Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned
Artist: The Prodigy
Title: Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned
Genre: Electronic Punk
Label: XL Recordings
The long awaited 4th album from The Prodigy has finally been unleashed. Seven years on since they took over the world with The Fat of the Land, band leader Liam Howlett returns with another corker, but this time minus the vocal talents of Keith Flint and Maxim. They’ve been replaced by a host of guest vocalists, including Kool Keith, Ping Pong Bitches, Princess Superstar, Twista, Liam Gallagher and Hollywood actress Juliette Lewis, who shouts her way through “Spitfire” and “Hotride.”
They may have left it a few years too late, but this album contains some surprisingly awesome electroclash mixing metal guitars with electro samples that take you through a wild journey over the course of the 12 tracks. There's even a reworking of the Shocking Blue classic “Love Buzz,” renamed “Phoenix” on the album. Overall, this will no doubt please those hardcore Prodigy fans who've been waiting far too long for their next fix of phat synths from the masters of reinvention.
