Reviews:

''Vegas'' is the debut album by the electronic music duo The Crystal Method.

"Busy Child" features portions of "Juice (Know the Ledge)" by Eric B. & Rakim. "Trip Like I Do" uses samples from the Jim Henson film ''The Dark Crystal'' and the female vocals heard throughout the song were taken from an answering machine message that Scott Kirkland had received from a woman he met in a club. "Keep Hope Alive" contains elements from a speech by Jesse Jackson. "Bad Stone" features samples from two Bill Cosby stand-up routines, "Tonsils" and "Chicken Heart", which were both from his ''Wonderfulness'' album.

The short hidden gap after the track "High Roller" is a repetition of the start of the Massive Attack track "Hymn of the Big Wheel". - Wikipedia
