EDITORS’ NOTES

A revolution within a revolution, Music for the Jilted Generation kicked rave culture's smiley face upside down. While the British government cracked down on the anarchic party scene, The Prodigy doubled down on the chaos, speeding up hardcore's pummeling breakbeats and pianos and adding heavy-metal guitars to acid squelch. The result was a record as invigorating as any in electronic music—a hyperspeed journey through movie samples, minor-key hooks, and the sound of breaking glass. Dancing among the ruins never felt so good.

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

So glad

I'm so happy that this album is finally on ITUNES. when I was stationed in Naples in the mid 90's, this is the album we listened to when driving. It was our angry music...

20 years old, still relevent, still excellent

Looking backwards, I can see why so many Drum and Bass artists remix old Prodigy tracks. It must be their homage to a band that shaped both their sound as well as breakbeat and many others. I can remember when I bought this album for "Poison", but ended up using almost every track on it when DJing. All of them got people moving. It's still great.
