Best Prodigy album by far. Liam Howlett had to evolve musically & he did.

I'm just gonna go out and say it: I don't really get it.
One Love is a classic, and Break & Enter is pretty cool (thought it drags on for too long), but a lot of the other stuff is just kinda meh. I really don't like "Their Law", I don't get why everyone loves it so much, it's just boring electro industrial. There are some standout tracks here, like "Voodoo People", and "No Good (Start The Dance)" is an alt-dance classic, but the album really drags at 78 minutes.

this record together with several other 1994 techno, rave, ambient etc. records introduced me to the electronic music. even today, this one sounds so fresh and exceptional, everytime i play the cd, it still forces me to put the hand up in the air and start the dance. atmospheric and good for listening, too. do yourself a favor and go buy it. :)

The album was meant to have been longer, with a full mix of 'One Love' and an additional tune called 'We Eat Rhythm', however, this wiould exceed the amount a CD could hold so they had to put on the Edit of 'One Love' and cut 'We Eat Rhythm' out completely (it has since only appeared on a tape free with Select Magazine, it's a very tribal sounding tune, with no stabs or kicks). The 'Star Wars' sample on 'Full Throttle' had to be put on backwards at the insistence of Lawyers representing George Lucas.

What is needed left to say about this album. This album represents the quality and originality of 'The Prodigy' and Liam Howlett at the same time. Very diverse and powerfull album that shows that The Prodigy has developed from a young rave band to something more serious.

To bad they went a totally different way after this album, as I would have loved having a third album with tracks as full of energy as the ones on this album (and on 'Experience', too), something I miss on 'The Fat Of The Land'. The prodigy at this moment was far ahead of its time.
