As a long-running Crystal Method fan, I was severely disappointed with their latest offering. Having really enjoyed their collaboration with Martha Reeves last year as well as the non-album songs 'Make Some Noise' from the "Real Steel" soundtrack and 'Lucian', my hopes were high for their 5th album. I also thought that 'Divided by Night' was brilliant, so I figured that a mere repeat in form would have sufficed. Unfortunately, this album is a massive let down for me. The band seem to have taken the collaboration approach from their last album and let it lead them in a much more commercial and tacky direction. Awesome tracks like 'Dirty Thirty', 'Smile' and 'Blunts and Robots' which featured the usual blend of powerhouse techno and experimental synths have vanished, only to be replaced by poppy, production heavy, cut-to-shreds dance tracks that sound more like Skrillex and The Glitch Mob than The Crystal Method or The Prodigy.

I, for one, severely resent the influence of Dubstep on modern music and I hate it when bands that I love like TCM or Papa Roach succumb and implement elements of this dreadful genre in their music. The result? An album that is simply way to jumpy in places, almost so that it just becomes annoying. It's a shame too because some of the vocal contributions aren't bad, they're just surrounded by tacky music. Basically, this album sounds nothing like their classic work like "Vegas" or "Tweekend" and, although I support musical progression, I resent the way that the band has let modern the modern EDM scene brush off on them.

Hardcore fans may still enjoy this album, if only for the tracks 'Jupiter Shift' and 'After Hours' which I did enjoy. However, I don't recommend many of the other tracks.

One of the best albums I have heard in a while. This album has a crisp mix of well produced tracks, dirty beats with fitting vocals peppered with rolling 80's ish bass guitar. A nice addition to the Crystal Method stable of music.

Crystal Method rock! I wanted some new material for my iPod to play in the car. I would usually just use 1 or 2 tracks from an album, wound up putting the whole album on there! *****
