    Read Review

  5. 7.0 |   Uncut

    No Tourists positively benefits from its echoes of past glories. Print edition only

  6. 7.0 |   Exclaim

    If you don't mind a little bit of posturing with your bone-cracking beats (and the beats throughout are certainly as solid as any Howlett has written), then No Tourists has you covered — but the title says it all: This one's for the locals

  7. 7.0 |   God Is In The TV

    'No Tourists’ is perhaps what a Prodigy Bond theme would sound like
    Read Review

    By now, the band know what they do well and ably show that they still have plenty of petrol left in the can to throw on the fire

    Read Review

  12. 6.0 |   Clash

    ‘No Tourists’ is unlikely to win The Prodigy any new fans but it’s unlikely to upset any existing ones
    Read Review

  13. 6.0 |   All Music

    Even though No Tourists is yet another same-sounding entry in the Prodigy's late-era discography, it's also another satisfying dose of thrills designed to wreck the dancefloor and the mosh pit

  14. 6.0 |   Mojo

    No Tourists may be an open-topped bus ride around a familiar sonic landscape, but it's also a lot of fun. Print edition only

  15. 5.5 |   Spectrum Culture

    A fun romp through the past
    Read Review

  16. 5.0 |   Loud And Quiet

    ‘No Tourists’ will doubtless fare better in a live environment than it does on record, but it does leave you with the unshakeable sense that The Prodigy are in considerable need of an ‘Invaders Must Die’-style reinvention if they’re to remain relevant in the studio

  17. 5.0 |   The Music

    Beats get smashed out like typewriters having a hissy fit
    Read Review

  18. 4.0 |   Q

    Much of what follows sounds like he's set his overdriven synths to autopilot with vocalists Keith Flint and Maxim Reality reduced to the odd irate interjection. Print edition only

  19. 4.0 |   musicOMH

    Making this record probably did bore them, just as it bores this reviewer to listen to most of it, and while there are signs of life in places it’s mostly, to quote Jeremy, so futile

  20. 3.0 |   Drowned In Sound

    The only reasons to recommend this record over its predecessor is that it’s shorter and doesn’t have Sleaford Mods on it
