Expanded has caused some discussions among Prodigy fans lately, no
surprise, as it is the first official 'new' release by the band for
a whole while. There is not that much to get excited about though,
all tracks on the double album have previously been released.

1 will contain the regular tracklist from 'The Prodigy Experience'
as released in 1992.
received some e-mails of opinions about this re-release. Many people
seem to be quite enraged about the fact that Prodigy seem to cover
the lack of new material with a re-release of old stuff. And although
I think its in a way pretty sad, too, you gotta remember that this
sort of stuff is mostly just down to the record company and not the
some fan opinions about Experoience Expanded that I have received
All I can say is that if taht really is the tracklist for the CD
2 - Prodigy are ripping off fans! man, that's just weak. add some
pathetic b-sides for the second CD. that ain't raw or real. that's
too commercial - I could expect Backstreet Boys doing that but the
Prodigy... they are in serious trouble. are they having lack of ideas
for Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned? let's hope not.
many live tracks are there that the fans love but that Liam refuses
to release because of concerns regarding quality. Personally I think
its got more to do with the record company than him. If you look at
the track listing for the second CD, it's all tracks that they have
a right to release anyway. I personally would've also preferred maybe
some of the more jilted era live tracks ("rock and roll",
the live version of "their law","we do what the fuck
what we want","acid break" etc.) Obviously not live,
since Liam himself said he despises live albums. And I think the fact
that these tracks have very little to do with what the prodigy are
about these days proves that the release wasnt prompted by Liam himself.
maybe someone could find out what he has to say. I mean ever since
the prodigy made it big the press has been out to get them, how can
, we the fans turn on them as well? Anyway even if it is some money
making scheme who are we to judge, like they say "we do what
the fuck we want"
It should not be forgotten that for someone who does not have a
copy of the first album or any of the older singles it is a real bargain.
Instead of buying the album and the whole lot of singles you just
buy one double pack. In my opinion the single version of your love
is quite superior to the version on the album release and other remixes
are great as well...
On the other hand it is of course quite sad that no real rare tracks
are put on the cd- for example what evil lurks .
think that the prodigy re-releasing there first cd is just leading
up to a better 'Always out numbered, never out gunned' I think that
liam felt bad for not at least putting something out he just decided
to do that. Also this could be another excuse so he could work on
the new cd even more and make it much better. I'm also hoping that
liam will be release cds like this for each of the cds (espeacially
jilted generation) because it might include the orginal full lenght
cut of The Heat (The engery). well in brief everyone should buy this
and keeping looking forward to big prodigy news in the near future.
think that the CD is going to be released to get the "acid house"
stone rollin' again.Liam said once in an interview that it would be
if the ol' Dance scene would come back to life.So?who knows?
Maybe they just having a try to start everything all over again?Let's
there i just seen this in your site i thought the hole thing bout
this prodigy release was OLDER TRACKS FROM WHEN THE BAND STARTED NO
CHANCE NOT BEING BIGHEAD OR NOTHING IVE HAD THESE TRACKS A COUPLE
OF YEARS AGO THANKS TO N*****R HEHEHEHE AND THEY ARE ALL GOOD THE
NEXT TIME LIAM WANTS TO BRING OUT A PRODIGY ALBUM SOME ONE TELL THAT
I WANT THE TRACKS FROM YEARS AGO LIKE THE SOUNDS OF THE PRODIGY UNAUTHORISED
THANKS IF THEY DONE THEM .
funny that nobody noticed, but this year is Prodigy's anniversary
(1991 - 2001; 10 years of Prodigy). Maybe Liam DID wanted to put up
all these (very) old stuff, after all. But, on the other hand, it's
strange that there's no "What evil lurks" on it, since it
was their first single (1991). Personally, I won't bother to go out
and buy it, because I've got all the tracks, except the Techno Underworld
remix of "Out of space", so buying two CD's just for that
would be a complete waste of money. I hope that this re-release wasn't
Liam saying: "Oh, sorry, nothing new for this year, but I'll
give you something to play with in meantime". I trust the man,
and I hope he won't fail to satisfy us with new material soon.
assuming this Experience Expanded is really their next and
assuming this will be in fact their first album including another
Fuck'em if they do that! That doesn't sound like The Prodigy. I bet
they'd lose a lot of fans (including myself) if they'd do something
cheesy as that...
be stupid if I wouldn't buy that album just for the new tracks,
I'm not sure what the fuss is about. So prodigy
releasing an old album, so what! For hardcore fans like
myself who have been with Liam since the biggining
then it seems a little pointless. We probably own all the
records and mixes which are not very difficult to get hold
of. I have orginal copies of every UK release including
the "What Evil Lurks EP"
for more recent fans who don't have some of
the older stuff then this is as good as way as any to get
hold of it without have to shell out money on the
Another thing to consider is the fact that this is an
American album. The decision has probably been taken
by the record label that owns the rights in America to
put out a compilation where the singles are not readily
available. Liam has probably had no say in it anyway!
