Product Description

Amazon.com

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

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.

I think this album is probably richest for people who really like listening to interesting sounds and rhythms.
Ivan Drucker
Screw the "fans" of The Crystal Method's Vegas album who say that Tweekend and Legion of Boom are what caused the group to go downhill.
J.C.
A lot of the songs on 'Tweekend' remind too much of some 'Vegas' tracks, and to make it worst they lack their drive.

Tweekend - The Crystal Method (Review)
Category: Electronica
Artist Name: The Crystal Method
CD Title: Tweekend
Description: After reading plenty of the other Tweekend reviews on Amazon.com, and with no small amount of trepidation, I purchased Tweekend. Why trepidation? Well, after hearing Vegas, their first cd, a truly amazing album, I truly doubted if Tweekend, a cd that is supposedly "techno for the masses", could be as good as their first. I bought it nonetheless, even more eager to do so after seeing the video to their single "Name of the Game". So what do I think of the cd, as a whole? Great stuff, without a doubt. Just like Vegas, every song on it is good. No semi-weak songs, or terrible songs, or filler, all the songs were carefully crafted, and "tweeked", before TCM actually released the cd, which is why there was a four year period in between albums. Tweekend has a definete style to it, a more hip-hop, rock approach than the outer spacey Vegas. What is the result? A definetely different sound. Although a few of the songs on Tweekend resemble those on their first album, much of the content is original and creative.
Songs:
1. PHD
My Comments: One of the most original, coolest songs on the cd. Although when I first heard it, I was unsure if this was TCM I was hearing, but indeed, it was. It merely sounds different than anything they've ever made before. I was certainly suprised to find that this as the first song on the cd. This song is not "techno for the masses." It's complex beat and high pitched sounds make it difficult for non-techno fans to appreciate, but for one such as me, I truly admire the genius in this song. Flawlessly made.
Rating: 10/10

I was anxious to purchase this CD after falling in love with the duo's 1997 outing 'Vegas', but wasn't sure what to expect after reading some negative reviews. But after the arrival of the album I was very happy with my purchase. In a way the negative reviews lowered my expectations , thereby giving the disc greater listening pleasure. Anyway, Tweekend, while at parts sounding similar to Vegas is really a whole different sound altogether. By incorporating rap, rock, and even a bit of pop into a number of tracks they have created an album accessable to non-techno fans while not steering too away from what us techno fans want to hear. Here's what I think of the songs themselves.
PHD - What an opener. You really have to listen to this one with the bass cranked up, as that's where the song's rythm lies. Well timed bleeps and screeches and dark and cool lyrics help to make this track one of my favourites. 9/10
Wild, Sweet, And Cool - Not as complex as alot of TCM's other work, this is still a good track. I'd say it's similar to Vegas's 'Cherry Twist'. Could've done without the female vocals though. 7.5/10
Roll It Up - Not a bad track, but it doesn't really progress alot throughout the song. Not really much in the vocals department either. Good for background music. 7.5/10
Over The Line - I wasn't impressed with this one on first listen. But after repeat listenings the song's laidback and trippy sound has grown on me. 7/10
Name Of The Game - Rap, rock, and bigbeat are all seamlessly mixed together on this track. It's a bonecrunching number like nothing TCM have ever done before. The diversity gives this track an edge over the rest. 9/10
The Winner - This is a good followup to NOTG.

Now, I'm trying not to compare this album to Vegas, since many great albums have been dissed unfairly due to following up an even greater album. But it's just impossible to ignore the fact that Vegas was probably the best techno CD I ever heard, and this is not. In fact, it's tough for me to even say that this CD is good, since after listening to it a few times, I can't remember any of the songs. Almost every track sounds identical, and the only purpose of this CD seems to be to give your bass speakers a workout.
The reason I liked Vegas so much was that the tracks had more of a musical quality, and often had a sort of dark beauty to them. In addition, some of the songs were actually defineable as such. For example, "Keep Hope Alive" and "Trip Like I Do" were not only some of my favorite techno songs, but some of my favorite songs in general. But the songs on Tweekend are all drums and beats, with little music to separate them from one another. Admittedly, "PHD" is a nice experiment, and "Name of the Game" is ok. That's about it. If all you want is another CD to bounce to, this will suit your purposes. But Crystal Method are capable of so much more than this.

The Crystal Method's first album Vegas was an excellent album and held it's own in the large waters of electronic music. The media just ate it up, especially their song "Busy Child".
With the release of "Tweekend", they are back and have refined their skills to the likes of Leftfield. Every song has a hard bass lines, excellent use of samples, amazing melody, and a driving force bigger than a diesel truck full of adrenaline.
The production quality is outstanding. Every song has excellent fidelity and the bass is massive and clear. Ken & Scott took extra time "tweeking" the album until it was perfect and mixed everything 24-bit, then downsampled for a 16-bit CD. The two from Glendale took their time on the album and made sure they had a polished product. Since they have a 24-bit recording, I would LOVE to have a DTS release of this album (HUH?! MAYBE? PLEASE?!)
I do find one fault with this album. Some of the offensive samples they used could have easily been taken out and they still would have had a perfect album. They use the "MF" word in a few songs, and is not necessary.
If you can look past that flaw, you have before you one of the best electronic albums ever released. Crystal Method, I applause you and thank you for taking the time to make such an amazing album that stands heads and turntables above the rest.
