The Prodigy are one of the most explosive bands of the 90's. Their electrifying performances took them from small underground clubs to audiences of 30,000 at raves and now they're packing out stadiums all over the globe. 

Evolution follows the highly charged career of the most dynamic group to come out of rave culture. 

The Prodigy refused to compromise their music or attitude by being drawn into the mainstream and albums such as Music for the Jilted Generation and Fat of the Land were thecritically acclaimed result.
