Wow, Firestarter was written by the Art of Noise Crew? Interesting.

Apparently it was only ever meant to be an instrumental track for Wipeout for the PlayStation?

What is the Drum and Bass remix of this that Andy C has been playing?

I remember this CD was the first purchase I made in relation to The Prodigy. Yet, it was one of the very few CDs that I ended up throwing away. Not because I hated the song or anything, but I felt like there was no point owning a single that only had an edited version and an instrumental. After I got the full album, it didn't make sense to hold onto this CD (and the instrumental version was on Wipeout XL). Nowadays looking at all the other version of this single that was offered, I seriously got gypped. God knows how much I spent at tower records for this single, probably like $10 because it was labeled an "import" or whatever. Oh well, live and learn.

Beware of this version. It is highly overcompressed and music is strongly distorted. Other pressings on CD sounds better and has lower ReplayGain attenuation values.
