Product Description

Product Description

Amazon.ca

Initially, the sophomore album from California beat-shifters the Crystal Method sounds like the same psychedelic beats and psychotic samples that made their 1997 debut, Vegas, such a riot and established them as the only stateside dance act with real spunk. While Tweekend does apply similar grooves and siren sounds, repeated plays prove that the duo of Scott Kirkland and Ken Jordan have learned how to melt the mind in addition to rocking the house. With guest spots by Rage Against the Machine's Tom Morello and Stone Temple Pilots' Scott Weiland, Tweekend is both subversive and dance-friendly. In "Murder," Weiland sings over a woozy blend of crunching riffs, wah-wah guitars, Moog moos, and mysterious strings for a kind of twisted BT-like pop poetry. "PHD," "Wild, Sweet and Cool," and the organ-grinding "Roll It Up" are classic beats-and-bliss Crystal Method. But "Name of the Game" is straight-up rock and rage, while "Ten Miles Back" and "Blowout" are surreal drives into a nocturnal desert. Tweekend is so dense and delirious, it's hard to find your way out. But you may not want to return from this lost (T)weekend. --Ken Micallef

The Crystal Method's debut album, Vegas, is widely hailed as a classic, and appropriately so. The gritty and hip yet epic CD redefined what the "American techno" sound was, and made quite a name for the Method. Tweekend is their follow-up.
It's no Vegas, but as another reviewer here aptly put, "Did you really want it to be?" Tweekend is all attitude, something the opening track PHD makes sure you're VERY aware of from the get-go. The Method seems to have developed a love affair with the electric guitar and bass during their time since Vegas, and they wail throughout this entire album. Tweekend seems to follow a louder, stronger, harder doctrine, only really slowing down during Over The Line and Ten Miles Back (and even then, just barely). Fans of Vegas need not worry, however. Despite the massive changes to their sound during the first half of the CD, the second half drops into a more "classic" and electronic sounding style akin to Vegas. Never sounds like Vegas, mind you, but it sounds a bit more familiar to those looking for it.
Hip, aggressive and in-your-face, Tweekend is the kind of album that gives neighbors serious headaches. Tracks like The Winner, Roll It Up and Blowout scream to be driven (quickly) to, and would be very at home in a BMW, Audi, or Mitsubishi commercial. Ready For Action and Name Of The Game pump enough adrenaline into your speakers to make you want to start doing push-ups or shadow-box in your living room. Tweekend is Vegas' evil little brother, the one who wants amps that go to 11 on a volume scale of 1 to 10, and the one who has no problem throwing a major big beat party, with or without you.

This is Crystal Methods's second album "Tweekend" it took them almost 5 years to come up with a follower to the great "Vegas", unfortunately this isn't as good as their debut. "Tweekend" is not that bad, it got it's moments but only a few great one's compared to what i've expected. It's very noisy too, very rock influented but with a addition of some hip hop flavours too. Tom Morello and Scott Weiland appears on the album which is quite interesting to hear. The songs to check are "PHD" which is a great electro song with robotic voices, "Name of the game" noicy song with scratching and a mix between hip hop and rock, Not one of my favorites but notable. "Ten miles back" heavy drums and a very unique sound. "Over the line" which is slow, the only song. The rest are quite mediocre at best. The album is not bad at all like many say but compared to their last album it's a dissapointment. Still a good album, if you're into electronica.

"Tweekend", the long awaited follow-up to the Crystal Method's successful debut "Vegas", failed to capture the same success as it's predecessor, but is still worth a listen. I gave the disc 3 stars, but it's more like 3.5. "Tweekend" features 2 stand out tracks that, in my opionion, are worth the price of admission alone. "PHD", the discs first track, is a raw powerful groove filled journey through what sounds like an electronic wasteland. If there could be such a thing as "heavy" dance music, this is it. "PHD" starts the CD off with a promising bang, but then the disc just falls short to capture the listener's ears again until "Name of the Game" kicks in. Still to this day, "Name of the Game" is the best use of hip hop elements I've ever heard in electronic dance music/techno....period! "Name of the Game" is a massive audio attack on the senses and delivers that powerful wall of sound heard throughout "Vegas" that TCM fans love. However, the rest of the disc feels like the band just used their time, and money, to experiment and try different things (guest vocalists, etc..), but fail to come up with anything memorable that really gets the listener's attention. Is "Tweekend" a miserable CD? No, not at all. It has some powerful moments, but lacks powerful songs. It's the type of CD you'll end up loving 1 or 2 tracks from and dismiss the rest as "filler". For more great techno/electronica in the same hard style as the Crystal Method, I highly recommend mr.deviant's "Techno Obsession". If "Tweekend" fails to satisfy your hunger for agressive, hard dance music, then "Techno Obsession" will deliver the goods!

After successfully showing their international audience how technotronic music and themes from The Dark Crystal could energize dancefloors (and N2O - The Playstation videogame using Vegas as a soundtrack) and move minds, the Method decided to release the much anticipated Tweekend. It took a while to make to get it to me, too, and I found myself waiting eagerly for it to fall into my lap because I knew it would be good. And, quite honestly, I found myself happy with what they had constructed following the success they'd already established themselves as.
Scott Kirkland and Ken Jordon are one of those rare acts that actually seem to understand that star power doesn't mean you have to go with the glitter and the gloss. When Tweekend initially dropped, it came with an award of free passes to meet the duo backstage and I happened across one of those wonderful prizes. So, after a show that comprised almost all of their older hits and most of their newer album, I met the two and they were really a far cry from what one would expect from people producing quality material. Their energy level was there, mind you, and so was the creativity that you can feel flowing through the speakers when you play a little of their album. So, in that sense, it wasn't so unusual for a pair of people enjoying their music and actually giving something to it, too. What was interesting was that they seemed like people that enjoyed making music and that poured themselves into that tinderbox, taking all that time to actually make something and make it right. It wasn't about being seen but rather being heard. And I liked that about them.
For anyone that's never listened to the band, they have a way with beats that makes a person want to shed your boring pace.
