Prodigious effort which has a few wrinkles with age Fat of the Land was the third album by The Prodigy. Released in 1997 this was probably their biggest commercial album breaking America and the rest of the world and confirming them to be more than a rave DJ, and MC and a couple of ropey dancers...

ProAggression-fuelled dance/rock hybrid brilliance

Cons'Serial Thrilla' and 'Fuel my fire'

After the magnificence of 'Music for the Jilted generation', The Prodigy reached a crossroads. Liam Howlett had created two genre-defining and timeless albums, packed with ingenuity and phat beats, but what next? Howlett decided to experiment with turning up the aggression, and taking the guitar...

“Filth Infatuated”

published 30/01/2002

ProNew, exciting, rash, uplifting

ConsA few weak tracks towards the end of the album

Let me take you back if I could, fellow Ciaoers, to a golden age that has long passed… At this point, depending on your age and your location, you'll probably all be imagining different scenarios. Perhaps you're thinking of you're long gone upbringing in a thriving Yorkshire town, where you had...

“Fat land”

published 22/09/2000

ProGreat tracks

ConsNot as good as last album

This is the third album by the mighty Prodigy. This album is just as ground breaking as their last. The band reached new levels of controversy with the Firestarter video branded 'too scary' for daytime tv and Smack My Bitch Up causing controversy with both the lyrics and the video. The album...

“Its pretty good”

published 13/08/2001

ProIts typical prodigy

ConsA bit too rocky in some places

Released in July 1997, I have to say this is a very good album. Three years on from the populist techno of Music For The Jilted Generation, they are back with another winner. More rock and hip-hop influenced than its predecessors, Fat of the Land sets the pulse racing, fusing big beats with a...

“Butter Merely Makes Us Fat”

published 28/11/2001

ProFat with hard-hitting tracks

ConsFuel My Fire

Back in my university days, I existed almost exclusively on a musical diet of acid house and rock, but like proteins and carbohydrates should be, the two food groups were kept pretty much separate. Then acid died a death and it was not until The Prodigy released “Breathe” with its...

published 23/05/2001

ProNice variation in it all

Cons... well, can be highly prices nowadays...

I do not know whether you have written an opinion on a dance CD before, but it is hard to describe all the songs separately because of the fact that it is all electronic sounds! Anyway, this is The Prodigy’s second to latest offering, released in 1997 with ‘Music for the Voodoo...

I really like the Prodigy and was looking forward to this album when it came out... what could follow the quality sounds of Firestarter and Breathe? Sadly I was disappointed. This album does contain those two tunes, along with the over-hyped Smack My Bitch Up and a great bit of rapping from Keith...

“Psycho Somatic Addict Insane”

published 17/12/2000

ProA real classic! wild wicked manic

Consa few weak links

I was first introduced to The Prodigy and 'fat of the Land' after buying my sister the album in Bulgaria for £4. I had always thought that the music was loud and... well, terrible. I was soon became a Prodigy fanatic after heaing the album through. the album consists of 10 manic tracks, including...

Prodigy I remember seeing Prodigy several years ago at the Glastonbury festival they were wonderful I was in work early yesterday morning and had this C D with me so I played it to liven me up before the children arrived. The fat of the land was produced in 1997 . The record starts with the track...

ConsNot for the easily offended

This is the albums that had it’s release date famously pushed back due to the main creator of the band, Liam Howlett preferring to play tomb raider rather than finishing the album by its deadline. Even with the distraction of Lara Croft this album it is still a brilliant album to listen to...

This is a fairly old album now, but it still retains the quality it had when i first played it, probably about 3 or 4 years ago. it begins with Smack my 8|t(h up, which actually garnered some controverasy when released, hard to belive now if you listen to other songs being sold. It is a...

This was an album that in many ways no-one really knew what to do with when it came out. Everyone seemed to have their favourites songs but all were of such different styles. I mean it wasn't the sort of album you could sit and chill to and it wasn't really a dance album so.... what was it? In my...

“Merely Waxing Fat”

published 13/11/2000

Pro'Narayan' and perhaps also 'Firestarter'

ConsGenerally unimpressive, unimaginative and dull.

With the forthcoming release of Prodigy's fourth album, it might be worthwhile to cast our minds back to their most successful album to date: The 1997 best-seller "The Fat Of The Land." The success of this CD lies with the two singles which preceded its release - "Firestarter" and "Breathe." Both...
