The most impresive songs are, Attack, Hypnotize, Stealing Society, Tentative, Holy Mountains, Lonely Dayand Soldier Side.
The vocals, drums, bass and guitar go together perfectly and the lyrics are amazing.
Attack - best song to open up the album but also the most political on the whole CD.
For those of you who think the albums are better, your right.
Attack sounds almost like the old SOAD but not quite.
My favourite tracks are "Hypnotize", "Tentative", "Vicinity of Obcenity" and "Lonely Day".
Of course, I usually listen to other bands.
Some of thier songsare easy like roullette and hypnotize, but others are a little harder and require more skill like...
I dont have a favorite song on this album because all of the songs are just purely insane in their...
The variation in these songs contributes to an amazing album and sound.
Dreaming has an excellent vocal harmony throughout the entire song, the one good example of vocal harmonising on this record.
I listened to this album about 10 times or so until it really started to hit me.
I do admit, there are some weak points on this album, but other songs make up for it.
Sure, they'll always have Serj randomly doing his metal growl in songs where appropriate, but they also took a turn...
It's one of my favorite albums off all time.
It's pretty diverse in a good way. My personal favorite songs are Attack, Dreaming, Kill Rock 'N Roll, Hypnotize, Vicinity of Obscenity, She's Like Heroine, Lonely Day and Soldier Side, but hell the whole album kicks ass.
It's short, though. 35 minutes, I believe.
Their songs have more talent in one riff then some bands out there.
There is only one song that I think was a really bad song and that was "Visinicty Of Obscenity." It's...
The songs are a lot catchier. My favorite songs would be Dreaming, Hypnotize, and Tentative.
same SOAD though, great album, but too pop..
Attack - one of the heaviest songs on the album.
Soldier Side is an epic, and some of the other songs are pretty damn good too.
If this was stolen/lost, I would definitely buy it again..
If I had to choose 3 standout songs to let the public know what the album was about Hypnotize, Dreaming...
The most impressive songs on the album is Soldier Side, it's not my favourite, but the lyrics are good, and...
I think all the songs on this CD are great, they range from political (Soldier Side) to funny (Viscinety Of...
Throughout the album they return to their classic characteristics -and take them to extremes in many places.
The music, singers, lyrics are second to none.
Their lyrics are almost punk, in the matter they are putting down American authority, but they are honorable in their...
The only song that let it down was Vicinity of Obscenity, it doesnt have any partcularly rocky parts, but it's...
I felt like such a nerd, the second I walked out of the store with this cd, I grabbed my...
Lots of people say that their sales are proof of how bad the album is, but I disagree.
I think that it is better than most of the album released this year with a possible exception with Funeral...
By far one of the best this year, probably explaining why it hit #1.
this year has seen some of the greatest rock bands bringing out new and better stuff.
It is not better than Mezmerize but we can disregard about this, because this studio effort is not a dissapointment...
I truley believe System have changed the face of rock and just when you thought they cant do anything new...
Mezmerize was a bit better, but this is still very worth buying.
I, personally, prefer albums such as "System Of A Down" and "Toxicity," because of the heavier sound, but many people...
Don't get me wrong, I love System, but the new SOAD is way disapointing.
I most like the title track. It is one of those songs that makes you want to head bang and cry at the same time.
This band is in the top 15, at least, of new modern rock bands.
As System improves and matures, so does their music.
It is really close between Hypnotize, Mesmerize and Toxicity, but there again it might have a sly edge because of...
Like I said above in the first paragraph are the most impressive songs.
My favorite song s off of this album are Attack, Hypnotize, Dreaming, Kill Rock N' Roll, and She's Like Heroin.
The main downfall is the backseat Serj has taken on this album (and Mezmerise).
They can't it in any category. The are always changin their sound.
Attack - fast, furious and very System, with great lyrics to go with it.
Unfortunately, this might be System's biggest obstacle. This album seems to flow less than their previous releases.
Thrice's Vheissu is also fantastic, and full of lyrics that will make you think.
System Of A Down has the answer to what todays rock should sound like they prove themselves with this CD...
Althought the riffs on the first to tracks are preety alike.
That way I didn't waste $17 on this side of the album.
Attack - definetly a strong opener, the song kicks off with blazing guitar/bass/drums, slows down for the verse, then kicks...
Perfect match, perfect album overall. I love it.
Fast/heavy: Attack, slow: Lonely Day, weird but cool: Vicinity Of Obscenity.
The overative phrase being 'used to'. I'd say this sounds like a B-Sides comp.
Attack - power metal riff, light guitar verse, heavy chorus, great combinations, great song 9/10.
The fact that they have done this within the almost constrictive bondaries of their unique sound should be applauded.
Always contraversial in nature this album takes another stab at the United States government while still maintaining the fast and...
It combines great guitar with great lyrics. Dont get me wrong the other half was great but this one was so political and emotional at the same time it got to me better.
But how does it compare to Toxicity and the rest of the albums.
Mezmerize blazed the trail for this albums much anticipated release, and System deserve any praise that this album gets.
