Invaders Must Die

Biography

The claustrophobic confines of a west London attic hideaway. Walls, covered in heavyweight purple curtains seem to bring the dimly lit room's parameters collapsing in as a huge computer screen’s wallpaper radiates the green glow of long hot summer. Its pastoral image of feudal tranquility is the room’s only window on the world. Look closer and there's a twist in this ... Read more in Amazon's The Prodigy Store

5.0 out of 5 stars A Monster Of The Nineties April 29, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Anyone who experienced the music scene of the Nineties can surely remember The Prodigy as one of the most vivid acts of that decade. After releasing critically-acclaimed albums in the early 1990's such as "Music For The Jilted Generation," the British group went global with 1997's "Fat Of The Land." The hype and build-up for this album was absolutely incredible, having been preceded the year previously with two massive dance anthems which both hit No.1 in the UK and set new records.

The Fat Of The Land arrived in July 1997 like a tidal wave as a staggering 320,000 copies were sold in the UK in its first week (this would be around 1,600,000 if it had sold the same ratio in the US because America's population is five times that of the UK). This figure does pale somewhat in comparison to Oasis' "Be Here Now" which sold 700,000 in 72 hours in the UK alone a month later, but the statistics are still extraordinary; the music scene in the 1990's was like nothing seen since the 1960's, because here was a new generation, open, free, expressing themselves, and buying music in droves. The Prodigy were a part of that most definitely.

The Fat Of The Land boasts ten tracks of fast-paced, hyper, adrenaline-fuelled anthems; a mish mash of Techno, Heavy Metal, Dance and Electronica. Critics were not quite sure what to make of this album, because it was unlike anything that preceded it. Definitely ground-breaking, but not quite a perfect album.

It opens with the deliberately controversial "Smack My Bitch Up." This song had women's rights groups up in arms, and rightly so. The lyrical content is not something I agree with, but the song itself is a masterpiece of hard-hitting techno-driven beats, and the female vocal section in the middle is incredible.

Prodigy's music in The Fat of the Land portrays several scapes of electronica wrapped with traces of heavy metal and hip hop breakbeats. This CD shows just how talented Prodigy can really be. It is a complete representation of the mind, body, and soul that can be found in Electronic music.
My personal favorite track on this CD is Climbatize. The song still remains as one of my all time favorites. Climbatize is some INCREDIBLE ambience with luscious melodies that will completely stir all your deepest emotions. Other great songs, such as Smack My Bitch Up, Breathe, and Firestarter are purely meant for the dancing crowd.
Overall, this CD is amazing. You will never find anything like this, ever.
Don't forget to look for the other two Prodigy CDs, Experience and Music For The Jilted Generation. Both CDs are very different styles from Fat of the Land, but still good.

5.0 out of 5 stars A unique and terrific album June 6, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Some albums stand out from the pack either because they are unique or outstanding.
"The Fat of the Land" by The Prodigy stands out for both reasons. As any good dance album should, "The Fat of the Land" provides a raucous good time from start to finish. It is full of energy and inculcates the listener with that energy -- I think it's impossible to not feel like moving when this album is playing. Moreover, I really don't think that there is even one remotely weak song on this album.
However, what differentiates this album from others of its kind is that it is an odd dichotomy of dark and forboding and yet pounding and fast at the same time. I think that it serves up a different sound that I really haven't heard since.
"Breathe" and "Firestarter" are the two songs that people would be most familiar with -- and they weren't hits for nothing; they are contagiously feral and to this day their sound holds up. In addition to those two, I really like the songs "Smack My Bi*ch Up" (the song is just flat out pure energy -- you become its b*tch as it smacks you upside the head and exhorts you to dance, to move, to do anything but just sit there on your hands), "Funky Sh*t" (my favorite on the album due to its slightly eerie sound), and "Narayan".
If I feel the need to pump up the stereo with something that is fast-paced and energetic, I usually reach first for "The Fat of the Land." If you are a little tired of what the 2000s have served up so far and want to go back in time and explore the 90s, this is definitely one worth checking out. I'd be very surprised if "The Fat of the Land" didn't grab you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing dance & techno, the best ever March 30, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Just when you think an artist can't get any better...they do. Prodigy's music has grown since their time in England's underground techno scene, during which their first album, "Experience", was released. Afterwards, they followed up with "Music For The Jilted Generation", with some of the greatest techno songs ever released on there. This album shows how far Prodigy has come though, and how truly refined their music is. The whole album has the amazing feature of blending so many different styles of music. Hard rock and heavy guitars bring out the energy in "Breathe" and "Fuel My Fire", more defined techno tracks like "Climbatize" and "Mindfields" are present, as well as "Diesel Power", featuring the hip-hop vocals of rapper Kool Keith.
The purer techno sounds make up only a portion of the album, as said before, showing up in "Climbatize" and "Mindfields". "Narayan" is also a wonderfully crafted song, with some great vocals by Crispian Mills adding to the effect. All three of them show the genius writing and mixing of Liam Howlett, the genius behind The Prodigy.
This album also goes to prove that house and dance music isn't dead and still has some hope. "Smack My B**** Up" is a fast-paced, amazingly crafted song with an Indian vocalist by the name of Shahin Bada contributing to the song's stellar performance. Also, "Funky S***", with samples taken from a Beastie Boys song, is a great, faster techno or dance song.
As said before, "Diesel Power" is an amazing song which shows music that Prodigy hasn't dealt with on this level before, which is hip-hop.

Buy the album because every song is first rate. A rare rap/funk album where each song stands on its own but works brilliantly as a whole musical package. Love the cover art, too.
