The Prodigy - Invaders Must Die

Invaders Must Die is the new album (and single) from The Prodigy. It is, in a sense (for me at least), a come back album after a fairly long period of silence and rumors of breakups and other nasty things. I recently heard this album (and I'm listening to it now), and I must say, what an album! It has all the ingredients of classic prodigy music. Much more so than the last two albums. It feels like they paid their mothers a visit and went rummaging around in whatever basements and attics there may be, digging out the instruments, synthesizers and samplers that started the whole thing so many years ago. It's like a mix between the experience and fat of the land. Old instruments, but with a new feeling. It is, quite simply, a masterpiece. Much better than their last album (Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned). Long time fans of The Prodigy will instantly feel at home in the songs. This album contains all the little quirks and twists and turns that the first two albums contained.

Upon hearing the album, I immediately went looking for concert tickets. It turns out that they played here in Belgium yesterday (fuck), and they'll be playing in Lisbon the day after I leave (double fuck). My best shot is now one of their fall gigs in Luxembourg or Holland.

If you haven't already, you need to out and get this album. It's a must have, almost regardless of who you are. It goes to 11...
