Pandora is a very cool and interesting music service. You enter names of artists you like and Pandora creates an instant online radio station with music that you’re supposed to enjoy. It does that by learning the “DNA” of tracks, which you say you “like” or “dislike”. Pandora was created by the Music Genome Project.
“Their Law” by The Prodigy went down to number 2 in the UK after one week as the top selling album, but that was expected as number 1 this week is Robbie Williams’ new album. The fact that Prodigy is still number 2 means that sales are still strong, which is great news.
This is the last day of October, and therefore the end of “Prodigy Month” for this blog. I will still post Prodigy related news and stuff, but the Prodigy theme will be gone by tomorrow.
The Prodigy’s “Their Law” album went straight (!) to number 1 in album sales this week in the UK.
Did I mention that PRODIGY ROCKS already? ;-)
I picked up “Their Law” at the post office today. I was so excited, I had the CD out of the jewel case by the time I was back at my car. Since the first CD contains well-known singles (which I’ve already listened to millions of times), I skipped it and started playing the bonus CD. From what I’ve heard so far, IT ROCKS!! I can’t wait to get the DVD that I ordered.
“FUCK ‘EM AND THEIR LAW.”
UK Festival Awards is here, and The Prodigy are nominated as best dance act. It’s easy – go to the voting booth, in question 3 pick The Prodigy, and pick “Don’t Answer” (last option) in all the rest of the questions. Then click the “Submit” button at the bottom of the page.
The Prodigy released today “Their Law” – their “best of” CD and singles DVD. Here are some links to Amazon, to make it easier for you to order the goods:
- One CD version (just the singles)
- Two CDs limited edition version, which includes 2 new tracks, b-sides and live tracks. This is actually what I’m waiting to listen to most.
- The DVD
I already ordered my copies of the limited edition CDs and the DVD. How about you?
Also, The Prodigy’s website has been updated with a new design, great artwork and some new cool loops in the background.
The last time I saw The Prodigy live was at Reading Festival 2002. It was a dream come true for me, in the sense that The Prodigy always give their best shows in the UK. Although I went crazy dancing and shouting during the concert (for a few seconds there I actually lost my breath and thought I was about to faint), it was still not Prodigy’s best. One reason is that in that festival performers get only one hour for their show, and a full live Prodigy show is longer than that.
The second reason is that it was a bad time for The Prodigy as a band – they were trying to do a comeback with material that was written in a very similar pattern to their previous album, so it wasn’t that ground-breaking as you’d expect from new Prodigy material. Luckily, later on Liam Howlett (Prodigy’s prodigy) realized what was happening, went back to the drawing board and brought back with him two years later the fourth album, AONO (Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned).
But don’t get me wrong – the show still rocked and the crowd went crazy, which only goes to show why The Prodigy are such a great band.
The Prodigy made a very cool video clip of the new remix of Voodoo People, a track from their second album, Music For The Jilted Generation. The remix sounds fresh and the video clip looks great. Anyway, I love it. To download, look for the word “Pendulum” at The Prodigy.nl.
