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

5.0 out of 5 stars great CD to have hot wild sex to !! June 28 2007
Format:Audio CD
Anytime I'm getting ready for a hot, sweaty session of raunchy good fun in the love shack I pop in this CD!! Crank up "Wild, Sweet and Cool" while you're getting busy and neighbours be damned !! There's gonna be a whole lotta noise !! Does this scene sound familiar to any other TCM music fans out there?

5.0 out of 5 stars Grew on me Aug. 24 2004
Format:Audio CD
I must admit, after picking up this CD I felt dissapointed after Vegas. PHD and Name of the Game were the only two songs to really jump out at me. Since rediscovering this album, I've found that it's a great piece of work, which really should never be compared to Vegas, as both carry a fundamentally different sound. Tracks such as PHD, Roll It Up, The Winner, Ready For Action, Blowout, and Tough Guy (Best song BY FAR) are highlights on this recording with only one significant downfall: Track 4, Murder.
Definitely good as an electronica album, or for fans of altered states.

4.0 out of 5 stars A strong second album. June 15 2004
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars The CD That Doesn't Stop Giving May 8 2004
Format:Audio CD
This CD is by far my favorite CD to go running to and I really enjoy it. This CD has The Name of The Game, And Murder featuring Scott Weiland of Stone Temple Pilots. Other lesser known songs are Over The Line and Wild Sweet Cool. The whole CD is amazing but those songs truly stand out. This CD is an excellent rainy day CD, it will truly make you feel like you are sitting out in the sun somewhere. This Cd never stops giving, the more you listen to this CD the more it will grow on you and become a permanent part of your stereo. The Crystal Method has truly outdone themselves.

1.0 out of 5 stars Tweek-END April 19 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is by far the worst Crystal Method CD of all time.
It is uninspired, unintelligent, and over all an hour of time that you'll want back. In short, it sucks... go buy Vegas or Legion of Boom instead.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not that bad April 12 2004
Format:Audio CD
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars "Calling all FREAKS!" Jan. 26 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
"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!

5.0 out of 5 stars New School Crystal Method Sound
The Crystal Method has changed directions with this album. They sound a little bit less club/house but they still have that Techno/Electronic/Trance/Dance sound.

Great cd. The beats just keep coming on this one. Though I think "Vegas" is a bit better overall, "Tweekend" contains their best song. "Name of the game" rocks your socks off. Read more
