System of a Down: Mezmerize

Sound — 8
SOAD is back and just as good as ever! The new CD sounds great and has some of the best SOAD songs ever on it! There is crazy screams on "Byob" to the mellow choruses in "Lost In Hollywood." It is a great CD with many different sounds to it. Sadly, I have to say Toxicity sounds better so it gets a four.

Lyrics are always good with SOAD. There about of course the government, hypnotizing TV and how it is ruling the world. Big corporations saying they are bigger and better than everyone else, Serj and Daron have some of the most unique voices in the music industry today. With Darons high pitched voice and the multi voiced Serj, they make a great team to make great vocals.

Overall Impression — 10
I would say this is the best CD next to Toxicity. "Lost In Hollywood," "Old School Hollywood," "Violent Pornography," "Cigaro" and "Revenga" are all the songs I would recommend listening to. I would buy this CD over and over if it got stolen. Then I would have to hurt that person. There is no hate for this CD. Buy it asap! What are you doing? Go get it right now!
