Remember Supernatural, Santana's 1999 comeback that wasn't technically a collaborations album but motored on guest spots from Cee-Lo, Lauryn Hill, Eagle Eye Cherry, Dave Matthews, Eric Clapton, and the deathly, repining ubiquity of Rob Thomas ("Smooth")? Yeah, now you do . . . sorry. The Crystal Method coerced just as many friends into cameos for May's Divided by Night, but to decidedly headier effect; it's their most striking and rock-based electro since 2004's game-changing Legion of Boom. Unlikely clubbers Emily Haines (Metric), Jason Lytle (Grandaddy), Matisyahu, and many more gave solid hooks to the albumwho will show up tonight? You, if you want to bop to one of the best live dance acts on Earth.
