The Crystal Method take their first stab at film scoring with LONDON, a movie which (as of this writing) I know little about, other than the fact that it takes place in New York City. Still, it sounds like TCM are adapting to this new role quite nicely on this soundtrack, though whether their more casual fans will want to pick it up remains questionable.

As far as new material from TCM goes, LONDON is probably best thought of as an eight-track EP with 6 bonus tracks from other artists (one of which is remixed by TCM). These songs aren't quite as danceable as those on their previous releases--but then, these songs are primarily intended to reflect the mood of the on-screen action; that's the nature of film score (as opposed to straightforward "dance music"). That said, most of TCM's songs (with the title trac being a notable exception) can get you moving, and "Smoked" and "Roboslut" are good enough to work on their own without the rest of the soundtrack as

The non-TCM stuff (tracks 2, 4, 8, 9, 11, and 14) is a mix of rock and electronic music. It's pretty good, though why the decision was made to put all of the rock tracks on the second half of the album confuses me--though perhaps this has something to do with when the songs are played in the actual film. Particularly notable are The Out Crowd, whose "C'mon Children" is a wonderful bit of psychedelic retro-rock goodness (though the lead singer sounds eerily like Bernard Sumner of New Order), and Connie Price and The Keystones' wonderfully jazzy instrumental "Sucker Punch." Evil Nine also turn in a fine contribution with "Restless," which sounds like bit like an electronica tune as performed by the Hives.

All in all, this isn't a bad set of tunes--it's a little short at 55 minutes, and none of TCM's songs crack the 5-minute mark, but this is still a very entertaining soundtrack.

Crystal Method is a longtime favorite. Hearing their music in various Movies and Shows I was quite surprised to see that they were tapped to do a movie soundtrack. I have to admit I have not seen the movie, instead I let the music fit the theme and tell the story. I have seen reviews where groups like Crystal Method that don't (at least in this area) get great radio airplay, do something like this and are called sellouts. Instead I delight in the fact that someone like them get the chance to strut their stuff outside of the clubs and CD player. It is one of the staples that I keep in my CD changer in my car. If you have not tried this one I suggest you do. And if you are new to The Crystal Method, try it. I don't think you will be disappointed.

First off jdizzle or whatever the idiots name is doesn't seem to understand that this is a soundtrack and that they made the songs for the film and obviously if you would watch the movie first then you'd understand why these aren't really club worthy songs. either way everything they did fit the film really well, the songs on the cd are in the order that they appeared in the film so whoever said they didn't understand why the rock songs were at the end thats why. don't get me wrong though the movie wasn't good at all but what tcm did really worked well for it and there are some pretty good songs on the soundtrack.

Rock on! The Meth is back. I was browsing through amazon and decided to look them up to see if anything new was coming out. That was December...and it was a long wait knowing that far in advance and being such a big fan. Don't try and get this at Best Buy or Circuit City. I scrambled around on a lunch break looking for it there and neither had it. UNREAL!!!! Skipped over to FYE and they had 2 copies ordered and that was it. Needless to say, I am satisfied with my purchase! Please keep in mind, this is a SOUNDTRACK! So, you will not hear a lot of the same stuff you have heard previously. But real fans of TCM, will KNOW it's TCM! The only thing that lacks on this disc are the songs by the other artists other than TCM which consists of Tracks 2, 8, 9, 11, and 14. Track 2 and 14 has grown on me, but the other tracks are on my skip list. Aside from that, this is a pretty good effort by TCM. Track 7 is my absolute favorite at the moment. Stand out tracks are Tracks 1, 4, 5, 6, 7, 12, and 13. All by TCM, of course. You will not be disappointed with this soundtrack if you like electronic music and definitely if you are a fan of TCM! A must-have!

There are some great tracks on this CD but some that are crap. I have never seen that movie, but I fully enjoy The Crystal Method and picked up this CD for the tracks they lay on this album. Worth the purchase for songs it offers.

While London was met with mixed reviews, the Soundtrack that The Crystal Method put together to support the album was such a beautiful thing. The sad part in saying that is the fact that it was a somewhat hidden gem because of the nature of the beast it was meant to support and, had I not tripped over it while shopping for new sounds, I wouldn't have noticed the soundtrack at all. Moreover, had the soundtrack not proudly displayed that it featured an "Original Score" by The Crystal Method I wouldn't have known this even if I would have tripped across it, and the only reaosn I found this listen was because I picked up the album to move it aside and then saw what it was advertising.
It feels good to find hidden gems in our forays.

One of the first misconceptions about The Crystal Method is that they've never done a soundtrack of any type. To the contrary, The Crystal Method has supplied a lot of music to many a project and they've put together a flow of mixes and remixes to power soundtracks and to place in the videogame realm (game title - N2O). Added to this si the fact that they don't make music that is generally just music - the type of music they make is conducive to being a soundrack already.
As I listened to the album I thought of that, and through my turns I was reminded of how well they managed to put sounds in the midst of imagery. As far as London went, I was reminded less of their first two albums and more of their Legion of Boom entry, sensing its influence in over half the album. Granted, some of the songs really did have an older feel: Smoked had a Tweekend sort of feel to it, proclaiming to all those "Midwest b-t-es" that "all those Darvocet and Vicodin couldn't save them from their lives.
