Classic Album From The Prodigy A must have album from the prodigy, includes the massive tracks "smack my b#tch up", "firestarter" & "breathe"
Music For The Jilted Generation, despite commercial success, was a harsh underground rave statement proving that Essex rave auteur Liam Howlett could transcend the novelty acid house of many of his peers. Fat Of The Land, however, showed a very different side to The Prodigy; the exaggerated punk pastiche of "Firestarter" and "Breathe", with vocals provided by the band's cartoon Johnny Rotten, Keith Flint, proved that The Prodigy were, at heart, showmen. Fat was as influenced by American punk as it was by any form of dance music--demonstrated with a furious cover of L7's "Fuel My Fire"--and such a destructive, passionate fusion saw The Prodigy topping festival bills all over the world. Elsewhere, "Mindfields" and the irrepressibly controversial "Smack My Bitch Up" were brutal techno assaults, but driven by a defiantly heavy metal sensibility. Fat may have alienated the raving "old-skool", but it deservedly elevated The Prodigy to national public enemies. --Louis PattisonSee all Product Description

I love the album and its attitude, I also love the use of instruments and mixing, this is a great example of how it can work well. The whole thing brings together what was a new attitude and idea about mixing and overdubbing. Some of these songs only appeared fleetingly others lasted longer, its a case of the best did worst, Diesel Power was better than firestarter though I love them both, Smack My Bitch Up caused a bit of trouble in my house as my young son took to bouncing around to it and singing when his mother was around, but that is how infectious this album is.
Still great after all these years
should have been a 3 disc set with all of the original mixes.
maybe 4 discs with a dvd of the videos.
i suppose we'll have to wait for the 20th anniversary for more crabs!
Fat Of The Land: 15th Anniversary Expanded Edition
The best tracks are definetly Firestarter, Smack My Bitch Up and Breathe.
Record player and speakers, cannot be beaten and this album is made for LOUD on vinyl - fill your boots and enjoy
So we pick up with the album. The style has been called everything from techno and rave through to dance-rock. What is actually there is a fusion of hip hop, hardcore, punk rock and trace elements of everything in between. The album explores so many different styles over the ten tracks it can't really be classified. So instead of trying to generalise, let's look at it track at a time.
Smack My B*tch Up- A deliberately controversial opener, and not just for its vocals, this is probably the only techno track they've ever done. Its minimalistic, tuneless and totally focused on rhythmn, which is enhanced by the vocals. The fact they used it as their third single shows that the Prodigy name could carve routes into the charts for otherwise unprofitable genres. Certainly, the only other successful record of its type I know of is 'We Have Explosive' by The Future Sound of London.
Breathe- From the haunting guitar opening to the chilling video, Breathe is probably the most gritty record they've done.Read more ›
I'm not going to review the music as there are enough reviews on here,
Having owed this album since it 1st came out & still loving it to this day I decided to go out & buy the 2 disc vinyl version of this album hoping that it would sound better & I'd be able to give this a 5 star review. I put the LP on dropped the needle & to be honest the album was sounding fantastic (as expected) until I got the end of "Side C" & the track Narayan.
The track suddenly stopped & the LP went into it's runout groove. At 1st I thought I was hearing things as I expected the song to stop abruptly at the end & Firestarter would start the next disc. I went back & checked no I wasn't hearing things the song had been cut. I flipped the LP over & started "Side D" & expected to hear Firestarter start, wrong again. Narayan was still playing from exactly the point it stopped (even though the track is listed as Firestarter) for 2 minutes before going into Firestarter. Having had the CD I was used Narayan being a full track so this caught me by surprise.
You can either view this as a total screw up & let it ruin your enjoyment of a great album or you can view it as an extended intro to Firestarter. It's added a different element to this album (for me)
