AllMusic

If Experience seemed like an excellent fluke, Music for the Jilted Generation is the album that announced the Prodigy were on the charts to stay.

Mojo

Proving they were here to stay, this second album combined dance firepower and metal grind, with the slowed-down, evil Poison and the PWEl-guesting Their Law far from the euphoria of Experience.

Music for the Jilted Generation is a wildly fun, energetic Breakbeat album from The Prodigy that was ahead of its time.

Delivering tons of rave fuelled bangers, this album never lets the viewer have a rest for the entire 78min runtime.

Some of the tracks do go on a bit too long, but the fast-paced energy, crisp production & creative sound design is more than enough to forgive the albums' overlong runtime.

This album shows us the potential of The Prodigy. It has the some punchiness and danceability of Fat of the Land, but what it lacks is the attention-grabbing quality of every track on that album. The biggest difference between the two is that this can serve as good background music, while FOTL is simply too exciting. That's not necessarily a bad thing and it isn't the case for every track on here. Specifically the song "Voodoo People". Absolute heat.

I think this album is very good, ... read more

It's just dance music: honestly it wasn't smth to absolutely hate on but it was smth to love every single second of. I thought some of the samples were pretty cool, other than that it was forgettable due to every song sounding effectively the same to me.
