    This is a brilliant--and brilliantly brutal--collection; pulsing dance music that, for all its heaviness and techno sensibilities, retains a glimmer of pop accessibility because it’s so well pieced together and just so much fucking fun. Viva The Prodigy.

    Once again, it's a sonic petrol bomb that makes you feel like you've been set on fire, and once again The Prodigy have proved nobody does it better. [3 Nov 2018, p.59]

    This is arena-moulded rock-rave, rather than the unhinged, roofless futurism of their 90s albums, and it’s glorious, dumb fun.

    Overall, it’s an album that ably and enjoyably revisits their classic sound, while never quite escaping the long shadow of those former glories.

    At times, No Tourists feels like a companion to their debut. That was the night out and this is the morning after’s hangover. While this isn’t vintage Prodigy, it gets pretty damn close and gives hope there is still life in the old dog yet.

    No Tourists is unlikely to win The Prodigy any new fans but it’s unlikely to upset any existing ones. And really, if rave-influenced industrial dance is your thing, these old heads are still a cut above anyone else out there.

    ‘Timebomb Zone’s ugly rave onslaught strikes first – you feel the stretch of a wince appear. ‘Champions of London’ and ‘Boom Boom Tap’ follow up with a one-two punch; you never saw it coming. Maybe ‘Give Me A Signal’ would be a late highlight, and it is, unless you’ve heard ‘Higher State Of Consciousness’ more than once, or ‘Poison’, for that matter. You never stood a chance. The only reasons to recommend this record over its predecessor is that it’s shorter and doesn’t have Sleaford Mods on it.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Whole album is not radio firendly except ns1 and luts other tracks are straight from underground.

    No tourists the track is TFOTL meets James Bond meets Gun Reprise. Its like it was riped of the fat of the land and put in no tourists. Im gonna go that far to say its New mindfields. Epic track

    Timebomb zone. Reaction when u heard it is like the first time u heard wd. Indeed. Old skool one. Alfonso samples, pitched. Dance energy ready for a soundtrack of some highspeed racing Game.

    Boom Tap was the weakest but that **** is a grower.

    Give me a signal. Can You heaaar me. Pure 303 madness.

    Resonate. Its the pure formula prodigy track.

    Champions of London ultimate dnb experience by Liam lead by Vocals of maxim and Keef. Pure fire.

    Liam once again delivered.

    Better than tdime. Not commercial. Take the back of Liam crystal first.

    The Prodigy is back! Old-fashioned, brutal and I love it. This album is going back to The Prodigy's roots with bombing tracks. The only thingThe Prodigy is back! Old-fashioned, brutal and I love it. This album is going back to The Prodigy's roots with bombing tracks. The only thing that prevents me from giving a 10 is because the album is quite short. Would've love to have some more tracks in this style but we might get some more soon.

    Also given the genre they in they keep producing great tracks that are one of a kind all of their own. You won't regret buying this album.
