I actually much prefer Music for the Jilted Generation. That album blew my mind when I first heard it. Fat of the Land ended up somewhat disappointing afterwards, though I like some of the tracks.
Yeah, the whole thing with them in the 90s was weird. They were pretty much touted as the next big thing before they had really done anything at all mainstream. And when you looked at it, they really weren't doing anything remarkable in that genre - there were plenty of contemporary bands doing the same kind of thing, but The Prodigy got singled out for some reason.
I just didn't keep up with them afterwards.
