In many ways the forgotten single from Music For The Jilted Generation. Originally released on white under the alias Earthbound, One Love at one point was apparent proof that The Prodigy could make more underground and valuable music than commercialised rave- a response to that particular criticism. However, when compared to the album it eventually featured on, that quality has dated badly.

You can get the edit of One Love and Full Throttle on Jilted Generation, and the remix here is nothing interesting. The only real reason to check out this single is the B-side Rhythm of Life. A dark, gnarly and energetic breaks track, it sounds like an early ancestor of Voodoo People and fits the same not-quite-jungle non-genre. That this track has been largely lost in the mists of time while One Love and Full Throttle were somehow deemed superior and put on the album is a tragedy.

A version of MFTJG with Rhythm of Life replacing Full Throttle would have elevated an already brilliant LP that little bit further. A great chance missed, sadly.
