  "Experience" is the debut studio album by English electronic dance music band The Prodigy. It was first released on 28 September 1992 through XL Recordings.

Apart from Liam Howlett, who is responsible for all the compositions, out of the additional three members at that time, only Maxim Reality provides contribution by performing the vocals on the last track. A wide variety of artists in the breakbeat hardcore scene in the early 1990s are given respect and namechecked in the sleeve notes of the album, including SL2, Carl Cox, Moby, Tim Westwood, Orbital and Alphex Twin.

Experience peaked at No. 12 in the UK Albums Chart.
