iTunes Review

For more than a decade, the Crystal Method has been making dance-floor dynamite that appeals to diehard techno heads, as well as adrenaline-chasing music lovers. The American duo has conquered raves, radio, and remixes, collaborating with everyone from Rage Against the Machine’s Tom Morello to the Roots-affiliated rapper Rahzel. On Divided By Night the party starts with the title track, a mid-tempo composition with shades of electro funk, and then we’re treated to “Dirty Thirty,” a dramatic, New Wave-influenced instrumental featuring New Order bassist Peter Hook. Metric’s ice-cold vocalist Emily Haines adds pop bliss to utopia-kissed “Come Back Clean,” while a similar, almost-ethereal vibe is evoked by Stefanie King Warfield on “Black Rainbow.” Hasidic rapper Matisyahu sparkles brightest on the synth-spiked tsunami “Drown In the Now” and proves musical collaborations can be greater than the some of it parts. Divided By Night illustrates Crystal Method’s willingness to continue challenging preconceived notions. 

Customer Reviews

Weak!!!

The Crystal Method that I found to love was in "Vegas", "Tweekend", and even in "Legion of Boom". This album is trash compared to those. I appreciate how TCM is trying to reach out and collaborate with other artists, but it sounds pathetic. I don't like the effect that these artists have on TCM. I love TCM because of their funky, electro beat, their danceable rythms, and their electronic sound. "Divided By Night" has none of that. It's a lot of acoustics, vocals, and lame melodies. Track reviews: "Divided By Night" (3/5), "Dirty Thirty" (2/5), "Drown In the Now" (3/5), "Kling to the Wreckage" (2/5), "Smile?" (3/5), "Sine Language" (3/5), "Double Down Under" (3/5), "Come Back Clean" (1/5), "Slipstream" (2/5), "Black Rainbows" (1/5), "Blunts and Robots" (2/5), "Falling Hard" (2/5)

An album that takes a lot of risks, has a few missteps, but is still worth owning.

In the age of the ultra pretentious DJ as rockstar shtik, I love that The Crystal Method is just two guys who love making music, and love making music that makes people party. I also love that they keep exploring their genre, and pushing its edges. Vegas was such an epic ground-breaking album, they could have simply cranked that out four or five more times and called it a career. So this album is ambitious on a few levels: You can't quite properly call this a rock album (though there are tracks that rock), and it's not a totally electronic album. Some really excellent collaborations with musicians and vocalists (my favorites being the tracks with Peter Hook and LMFAO), but still with a lot of the trademark Crystal Method riffs and big synth sounds. They're exploring new territory and taking risks. The collection is great -- pretty even, but if you're looking for dance floor anthems like Trip Like I Do, Keep Hope Alive, or Born Too Slow, you're gonna be a little disappointed.

Far From The Crystal Method's Best Work

I credit TCM for sparking my interest in electronic music with 1997's Vegas. I've been an avid listener ever since. Unfortunately, this album marks too great a departure from The Crystal Method's true form and I fear many fans will find it disappointing. Over the years, TCM has been adept at mixing great beats, interesting dubs and cool sounds. Divided by Night simply lacks the elements that have made TCM what it is over the years. With the exception of Drown in the Now (which is great!), the album never gets out of 1st gear. It is boring and flat. Most of the songs are nothing more than a weak vehicle for even weaker vocal performances. In fact, many of these songs sound like they belong on the B-side of a Castlevania soundtrack. I have much respect for TCM, but they've missed the mark with Divided by Night.

Biography

Formed: 1993 in Los Angeles, CA

Genre: Electronic

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

L.A.'s Crystal Method were referred to as America's answer to the Chemical Brothers. A dance-based electronic duo with a definite rock band feel, the comparison seemed appropriate, although it tended to erase what made the group distinct: a solid base in American hip-hop, rock, soul, and pop. Formed in 1993 by Ken Jordan and Scott Kirkland, Crystal Method was the longest-running stop in a string of projects that led them from their native Las Vegas (and some forgettable four-track stabs at vocal...
