The reason this album was included in 1001 albums you must hear before you die, must be to sense how things were back at the time: 80% was about presentation, 20% about the music. Tailor made for readers of lads mags like "Loaded".

Just picked this up very cheap at a local record fair.

Its near mint condition, it looks like it's essentially never been played.

I'm hesitant to play it, tempted to hold onto it and not play it but where's the fun in that?

Is this listing the first pressing of the album? I can't find any listings that definitively say so, and there seem to be a lot of promo albums and test pressings all released during 1997 so that makes it slightly confusing.

Missing the a/b side of the 1997 UK pressing of this if anyone has a copy of only this for sale?

you don't have the right to say that you are an EDM Junkie if you don't have a HARD copy of this album. Simple as that.

How can one tell the difference between this original 1997 press and the 2012 repress (http://www.discogs.com/Prodigy-The-Fat-Of-The-Land/release/5194618)? According to the Discogs pages, these 2 presses have identical barcodes and matrix runouts??? Anyone know how to distinguish between the two pressings?

It's strange to think that this album is nearly 20 years old - It sounds just as fresh today as it did back in 1997!

Why nobody mentioned the similarities between The Prodigy's Smack My Bitch Up and Junkie XL's Dealing With The Rooster? I read everywhere that Junkie XL copied Smack My Bitch Up but Dealing With The Rooster was first released in March 1997, 3 months before Smack My Bitch Up was first released!

What can you say about this album that has not been said already, but there I go. This album was and remains today of the best albums in the history of electronic music, the prodigy in 1997 revolutionized the music market with this album and conquered the hearts of many people around the globe. When you get the recognition breakbeat world, always in the underground, with this album surfaced the world with anger and aggression. This powerful blend of Breakbeats, punk attitude, deep bass, synthesizers acids etc ... was explosive. Many look forward to more, a second part of the fat of the land would be great. I think a level of this album is not never hear anymore. 10. Juandibreakbeat. CANALYOUTUBE JUANDIBREAKBEAT
