After a seven-year break between studio albums, 2004's ALWAYS OUTNUMERED, NEVER OUTGUNNED returned the Prodigy to the ranks of the movers and shakers in mainstream electronica. From the record's lead-off track, "Spitfire," it is clear that group mastermind Liam Howlett (now essentially a one-man band) hasn't lost his touch--thunderous beats abet aggressive guitar, keyboards, and samples, while snaking melodies rise and fall, and actress Juliette Lewis screams a repeating vocal tag. This level of intensity rarely slackens over the course of the record.

In addition to its superior, high-end production, fist-pumping choruses, and insidiously propulsive rhythms (the undulating bass groove of "Hot Ride"--its refrain filched from Jimmy Webb's "Up, Up and Away"--is one of the highlights), ALWAYS OUTNUMBERED is graced by distinguished guests. Twista (reputedly one of the fastest rappers on earth) spits rhymes throughout "Get Up Get Off" at a mind-boggling pace. Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher takes a turn on the mic on "Shoot Down," and Kool Keith turns up on the aggro-electro-funk of "Wake Up Call." But it is Howlett's knob-twiddling that commands most of the attention here, sustaining the Prodigy's long-held claim to making some of the most meticulously constructed, brain-rattling club music around.

You're thinking of Jilted Generation

Prodigy's worst album. I do love the prodigy, but this album just isn't up to their usual quality. That's not to say it's bad, it's just not as good as the other ones.

When I saw them live they played songs from every album, but none from this.

At least their last album made up for it though!

Good deal.

Hell yeah, a return to form!

Been around the £3 mark for a while - loads of places over-ordered on this album, and have tons of them sitting around.

The singles were good, but it's far from a great album.

Worth it for first three tracks alone - spitfire, girls and memphis bells. Agreed it's not their best album, but it's still pretty good.
