As a TCM newcomer - Tweekend is the first one to me, I really appreciated the entire album. Specially when I'm listening it in my car, fully bombing the subwoofer and overheating the amplifiers, or even to dance, my favourites are 'Wild, Sweet and Cool' and 'Murder'.

Now I go ahead with Vegas and more...

The follow up to Vegas was very well worth the wait. Lot of awesome special guests (DJ Swamp, Scott Weiland, Tom Morello). Great for any techno/trance fan. Can't wait till the tour starts.

Crystal Method is on the verge of becoming the very best that electronica has to offer. This album has such a wide variety of styles mixed in with the ever present CM vibe and hard breakbeat sound. With a few guests like Tom Morello(rage against the machine) and Scott Weiland, the album keeps pumping out one awesome track after the other while keeping it diverse and slightly different from Vegas, their debut album. If you like hard hitting electronica without a dull moment, these boys got your fix.

This album is the best album to hit the stores in years. The arrangements are incredible while maturing past their old cheese-techno Vegas style. Now it encompasses a little more of a variety, ranging from tracks that are heavily R&B influenced to tracks that seem more industrial influenced.
This is a beautiful electronic album and should be revered as the best album of the year.
I cant recomend this album enough.

TCM's first album, "Vegas," had a distinctly identifiable energy that is absolutely missing in all parts of this album. It seems this more downtempo album is an album's worth of "Comin' Back" remixes, with the addition of "Name of the Game," to which the term "Crystal Bizkit" is begged. The beats in "Tweekend" are decent enough to get the head bobbing, but didn't exactly make me want to get out of my chair.
The album starts off decent enough with "PHD," but any build-up felt gave way to 10 other tracks that didn't pick up the energy and take off with it, as their first album did. That's most likely a sign of their "maturation" as a dance act, but after awhile of listening it became easier and easier to predict the boredom that was going to come next. It seems like Scott Kirkland and Ken Jordan wanted to take part of their formula for success, taking a vocal sample or two and repeating them throughout the song, and beat it to death over the course of the album without really having any success to it.
"Ten Miles Back" is the only track on the album that I don't mind listening to, but as I mentioned before, they did this sort of track much better (IMO) in the first album.
Not that it'll matter to the MTV crowd at any rate, since they'll probably be bigger than Moby by the end of the year. Hopefully they've learned how to do a live show, because they seem to be very much sponsored by TDK. As one of my friend's said to the band after one of their "gigs": "I haven't seen anything like that since American Bandstand started making the bands actually sing."
It's really a shame, because their first album actually had some appeal.

Am I the only one who didn't like this album? Compared to the first this one sounds uninspired and unoriginal. I can't tell one track from the next, they mainly consist of repeating synth/drum tracks and a few scattered, mostly unintelligable lyrics. Don't get me wrong, I loved Vegas, one of the best CD's I have. But Tweekend came up far short in my expectations. Save yourself some cash, listen to a friend's copy or just pass on this one. I sure hope their next release will be better.

Tweekend is all that I'd hoped it would be. I am very impressed, and it is clear that an enormous amount of effort was put into it to make it perfect. Track 9 ('Over the Line') is my favorite track, and I really can't listen to it enough. There was enormous pressure to come up with something good after 'Vegas' and they delivered. Two thumbs up for sure.

I loved Vegas. With this album they abandon techno and try some leaden rock beats. I guess they want to be The Chemical Brothers.
Listen to "Name of the Game" before you think about buying it.
Even the cover is ugly. It looks like a Supertramp album (Crisis, What Crisis?)

Lets get this straight: THIS ALBUM IS AWFUL. I would give it 0 stars if it was possible. Why, you ask? Heres why: On this cd it seems that Ken and Scott have said "Hey! Apparently, formulaic song-writing is the way to go! Hand me those funky beats and voice samples, we've got an album to make!". And damn, thats exactly what they did on this album. Predictable songs that arent even backed up by nice sounds. This is one of the worst sell-out attempts I've heard yet. Another reviewer really hit the nail on the head calling this "Crystal Bizkit". It's an album that tries to win you over by showing how "hardcore" it is. The hard songs are ridiculously cliched and weak and the easier songs are boring as hell. STAY AWAY FROM THIS ALBUM.

Bland, cheesy 'electronica' from a pair of Chemical Brothers wannabes. To be fair, some of the tracks here show signs of inprovement from 'Vegas' but overall they blend into one big nothing. The sounds and beats on this album are all so played out and there really isn't much to to set the tracks on this album apart from each other. Its a case of 'the hip-hoppy one','The one with the funky guitar lick','The one with the washed up rock vocalist'...In the end it just all seems so contrived and generic. Check out 'It came from Africa' the Chems are so far ahead of the game that It's laughable.These guys have been riding their tails for the last 5 years. Why must we be so behind the times in this country????????
Give it up fellas, It's geting stale.
