System of a Down: Mezmerize

Sound — 10
The guitar just has this huge crunch that makes up a lot of their sound, and can be very melodic. The drums are really well oiled pounding machines of fury, and the bas if very dark and melodic, flowing along with the band for the merry go round of terror that is SOAD.

Lyrics — 10
I have to say, SOAD have the most random hilarious lyrics, and that's why they are a great band, some of the lyrcs are funny and happy, while others impress the sadness put into them for you. They mainly have no joint to the music they are put for but they are great. And Daron's voice is great on this album, he did much for singing. Serj has a wacky voice that is great.

Overall Impression — 10
Great CD, you must get this. Everything is great, and the songs are diverse and great. Check this out for some great music.
