Homework: Max Davies: Album Cover Analysis: The Prodigy - The Fat Of The Land

Fat Of The Land is the third album from The Prodigy,It was released 30 June 1997 on XL Records. The title is saying which relates to being wealthy and the fact the cover is on an exotic beach, emphasis the message of wealth.

It went straight to number 1 in the UK album charts. The album has gone double platinum, selling over 2 million copies. The album entered the Guinness World Records as the fastest selling UK album and was nominated for a grammy. The album had three singles: Firestarter, Breathe, Smack My Bitch Up.

When i saw this i was very surprised as it is a whole new direction from the last covers. The cover is very vibrant with colour and stands out with orange's and blue's. The reason for the crab is something i couldn't fully find out, but my thoughts on it is that it is random, this could be a relation to the drugs at the time. The effects of the distortion and blurry could also be a relation to drugs and the feeling of being 'high'.
