Japanese Version featuring a Bonus Track; 'you Know It's Hard (John Cramer and Stephane K Remix)'
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

That's much more than I can say for "Tweekend". The album starts off with "PHD," a song that just never goes anywhere. A good description is that it would be the perfect mood music for changing a tire on the side of the highway. And, it pretty much carries that tone for the entire album; you keep waiting for it to kick in, but it never does. Some of these songs would be perfect in a movie scene of two guys walking across a desert. A few of the songs speed up a bit, but even those are repetitive and....BORING! On top of that, many of these tunes closely resemble songs previously released by other artists.Read more ›
What's different is that Tweekend doesn't sound as much like an action movie or sports show soundtrack as Vegas did. This one is a bit harder-edged. And the samples are paced better; its obvious that they have taken advantage of Sonic Foundry's Acid music editing program to lay down their tracks. (If you want to mix your own stuff, Acid is the program to get.) The result is growth within a field that tends to be panned for its repetitiveness.
Some of the techno-riffs sound recycled from Vegas, but for the most part Tweekend is a solid fresh work. If you are curious about the techno genre, both Crystal Method albums are a good start. My favorite track is one of the simplest, "Blowout." I heard it being used as background music during the 2002 Academy Awards telecast.
For parents: there are two versions of the album; one has the "Explicit Lyrics" label and the other doesn't. However, there are only a few swear words; you can hear the same things in a PG-13 movie. They're repeated a few too many times for my taste, but when compared to some of the misogynic rantings of Eninem and the like, these guys are pretty clean.
