    girlindeath, concerning "annoying woman voice" - it seems you've heard The Prodigy the first time now and it seems you're trying to outline the vocals here. So sorry to say it is not what they try to deliver.

    Dude wasn't even born when Experience was released. The Day Is My Enemy blends both new and old and is a great effort imo.

    Соглашусь с предыдущими ораторами на тему сходства с Invaders Must Die. Но меня альбом порадовал наличием как минимум двух крутых треков на мой вкус - Wild Frontier и Destroy. У меня не было сверхожиданий от 6-го альбома группы, пережившей пик своего успеха почти 20 лет назад. И все равно эти два трека напомнили мне, насколько я их обожаю, и что с ними все равно никто не сравнится.

    The Day Is My Enemy, yes. Invaders Must Die - No thanks, not really.

    I'm pretty sure everyone who doesn't like "The Day Is My Enemy" didn't like "Invaders Must Die" either.
