I'll admit I'm not a long-time fan of TCM, but a handful of their songs (across all albums) I really like a lot. I think I was hoping to be blown away with something that has been a long-time in the making. While I think it's technically sound and the "long-time" fans are appearing to love it, I'm not really impressed. I can tell one or two songs off the album will likely go into my regular listening rotation. After more listening I may grow to love more of the album. But, for me, picking this up at full-price the day it came out was not a good idea.

I'm a long-time fan of these guys. Been listening to them since the early days of Vegas. I have liked/loved most of their album releases until the last one "Divided By Night" which, in my opinion totally lost TCM spirit with too many collaborations.

Well this new release definitely brings that new spirit back with an album that is almost PURE ELECTRONIC MUSIC! One of TCM's signature sound elements has been the use of electric guitar synths which really sets them apart as electronic music that you can also rock, jam, dance your ass off too. This album is filled with that sound, and a lot of tasty layered textures that will have you captivated.

In a genre that is filled with a lot of generic progressive house music and repetitive club music (a lot of which I like btw, but it is rarely unique) TCM still stands out as electronic artists who can stand out from the competition bringing something fresh to the table.

My favorite tracks are "Sling the Decks", "Storm the Castle", "110 TO THE 101", "Jupiter Shift", and "Dosimeter". They feature some of the hardest beats on the album, and are the ones that IMO stand out the most.

The album starts off with "Emulator" which is classic TCM sound which starts slow and gives an almost intro-like riff that opens up the atmosphere of what is coming. "Over It" is one of the tracks that I like the least cause its not really TCM, but they have to mix it up to be versatile. And after that, is "Sling the Decks" which gives you the first "HELL YEAH" moment as far as I'm concerned when listening, and the songs just build up in energy after that.

I'm a lifetime fan of TCM, but this is not a fanboy review.

I think I got "Vegas" the week it came out. Remember watching "Third Watch" when the series theme music("Keep Hope Alive" from 'Vegas') was playing and giving yourself that knowing inner smile? And more recently listening to the theme to "Bones"? I have all of TCM's albums, and I was so excited about this release (new TCM!) that I pre-ordered it.

It's a matter of personal taste, of course, but I was not that impressed with this record. When I played the first cut, "Emulator", I thought I was listening to Broken Toy, which is too bad, because Broken Toy does Broken Toy better. A bright spot for me is the next cut, "Over It (featuring Dia Frampton)", which is classic slamming screaming-siren synths with some absolutely mesmerizing vocals.

More high spots are "Jupiter Shift", "Metro" and "Grace (featuring LeAnn Rimes)". Who woulda thought TCM and LeAnn Rimes, right? But it works, and in fact is probably the most radio friendly cut on the record. I don't know if that's a coincidence or not. "Dosimeter (featuring Nick Thayer)" is also a song with a slamming groove. Think of that fat chunky synth in "PHD" on 'Tweekend'.

Most of the rest of the songs seem filled with emotionless sameness, which is odd to me since Scott Kirkland has gone through so much medically. Usually when people go through life-altering events it tends to make them more emotional and sensitive.

I think TCM feels too much of an obligation to those around them who've helped them in their career (and their peers), that they feel compelled to put out records like the "Community Service" series, which in my opinion completely suck. So when they put them on their own studio albums, it seems to dilute the incredible artistry TCM puts into their music. Think "Vegas". THAT'S The Crystal Method. Yeah.

Their first two albums were like a breath of fresh air to the music industry.. Let's just say I'm a huge fan of the first two albums.. There's really no accounting for what happened here on this CD.. The volumes will frequently rise and fall i'm not sure if they were trying to make a statement but it's fairly annoying.. The worst part is the nondescript songs injected with the most annoying sound effects possible.. Hard to conceive of giving this album five stars.. I liked most of divided by night but this album is a complete loss.

I was kind of paranoid that the album would either be the greatest album to date. Or the worst album yet. I think it sits somewhere in between. Its not the classic TCM that I've grown to love. Every track has the same styled tone and sound to it and the drums almost seem digital. Unlike the rest, where every song has its own unique tone and sound. I was able to get over that pretty quick but their's a little bit of dubstep mixed in there that totally ruins the album for me. But then again, This could be the bridge that crosses the gap between bigbeat and dubstep genres.
