For those of us who got into electronic music at the start of the decade, Invaders Must Die was a crucial album.  It saw The Prodigy cross into the mainstream and set the tone for all their subsequent work.

No Tourists’ opening track, Need Some1, is as heavy as you like, without hitting the same breakneck speed as some of the band’s earlier hits. We Live Forever kicks things up a notch and there’s a nod to brostep on Fight Fire With Fire. However much of the album, particularly Timebomb Zone, sounds a lot like what we’ve already heard before.  It isn’t realistic to expect a band of such a vintage to change their style completely, but some fresh ideas would have been welcome.
