Those two tracks may likely be the strongest, but it's a good album right through the end. It's all Liam Howlett here, as Keith Flint and Maxim don't contribute a lick, and perhaps for the best. Howlett's got his beats, his laptop, his toys, and he's generating a massive sound. Instead of vocals by Flint, we have a string of guests, most notably Juliette Lewis (whose Spitfire lyrics are so distorted I thought it was Zack de LaRouche at first), as well as Kool Keith, Liam Gallagher and others. I like how the guests are often so distorted that they sound like old samples, an interesting technique.
Basically, Howlett scrapped the direction of Prodigy after the lousy 2002 single Baby's Got a Temper, a lame ode to Rohypnol that came and went and is thankfully not included here. This is pretty raw, and promising. It remains to be seen if Howlett can come up a new 'thing' in less than seven years now.
Forget the critics, this is good, it's not deep stuff, it's loud, it's fist-pumping, you can move. There's nothing absolutely ground-breaking or anything to really make you think, but it's good at what it does.

Prodigy albums of late seem to have a knack for starting off big and going out with a bang. This album right here, I would have to say, is the first album to really perfect that. Read morePublished 9 months ago by Adam Baldwin
