I think it's just quite far away from what I like listening to. Get your fight on sounds pretty good - bit shouty, but that has become their thing.
What always amazes me is you can hear a small section of a track and be almost certain it's Prodigy. The moment the drums kick in there's something there that is present in all his tracks since Jilted, at least.

Hmmm. He still knows how to put a decent hook together, but it's a load of noisy nonsense beyond that.
Has any of the new album charted? Do the youngsters like it??

Yeah, nothing exciting here - shouts,fat breakbeats, distorted riffs and vocals. I have listened each song and tomorrow they will be forgotten, whereas their first 3 albums are timeless and will be listened for many more years, that's what Prodigy became nowadays but respect to Howlett who made Prodigy's sound so easily recognisable everywhere by everyone.
(even if it sounds like it was made in Ableton Live ;) )
