I got my hands on a copy of this a bit early and have been listening to it all weekend. This album is amazing and will not dissapoint, in fact it just might be the most complete album they have released in terms of how the songs flow together. All the songs are great.
After seeing them in concert a couple weeks ago, they are also my favorite band right now. I've never been to a crazier concert.... I was in the front when it started (with B.Y.O.B) and I thought I was going to die. I had to get the fuck out of the front
So I highly recommend to buy it when it comes out Tuesday.
heh, i was lucky enough to see them in concert at ozzfest many years ago, before they were popular. there were literally only about 20-30 people in the crowd. i was probably about 10 feet away from the band.
wow. just wondering, what was so intense that you had to move back a bit?! The noise? The sweat flying offa' them?Originally Posted by benzo
basically within seconds thousands of people are smashed together like sardines and pushed around uncontrollably in rolling sea of chaos that never subsides during the whole concert...... the energy is awesome. I don't know when the cd releases in europe but i think they are touring there soon.Originally Posted by Denart
hot damn gotta look into that. i've always loved them. their last album was a real highlight. so beautifully composed songs,yet so hard and cool.
if ya live in socal and you go get the one in bestbuy by burbank, you get some special thing. i forgot what. but bleh.
SOAD is one of my most fav bands. ever. I love tyheir new song BYOB

11/30/03-11/30/05. Thanks CA, for all the great inspiration. When will I update? I dont know...
damn thats hardcore! ENERGY!!!!Originally Posted by benzo
Ditto. Seeing them on that tour made me a fan. Until I saw them live, I didn't really care for them.Originally Posted by daarken
And yeah, their new one is great.
well,i got it today.
fav.track: violent pornography.i think that's the most original and weirdest and coolest song i've ever heard.
i like all of their albums
i like their last two best,because there's more melody in most of them and they flow together better.though most songs on album nr.1 rule.they just feel too seperated to me.
You guys know that SOAD did a song about Link? Funniest thing ever...
Link! He came to town! Came to Save! The Princess Zelda...
 DRAW EVERYDAY >
hehe,yeah i have that one on my pc.can't listen to it though-it's too weird.
any of you heard some unreleased songs? like "the metro" and that one where they perform with wutang clan.i have them and they're cool aswell.very cool indeed.
This album rocks. Love it.
"It's too bad she won't live! But then again, who does?"
The album totally kicks ass! I like Violent Pornography best off the album, but all the songs are great. I'd love to see them live but haven't had the luck yet Oh well, there's always time
Yeah this album kicks a..
got this album a few days ago and I'm already driving the gf nuts with it.... normally when I listen to a cd and I'm working I have the cd repeat over and over, because once I'm in a groove I don't wanna ruin it by changing the music.
Anyway... great album! My favs being BYOB, This Cocaine Makes Me Feel Like I'm on This Song, Question, Old School Hollywood, Lost in Hollywood..... gah, ok, the whole album fucking rocks.
Yeah, Mezmerize is great. My favorite album of the year so far...it's even a little bit better than The Mars Volta's Frances the Mute. I love the flow in it...and the fact that there's not a wasted second. What surprises me is that this album seems to be pretty popular, even though this is some seriously weird shit.
Even someone at allmusic likes this album

System of a Down has done it again. The band's fourth album, "Mezmerize" (American Recordings/Columbia Records), enters the Billboard/SoundScan chart in the Number One position, as did their CD "Toxicity" when it was released in September, 2001. Since the release of "Mezmerize" last Tuesday, May 17, the CD has scanned an astounding 453,000 copies domestically. "Mezmerize" is the first disc in a 2-disc set with disc two, "Hypnotize," expected out late this fall. "Mezmerize/Hypnotize" was produced by Rick Rubin and System's Daron Malakian.
hey guys long time no see, sorry to disappoint you guys but i think it's ok, i sitll like their older stuff much more.
Do you know the muffinman?

well all a matter of personal taste.
i like most of the songs on their first album very much too,they just don't tie together as well as this one.
though i gotta admit i like "steal this album" still the best. because the songs all flow together nicely,i daresay almost better than this one,and you almost can't listen to any of the songs on their own-they're all one big,creamy unit of hardrock at it's best.
btw someone said he'd consider their music nu-metal.would you say so aswell?
