I'm gonna have to say this is the best System of a Down album, and just goes to prove why they won Best Alternative at the MTV awards, and I love every song on it. Favourites being..... Soldier Side, Kill Rock 'n' Roll, Hypnotize, Tentative, Vicinty of Obscenity, Dreaming, Lonely Day (ok so that's most of the album. Although just a word of caution, if you didn't like Mezmerize that much (as I know some people didn't) and especially the last four songs, then you may want to be cautious here, because this isn't a really heavy album, so people who were expecting something like the first or second albums be warned. But of course that's where System of a Down excel, they aren't afraid to try something new and radically different, and this album fills both, and with some of the most powerful political songs I've ever heard this is sure to be a great hit.

This is not SOAD's best album, but it comes mighty close. This is my second favourite album behind 'System of a Down'. All these SOAD fans that were expecting a great year of the heavier material from SOAD's early years would be disappointed with this and Mezmerize. But this album is one of the finest pieces of work released last year. The music and lyrics are different on the two latest albums oppose to earlier work as Daron has taken the helm. The album is much more tuneful than any of SOAD's work before.
The powerful thrashing 'Attack' opens the album and is a fantastic opener, with a nice little guitar riff repeated throughout.
'Dreaming' the next track is possibly the worst on the album, but it is not a bad song, it's just not up to the standard of the rest of the album.
'Kill Rock 'N' Roll' is a great song and really shows how well Serj and Daron's vocals can work together if the song's right.
'Hypnotize', the first single from the album, is possible the most sing-along-to-able of the album, and is the most appealing to a large audience.
'Stealing Society' has a great opening and is a highly charged song throughout, always keeping the pace high and with the odd mosh moment.
'Tentative' also shows how Daron and Serj can fit vocals together and it's such a powerful song you can feel emotion tearing out of the CD whilst listening to it.
'U-Fig' is my favourite song on the album. It's just so, wow. It doesn't sound like that much in the opening but when Serj comes in with a slightly demonic scream of 'Melt In The Sun' it really gets going.

I have been looking through the reviews that this album has got and have been shocked to see such terrible ones. My first thought was "Am I on the right page?!" and my second was "Oh dear, I think it's time I said something!"

Hypnotize is an amazing album, with a great variety of songs that will suit your every mood. The album consists of incredibly moving songs such as "Holy Mountains", "Soldier Side", "Lonely Day", and "Tentative". But you can always count on System to add some fun, upbeat and amusing songs to an album too. "Vicinity of Obscenity" and "She's Like Heroin" are ones that come to mind.

Guitarist Daron Malakian is more involved in vocals in Hypnotize than in any other album, and that is not necessarily a bad thing, although some people believe so. When Serj and Daron sing together, it is absolutely wonderful, their voices are fantastic in different ways and it sounds great when they are singing together.

Songs that you MUST listen to and enjoy are:

Dreaming - my favourite song, a song in which Daron and Serj's voices merge together and result in the most beautiful song. Amazing ending to the song too!

Soldier Side - We heard the intro in Mezmerize, now hear the full song. Very moving, although touching a sad subject, System manages to make this song one of the most likeable ones.

Holy Mountains - All true System fans know the subject, everyone does. This is a song that will start waterworks for those who understand it. It is beautifully sung and beautifully written.

This album delivers everything one would expect from S.O.A.D. It is the 4th S.O.A.D album I've bought, and I would rate it as the 2nd best, after Toxicity, an absolute classic.
There is barely a bad track, and it contains some brilliant songs, such as 'Kill Rock n' Roll', 'Attack', and 'U-fig', to go with the single 'Hypnotize'.
The best song, however, is Soldier Side, a lyrical attack on the war in Iraq, written from the perspective of the soldiers families.
This is an excellent album.

..more than a return to their earlier style, which means that as on their previous album Mesmerize they are indulging in their (or perhaps mainly Daron Malakian's ability) to write strong melodies to incorporate into the usual metal formula. They also have the luxury of not one but two members who can actually sing (think how much and how many metal groups would be improved by the presence of just one!). And while some fans have criticised the use of Malakian as a lead vocalist on some songs, I don't think there is any risk of sidelining the quite extraordinary vocal phenomenon that is Serj Tankian - long may he wail; it just allows them the opportunity for vocal harmonies, which is a rare treat in this genre. Overall this album is less 'hard' than their earlier stuff such as Toxicity, but less lyrically light-hearted than Mesmerize, with fewer comic moments. Serj returns instead to some familar themes, such as the Armenian genocide, American foreign policy and the decline of cultural and spiritual values in the richest country in the world, which to me makes a welcome change from teenage alienation or simplistic bubble gum pop. With luck it should satisfy the headbangers while still being radio-friendly enough for a wider audience.
Musically, if you liked Mesmerize, you'll like this, but if you are one of those who feel they've gone a bit soft of late and yearn for the harsher days of their first album, you are not going to be satisfied.
The Duo-disc format gives you a DVD side which includes the videos for BYOB and Question, and a rather cut-and-paste 10 minute film of snippets of studio footage and what looks like edits from a forthcoming video for Soldier Side.
