The Prodigy – Invaders Must Die

March 3, 2009

theprodigyThe fourth album from UK based techno band the Prodigy (Liam Howlett, Keith Flint and Maxim Reality), Invaders Must Die is a most curious record: The band has made no great attempt to update their sound, made no lame attempt to make it “relevant” to 2009. So why does Invaders Must Die, which sometimes sounds like it’s caught in a time warp, rock so hard? Maybe it’s something as simple as that after nearly twenty years, the Prodigy know how to make a dance record, but from from first note to last, Invaders Must Die kicks absolute booty, frequently in a most spectacular way. Call it purity of vision or call it what you will, but whatever the reason, I was bowled over by how much I enjoyed this album. Standout cuts: “Invaders Must Die,” “Omen,” “Take Me To The Hospital” and “Warrior’s Dance.”
