All Music Guide - John Bush
Method men Ken Jordan and Scott Kirkland have angled for the mainstream with each of their full-length releases, so it's good to see a mix album from them. It's doubly good, too, when they call on quality breaks brethren from overseas -- Plump DJs, Koma & Bones, ILS, Dylan Rhymes, Hybrid -- for productions. Just like any quality dance mix worth its salt, Community Service starts out a bit slow, but begins cranking it up by track five, with the Plump DJs' remix of Orbital's "Funny Break One Is Enough." Squelchy effects and breakbeat techno by Elite Force and Dastrix lead into a mini-set of Crystal Method remixes, beginning with Hybrid's mix of their own "Name of the Game" ...

Squelchy effects and breakbeat techno by Elite Force and Dastrix lead into a mini-set of Crystal Method remixes, beginning with Hybrid's mix of their own "Name of the Game" and continuing through Crystal Method post-productions of mainstream tracks from P.O.D., Rage Against the Machine, and Garbage. All that crossover material makes it just slightly less exciting than leading breaks DJs like Adam Freeland, Plump DJs, or Stanton Warriors, but it's an imaginative, responsive mix nonetheless.

    Comparisons

    The Crystal Method is much closer to Adam Freeland's "Tectonics" than Stanton Warriors' "Sessions." TCM and Freeland use the full spectrum of sound electronica is capable of, where as The Warriors are stale, tinny and redundant. TCM and Freeland sample but stretch it into sophistocation instead of letting the samples just sit there as do the Warriors.

    TCM Breaks Out

    The phat techno world has just been improved by the addition of The Crystal Method's newest album Customer Service. Once again TCM has graced its listeners with some new tunage. This CD is fun, innovative, and is the way techno should be. This CD makes techno what it is today. With various remixes from today and yesterday, you'll be anything but dissappointed.
