Artwork looks like it could be by Luke Insect, (who created the IMD and NT artwork). The title I feel just reflects the reggae vibe he's going for in some of the new tracks. Love More could also have a deeper meaning, possibly pointing towards how he feels after loosing Keith. Besides, Prodigy have One Love and Your love as track titles, plus Phoenix was originally "Love Buzz" as well, don't see the problem tbh.


Maybe the cover art is done by Luke Insect (who's work I actually like) but still the cover artwork looks a bit out-dated when it is the same style seen with the We are Noize project releases' cover already a few years back.. Maxim himself is a gifted graphic artist, why he does not use his own distinctive art (if the cover art is truly someone else's doing) !?

I also liked more the original Maxim logo with a liquid like styling..

Maybe there is some reggae thing going on there which I am not that familiar with. So I have to accept your explanation Jimmy Mcgroe on that one.

But I really can't see the connection: The Prodigy haven't underlined the Love using the word as a album title or highlighted that in any other way either. With individual tracks the usage of Love word combined with heavy beats have had a cool effect or contrast in all those Prodigy tracks you mentioned. So maybe this decision of Maxim's would not have irritated me that much when used as a single track title. But to use it as a whole album title as to describe the entire vibe of the album.. Meh... like I said before: a real turn off. Sorry.

Maybe this decision is reference of missing deeply Keef but he could have done that also by simply dedicating the album to him (which he probably also has done) and instead of giving the album an ambiguous title that rocks or even gives good shivers and builds up the hype for the album release.

As an addition to this opinion: I have worked really hard to accept the track title Need Some1 as a Prodigy track name. Maybe today I have finally starting to except that decision because of how good the track actually is :-D

Just listened to it.. hmmm.. Really like those sub bass kicks in the background. And also the Kanye West kind of twisted usage of human voice humming.

But this track reminds me too much Fallen angel era, not the better era of Hell's Kitchen.
And those simplistic lyrics are like he did not come up with better ones so he just repeats the title over and over again.
Just like in several tracks of Fallen Angel.

Damn, this was a disappointment! :(

And really awkward decision as a first single and even more awkward decision to put this as an opening track for that album!
Unless it describes the rest of the album perfectly (or Maxim wants to surprise us all with the rest of the album).

We shall see but for the time being I won't be holding my breath..
Damn again!

This song "Feel God" is like partying at 13:00 on Monday.

YouTube always have that picture of a white guy with a shaved head as Maxim's picture. I assume that is a different, much less famous Maxim.

Maxim's music has never been special for me at all, I remember buying My Wep EP in 1999 and I was utterly disappointed with it ( I was expecting a Prodigy thing indeed). Then, Hell's Kitchen had some good tunes on it, Carmen Queasy and Killing Culture were good but the album had too many fillers.

Then in 2005 I saw that I Don't Care video...I decided to ignore his music, it was really awful (I know this type of opinion will not be popular in this sort of forum).

This track is just...MEH.

I remember the XL site used to have a video of Dog Day back in the 90's, I always liked that track. There was also a tune called Bounce to Diss on their but I can't remember who did it.