Its very frustrating that we haven't seen anything from
the Prodigy stable for a while, but at the end of the day
it doesn't really matter that a complitation album is
being realeased, the more fans the better. It not worth
getting worked up about!
the hell is Liam up to? He always used to state that he would never
back and release old material!!! Even as exciting as it maybe to have
new album I know that Liam will loose a lot of his respect that he
throughout the years.
Re-release of 'Experience' what next? 'Music for the even more
"it is gonna be nothing. i don't believe in that shit.
prodigy isn't so comersialised."
"If they do that i am not a prodigy fan any more.
I'll fell like i'm betraid from the band.
We don't deserve that after all this years of waitning.
Please don't do that liam."
is just a little note to all the doubters out there.Has Liam sold
out & did he lie?I think not.Four years ago most of you people
shocked and disappointed when Liam revealed there would'nt be another
Prodigy album but here we are today eagerly awaiting AONO.So why should
Expanded be any different Liam is just being Liam,doing what the fuck
likes.He's known for constantly changing his mind.You people did'nt
him a sellout when he announced a fourth album even though he said
never do another Prodigy album most of you were probably very pleased
like myself.Expanded is also more aimed at the American marked so
be seen as an exception.You people should let his track record do
talking and lay off him because he'll deliver the goods and make shit
off all your comments and wo'nt you feel stupid then.Keep the faith
think this Prodigy : Experience Expanded thing is just a fake...or
kind of a money making shit ....I m a Prodigy fan since the beginning
and i cant imagine that they re-realize their first album ...i hope
'Brandon from Miami':
I first read about it in your web site I was both excited and
disappointed at the same time. The reason I was a bit disappointed
the experience album is so distant from what Liam is doing now, that
almost as if your listening to someone else. His infusion of rock
have propelled his tracks to a new dimension. The original experience
lacked singing vocals and really didn't have any rock elements. It
wasn't as good as The Fat Of The Land album was. Don't get me wrong
Experience was still great but for that time. Especially the out of
space-remix and Charly !! There's no doubt that I'm gonna run to the
get it, for starters I love Prodigy to the extreme. But, I would have
that Jilted Generation would have gotten the expanded treatment rather
Experience. That album wasn't as far in material and really buzzed
But I'll take what I can take... Anything that is Prodigy is great
Outgunned never outcoming ?
I also believe that Experience is being released just to put something
out, keeping the fans busy with some Prodigy remixes and perhaps a
collectible with the Expanded album, till the new album hits... But
show how long outnumbered really is from it's release. I can't help
wonder if Outgunned will be delayed till November of 2001 ??? I know
Liam is kinda a perfectionist and he won't put finality on the album
it's perfect, but you got to admit it's taken a long time...
Summary, I will surely be picking up the Expanded album to hold me
over till outgunned gets released, but I'm sure ready for something
"Liam" and the Prodigy."
think (better: I HOPE) prodigy will release two albums, a cover of
experience and their really fourth album always outnumbered never
i love prodigy and in the event of expanded cd as fourth album i hope
will not establish the end of prodigy"
We all know that Liam is a musical phenomenon.
That's a fact. Well if he just want;s to 'cover' the lack of new material,
it;s ok because that means he shows respect to the prodigy fans and
he doesn't want to keep them waiting.
Another option is that if somehow Liam's expresion in music guided
him in making something from the past to bring it here to our and
his present.Imagine if he went to the past and same time move on to
the future. OOOOOOR! it can be just some tracs from different places
- lives - or a cd-rom.
That's sound's cool too AND YOU KNOW WHAT? I PERSONALY DON'T GIVE
A FUCK NO MATTER HOW LONG THE NEW ALBUM WILL TAKE CAUSE THE DAY IT
WILL BE IN MY HANDS IT WILL SURE WORTH ALL OF OUR SUCRIFISES IN ORDER
TO KEPT US WAITING ''PRODIGY I LOVE YOU'' I UNDERSAND YOU. ''''IT'S
NATURAL TO TAKE SO LONG FOR NA ALBUM LIAM CAUSE YOU CREATE BEASTS''''''''
