Fire is a decent enough track, but amongst the wealth of classic material Liam produced up to '92 I think even he would agree that it is one of the weaker efforts.

Flip it over to get one of the absolute best Prodigy tracks of any era: Jericho.

This track is one of the most devastating oldschool rave tracks of all time, regardless of the fact it broke into the pop charts.

Pure evil on every level, from the sinister sub bass to the main riff which just screams terror.

And then you get the Genaside II remix, my God!!!

He ramps the track up into a sound that actually could sit alongside the "Big Beat" sound of '96! Just listen to the heavy as fuck kick!

Of course, there's still plenty of '91-'92 'ardkore flavour. Pure mosh, pure insanity.

So yeah, forget the Fire. Head straight to the b-side on this one.

Jericho is a great track. Even the Genaside mix is pretty good. Of course at 140+ BPM its almost Hardcore.

I think this was the last Prodigy EP I bought since the old Rave era started to die about 1992 (at least here in SF, US).
