The Crystal Method is one of the more famous bands of the electronic dance genre. Though the band took a brief break, they came back strong with their new album Divided by Night. The album not only is energetic and catchy, it is a new sound for Crystal Method.

New single "Drown in the Now" has the reggae element of featured artist Matisyahu, yet still incorporates the electronic music of the Crystal Method. The fusing of these two genres is interesting and enthralling. Matisyahu's soothing voice accompanied by the techno music creates a very lively, energetic sound. Not only did the duo blend electronic music with reggae, they also experimented with hip-hop.

The track "Sine Language" features a hip-hop beat blended into an electronic beat. This song is loud and upbeat, and also has lyrics. Though the words are hardly understandable, the lines are rapped, giving the song more of a hip-hop element. While there are songs with singers, both girls and guys, there are also tracks like "Smile?" that are purely instrumental.

Divided by Night is a new sound for the electronic duo; luckily, the new sound is refreshing, organic and a good change. | Shelley Kaur
