System Of A Down, Steal This Album

Written on: 14/06/2003 by nu-metal must bow. (1 review written)

Good Points
excellent variation. Serj tankian.
Daron malakian. Shavo odojan. Jon dolmoyan.
good for anger release (in my case)

Bad Points
doesnt quite live up to 'toxicity'

General Comments
S.O.A.D,s first album (system of a down) was thrash metal with an insane twist,and their second album (toxicity)was arguably the best album of 2000/01.

when i bought their latest offering (steal this album), i worried about if they could live up to resounding sucess of toxicity.i was very suprised.....

the highlights of this album (in my opinion) are

"CHIC'N'STU" (two minutes of sheer lunacy.WONDERFUL!),

"BOOM!" (the political message is frightening)

"MR.JACK" (two sides of the band in one)

"F**K THE SYSTEM:(has absolutely no meaning, but is classic!)

"STREAMLINE" (a raw show of human emotion from serj)

and "ROULLETTE". (a totally different side of the band.a slow steady track that somehow makes you like it.)



the only problem is that there are a couple of non starters. tracks like "nu-guns" and "36 are prime examples.but otherwise, this is classic s.o.a.d.tracks like "THETAWAVES",and "AMERICAN DREAM DISORDER" restore credability.

serj's bendy vocals once again give a unique sound, but it doesnt beat toxicity.



overall, a good return from serj and his band of merry freaks,but if you ask people who s.o.a.d are, they will still probably say " oh....there them who did chop suey arent they?"



but still.......NU-METAL MUST BOW!.
