Product Description

This is an album of raw energy where the beats are the stars, and the voices just samples in Liam's sonic armoury. The guests whose vocals have undergone Howlett's subverted cut up techniques include Liam Gallagher, Juliette Lewis, Kool Keith, Princess Superstar, Ping Pong Bitches, Twista, Shahin Bada (better known as the spine tingling chanteuse from 'Smack My Bitch Up') and unknown lo-fi singer songwriter Paul Jackson from Dirt Candy.

3.0 out of 5 stars An aging, awkward comeback Feb. 25 2009
Format:Audio CD
When 1997 hit, it was led by The Prodigy. Liam Howlett's genius blending of punk and electronic dance music was a surefire smash from the early 90s, right up to 97's FAT OF THE LAND. While it represented the finest pinnacle of The Prodigy's massive dancehall success, it also set the bar so high that no one, not even Howlett himself, could surpass it.

What followed was 5 years of dead silence, with Howlett refusing to release any new material for fear of it sounding too much like a rehash of previous efforts. After the shaky single release of 'Baby's Got A Temper,' Howlett scrapped all work done on the forthcoming new album, ALWAYS OUTNUMBERED, NEVER OUTGUNNED. The album finally dropped in 2004, but it was a definite switchup from the window-shattering sonic boom that was FAT OF THE LAND.

In fact, the only song on the album which truly pays homage to its predecessor is 'Spitfire,' the very first song. What follows afterward is a creative collection of tunes that never seem sure of their own footing. 'Girls' is a catchy enough number, but it best belongs in the back catalog of a lesser electronic band. 'Memphis Bells' is an annoyingly mundane offering that smacks of writer's block. 'Get Up, Got Off' and 'Hotride' attempt to bring Howlett's dark dance grooves to the forefront, but both fall short of what would be considered excellence from a man so uniquely talented. It's unfortunately very true: AO,NO is an album that waited far too long to hit turntables, and it shows. Howlett is quite clearly stuck between a rock and a hard place...unable to conjure up the delicious happy rave of EXPERIENCE, the viciously rebellious MUSIC FOR THE JILTED GENERATION, or the rich sonic tapestries of FAT OF THE LAND.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good...But not Great. Aug. 30 2004
Format:Audio CD
Having just puchased " Always Outnumbered..." , I think that some of the fans (especially the newer ones) may be dissapointed with this album. That's not to say the album is'nt good. It just does'nt quite live up to past albums. The album starts of with a bang with the very hard (and very loud) "Spitfire" , a great track, with a fierce beat. (This song would work great live). It then switches to an old- school style, with "Girls", which I think will be the first single. This is also a great, fun song, and is easily the best song on the album. Picture an old break dancing song from the early eighties and you will know what I mean. (However, if you were born after the year 1983, or so, you might not get it).
As good as those songs are, though, they are not nearly as good as the songs from past albums( Firestarter, Poison, Voodoo People, etc). And while Liam Howlett has many ideas on this album, they often end up sounding like only ideas, not fully fleshed out songs. Like the song "The way it is", which samples Michael Jacksons "Thriller". Sounds cool. But after listening to this song, all I kept thinking about was the original "Thriller ", and how it sounded.
What hurts this album the most , though, is the absence of Keith and Maxim. While most of the guest vocals are decent enough, (like Twista, Kool Kieth, and surprisingly Juliette Lewis) Kieth and Maxim could have done just as good a job, themselves.
"Always Outnumbered, Never Outguned" is still a very good album despite it's flaws, and is more exciting than most of the music out there. I would suggest, however, listening to this album at a local music store before you purchase it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Prodigy is going ELECTRONIC Sept. 15 2004
Format:Audio CD
This album is more Electronic and less Alternative. As a hardcore Prodigy fan for more than 7 years, I didnt get what i expected from the new cd. I wanted some agressive and powerful lyrics and music that give you addrenaline and make you go crazy. This album is still good because i like electronic music. That is the reason why i rated it 5 stars, because for its kind of music, it really rocks. If you like The Chemical Brothers, Future Sounds Of London, Air, Massive Attack, and etc, you will defenetly like this album. Further more, this album has mostly female vocals, and a little oldschool hiphop; but not Keiths and Maxims aggressive vocals. Its kind of based with old 80's beats mixed with the new latest sounds. Its a very cool album for Cars. Hotride is a really nice track. Again I expected more. If you guys expected an album like The Fat Of The Land, you will be dissapointed just like me.
