Just got it today and ive just put it on listening through headphones. It is seriously brilliant. Total old school rave in places and the usual bowel crunching bass! Anyone else had a listen yet?

Impressive sounds and production but i find their music quite repetitive and i end up getting bored and switching em off very quickly.

It's good but not their best. It's all great live though! Saw them in December and they've still got the magic.

Ordered it through Play.com and had an email Saturday morning telling me it's on it's way.... but still waiting.

And yes, they do play their instruments live... though Liam Howlett will also have loads of pre-programmed samples in there as well.

I've only heard Omen and I'm not keen to be honest. Then again though, I only ever bought their first album when they really were old school! (well new school then but...). Everthing from then was just too punk for me.

Apparently, the new album was made using nothing else but Reason 4 (a couple hundred quids worth or so of "virtual studio" program for mac/PC for those wondering).

One good track - track 8, unfortunately this finishes at 2:14 and still in the intro stage.

ÿ

I hoped they would have developed from their last album 'Always Outnumbered Never Outgunned', this was a step in the right direction, but they seem to have gone 'back to the old skool', but you can't have proper old school unless it's from that era IMO.

ÿ

I find the lyrics in many of the songs in the album laughable (in a bad way), i think they were just trying to re-kindle their glory days with this, as long as the NEXT album is a BIG step forward fromÿAlways Outnumbered Never Outgunned, then I think that 'Invaders must Die', still has it's place in their discog, but definately not as a pivotal album.

ÿ

Over and out...ÿ

Like Stevee1966 I've got mine being delivered by Play, soon I hope. I've heard Omen @ Beatport and was seriously impressed. These guys are genuine dance legends and the early signs this album is a great return to their true roots, oldskool!!!!!!

However, I'm glad their production skills have improved, Experience sounds pretty weak now. As a live act, go and see them, they're value for money. Liam has started to use Ableton Live which is designed to run a vast number of loops, sequences and effects in realtime whilst keeping everything in perfect sync.

Easy fatboyslimfast! I'm not knocking the ideas in that album just the production used. It all sounds a bit too 'raw' for my ears. I like the silky smooth sound which is probably why grime's off the menu ; )

Not heard new album yet. But I think Music for the JIlted Generation was the best. It sounded different from the first one and I think people couldnt get their head round it. I reckon people were expecting another Experience esque type album. When you listen to it closely you realise it is a masterclass of music and production. Has to be one of the best albums made.

Perhaps they're making them to order to avoid sinking too much money into parts!

I have been listening to the album over the last few days. (Mine arrived from Play on time.)

I have been pleasantly surprised. Definitely more old skool which I think is rather good!!

OK. Just ordered it from Play. Also ordered the new CD from Lily Allen (It's Not Me, It's You). Seems their website has a problem....cos it's listed as £8.95 but I've only been charged £3.95!

Picked it up last week. A bit of a mish mash really. Definitely sounds like The Prodigy should, though it's a strange contrast of Experience and Always Outnumbered. I think it's down to the fact the group have reunited and are now reminiscing the good times they had in the nineties and early noughties. As someone mentioned some of the lyrics are distinctly laughable, it doesn't have the somewhat underground, seedy edge Fat of the Land had but it does continue with the manic, depthly tone of the last two albums.

The Prodigy these days are about making a hugely impressively produced album designed for high volume, with little thought, though huge excitement in mind - along the lines same lines as Pendulum.

New album is brilliant have been listening all week. However, for some reason it sounds better on my ipod o me than on my stereo system. Is my system no good for that kind of music? Cambridge Audio 840C + 840A V2 and Dali Ikon 6's.....What do you think????

They are ripping off their own old tunes but that sort of works, not a patch on "calling all freaks" by crystal method though, nearly got sacked using that as a ringtone and it going off during a meeting, listen to the first lyrics and you will know what i mean
