The Day is Their En­emy, as are the pass­ing years for these rave old­sters

Australian T3 - - PLAY -

The Prodigy took elec­tronic dance mu­sic from the cul­tural fringe to rock-fes­ti­val head­line sta­tus. Their pu­n­ish­ing techno, at its best, was like bot­tled light­ning – coun­ter­cul­ture cool, the ag­gres­sion of hard rock and the danceability of, er, dance mu­sic. Granted, 20 years on from Jilted Gen­er­a­tion, they still sound pretty much the same, but even if their musical growth has flat­lined, some of the old en­ergy still peeps through at times. Rave on, grandads! $20 CD, $19 MP3, OUT NOW
