What are the advantages, if any, of using the Random class to return a random number over using the Math class?

Look at the last couple of posts in this link. I tested both and found the Random class to be faster.

From memory, I have looked at the source code for the Math class and seen that it uses a Random object to produce its values. This may be wrong in different versions of Java though.
