lol, I saw more music for the jilted generation (basically the album +a cd of a few film clips) under the hardcore/punk/metal category of a music store, instead of the pop/rock section where all the house (and there wasn't any other edm stuff) cds were.

Fat Of The Land is like a legend to me. It got released when I was hooked up in electronic music for good and considering the popularity of Prodigy back then it resulted to listen to this album for like a million times. Even the lyrics and the punk/rock influences rocked my world. I think it was the most mature album Liam produced, with bigger than life anthems. The three famous trackS Firestarter, Smack My Bitch Up and Breathe are beyond belief. The first one is dark and twisted, SMBU is a real stormer and Breathe... Well Breathe is officially for me The Electronic Hymn. (And it also has the best videoclip e.v.e.r.)

So after a tough battle I think my vote will go to The Fat Of The Land. But of course both Their previous albums are 11/10.

My vote goes to FOTL too. Those tracks were anthems for me as well, used to choreograph myself to smbu , breathe & firestarter as a teenager. I too must have heard it like a million times, the cassette burned out :drama: never heard such music before back then , prodigy was responsible for me getting exploring the electronica genre. Heard jilted generation after that , was blown away by that too, but because i heard FOTL first it remains my all time favourite album.

I think Prodigy lost it after "Music for the jilted generation". "Experience" was great too, but I have to vote Jilted for the best.

DidnĀ“t like "Firestarter" or "Smack my bitch up". In my opinion the only great track made since Jilted is "Medusas path" on "Always outnumbered". :clapping:

Puh! Lots of namedropping there! :)

problem with "experience" is, that most of the tracks here are remixes that are not as strong as the originals on the singles. the original of "your love" and "charly" (charly single), g-force 1 and everybody in the place (everybody.. single), fire (fire single), ruff in the jungle bizness are better on the singles (IMHO). nonetheless i would choose "jilted" over "experience", because it is more matured and a conceptual work rather than a track-compilation.
i do not care about the last albums and FOTL has its highs and it's ultra-lows.

Didn't really like the new album at first, but I think it's growing on me.


Edit: Of course, it doesn't compare to earlier albums.

Yup. Jilted was their only true masterpiece, without question.

Jilted, followed by Experience then Fat.

Great memories of time spent at high school(outside of) in the mid 90's tie-in with these albums for me.

watch their clips on youtube, so funny

last two albums are great too, but different sound, but still genious works, Liam Howlett is really a genious when it comes to timing, .....putting it all tougheter!

When Music For The Jilted Generation came out it has blown me away.
For sure their best CD for me!

Apart from that they have some wicked tracks like 'Out Of Space', 'Narayan',..

The newer stuff is not really my cup of acid

Wow... all this hate for Invaders Must Die! I listened to it and thought it was immensely better than Always Outnumbered... To me it's close to (not quite though) their glory days, it's very throwback but it makes me feel like I'm a teenager again, in a good way. Seriously... I've been listening to the album quite a bit lately, I love the "Omen" track especially. Nothing new, it just does what it does really, really well.

What I think of Prodigy:

1. Name: pretty nieve, they're not really a prodigy
2. Music: Pretty crazy and messy I don't like it

All my High School buddies were into it. Most people have clueless musical taste don't they.
