Despite being mocked by the music snobs for being such a fun album and not taking itself seriously, this is one of the massive land mark albums of 90s UK dance music, bringing breakbeat and hardcore to the mainstream more than any other group apart from maybe Altern 8 and Ragga Twins. It still sounds good over 25 years later.

I agree that 'Experience' and its expanded version is the best of breakbeat/hardcore can offer of its time.
Yeah i forgot Metalheads (Rob/Goldie)/ Rufige Kru. and of course the Tom & Jerry project of Marc & Dego. Did you mean Mark Ryder? Yeah that guy was pretty involved with alot of projects for the rave scene :)

Really was leagues above 99% of the "hardcore" out at the time, the energy that Liam was able to inject into his productions was pretty incredible.
Early Prodigy like Pendulum was embraced by the "underground" for their songmanship, sound quality and progressive take on their respected scenes but the "serious heads" very quickly distanced themselves from them claiming they hijacked their precious scenes and took it to the masses and Prodigy music overnight magically turned into pop, jealousy is a curse.
Problem was that 92 was moving so fast and to make an album of 12 tracks took a lot of time and 6 month old tracks were nearly out of date.
By the time this was finally released Liam was well past this sound both creatively & in regards to production quality.

For me its all about - Hyperspeed (G-Force) awesome tune, sampling a tune of one of the hip hop electro series albums from the 80's.

It's funny that albums such as this and Altern 8 - Full On Mask Hysteria which were at the time mocked and considered somewhat of a joke to my ears have aged the best. One of the best dance albums ever imo.

One of the key records that got me into electronic dance music. I used to annoy the shit out of my non-raver friends with this one for a year or more. Still such a killer album.

there's quite a difference between comparing records and just enjoying them. people that say it's cheesy probably compare too much. i listen to lots of complex electro, but still can enjoy this record as-it-is. my favorite prodigy album, fun, sunny and ravey as hell

This album is so much fun, I don't care if it's cheesy, but every track is a fun! even after 20 years this album still delivers!
