  1. The duo wisely experiments with a wider variety of moods and melodies.
  2. 80
    With its soaring guitars and crashing drums, Tweekend sounds more like a rock album than an electronic album. [Aug 2001, p.77]
  3. It's still the group's own thumping concoctions--"Ready for Action" and "Blowout," for instance--that ring the loudest.
  4. A bit relentless at times, but Chemical Brothers fans should give it a spin.
  5. Tweekend isn't a giant leap forward for the Crystal Method, but it certainly doesn't keep them trapped in the past.
  6. 60
    Tweekend lacks the immediacy of Vegas, but it works better the further it strays from Ecstasy-fueled breakbeats and squawking electro-hooks. Unfortunately, it doesn't stray too far. [Aug/Sep 2001, p.122]

    Great followup disc. Music of this kind sounds great on disc but live and in concert is where it really blows your mind.
