Astonishingly, a quarter of a century has now passed since The Prodigy released The Fat of the Land, the inspired rock-rave fusion opus that helped rocket the Essex combo towards superstardom and converted a whole generation of spotty indie kids to the joys of rambunctious rave music. It’s certainly worthy of this limited-edition anniversary pressing, which comes on eye-catching silver-coloured vinyl. Of course, we all know the smash hits – the bustling, acid-flecked roll of ‘Smack My Bitch Up’, ultra-heavy ‘Firestarter’ and funky, low-slung ‘Breathe’ – but the set’s lesser-celebrated moments, such as hip-hop jam ‘Diesel Power’, Meat Beat Manifesto-esque ‘Serial Thrilla’ and punky ‘Fuel My Fire’ have aged equally as well.
