Product Description

Classic Album From The Prodigy A must have album from the prodigy, includes the massive tracks "smack my b#tch up", "firestarter" & "breathe"

Amazon.co.uk

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 Pattison

This album went to number 2 in the US Album charts and was PRODIGYS crossover album. Its there Rock Album although its still a dance band. Its still there biggest album by far and albums after it became more dancey again. I never brought an PRODIGY again as i,m one of those ROCK fans they attracted on this album. I also brought MUSIC FOR THE JILTED GENERATION but thats it. This cd most me pennies from Zoverstocks so go get it to remind us all dance doesn,t have to about nightclubbing.

I already have this album on tape, I spotted it at a great second hand price so bought it.
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

This album reminds me of why The Prodigy were once the kings of Dance Music. Each track is brilliantly constructed around the genres mentioned above, yet sounds totally unique and like no other track in that genre. However, I still prefer Liam's productions in their Oldskool Rave roots.

This is the Prodigy at its best. The tracks are so well executed, and Keith and Maxim provide mouth-watering vocals. Liam Howlett is a genius, and the techno-rock beats he creates are fabulous.
The best tracks are definetly Firestarter, Smack My Bitch Up and Breathe.
Enjoy!!

You must know the story by now. The Prodigy began in the beginning of the 90s, and managed to make a considerable impression with cheesy rave tunes such as Everybody in the Place and Out of Space, that collated to form their first album: Experience. Returning in 94 with some sophistication, they brought out Music For the Jilted Generation, with more serious hardcore records such as No Good (Start the Dance) and One Love, as well as the genre-blending brilliance of Voodoo People. The album went straight to the top and was nominated for a Mercury Music Award. By 96/7 they returned with The Fat of the Land, their double-platinum album that marked a massive change in style.
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.

Review for 2 disc LP version.

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)
