About this album

Legion of Boom is the third official studio album by the band The Crystal Method. The album is a mixture of different genres, like the rough True Grit, to the wiry song Born Too Slow. Legion of Boom contains vocals from actress Milla Jovovich and Kyuss lead singer John Garcia. The album also contains riffs courtesy of former Limp Bizkit guitarist Wes Borland (who also co-produced three tracks) and vocal talents by er Rahzel. Its title is likely a reference to the supervillain team Legion of Doom.

An edited version of Born Too Slow was featured in the soundtrack for the video games Need for Speed: Underground and Donkey Konga 2. The song I Know It’s You was used in the pilot episode of the TV show Numb3rs. Also, the song Bound Too Long was featured on the soundtrack to the movie Cursed, and Starting Over was used in an episode of the TV show Alias and an episode of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. A different version of Weapons of Mass Distortion, renamed Weapons of Mad Distortion, was used in the movie Blade: Trinity.

Also, an interesting thing to note is the design of the album. As opposed to most album layouts, the tracks of Legion were listed on the front of the case, rather than on the back, with the album art placed on the back inlay.

This album also contains the only known time either members of The Crystal Method have provided vocals for a song. The song that features this is I Know It’s You, which has Ken Jordan singing through a vocoder.

The album was nominated for a Grammy in the “Best Electronica/Dance Album” category in , the first year that any award was given out for that category ever.

    I bought this for 4 dollars used and I'd only heard one of the songs on it. Best risk ever.

    First album I ever got by them in my teens last decade. I would say Albums Vegas, Tweekend, Legion of Boom are all excellent in their own ways. What happened to them after that?
