We gave it a B-

On 1997’s ”Vegas,” the Crystal Method’s whirring, soul flecked big beat was such a kick even the Gap employed one of its cuts in an ad. Their overdue second album, Tweekend, offers more of the same — nice if one wants to hear gummier variations on the first disc’s ”Busy Child,” but not so interesting if one expected something fresh after such a long time. The slinky vocoder raveup of ”Over the Line” breaks the monotony, but charmless, clubfooted collaborations with ex Rage guitarist Tom Morello and Scott Weiland make this a semilost ”Tweekend.”
