great album. Nearly every song is based on samples here but that doesn’t matter.
My older sister bought me this album when i was 10 years old. Great album and good memories. I lost the cassette and bought the cd in 1996 but then i threw it away but in 2019 i bought the digital album

A testament to the carefree raving times. Unpretentious, a bit raw and rough on the edges, but the heaps of fun Liam obviously had while producing this album is radiating from every second. Let's hyperspeed the beat, let's pitch up vocals, let's sample a kids' tv show, then let's sample some reggae as well... and what do you know - the result is a landmark in dance music, and an album that got many into electronic music. I still remember my amazement when I heard "Everybody in the place" for the first time.

Still got that heat!! Worth it for charly and outer space alone imo, its also full of great tracks that are amazingly good especially considering this being written in the early 90's

Quite simply, their best ever effort! What a raver I was when I was 12!!! Getting stoned in a darkened room around my mate's house, with huge speakers and bass bins all over the place... ah, such sweet memories... =OD

One day, back in early 1992, I was reading a copy of "Alternative Press" in which a wanker... er... no, he was a wanker, who ran a column typically berating electronic music came out guns firing on this album, making fun of the chipmunk vocals, arrangements, whatever else. Needless to say such criticism made me think the Prodigy were on to something,, And they were! While the vocals were occasionally annoying, this album burst at the seams with creativity, something which was in short supply in the rave scene at that very time.Where Liam and company went after that magical summer is your call but this album is a treasure for me.

I bought this cd back when it was first released from central station records in the early nineties without really having any knowledge about the artists or the music at all.

What I certainly did know was that I absolutely loved that sound. I heard "everybody in the place" on the radio and bought the single. Id never heard anything like it - was absolutely amazed at the energy and beats.

That was about 15 years ago.

I now own every single and every CD they ever released, however this one holds a special place in my heart as it was really the beginning of what was to become a real love for an amazing and groundbreaking dance music group.

Im looking forward to seeing them perform again at the Big Day Out here in Australia.

This amazing album was truly the kick start for me and many others i"m sure,although i first heard it in the summer of 1995.
The remarkable thing about the whole album in general,is that,with all its sampels of breaks,piano breakdowns,pitched up female voices and of course the ragga vocals,the funny thing is that,there is not an "Amen" break sample to be heard in any track.
All in all this album is the best CD , ever cross this earth it is the root off all styles,concerning the oldskool/jungle rave era.
Today after 12 years of listening to this album,it still gives me goosbumps...each and every time i play it!
Actually i played it, just an hour ago, and as it is titled "The Experience",its truly is an experience even if one would play it 50 years later -Timeless!

To bad The Prodigy thried muttering on after 'Music For The Jilted Generation'. Although there are some brilliant tracks on 'The Fat Of The Land', it cannot beat their two first albums, of which 'Experience' is very dear to me.

I got this album from the library years after it was released (probably somewhere in 1994) and I almost want to keep it. This was my first electronic album that I really loved. The cassette was in my walkman always for almost a year.

The reason why this album is so good is that all the songs are very original and were never equalled. On top of that, the tracks on this album in my opinion express the joy Liam Howlett had while making them. The melodies are fantasitic, as are the breakbeats and drums in all the songs. After hearing them 20 times you can still discover more tings and basslines interwoven with other layers.

This album definetely was my first experience in the electronic music world that I entered and haven't left so far!

Good album but it could have been great. Why oh why did Liam Howlett put inferior versions of 'Your Love' and 'Everybody In The Place'? Easily the best version of 'Your Love' is the Original Mix and the best version of 'Everybody In The Place' is the Fairground Remix. If those two had been included this would have been a stellar collection.
