Crystal Method's "Tweekend": Disappointed... :(

"Tweekend" has all the hallmarks of The Crystal Method's style, but it just doesn't grab me like almost every track of "Vegas" did. Anyone else experience this?

I thought it was good... Just not really that long and low on replayability. I'll go back to it though sometime in the near future.

I expected a little more out of the album, but overall I was and still am pretty much pleased with it. I didn't really expect it to live up to Vegas because I don't think that's really possible to do.

I was hoping that they would at least put out a double cd since it took those fools four years. I was a little displeased with it myself, but you have to hear their album in a very nice stereo to get the full appreciation for it. The same was true with vegas. I loved bumping that cd in with my 2 12" subs (in my car). Try listening to vegas with a couple of subwoofers and you will never listen to anything else.

Love the song Blow Out. That is one of the most amazing surreal techno songs i ever heard. Great for night driving.

Wow, does this get the record for oldest thread bump?

I liked Tweekend, especially Blow Out, PHD, and Over the Line.

Legion of Boom was more of a disappointment to me, mainly because I don't want vocals in my electronic music. I Know it's You, Weapons of Mass Distortion, and Starting Over are my favorites there.

The London Soundtrack just came out, with a score done by The Crystal Method. It has a few good songs, but mostly mellow stuff. The songs not by TCM are better, in my opinion.
