Yeah, that's the funky-funky shit
Aye, bust it, yo, yo

I'm not gonna lie, this album is a straight up banger! I really like this breakbeat sound, it sounds like something that would be in one of those Tony Hawk skateboarding games. It just has this nostalgic feel to it despite the fact I wasn't around at the time this was made. The hooks are catchy as hell, it's fun and an all-around great combination of electronic and rock music!

That pitchfork review is one of the worst things I've ever read.

Here's a picture of a crab raving. In 2018, this will spread to, not just other crabs, but 11-year old Fortnite players who will be annoying the living shit out of their parents for days.

By moving towards a more big beat sound and adding some elements of rock, The Prodigy have created their magnum opus! "The Fat Of The Land" is a fantastically produced, well sampled and all-around fun record that still stands tall as a classic in the late 90’s EDM movement!
