DVD release 'Their Law: The Singles 1990-2005' containing a 10-song live set from Brixton Academy (20 December 1997), 15 promotional videos and also 8 bonus videos including unreleased 'Behind the Scenes' content.

I'm not sure why the first reviewer says that the videos might stop you liking the band. In my opinion they only help to take you through the bands journey. The early videos encaptulate the band in the hay day of British rave culture. These videos look a little childish because thats what the rave culture was about. People packed in to warehouses dancing with glow sticks, blowing whistles and wearing glow in the dark face masks. The earlier videos perfectly capture this time. The next set of videos from Music for the Jilted Generation perfectly capture the dark grungy development of the band. Each video is a little darker as we progress in to the next album the fat of the land. Here we have ground breaking videos like firestarter and breathe. The prodigy managed to inspire me time and time again with each album they released. Liam Howlett managed to perfectly capture dance culture at that time of each release and has kept the music fresh for almost two decades. I feel that this dvd only helps you realise how important the Prodigy were to the rave culture and ultimately the house music culture of today. The prodigy helped develop house music in to the main stream and have been at the cutting edge for a long time now. If this dvd doesn't help you to understand the band and therefore enjoy their music more, then you don't understand what they are about.

And finally you get a live concert from Brixton Academy, which is fantastic.

I would certainly recommend this dvd to anyone who is a die hard fan of the prodigy, but also to anyone who wants to see a flashback of rave culture in its hay day glow sticks and all.
