Biography

Challenges in the recording studio are simply a necessary evil when you're a musician.However, the complications legendary electronic music duo THE CRYSTAL METHOD (Ken Jordan and Scott Kirkland) faced while creating their self-titled fifth album still remain unbelievable. More than halfway through the process, Scott Kirkland received news that would forever change his life.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Work of Sheer Genius 29 Sep 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Vegas has to be one of the best crafted examples of it's genre; creating a perfect fusion between breaks, techno and even a hint of trance. This CD is great to relax to or to go mental to. Well recorded with nice, clean, natural bass lines and mad drum tracks. Can't reccomend this anymore. I just hope they don't leave it much longer until they release some new material!

4.0 out of 5 stars A fine Big-time intro 9 Dec 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Liking all kinds of music, but especially various kinds of dub experementation, I had high hopes for this LP which I'd previously enjoyed tlistening to in chillout sessions in clubs up and down the UK.
I'm pleased to say I wasn't disappointed in hearing its transition from white label/dance floor to CD in the living room.
"Vegas" initially struck me as a cross between a grittier variation of the Higher Intelligence Agency's Two LPs "Colourform" and "Freefloater" and a smoother take on The Future Sound Of London (circa FSOL's ISDN, Dead Cities and their excursions as Amorphous Androgynous). However, the more I listen to it, the more I hear and the more I like it.
This CD takes ambient and techno and fuses it elegantly with drums and bass to produce something for dancing or just chillin out to. The sounds are almost exquisitely crafted, with a coarse, almost grainy edge that sidles alongside deep bass that goes through the floor before moving your internal-organs about. The 10 different tracks on Vegas are all very different and there's not a boring moment on the whole CD.
The Crystal Method clearly have a lot to say and this first LP is hopefully a showcase for future world domination.

5.0 out of 5 stars Whoa! This rocks! 23 Mar 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Wow! What a CD! The first track i heard by The Method was the one with Filter and that was ace! Sort of a rock/trip hop crossover. I got the UK 12 track copy with that track on it and Now Is The Time, so it's definitely worth tracking down that copy as Now Is The Time is psychotic! If you've got a car and you want some speeding music, this is the stuff to listen to.

4.0 out of 5 stars Crystal CD is almost gold 8 Mar 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I bought this CD because I had heard a few of the tracks before. And After a few hours listening I would have to say it is a satisfying buy. The Sound is like Chemical Bros meet Prodigy which if you are into trance will go down well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the best 15 Oct 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I will get straight to the point. Vegas is quite simply the best dance album I have heard, and I have heard quite a few. TCM's blend of breakbeats, electro basslines and bonkers samples are just mesmerizing. If the single 'The Name of the Game' is anything to go by, the new album will be worth the wait aswell...

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Fantastic! 24 July 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I have the UK version of this with 12 tracks and it is brilliant! I bought it because I recognised some of the tracks from the FIFA computer games and I wasn't disappointed. My favourite tracks are "Jaded" and "Keep Hope Alive", but every single one is a beauty. I can't wait until they bring out some new stuff. Until then, I'll keep listening to this. It's a must for all techno fans!

2.0 out of 5 stars Crystal method could have rocked! 13 Jun 2006
Format:Audio CD
This particular album has a great deal of potential, there were some very nice ideas, the problem was that their tracks became stale. Usually starting off well good intros to climaxin and then a lack of progression as they added a few breaks and rehashed the sounds already produced. A lack of direction is unfortunately not their major down fall it's their lack of diversity, I counted at least five tracks that sounded very similar. There style is similar as other people have said to the chemical brothers perhaps slightly harder edged, however this album is no where near as rewarding.
