Biography

Challenges in the recording studio are simply a necessary evil when you're a musician.However, the complications legendary electronic music duo THE CRYSTAL METHOD (Ken Jordan and Scott Kirkland) faced while creating their self-titled fifth album still remain unbelievable. More than halfway through the process, Scott Kirkland received news that would forever change his life.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Solid Crystal Method Offering March 17, 2008
Format:Audio CD
This alblum is the result of a colaboration between TCM and Nike. Nike asked them to arrange the songs so that they would provide a good pace and mood for a runner on a roughly 45 min run. The songs are arranged accordingly and are cross-faded so there are no gaps in between, it's a seemless block of 45 min techno. As a bonus, we also get the 4 original songs at the end of the running/ jogging mix.

The style is that of a typical Crytal Method alblum but only very slightly more subdued. They generally put at least one track with a fast pace and a heavy guitar riff on the cd, but this one comes in without any such track. That certainly doesn't take anything away from the CD though, it is great! I would have spent the $10 just for songs 3,6, and 8. This is a must have for Crystal Method fans and great music for running or driving (as the name suggests!)

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good CD February 20, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I purchased Crystal Method's Vegas CD several years ago. I was not accustomed to that type of music, but when I heard it playing in Borders book store I decided to investigate. I was told what CD it was and I purchased it. I really liked it a lot and use it a lot when I work out and driving. I was also pleasantly surprised to find that Vegas was the soundtrack for the movie "The Replacement Killers."

Well recently I thought I would check out more music from Crystal Method. I checked out the reviews on Amazon.com and purchased Drive. At first I didn't think it was as good as Vegas, but realized that the themes are very different. Vegas has more of a groove to it (not that it is a groove just more than Drive). Drive is great for motion. If you are exercising, driving, riding your bike, etc. than this CD will be great for you. There isn't one slow song on the whole CD and there are no breaks between tracks--just smooth transitions. The CD has grown on me and now I listen to it more than Vegas.

There isn't a lot of bottom in the songs (deep bass lines) and it isn't a groove (like R&B, funk, etc.). However, it's just great music to move by. It grows on you too even if you aren't used to listening to techno music like I was.

I recommend this to anyone who wants music to move by such as working out, riding your bike, or like the title says, drive.

2.0 out of 5 stars Buy Any Other CM Album May 8, 2009
Format:Audio CD
First off- the Crystal Method are brilliant. If I could describe this album in a word..."standard". I had much greater expectations from this ground-breaking duo. Nothing struck me as new or innovative. Was a bit on the boring side at times and although I'm sure the folks at Nike are happy with it, it sounds pretty bland. It's not 'terrible'. Just too 'generic' sounding for a band with so much character.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good CD June 23, 2013
Format:Audio CD
Not their best work but still better than most every other band out there making techno. If TCM didn't make other even better albums, I would have rated this with 5 stars. They only compete against their own work.

5.0 out of 5 stars TCM April 29, 2013
By Jared
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This was created originally for the nike run. It was a continuous song that gave a warm up then the middle of the run and then the finish line. If you look at each of the songs names, starting line, it hertz, etc it is a metaphore for each name while doing the run. I listen to it everytime I get on the treadmill. Keeps you going.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delivers what it promises March 31, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a bit of an odd CD in that it isn't exactly an album as such. TCM have re-used some themes from tracks which were previously or subsequently released but there is quite a bit of fresh material on this disc and much of it is classic Crystal Method although perhaps toned down a little to make it a bit more mainstream, for the Nike crowd.

But that isn't necessarily a bad thing. There's plenty of TCM's signature sound here - heaps of bass, great drum loops, complex and rich sounds and fat beats. Because of its nature, this album is a bit more "mixed" than a typical TCM album, with the tracks running into each other. That means you can listen to it all in one go (as intended) and it just sort of flows.

What's important is that it has the funk and groove we've come to expect from TCM. It's catchy and fun. In fact, it ranks among the better Crystal Method CDs. If you like drum and bass and/or dance music or are a big Crystal Method fan then you want this disc.
