Sound — 10
This sound listens f--in' great. The guitars, the vocals, the bass and the drums - everything is terrific. The styles are still fantastic. It's just SOAD. A mix of different music-styles (armenian folklore, heavy-metal and on the song "old school hollywood" a bit techno). But the sound stays excellent.
Lyrics — 10
The lyrics are like on the old Albums. Political, a bit funny and critical about the world. The song "Violent Pornography" has the best lyrics in my meaning. The vocals are great. It's good that Daron sings more than on the former albums. The lyrics apply to the music.
Overall Impression — 10
My two favorite songs are "Lost In Hollywood" and "Radio/Video." I hate nothing on this album. I love everything. It can keep up with any other band like Metallica, Guns N' Roses or any other rock-bands.
