Steal this Album? It's worth every penny!,
This review is from: Steal This Album! (Audio CD)
Well. This SOAD album consists of (I think) mainly b-sides and unreleased material. Therefore, even those acquainted with System should find something new here. And new it is. This album is mad. The songs range from the classic System style of Chic 'n' Stu (see what they did there?!) and the softer Aerials-like Ego Brain and Roulette. There is the seriously mad F**k the System, the comically lyrical tracks like Boom!, and the usual SOAD-controlled-noise-metal tracks like Streamline, Bubbles, Nuguns and Mr.Jack.
There is only one flaw with this album, and it's nothing to even bother with. There is one or possibly two depending on your cynicism songs that are very 'Aerials'esque. But it still makes for fantastic listening.
A word of warning - those new to System of a Down would be better off opting for self-titled or Toxicity LP's before this, as it would be harder to swallow for the uninitiated!
Congratulations to SOAD on another musical masterpiece.
