This review is from: Legion Of Boom (Audio CD)
This is the third full length outing from the electronic/break beat duo known as The Crystal Method. Although it doesn't quite live up to the expectations that they have created for themselves by creating some fantastic dance/rock/hiphop cross over tune in the past, the 'Legion of Boom' is still an above average release in this genre that is plagued by albums with only one or two worthwhile tracks on them. Where this album fails is in the fact it rarely challenges the listener; while the music is all perfectly easy to listen to, it only occasionally reaches out and grabs your attention. Featuring guest appearances from Wes Borland (ex-Limp Bizkit) and Lisa Vennum-Kekaula (The BellRays) among others livens up the effort a little, but ultimately not enough. So The Crystal Method still stand head and shoulders above their contemporaries, they don't succeed in living up to their own genesis.
