Invaders Must Die

Invaders Must Die finds the Prodigy line-up of Liam Howlett, Keith Flint, and Maxim Reality back together on record for the first time since 2002’s ill-fated, subsequently disowned “Baby’s Got A Temper”. This doesn’t mark a return to the bad old days of punk-rave cabaret, though. No, in fact, Invaders Must Die finds The Prodigy delving even further back into their history, an attempt to recapture the heady rave vibes, one-finger keyboard riffs, and concussive breakbeats of 1992’s Experience and its epochal follow-up, 1994’s Music For A Jilted Generation.

True, sometimes it feels a little too transparent in its eagerness to recapture past glories: “Thunder”, with its loping reggae vocal, is undeniably Howlett on form, but it apes the formula of 1992’s “Out Of Space” a little too closely for comfort.

Still, the likes of “Omen” and “Take Me To The Hospital” are agreeably back-to-basics cuts that merge nagging melodies and fairground waltzer queasiness with a weighty production job that renders them muscular enough to compete on a level playing field with Justice, Pendulum, et al. “Run With The Wolves” is the one track that harks strongly back to Fat Of The Land, a gnarled, rocky number with Dave Grohl on live drums that finds Keith Flint claiming to be “hung like a hound”.

The closing “Stand Up” is a late surprise, meanwhile, a euphoric set-closer with hints of Screamadelica-era Primal Scream. --Louis Pattison
