Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - 4/20/95, p.80
3.5 Stars - Very Good - "...A soundtrack for those British rave hordes who dodge Tory truncheons, MUSIC FOR THE JILTED GENERATION thrills initiates with a political buzz Americans might miss. But the Prodigy's hard-core techno generates universal dance fever....Truly trippy..."
Spin - 9/99, p.150
Ranked #60 in Spin Magazine's "90 Greatest Albums of the '90s."
Alternative Press - 4/95, p.84
"...JILTED GENERATION throws much darker shapes than its predecessor. Moreover, it slams harder and rawer and covers more ground--21st century hip hop, Latin funk, horror trance, Vapourspace-like ambient--in addition to their usual crowd-pleasing, hi-NRG tekno. Thumbs up for the use of guitar and flute, too..."
Option - 7-8/95, pp.129-131
"...the Prodigy jolts an industrial sensibility with techno drive and then rides the seemingly endless grooves until we're numb...for intensely pumping dance music, this album has more life than most..."
Q (Magazine) - p.117
4 stars out of 5 -- "Inspired by Rage Against The Machine, Dr. Dre and European techno, Howlett set out to make everything as hard and heavy as possible....Even now, the whole album sounds amazing: lean, hard and vicious."
Mojo (Publisher) - p.56
Ranked #83 in Mojo's "100 Modern Classics" -- "One-man Bomb Squad Liam Howlett was a breakbeat maker without peer."
NME (Magazine) - 12/24/94, p.22
Ranked #9 in NME's list of the 'Top 50 Albums Of 1994.'
Record Collector (magazine) - p.83
5 stars out of 5 -- "Under the booming breakbeats, thrash guitars and inflammatory soundbites Howlett's,supernova's upernova talent was on overdrive..."

Product Description:

The Prodigy: Liam Howlett, Maxim Reality, Leeroy Thornhill, Keith Flint.
Additional personnel: Lance Riddler (guitar); Phil Bent (flute).
The band who stand to give the much maligned English county of Essex a 'good' reputation, Prodigy succeed where Ian Dury and Brian Poole And The Tremeloes failed, i.e., achieving worldwide acceptance and success. Their aggressive, original and extraordinarily exciting style of dance music has created a thousand imitators. Although this record has since been overshadowed by the international success of The Fat Of The Land, it is still a vital record for students of 90s techno/dance. Prodigy lead their pack by a mile.
