Album Review

Covering the band's most successful stretch during the early to mid-'90s, this Playlist compilation takes listeners on a tour through the discography of groove metal stalwarts Prong. Starting with their 1990 major-label debut, Cleansing, and going on through 1996's Rude Awakening, which found the group disbanding shortly after its release, the collection tracks Prong in their prime as they rode the wave of success from their single "Snap Your Fingers, Snap Your Neck." Longtime fans will want to check out the B-sides "Dying Breed" and "Inheritance," which were released on the Live at CBGB and Whose Fist Is It maxi-singles, respectively.
