    RIP Prodigy. Liam got bitten by EDM. Sounds like Skrillex of Prodigy genre. Liam playing same old shit fat synths, boring predictable rhythms, even more boring vocal samples. Such a shame.

    This is The Prodigy's LOUDEST and STRONGEST moment to date. Yes, was more aggressive than The Fat of The Land. If you can't handle that, you don't deserve to be part of this movement. SO IF YOU'D BE SO KIND, MAKE LIKE LEEROY THORNHILL AND LEAVE!

    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.

    Darkestf, you listen to Elton John. I don't think you belong here.
