PRODIGY & THE ROOTS

PRODIGY & THE ROOTS
July 4, 2004 MICHAEL KNUDSEN





hey kids – happy 4th! been catching up – and came across two new albums – both
worthy of a popbytes mention –

PRODIGY
Always Outnumbered Never Outgunned – due july 23rd (UK)
this uk
electro-rock band or whatever you want to call ’em are back – and what a return – this album
instantly grabbed me – it really flowed quite nicely – tis an eclectic mix of electro ‘beats’ and
riffs – along with the traditional rock out element – and some great vocals on a few of the tracks –
including a take off of ‘up up up and away’ (think nancy sinatra) called hot ride that
actually features actress turned rock bitch juliette lewis on vocals! i love that gal – plus an
amazing sampling from mj’s thriller in the song the way it is – and on the last track
shoot down – prodigy is joined by the gallagher brothers (think oasis – noel and liam) – what
a flashback to the 90’s…for sure check this album out!

THE ROOTS
TIPPING POINT – due july 13th
these smooth rap cats from philly
are back with a intelligent and chill album – their rhymes and raps just roll off their tongues – a
good friend introduced them to me yrs ago – and i have been a fan since – this one hits stores next
week – and the single dont say nuthin’ so be sure to check the roots!
