System of a Down: Mezmerize

Sound — 10
Sound is great, I love the guitar, very melodic when it needs to be but heavy where it has to be. Not what I expected (which was something more like "Steal This Album") But it was more like a CD with all they're other CD styles mixed in. Byob is very much like Sugar from "System Of A Down" Sad Statue and Soldier Side are like Ariels and Chop Suey from "Toxicity" and Everything else sounds like "Steal This Album." Overall I can honestly say I love it.

Ditto to my statement about the sound.

Overall Impression — 10
I love it, it is the kind of cd that if you lose it, you hunt forever for it then scrounge all the pennies together that you can to purchase it again. I had only one major problem. Daron. He sings way to much, I mean what is Serj supposed to do stand off to the side and look aimlessly into space. Ok I know Daron does have an "ok" voice, I guess. But he is taking over the band and he is going to run them straight into the dirt. But what can I say I love the CD.
