I rank this is as one of the greatest albums in metal history.

This was the very first CD I ever bought in my life back in junior high.

Love the crunchy choppy chunky riffs and the rhythm of the songs.

Prong's "Beg to Differ", released in 1990, still holds its own after eleven years. Tommy Victor's guitar playing on this album is melodic yet still heavy and powerful (though it sometimes does flirt with 1980s hair-band multi-note classical scale soloing); Ted Parsons' drum playing has interesting fast-slow tempo changes on almost every song; and Mike Kirkland's bass playing unobtrusively grounds the heaviness of the music for ensured head banging. I would say the music on "Beg to Differ" verges on sounding "light" compared to some of the speed-metal and metal-punk that has proceeded it, but I think this album can still go head to head with some of these releases too. In terms of the lyrics, Victor's words convey an adolescent anti-authoritarian/anti-capitalist "sell out" anger mixed cryptic imagery pointing to the vacuousness of consumerism. While I now feel (at the ripe old age of 34) these lyrics sometimes take themselves too seriously, I would say that for the most part, they still work. Songs like "Right to Nothing" and "Prime Cut" have great angry imagery and metaphorical language that will either appeal to your sense of humor or your sense of adolescent angst. Check out "Beg to Differ" if you like speed metal with a melodic touch. It's definitely still worth a listen and can help cleanse you when you want to get that head banging, air drums/guitar anti-authoritarian release.

What was so great about these guys was the tribal repetitiveness of the interplay between the guitar and drums. It sounds like a war dance, and it should, because they were proteges of Killing Joke. The lyrics are excellent and intelligent, which is a rare thing nowadays. No love ballads, no cries out for radio-play (like they could hope to get any in 1990) just a gut-level, relentless hardcore/thrash assault.
Best Songs- "Your Fear", "Beg to Differ", "Take it In Hand", "Prime Cut", "For Dear Life"
This and "Force Fed" are the ones to get. "Prove You Wrong" and "Cleansing" are ok, but too industrial and commercial for my liking...

This album encouraged me to pick up a guitar. The production on this album is so pure, cold and sparse...might seem lightweight compared to their later work but has some killer riffs. "Your Fear" is a masterpiece, very original in its structure and probably my favourite prong song ever.

I am always wary of five star reviews for any album - let's face it, only a fan of the music would bother writing a review anyway, right? However, this album deserves every star it gets.

Like a lot of other reviewers I was sixteen when I first bought this album (on cassette) the year it was released. I can't remember why I decided to buy it, i think it was due to the cover artwork by Pushead - who did the cover art for Metallica's 'One' single, among others. On the first listen I was instantly impressed and hooked. It became part of the soundtrack to my last two years of high school, along with '...And Justice For All', 'The Real Thing', 'Frizzle Fry' and 'Nevermind', just to name a few (gee we were spoilt in the late eighties/early nineties).

Recently I found my old box of tapes and 'Beg To Differ' was the first one I grabbed and put in my stereo. I thought it might have sounded a bit dated, but it hasn't aged a bit. The album is as heavy as it is catchy and contains some of the most memorable metal riffs ever recorded. Tommy Victor shreds and his guitar has an incredible tone, while Ted Parsons (the most underrated drummer ever?) and Mike Kirkland lay down a such a thunderous rythym section that it's hard to believe you're listening to a three piece.

I cannot recommend this album highly enough to any fan of thrash metal or hardcore music. You're gonna love it. Trust me.

Quite possibly their best album. I've had it on cassette for many years but unfortunately it's begun to wear down and lose sound quality. If you've never listened to Prong before, this is a great album to start with.

Prong's early work only hinted at the success that Prong would endure on such later releases like CLEANSING and RUDE AWAKENING. The unit of drummer Ted Parsons, bassist Mike Kirkland, and guitarist/vocalist Tommy Victor began to show signs of coming together on FORCE FED, but with BEG TO DIFFER, they truly are coming into their own as a thrash unit of primal metal. They are smart musicians, and no doubt BEG TO DIFFER was on a path to prove that statement to be true.

Cuts like the ham-fisted title track and "Steady Decline" showcase the intricate riffs and powerful rhythms that Prong are truly capable of. The interesting addition of a live cover ("Third From The Sun") is actually welcome...Prong is a punishing live unit, and back in the days of BEG TO DIFFER and even during RUDE AWAKENING, Prong truly would rock on stage. Noteworthy cuts include the opening bark of "For Dear Life", the punish of "Your Fear", and the textured instrumental humorously titled "Intermenstrual D.S.B".

Prong would further advance their metal sound on PROVE YOU WRONG and the definitive CLEANSING, but BEG TO DIFFER was the album that truly showed that Prong was beginning to come together as a thrash-metal trio. BEG TO DIFFER remains an important piece of the Prong catalog.
