Why I Enjoy Them: While I definitely had a soft spot for The Prodigy and their singles during the 90s and early 2000s, it wasn’t under 2009’s Invaders Must Die that they really became a band I truly appreciated. I’d grown into electronic music as I got older and the song Omen was like a bolt of lightning to the music adoration part of my brain. The entire album is great, but I love that particular song to death. And their follow-up in 2015 was also up my alley, cementing them as an electronic band I had high regard for. I was on the verge of going to see The Prodigy perform live this year on their tour and now I’m sad that I won’t ever get to see them live in concert.
