Who says this album lacks punch?,

This review is from: Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned (Audio CD)
This album certainly sounds different to previous stuff done by the prodigy. The most likely reason is the absence of Keith Flint and Maxim. Then again, most bands sound different when their trademark vocalists are absent - (take the sneaker pimps for example).
There's also a lot more female vocals and tooty-beepy sounds scattered around the place which give it that basement jaxx feel.
I like to think of this album as "Basement Jaxx - Kish Kash" on steroids. It has bucketloads of bassy, distorted guitars which is a good thing for rock lovers like me :). For this reason is it any wonder why it's going to sound different to anything the prodigy have done in the past?
To best describe the average song - take "serial thrilla" from "fat of the land", and replace Keith Flint's vocals with some Basement Jaxx/groove amada type vocals.
Contrary to what many are saying, there are better tracks than 'girls'. My pick is 'spitfire', 'memphis bells' and 'get up , get off'. Absolutely awesome album.
