Sound — 10
SOAD has an extremely unique sound of their own that can never be redone by any normal person or group of persons. All of the screaming and chaotic background sounds and such are what make the band so different from everyone else. They did a good job starting and ending the album with quiet songs and Lost in Hollywood in my opinion is the perfect period for the album.

I love SOAD's sense of humor and they make me want to make a T-shirt that says "I support bands that complain about the government" which would be a true statement. SOAD always can find a way to make humor out of anything political which never should be humorous. Daron is a good singer on Lost in Hollywood and the song fits him the best during the really long chorus ending the song. Serj's best moment on the album is, to me, Cigaro because in the chorus, his voice sounds so cool with the Cigaro Cigaro Cigar.
Overall Impression — 10
SOAD is un matchable to this day and will remain unmatchable for a very long time so it would seem. The best songs are B.Y.O.B, This Cocaine Makes Me Feel Like I'm On This Song, Question, and both Hollywood songs. Not that the others aren't good because they are just these stand out the most. There is really nothing to dislike from this album except I accidentally bought the editted version thinking it wasn't editted so the packaging fooled me. And I didn't like Cigaro the first few times I heard it.
