Mini Album Review Week - The Prodigy

The Prodigy are back on fine form with this album. They've mixed old style Prodigy with something new. Perhaps they are no longer putting themselves under the pressure of discovering something new on each album. Following the success of Fat of the Land the band had said they wouldn't release another album unless it was taking another step forward. The next album Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned was disappointing so it was good to hear them back to form.

The first two singles Omen and Invaders Must Die have a new sound to them while Take Me To The Hospital and Warriors Dance nod to the bands old rave days. It's a great mix, great to run to and quite a return to previous highs. There is even a Go Team! sounding end to the album with Stand Up. If you haven't got this album yet and enjoyed their previous work I definitely recommend getting it.
