5.0 out of 5 stars the big number..., 18 July 2004
This review is from: Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned (Audio CD)
With the state of dance music today being all about what is in mode and motion (i.e. the media flavouring the publics tastes), it is such a relief that a real 'heavyweight' album has finally had so much riding on it.
Everyone sounds tired at the minute - Orbital, Faithless and Massive Attack losing notches of significance everyday. So with the old-guard completely out of it, we look elswhere - sure The Rapture really did start altering the boundaries last year with the superlative ' Echoes'. Furthermore, Tiga, Mylo, LCD Soundsystem and Junior Boys are all sounding mega this year as dance music as an umbrella term gives nods to electro. But what if we just wanna rave? That's where this highly important return from the Progigy comes in...
Twelve tracks encompassing some staggered and erratic guest performances, it seems like a real bolt from the blue. I mean, Ping Pong Bitches?!? Oasis?!? Kool Keith?!? And then some! But given a chance, the album sings itself justice in the extreme.
The tracks that blast the Prodigy back into the big-time would have to be 'Hotride' , 'Pheonix' and 'Spitfire' all sounding like an explosion in a paint factory - wild colours coming at you from all angles. The latter of those three opening up the album with an Indian warbling bass and vocals (try Horsepower Productions meets Turkish Delight advert!) and being the perfect bold statement to make.
In fact each of the 12 tracks on this triumph are better than 2002 single 'Baby's Got A Temper' which perhaps wasn't as bad as all the stick suggested. Anyway whatever - Prodigy have come back all out in complete cavalier style. It has payed off so well and consequently puts forward the idelogy that musicians should take more risks with their work. Well done Liam Howlett. Bang on!
