You are on the page of the best big beat album of all time, period. Technically, "Saturday Teenage Kick" is (a bit) more well constructed than "The Fat Of The Land".
From "Underachievers" to the hidden "Mulu", the adrenaline remains at 100%. Huge beats + 303s + live notes + Rudeboy's vocals = perfect formula.
What else to say ? Everything is so good that it is very tricky to pick a favorite. To my mind, due to my video game history, I think that "No Remorse" is the eventual winner. I have goosebumps everytime I heard this combination of bass, beats & acid at the second minute.
Is it possible to give this less than 5/5 ? I don't think so. The ideal soundtrack of any video game.
However, do not listen to it while driving in real life ! Like a +500hp sports car, it is a driving license killer.
There's simply none album similar to this first JXL album, even within the big beat scene.
To finish, I would like to say thank you, Mr. Holkenborg. Now, let's celebrate the 20th birthday of this monument that is "Saturday Teenage Kick".

I've been listening to this again over the past week and I'm starting to realize why I loved this album so much as a teenager. The only band that I know of that has even come close to the spice that Saturday Teenage Kick has is the Prodigy - and even they're not on the same kind of level that this album is on (then there's Urban Dance Squad, but that's kind of cheating since Rudeboy was in that band too).

Sure there are some moments that feel lacking, but there is a really special feel to this album that I haven't gotten from any other album aside from Junkie XL's other early works. From the beginning hard hitting groove of "Underachievers" to the hidden track "Mulu", where the album says "oh, you thought I was done? Guess again!" and comes at you with more energetic beats, it never feels TOO dull. Even when it's at its lowest, it sounds GREAT; it really is an album that blends big beat, metal, rock, hip hop, and techno together perfectly.

It really is phenomenal how far Tom has come - scoring for blockbusters such as Mad Max Fury Road and Divergent - but there is still something so special about these first few albums. I don't know what it is - maybe it's nostalgia - but I absolutely love this album, and there's nothing that comes quite as close to it.

Highlights: "Billy Club", "Metrolike", "Saturday Teenage Kick", "Fight", "Melange", "Mulu"

I remember when I discovered this CD. It was one random day at tower records I saw it was available for listening. I gave it a whirl and listened to bits of the CD. Something got me, and I bought it. I don't think I ever expected this CD to become one of my favorites. The CD is banging all the way through from start to end with a perfect fusion of electronic, rock, and hip-hop. This album essentially represents what Tom's originally intentions was for Junkie XL before becoming heavily influenced by trance/progressive house. Couple of my favorite tracks is underachiever and saturday teenage kick.

One of my favorite Electronic album, so much souvenirs with songs like "no remorse", "fight" or "war". Sound like synthtetic rock. Bigbeat flava, techno, rock and hip-hop inspiration.
Really nice production and sound design, junkie XL was really inspired.
I've listen to this album lot of times in my childhood and it have a special value for me.
Some of the songs in this album appears in video games like "need for speed".

I must say, this is one of the BEST releases ever!!! Trully amazing, from beginning to the end this album represents the peak of big beat music and it does it really damn good! Beats, bass, mastermind programming, use of live instruments, you name it, it's there and everything fits together perfectly. When i first heard this record I was taken on a trip I never wanted to return from again, and I've been a "Junkie" junky eversince, I became addicted to big beat music. Sure Prodigy, Crystal Method and the Chemicals are great too, but Tommy's stuff is the shit! And of course, Rude Boy on the mic... this guy is something man, really something, the tightest lyrics I've ever heard, really add up great to the beats. Keep up the good work guys, so I can get my daily fix of good vibes!

I just have to say... this is one of the best electronica albums I have. I got it used, so I didn't know what I was getting in for but I was pleasantly surprised. Rude Boy's rapping put me off at first, but I got used to it very quickly. The beats are amazing... the songs are catchy and the overall atmosphere of the disc is very comfortable to the first time listener. JXL is definately a master at what he does. If you can pick this album up, I highly recommend you invest your money. You won't be sorry if you're a fan of good progressive house. 9/10
