The Prodigy - Invaders Must Die
Electronics, Techno I remember back in 1997 when "Firestarter", "Breathe" and "Smack My Bitch Up" started to run in the media. Even though I was mostly into skatecore at that point, it was something very attractive with the electronic sounds of Prodigy. To this day I think 'The Fat of the Land' is still one of the best albums ever released and I still listen to it every now and then. There's pretty much no album out there that sounds even remotely the same, it's unique.

With the disappointment with 'Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned' in 2004, I didn't have much hope at all for 'Invaders Must Die', but holy crap, was I wrong. 'Invaders Must Die' is like going back to 'The Fat of the Land', but the albums don't sound alike in any way. You can still hear it is The Prodigy a long way with the British dance touch, but it doesn't sound like the earlier releases at all and once again I think they have made something that feels very unique.

"Omen", "Thunder", "Colours" and "Take Me To The Hospital" are just amazing tracks and I can keep listening to them over and over again. The beats are awesome and the melodies are clever and perhaps have a bit more electro pop feeling to it, rather than the more dark sounds from songs like "Breathe".

If you enjoyed 'The Fat of the Land', do check out 'Invaders Must Die', I think you will be surprised. Don't count out The Prodigy just yet.
