iTunes Editors' Notes

Though casual American listeners might be tempted to dismiss The Prodigy as rabblerousing one-hit wonders, those willing to explore beyond the boundaries of their infectious, agro-techno hit “Firestarter” will be pleasantly surprised by the riches that await them. “Firestarter’s” iconic video featuring Prodigy frontman Keith Flint shaking his raved-up Johnny Rotten coiffure in an appropriately post-apocalyptic sewerscape made Flint the group’s most recognizable member, but it's the behind the scenes technical savvy of producer and DJ Liam Howlett that's responsible for Fat of The Land’s bracing sonic backdrops. Howlett had staked out a signature sound for the Prodigy on their previous two albums, but the textured, acid derived sounds of Experience and Music For the Jilted Generation failed to have much of an impact outside of the somewhat insular English rave scene. Fat of The Land arrived as a conscious gesture at crossover success. Kool Keith, fresh from the artistic triumph of Octagynecolegyst draws in the hip-hop heads on “Diesel Power”, while the arena sized hook and the spacious, Trent Reznor derived soundscapes of “Smack My Bitch Up” and “Fuel My Fire” deliver definite mosh-pit appeal.

Customer Reviews


The fact that Liam Howlett reckons this album should be ranked alongside What's the Story, Nevermind and Never Mind The B******s shows how good he thinks this album is. Personally, i wouldnt be one to ignore that view. This album is insane!! It showcases Liam's amazing talents and shows the evil side of Keith and Maxim. The pinnacle of the Prodigy's powers, if you dont have this album, buy it, if you do then put it on repeat for the next year!! Any album that sells 5 million copies on one song alone should be ranked as one of the all-time greats


listening to this after having had "prodigy experience" and "music for the jilted generation", I was quite suprised. There are much more real instruments and vocals on this album, and it is fantastic. Narayan and Mindfields are so underated, they are definitley the best tracks.

Genre: Electronic

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

The Prodigy navigated the high wire, balancing artistic merit and mainstream visibility with more flair than any electronica act of the 1990s. Ably defeating the image-unconscious attitude of most electronic artists in favor of a focus on nominal frontman Keith Flint, the group crossed over to the mainstream of pop music with an incendiary live experience that approximated the original atmosphere of the British rave scene even while leaning uncomfortably close to arena rock showmanship and punk theatrics....
