Prodigy's "Fat Of The Land" did come out, it was treated with trepidation. As a commercial prospect, it stood to bridge the rarely crossed gap between dance and rock (I know a U2 fan who liked it!) and therefore make big piles of money. As a musical prospect, it is superbly polished, and very involving.
The deliberately controversial "Smack My Bitch Up" and "Breathe" form a staggering intro to the album, but as a whole, the pace never lets up for a minute. Compared to the Prodigy's previous two albums (I never thought much of the first one) the mood is much heavier and rockier, and in my opinion, a lot more fun. While I would not take anything away from MFTJG for a second, this is the more rounded, complete album.
So, in closing, I'd give it four stars, because as I said, I'm looking back, and it is difficult to look rose-tintedly at an album which is so amazingly commercial, but if you liked any of the singles, You will like the album.
