Tune of the month

Personally I liked the fact they became a band, Altern8 did the same. Both guys did their own thing first then formed the band, many still like their music even though they did the gimmicky mask thing. Many I know and a lot of old skool bods online have said how The Prodigy get respect because they are the only true band still flying the flag for dance music/electronica even if they have made cross over music. I think their still credible even though they went commercial, but what impresses me they never made shit tunes. Some like to water down their music in case they fear it wont get in the top 40. The Prodigy never did the pop sound they have always been about energy and in your face sounds and always controversial (Smack My Bitch Up being one and Baby's Got A Temper with the rohibnol line and milking of cows in their video) so yeah they didnt stay underground but then again if they did would they still be the stand out band they are now? also if you was given the chance to keep your fierce, bad arse sound and go mainstream you would take it surely? I like how they are given freedom to do what they please. The record company do what they have to do and leave them to it, jobs a goodun.

Its all down to preference and opinion at the end of the day but I still do chuckle at those who hate on them just because they decided to not give up and be forever fawned upon in 15 years to come with people saying "who remembers the prodigy" like most of us do now that most who made the rave sound now have normal jobs and a family. The Prodigy decided they want to carry on, cant blame em.

I don't see a problem with their new stuff I like it all. The band would obviously never stay rave because that sound isnt being made much now, they have gone with the times and evolved. I like Experience, Jilted and Fat Of The Land. I also love their other albums as they still have that energy they always had, might not be to everyones taste but I'm quite across the board with what I like so that rocky breakbeat/big beat sound is what I also like. I was lucky to get tickets for their latest tour in December and know that I'll thoroughly enjoy it.

I do smile at those who seem stuck in a timewarp that anything after 1992 is considered shit lol :D many artists out there have changed track in their time. Tastes change, times change you either evolve with it or be forever left behind clinging onto the past. I love my old skool, why else would I be here posting on an old skool forum? but I also like some newer music. I cant wait for their new album and to see them at 02 Brixton.
