The Prodigy - Definitely Back in 2009

The Prodigy is back with a couple of new releases for the fans out here. I didn't know what to expect after their former releases which were controversial to say the least, even among Prodigy-fans.

With these two, I would claim that they are making a run for the past, going back to the sounds that have consecrated them, crazy beats and a mish-mash of styles (drum and bass, punk, old school rave).Included are collaborations with Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters) and James Rushent (Does It Offend You Yeah, a British electronic rock band). I have enjoyed the "Warrior's Dance" (especially catch the live version on YouTube) while "Thunder" or "Take me to the hospital" resemble the 1992 classic "Out of Space". Overall, an interesting mix of riff-raffs, hectic beats and keyboard strokes in the purest and most classical Prodigy style. Yet another generation to be hit by it while we are battered by the memories of early 1990s crazy raves. calls it "perhaps the most honest and strongest album since ‘Fat of the Land’. It is without a doubt one of the best dance album in about 15 years and hopefully will bring life back into the rave scene".


1. Invaders Must Die
2. Omen
3. Thunder
4. Colours
5. Take Me To The Hospital
6. Warrior’s Dance
7. Run With The Wolves
8. Omen Reprise
9. World’s On Fire
10. Piranha
11. Stand Up

Lost Beats ads up four more tracks to the Prodigy's 2009 release and some more of the Prodigy's sound. I found 2 and 4 to be quite good.
