EDITORS’ NOTES

A revolution within a revolution, Music for the Jilted Generation kicked rave culture's smiley face upside down. While the British government cracked down on the anarchic party scene, The Prodigy doubled down on the chaos, speeding up hardcore's pummeling breakbeats and pianos and adding heavy-metal guitars to acid squelch. The result was a record as invigorating as any in electronic music—a hyperspeed journey through movie samples, minor-key hooks, and the sound of breaking glass. Dancing among the ruins never felt so good.

Every other DJ I worked with when this album came out wanted to buy my rare copy (in the US) of the Dust Bros. remix of "Voodoo People". Well you can all get it now on this extended album. It still gets the dancers in the dirt. And for anyone just looking to collect singles, make an exception for this album. Every track is great individually, and they play as a collection.
