    It took me time to love this one. It was so British, with the UK hardcore sound (Altern 8), to us in France, it felt a bit too much a joke, with accelerated samples and big cries. I bought it because of the "Android" track on a compilation, a track that was much more techno, closer to Moby than to breakbeat. So I was a bit dissapointed. It was so different and pointing into a very different musical direction. Well some time you are not ready to acknowledge the future when it first arrives! No I wouldn't sell my copy for a crown!!

      Today is 30th anniversary of this legendary album. Happy 30th anniversary, Experience! It is still one of the best EDM album of 1992.

          Properly good record - feral, punk crisp sounding. Guaranteed to make your gnashers form a gurny grin before you throw your arms around in all manner of contorted exhuberance - until you rupture something, and concede you’re no longer 15

          Weather Experience is great. Being serious for a moment Experience does retain an anarchic rebellious zeal. I was playing it the other day mixing it out of Jerusalem - wow, gestalt!

          I know they have described themselves as ‘electronic punk’ but they really were!

            I bought this album on Vinyl & CD after seeing them perform The Prodigy Experience in Liverpool November 1992 my first Gig/Rave I was 16 then now I'm 43 and i have played it very loud on my 1210 MK2 today. Unbelievable tunes start to finish thanks guys

              Does the original vinyl release come with an embossed cover as well as a non embossed cover?I have a copy and the barcode and etchings match an original issue but the cover isn't embossed.

                Despite being mocked by the music snobs for being such a fun album and not taking itself seriously, this is one of the massive land mark albums of 90s UK dance music, bringing breakbeat and hardcore to the mainstream more than any other group apart from maybe Altern 8 and Ragga Twins. It still sounds good over 25 years later.

                  I agree that 'Experience' and its expanded version is the best of breakbeat/hardcore can offer of its time.
                  Yeah i forgot Metalheads (Rob/Goldie)/ Rufige Kru. and of course the Tom & Jerry project of Marc & Dego. Did you mean Mark Ryder? Yeah that guy was pretty involved with alot of projects for the rave scene :)

                    Really was leagues above 99% of the "hardcore" out at the time, the energy that Liam was able to inject into his productions was pretty incredible.
                    Early Prodigy like Pendulum was embraced by the "underground" for their songmanship, sound quality and progressive take on their respected scenes but the "serious heads" very quickly distanced themselves from them claiming they hijacked their precious scenes and took it to the masses and Prodigy music overnight magically turned into pop, jealousy is a curse.
                    Problem was that 92 was moving so fast and to make an album of 12 tracks took a lot of time and 6 month old tracks were nearly out of date.
                    By the time this was finally released Liam was well past this sound both creatively & in regards to production quality.

                      For me its all about - Hyperspeed (G-Force) awesome tune, sampling a tune of one of the hip hop electro series albums from the 80's.
