System of a Down: Toxicity

Sound — 9
Unique. There is no other band like SOAD out there. Daron is an awseome guitarist, Shavo is one of the best bassists alive (or dead for that matter), Serj is great at whispering, screaming, and giving that wierd deep sound he does, and the drums are some different. Then again, everything about them is different. Shavo stands out in Aerials with that bass solo. There will never be another band that is as strange sounding as SOAD.

Wierd. They are friggin' wierd. But, that makes it easier to find out what it means because it's not like every other band. Serj and Daron are excellent when coupled together. It's heavy when it's supposed to be heavy, and soft when it's supposed to be soft. Although make a little less wierd, it's still worth $15.

Overall Impression — 9
Like I've said, no other album can compare to Toxicity. Undoubtfully their best one yet. Most every song is wirth listening to.
