Sound — 10
The sound is soft in the right places and heavy in the right places. You couldn't really put them in a genre 'cause it's all different, which makes them so unique. I think the war has inspires them for some of the songs on this album.
Lyrics — 10
The lyrics in all the songs are great. They are political/weird/funny/antiwar, which is heaps good. I love the singing in forest when at the first and second lines in the verses he screams. The Needles lyrics are funny, how unique to sing about a tapeworm. I think he is the only singer besides darkness who has the guts to make sounds with his voice, weird but funny.
Overall Impression — 10
It is the best album by any artist, ever. In my mind, noone has ever made a better song than Chop Suey. If I, or you lose this album, buy it again. It is worth it. The drumming, guitaring, and singing are awesome.
