The Crystal Method - Divided By Night

Released: May 12, 2009 Tiny E

Addicts, be it meth or techno, age just as horrendously, as former child stars clinging to the same youthful seductions. When the Crystal Method say they don't like formulas--just before one endures the patchwork museum piece that is Divided By Night--it's clear the problems of addiction to old squelchy presets and tired song structures has its own tedious soundtrack. This is electronic by numbers--replace the dude from Filter with Matisyahu, lather, rinse and repeat-which decays faster than an unstable isotope. So follow suit and allow this inconsequential ad fodder to fade into nothingness like vapor from a pipe. Contributors Peter Hook ("Dirty Thirty") and Emily Haines ("Come Back Clean") are so much better than this.)
