System of a Down: Mezmerize

Sound — 10
The sound on this CD is amazing I mean its a mix they took all different types of genres of music heavy metal mostly, some punk and some screamo and 1 Marilyn Manson sounding song. 01. Soldier Side (Intro) - nice way to stary off the album. 02. B.Y.O.B. - one of my favorite songs on the album has awesome guitar riffs and nice drums and it goes from loud to soft to loud to soft and then loud again. 03. Revenga - awesome song has a really cool intro and guitar all the way through. 04. Cigaro - has fast beat drums and a catchy guitar tune. 05. Radio/Video - again soft to loud and one of my favorite songs on the album has a really catchy intro and chorus. 06. This Cocaine Makes Me Feel Like I'm On This Song - cool catchy guitar riff and nice bass lines I guess. 07. Violent Pornography - awesome song one of my favs once again starts off clean guitar then it has distortion. 08. Question! - starts off with a nice acoustic song and then it turns into a really fast paced song. 09. Sad Statue - awesome song starts off with a cool riff and then a nice catchy chorus. 10. Old School Hollywood - this song kind of song like This Is New Shit by Marilyn Manson which by the way sux but this song has a really cool sound. 11. Lost In Hollywood - one of my favs once again and a nice way to close the album.

The singer skills are awesome I mean he suddenly goes into softness then screamo then hell do something really hilarious.This album has pretty good background vocals.

Overall Impression — 10
This album cannot compare to any other artists because there is a lot of genres. I love the fact they mixed the songs into different genres and they are a different band then most other bands out there. I don't hate anything about it. If it were lost I would definetely buy it again or just knock the guy out who stole it.

    Also Cigaro, worst song they ever wrote. Nobody cares about the size of your c**k.
    anyone who doesn't understand sarcasm won't get half of what SOAD writes.
    The Spoon
    Good album. Cigaro is just funny to listen to because the lyrics are so bad. I could write better lyrics. Same with Lonely day, but thats on Hypnotize.
    personaly i think Toxicity was System of a downs best album. But when i here Mezmerise for the first time I new they were going to keep making S.O.A.D fans Happy in the future.
