    It's Good... but Not Great

    A few months ago, when I first heard The Crystal Method had released their new album, I was pumped and eager to go buy it. ''Vegas'' was simply awesome and had me hooked from the first listen. After listening to ''Tweekend,'' though, I knew that it was no ''Vegas.'' Where ''Vegas'' used rhythm and beats to intrigue listeners, ''Tweekend'' uses somewhat hollow vocal samples. ''Vegas'' was a groundbreaking hit, whereas ''Tweekend'' is a highly anticipated, perhaps overhyped, album with little to offer in comparison. However, as I said, ''Tweekend'' is not ''Vegas.'' It is obvious that Scott and Ken are testing new things in their music, and that is respectable. ''Name of the Game,'' the most popular track on the album, does remarkably well in intertwining The Crystal Method's rhythmic beats with the rage inducing guitars of Rage Against the Machine's Tom Morello. Another great track is ''Roll it Up.'' It avoids the cheesy, almost pointless, vocals on some of the other tracks, and keeps true to the beat-driven nature of The Crystal Method's previous tracks. While these songs, along with a few others, are great listening, it seems like the album as a whole is missing something. I get the impression that Scott and Ken wanted to go a little more mainstream with ''Tweekend,'' but in doing so, they abandoned some of what made them a hit in the first place. Despite all of that, the album is still pretty good. It's not a must-have album like its predecessor, but it does make for a good listen. By the way, if you ever have the opportunity, you have to see these guys live. The CD just doesn't do the music justice once you've heard the live mixing. The bass is so much harder, and the atmosphere just makes the music come to life. Plus, the visuals they use are off the hook.
