A total classic, and an album to scare the pants off all the softy One Direction/The Voice types today.

I remember at the time being a bit underwhelmed by it, I think it was a combination of being very much in love with the whole rave feel of the 'Experience' album and also them changing and coming into the Big Beat thing and I was fearing they were going the way of that current fad. However I need not have worried.

As we all know the best bands constantly evolve and change, you can't stay the same really (except for a few). Majorly flavoured by Liam Howlett's penchant for Front 242 at the time, you can feel the Belgian's influence rippling through the beats and basslines throughout the album.

Apart the obvious 'Poison', 'One Love' and 'Voodoo People', I feel there are better tracks on this album, such 'Full Throttle' (which brings a little memory of the Rave scene back into focus), 'Speedway (Theme from Fastlane)' which really sounds like what it says on the tin and gets you going. Then its the brooding, heavy broken beats of 'The Heat (The Energy)'. Following that up is the epic 'Narcotic Suite' containing the trio of '3 Kilos' (a little techno Jethro Tull anyone to start us off slowly, also with an essence perhaps of the laid-back vibe of San Fran thrown in for good measure?). Then off we go to the chiming, bubbling bounce of 'Skylined' before we are led into the pulsing, menacing breakbeat stomp of 'Claustrophobic Sting'.

How very Prodigy to start off a trio of songs all relaxing and then lead us into a crazy, dark space! Back when electronica had teeth.

Experience may be musically superior but Jilted generation is where the Prodigy truly come together, the use of Maxim on Poison was a stroke of genius and No good is one of the most important dance tracks of the 90s, Sadly they haven't reached this height since and each album after has gotten worse.

Good quality item arrived early. Worth getting this instead of a d/l for the car.
