There's no denying that Liam Howlett was among the prime rainmakers to wed the toolbox of techno with the savage aesthetics of punk. Others may have overshadowed his efforts at times (see Atari Teenage Riot), but Howlett has been the most consistently on target. Fat Of The Land is canon now, and the Dirtchamber Sessions established his primacy in the field of anarcho-punk mash-ups. This long- anticipated full-length, part agit-prop anthems, part apocalyptic garage, will see Prodigy's status cut in stone. Howlett enlists a gang of mad talent (Kool Keith to the Gallagher Brothers) to lay waste to our ears. If only half of punk or techno sounded this brilliantly aggressively anxious, I'd never have left the dance floor.
