Fat is an album of jock jams in JNCOs. Breathe rides a synth line like a surf guitar, with Maxim squealing and groaning lyrics like psychosomatic, addict, insane, over a beat that swings like a Red Hot Chili Pepper’s tube sock. Climbatize has the nerve to further inflate the Who’s Won’t Get Fooled Again adding a thrilling Incredible Bongo Band beat and cinematic atmospherics sourced from Egyptian Empire’s breakbeat classic The Horn Track. It’s like I’m in the biology club and they’re in the football team, you know? With The Fat Of the Land, they packed the stadiums.
Firestarter" and all of its rewrites capture the fire of the Prodigy at their peak, and the remaining songs have imagination that give the album weight. The Fat of the Land doesn't have quite enough depth or variety to qualify as a flat-out masterpiece, but what it does have to offer is damn good.
Fat Of The Land propelled the band into the mainstream and made household names of abrasive frontman Keith Flint and, of course, Liam Howlett. The record also broke the band to the US market. Perhaps the record’s greatest strength is its diversity: the slick, futuristic hip-hop of Diesel Power sits side-by-side with the paranoid, punk menace of Breathe, while the narcotically driven explosive rollercoaster that is Smack My Bitch Up offends, provokes and stimulates in equal measure. Keith Flint The de-facto ‘frontman’ of The Prodigy, Flint was the group’s public face and adopted a provocative, cartoon punk-like image to promote the album, and gurned his way through several iconic videos. Maxim Reality The group’s regular MC adopted dual vocal duties with Flint, taking the lead on Mindfields and the chart-topping chorus of Breathe.
Produced & mixed at Earthbound. Vocals on 1, 2, 7 and 8 recorded at Strongroom.
