I scored a copy of the new Prodigy album the other day, and it ROCKS!!!! I must say that, despite my die-hard love for The Prodigy, I was a little worried that they had already reached their apex. Nothing could have been further from the truth. “Invaders Must Die” continues to really push the limits of Liam Howlett’s ingenuity, and draw from a diverse musical background of both electronic and acoustic musical genres (hell, Dave Grohl even plays drums on one track). The Prodigy managed to stay true to their old school electronica roots, and signature sound, while moving further into the rock-electronica fusion genre that they did so much to create. It is worth mentioning as well that the two remixes on the “Omen” single release are FIRE as well. Though that is to be expected from Noisia and Chase and Status. The album is scheduled for release in the States on March 3rd, GO BUY IT!!!!!

1) They aren’t that cheap (considering). With a base price ranging from $11,990 to $16,990 depending on the model, this car’s demographic is not exactly going to overlap with that of real “environmentalists”. It’s more of a second car for someone that is to “Smart” to buy gas every four seconds. Which brings me to my next point.
2) According to the “About Us” portion of the companies website, the Smart car “has become the ‘it’ car in many countries throughout the world.” Can we say “status symbol”? I guess I’d rather have the stay-at-home moms driving those things to Whole Foods than a Suburban. This way when they crash trying to talk on the phone, paint their nails, fuck with the iPod, and look in the mirror while driving, they’ll only rid the world of themselves.
3) It’s German
