Q MagazineThe Prodigy's fifth studio album sounds just like The Prodigy should. Only leaner, harder, and even faster than before. [Apr 2009, p.96]
From the first track through its final seconds, Invaders joylessly stomps through overly familiar territory. It's another lunkheaded, loud mash-up of rock and dance, a sound now so beefed-up and campy that it's perhaps only suitable for shotgunning cheap beer and practicing UFC chokeholds with your pals.

stevehMar 15, 2009Invaders must die. The title track makes me feel 17 again. It's the dogs.
CarlH.Aug 24, 2009Best album I have heard in a long time.
IsaacAMar 3, 2009Personally I like this album, it's just an easy target for the critics.
NickSMar 7, 2009Great return from the Prodigy. Run with the Wolves and Stand Up featuring Dave Grohl's drumming are highlights.
GDubMay 22, 2009It's rather infuriating that, en masse, the million & one "lifelong Prodigy fans" have come out of the woodwork to call this album a It's rather infuriating that, en masse, the million & one "lifelong Prodigy fans" have come out of the woodwork to call this album a masterpiece. Because at best, this effort is just a really good party album, one that takes few brain cells to process and makes you none the wiser after it's last note rings out. The musicality is Liam's weakest yet and yes, even compared next to AONO, it falls short [go back and give a listen]. Like most band's musical journeys thru time, each of the follow up albums to the first was a half-step behind its predecessor in quality. Unfortunately for us, IMD doesn't stray from this knuckle dragging, dumbing down formula. Omen is the obvious standout here, and the top notch production blows all other contenders from IMD out of the pond. But the tracks go downhill after the first half, and one has to seriously question the intentions of the finale, Stand Up. Of course we still want to hear melodic, non-rock, brain candy music from you... but is this safe & barely mediocre effort any way to make a final statement? It was a bold but necessary step for Liam to create AONO on his own, without being dragged down further by the non-essential boys, and it paid off the best it could for that 4th album. Bringing them back now to rehash the same scratchy, uninspired vocals of yore just seems... very dated. No-one likes an old punk rocker nor revels in his dance. Youth is as youth does, and it's somewhat embarrassing to see these two guys turned into clowns with their fading tattoos and receding mohawks. Keep the party going fellas, just make it more cerebral next time.… Expand
JackSMay 23, 2009The Prodigy have done it again... unfortunately. The songs on this album merely repeat the same, uncatchy tunes with lyrics that The Prodigy have done it again... unfortunately. The songs on this album merely repeat the same, uncatchy tunes with lyrics that wouldn't even seem clever to a 9 year old school kid, over repetitive 'rave noise' for over an hour. Honestly, once you have listened to the opening of "Omen" you have basically listened to the entire song. This album is neither smart, new or worth while. Simply, save yourself a bit of money, as this album will be forgotten in a few years time, falling to modern day, worth-while musicians like Cold play and Green Day.… Expand
