This review is from: System Of A Down (Audio CD)
Since it was first released coming up four years ago, the question has to be asked- why didnt System get big from then? Systems debuet is definately better than Toxicity.Every song on this album is sheer quality, and no matter what your favourite style of metal is there is something here for everyone. From the opening ringing of "Suitepee" to the sheer chaos of "P.L.U.C.K." this album does not disappoint. Taking influences from all genres and succesfuly mixing them together to form a superb mix of musical diversity, this is one not to be missed.John,Shavo and Daron provide what is the perfect metal soundtrack with Serj's voice acting as a fourth instrument.He sings better than Chino and screams better than Phil Anselmo, with a host of crazy,quirky sounds you normally wouldnt expect from metal thrown in for good measure.
Its hard to choose "Best" tracks but id hafta go for "Know","Soil","War?" and the crazy polka beats of "Peephole".Better than its sucessor,and like Star Wars, every home should have a copy.
