Product Description

Product Description

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

It took the Crystal Method a few years to make the follow-up to their smash debut Vegas, but the wait was almost worth it. This American techno duo doesn't enter any uncharted territory on Tweekend, as they dive right back into the same waters they first tested with Vegas. On this CD, the beats are a bit thicker and heavier, and there's hardly room to catch your breath in between the pounding bass lines and screaming electronic effects. The Crystal Method must have enjoyed collaborating with other artists on that South Park disc, because special guest stars are all over the place on Tweekend. Rage Against the Machine's guitarist, Tom Morello, might as well be an official member of the band now - he plays on some songs and produces others. Producer Jon Brion, best known for his work with Fiona Apple and Aimee Mann, gets production credit for the slightly hypnotic track "Over the Line." Scott Weiland of Stone Temple Pilots (and numerous rehabilitation centers) joins the band for "Murder," which just happens to be the weakest track on Tweekend. That's probably not a coincidence. It was reported that Fiona Apple is on this CD somewhere, too, but good luck finding her angry little voice anywhere. Tweekend is techno for the masses, but it's rarely been done better. Songs like "Name of the Game," "The Winner," "Wild, Sweet and Cool," "Roll It Up," and "Blowout" are all above-average dancefloor movers, with infectious beats and state-of-the-art sounds. You'll probably be hearing the songs from this CD in a lot of television commercials in the near future. In this case, that's a compliment.

I did not realize that The Crystal Method, who created 4 years ago "Vegas", one of the best techno albums ever made, had a new album out until I read somewhere a couple weeks that Tom Morello, my guitar idol, from (now sadly broken-up) Rage Against The Machine did some work on this album. I was very happy about this and bought the album immediately. This album is definitely one to play in a car with some mad bass (it is astounding on this album -- blow out your speakers at own risk) or at a party, and also to listen to just when you're doing something boring. Tracks 2 and 5 are my favorites so far, because Tom's trademark guitar sounds are evident on both tracks (1, 3, and 6 are also great), but the whole album overall is not as striking and just not as good as Vegas was. It may take some time to get hooked on this CD like most albums, so I will give it some time...but so far The Crystal Method defines techno music today. And I read in an article that Tom would want to be a permanent addition in the band "only if they worked faster"...that would be wicked awesome, so Scott and Ken, get to work on the third album NOW!

It's funny how good music can remain forever linked to important events in your life. For me, it was the summer of 1997, and my life would never be the same. It all began on the second to last Friday in July, when my older brother finally coaxed me into taking that bus from Atlantic City to Manhattan to visit him. It was at a restaurant on that same night that I met the girl of my dreams, later prompting me to move to NYC, start a new life, get a real job, get engaged, etc. Of course, before any of that happened, there were a couple months' worth of Friday night bus trips to Manhattan. Crystal Method's Vegas became the soundtrack to most of those trips; I remember hearing "Keep Hope Alive" as the twin towers appeared on the horizon, feeling that a great weekend was dead ahead (and I was right every time). Needless to say, Vegas held, and will always hold, a very special place in my heart. Despite the fact that my electronic tastes have since gravitated towards trance, and that most of Vegas' songs later got played out in movies and commercials, it doesn't take away from the fact that the album contains some great music.
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.

The sophomore effort from The Crystal Method, Tweekend is a lot like its predecessor Vegas. It has a massive mixture of samples ranging from synthesizers to drum machines to heavy metal riffs; it has offbeat sound bites (serving as lyrics) that seem to repeat themselves just a few too many times.
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.
