The Prodigy's Christmas present for the people... a new single, free to download.
After having listened to some of their recent music, this was a surprise. Nice distorted 303-like synthline in it (BABY!).
'Always Outnumbered Never Outgunned' was a let down to me, so Im really looking forward to 'Invaders Must Die'. The title track and 'Omen' convinced me that it's going to be a nice album. I guess Im the only person on this planet who actually likes 'Invaders Must Die'
Music is strange... Sometimes I just need a dose of heavily distorted synths, pumping beats or skippediskip breaks, acid lines, heavyguitars, rap/yelling. I haven't been listening to all this for a long time, and there was a period of time where I didn't listen to anything else but this kind of music. I guess I have passed those days bit though
I was thinking about the album today and now I see it was not only me
I would advice to find everthing by prodigy every track from every release as there are about 2 times more tracks than there are on albums (b-sides, eps etc) and then I am sure you wil like it at least to make your bes of album
None of their albums sound the same. Still they all have that Prodigy/Howlett sound. 'Experience' is the biggest outsider of them all. It's more rave-ish with faster beats. It definitely sounds like somthing from the early 90's. I prefer the two later album 'Music for the Jilted Generation' and 'The Fat of the Land'.
Now listening to the album... At the first impression, it sounds okay. Worth listening, but nothing really new. Again a load of distorted synths, fast drumloops and echoing voices, like we're used to with The Prodigy.
Especially both versions of "Omen", and "Colours" and "World's on Fire" are really nice, the rest is just the usual stuff...
I'm not that fond of the mastering though. It lacks some depth and some decent low- and hi-end.
Imho worth listening, but not as good as Experience or sth.
