Well Breathe is officially for me The Electronic Hymn. (And it also has the best videoclip e.v.e.r.)


:D

I'm with Abasio on this one..

I listened a lot to Charly and Out of Space back in the early nineties but when they started playing No Good on the radio a few years later, that's when I became really hooked.. I quickly bought Music for the Jilted Generation and totally loved it, and also rediscoreved The Prodigy Experience (before this I had only listened to the singles from this album). This is when breakbeats & bigbeats & underground "rave" & dance electronica became my first real musical love affair..

I can't rellly say which is best of Experience or Music for the Jilted Generation since they are so very different, both are huge classics in their own way.

The Fat of the Land was the beginning of the end of The Prodigy's greatness for me, it has some nice hits and fat beats but is ultimately pretty unsatisfying and lacks the depth of the previous two albums. Kind of a one trick pony. Some tracks are great but some are pretty crap.

Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned sucks, IMO. There's maybe one track that's ok, but the rest is just annoying. I hardly even acknowledge it as a "real" Prodigy album since I don't feel it has any connection to the first two masterworks.

I like Out Of Space, Firestarter, Wind It Up, Fire, Poison, No Good, and almost all of their songs...From The Fat Of The Land I like the most Diesel Power, Mindfields, Smack My Bitch Up, Narayan...They were the first band that I was impressed with, back in nineties, and that Rave years. That last album Always Outnumberd, Never Outgunned is also good, but not like their first albums, I like Memphis Bells, Hotride, Medusas Path, etc.

Liam is a fantastic producer that IMO doesn't get enough credit for what he's done.
The prodigy is like 95% Liam :ph34r:
Hope the new stuff is really ravey :D

That he is. :)

He makes all the music alone. The others do vocals or dance.

I feel fortunate that music for the jilted generation is the only album of theirs I own, but it is indeed very nice. I think I might buy their more jungley album before it though, I'd probably enjoy that more.

muchos gracias, Rez :)
I'd only like one with better visual quality ... is there any?

That's actually the second best videoclip ever :D

ah, I see :D
it's the best for me though...

Anything similar (video-wise)? Prodigy doesn't seem to have any :(

music for the jilted generation was the first cd i got from them when i was a kid (10 a 11 years i guess)

still my favorite...

The Heat, Speedway, Full Throttle, 3 kilos, skylined, etc.... all mighty fine tracks


Fat of the land i never really appreciated, except for a track or two (smack my bitch up is one)

With Experience they were kindof searching their way. Good first effort, but quality-wise it was totally blown away by Music for the Jilted Generation. Even if I liked Fat of the Land, I didn't really agree with their over-use of vocals. IMO that music would've worked much better without Keith Flynt and Maxim screaming all the time on top of the tracks. However, Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned was CRAP!!! Only Spitfire got my attention, the rest was so crap I'll never understand what the hell was Liam thinking when releasing it.

Liam Prodigy - Back To Mine http://www.discogs.com/release/614340 <-- Never heard this one.

Prodigy - The Dirtchamber Sessions Volume One http://www.discogs.c...se/150343?ev=rr <-- Liam was supposed to release a second chapter in this Dirtchamber Session series, but because of dissepointing sales.. It was canned.

Personly I as most enjoy the JILTED album most. The Narcotic Suite has always been a very special outro to the album with it`s heavy 3 Kilos and it`s Claustrophobic end. I did try these tracks on acid without a great wow amazing result though..

Music for the jilted generation by far.....trip through party memory lane....

another song that needs to be mentioned here from "Music...": Full throttle...mmm....




The Fat of the Land was the beginning of the end of The Prodigy's greatness for me, it has some nice hits and fat beats but is ultimately pretty unsatisfying and lacks the depth of the previous two albums. Kind of a one trick pony. Some tracks are great but some are pretty crap.


Same for me....never gotten into The Fat of the land.....some good songs yes...but something was missing for me....perhaps it lacks soul....allthough that track Narayana (or something like that): excellent track!!

Never bothered for what came next.....

I DL'ed the Promo 'Invaders Must Die', surly this is a joke, a scam made by Liem him self to fool us. The music is terrible, edgy and fresh/hard. But terible.
This is not music for the Jilted Generation, this is music for the disturbed retired punk electro generation..
