Don't be put off by mixed reviews
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 04/06/2009 16:59:44
I'll admit that I was surprised by the negative feedback this album has received. But in all honesty, I can't find anything that is categorically wrong with Divided By Night. In fact, I've been listening to it non-stop since I purchased it.
Now it's not exactly the same sort of style that previous Crystal Method albums had. Legion Of Boom is the only album that I actually liked the majority of songs from, and even then, I really have to be 'in the mood' to put it on. This one is far more accessible to the mainstream listeners, with more guest vocalists than ever. But I don't think this is a bad thing.
Some tracks are somewhat lacklustre. The title track is one I never listen to, and so is the final track, 'Falling Hard'. 'Sine Language' features a band named "LMFAO", which tells you just about all you need to know about lyrical content of that song. If it wasn't for the gorgeous instrumental bits, I would skip that one too. But then there are songs that pop out and grab you in between such as 'Dirty Thirty', 'Double Down Under', 'Come Back Clean' and 'Blunts & Robots'. Highlights are definitely the two songs featuring Peter Hook of New Order.
So yes this album may lack the cohesion of previous Crystal Method albums, but overall it's a nice little record which will grow on the listener who gives it a chance and embraces the new direction.

Disappointing 4th album by the grandfarthers of BigBeat
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 22/05/2009 19:03:44
Having been 4 years since TCM's last groundbreaking album, Legion Of Boom, I was eagerly awaiting the arrival of this, hoping it picked up where L.O.B. finished.
Unfortunately, to their detriment, TCM have tried a different path, perhaps a watered down, more commercially acceptable version of their brand of rock inspired dance. To thier fans, I can only see this as a disappointment.
Their previous offerings were syntalatingly simple with bass lines and beats that would strip plaster off walls of houses. Unfortunately these now only provide a back drop to pointless lyrics and overly complicated construction, which take your concentration away from what are, possibly still ok tracks.
The album possibly is not all that bad in it's own right, but is more undone by TCM's glorious past. Unfortunately albums suck as Pendulum's In Silico and Prodigy's Invaders Must Die are out TCM-ing, TCM. Hopefully it won't be as long before we see another album where we see TCM doing what they do best and reassert themselves as leaders in this genre.
