System of a Down: Mezmerize

Sound — 10
I love the music! It is so open and creative. You'll never hear anything else like it except their other CDs! This album is solely created off of amazing music and set me free vocals. Daron Malakian (sings lead on most song and plays guitar) is amazing! He defines talent, but the real credit goes to the entire band for makign this kind of music that gets fans and the people involved. I love the song Lonely Day. It is totally different than the rest of their songs. Sort of ballad like and has an incredible guitar solo. If you are into heavy alternative music, youll love this CD.

Awesome and meaning lyrics. Very melodic and metaphoric. The lyrics couldn't go with other riffs. Awesome compliance. They were made for each other. These are some of the most talented singers in the business. They sound very harmonious together.

Overall Impression — 10
This makes no comparison at all. Totally different. Something new. You'll love it from Attack to Soldier Side. Every minute of it baby. Some of the most impressive songs are Attack, Dreaming, Holy Mountains, Lonely Day, Tenative, all of the songs are truly impressive. I love all of it. Hate none of it. If I lost it, id buy 30 more copies so if I every lost it again I wold have several more to spare.

    One thing i dunno why ppl say that violent pornagraphy is not very good.. men they that U ppl are watching Tv all times and got no life.. ANd at the end it say : can u say brainwashing? THats real ! where in a sheep society and sry for ppl who hate mezmerize/hypnotize but u are all wrong. we do not LOOOVE system because of their so political, yes we do but hte most part of our love Is beacause of the great siging melody and guitar/drum/bass tabs.
