Toxicity is an awesome album! It won number 1 album of the year in 2001 and has very minimal flaws! Awesome lyrics and catchy rhythems make up this super album.
Negatives?........I can't think of 1 major flaw on this album its just that good.
System of a Down, Toxicity:
System of A Down really opens up the album with a real bang! The prison song is an absolutely fabulous song with great lyrics and a heavy yet catchy beat. It starts off with every instrument playing one beat then silence and then they get to the into which is actually serj screaming and that breaks into the verse then the chorus kicks in with more great tunes and lyrics after doing that a couple of times the bridge comes in and is a little slower but non the less still Awesome! They hit the chorus once more and there out.
Another great song and has some of my personal favourite lyrics in this song. It starts off with a little guitar intro and gets heavy then serj comes in singing a little then an awesome guitar part comes in for the chorus and then this happens 2 more times then the chorus comes in and is a dark bass controlled riff and is a little creepy then the chorus is played once more and that's the end.
Another great song I love the lyrics of this song more then the actual music but the music is still crazy! The song starts off with everyone and then Daron breaks away with a very original awesome guitar line which is cool. The chorus then comes in which is very heavy and then the bridge comes in with a soft guitar solo and breaks into the chorus for one last time.
A lot of people think that this song is just filler. That's not the case though this a great song with a very catchy music and terrific original lyrics. It starts off with a heavy guitar line and serj singing heavy too. Then the chorus comes in which is almost Italian sounding which is really cool. There's no bridge so the song goes like that for 2:00 and that's it.
This is a great song for any other album, not this one, this song really is a weakness on this album. It's still very good the lyrics are pretty sweet and the music is good but it seems like S.O.A.D spent no time on it. It starts off with guitar and drums and then a little bass comes in. The song breaks into the only beat until it reaches the bridge which is some simple guitar beats and then repeats and the song closes out.
Ahhh this is more like it. This is S.O.A.D right here this was a hit by them and rightfully so. It starts off with some soft guitar and gradully builds up to a heavy intro which is awesome. The lyrics in this song are awesome and the music is great then it breaks into a soft chorus then again it repeats the intro for one last time then the song gets softer until it reaches the bridge which is extremely heavy and then the chorus repeats until the end.
This was my favourite song on the album for a long time and is still up there. This song has some very funny lyrics and has by far the catchiest beat on the whole album. It starts off with the chorus which repeats twice then the verse comes in which is a real pleasure for the ears and then the chorus once more then the bridge which is just some more heavy play nothing new and then the chorus once more then the song ends.
Another terrific song what a surprise. It's very catchy with terrific lyrics! The song starts off with some heavy play and then breaks into a soft little vocal solo. Then the chorus comes in with some heavy play and then the whole thing repeats for a while then the bridge comes in which starts off soft but gains heaviness gradually then back to the chorus for one last time.
This is probably the softest song on the album.
Nonetheless it's awesome it's very catchy. It starts off very soft and breaks into a very heavy chorus which is serj singing and daron doing some back up vocals. Then they repeat the verse again then back to the chorus. Then they play the bridge which is just the verse played faster and with Daron doing a guitar solo then the chorus is repeated 2 more times and the song ends.
This song blows everyone away. Not quite as good as Chop Suey but most love this song. It starts off with some guitar for the intro. Then they break into the verse which is some heavy play and some fabulous lyrics then the heavy chorus comes in and is crazy. Then one more verse then the chorus again then the bridge comes which is some cool effects and just come guitar and come soft drums. Then that leads into the chorus and soon the end of the song.
Heres the weakness on this album. This is just a filler track that they threw in there just for kicks. It starts off with some normal guitar then the bass and drums kick in and they get heavy. The music isn't too bad at all but the lyrics are by far the worst on this album! They get to the chorus which is very typical and boring and they repeat the intro again then the chorus and that's the end.
But not to worry they bounce back with another amazing song! It starts off with some very soft guitar breaks into a very heavy instrumental chorus then they get back to the soft guitar again. Then the chorus but the only difference is that serj is singing now. Then they do another verse which is the soft guitar at the beginning then the chorus once more and then the best part comes in with a sick guitar line and then everyone follows! Then back to the chorus once more then they finish it up by doing the bridge one last time.
A good song it's toward the crummy side but still very good. The lyrics are a little weak though but the music is great. It starts off with a weird bass lick and kicks in with guitar and drums joining the bass. Then serj comes in screaming. The verse comes in which is much softer the chorus repeats itself a couple more times. Followed by the verse once more then for the end its just one longer guitar solo.
They started it off strong why not end it strong! This is a great inspiring song which is stated by very soft guitar broken into a heavier verse which is a lot of fun to listen to. The chorus then comes in which is a little softer but not much then song is then taken over by heavy guitar and the chorus once more. After that they break into a tribal song which is just a lot of weird drums for around 3 minutes.
