Live by "Their Law",
This review is from: Their Law: The Singles 1990-2005 (Audio CD)
For me, the Prodigy are the most important British band of the nineties. Their music is innovative and unlike anything else around.
Their greatest hits album showcases their work as they transform from a rave era band into dance-metal pioneers. It includes some of their most famous works from Charley (which spawned a host of copycat sampling records) through to Firestarter (famous for having a video deemed to frightening for Top of the Pops) and then tracks from their last album.
My only disappointment with this album is that there are three prodigy singles that are missing. Baby's Got a temper was a top 5 hit in 2001, Fire was the double A side from the Jericho single, and Where Evil Lurks was the first ever Prodigy release (and all but impossible to get hold of). These tracks, along with the ultra-rare Mindfields (Monkey Mafia Remix) mean that this album is not quite the ultimate Prodigy collection.
Hopefuly that will come out in another 15 years time.
