I just got into this album a few months ago, and I'm sorry it took me so long. This band is a clear demonstration of just how tight a band can be. The changes are intense. High poins are Psycho, Forest and Chop Suey!

For any fans of this genre, I 'highly' recommend this album. My favs would be 'Science', 'Toxicity' & 'Prison Song'. This album is not only entertaining, but flows from start to finish. This album just about touches everything (musically), ie. 'Punk', 'Heavy Metal', 'Hard Core', etc. and even a 'jig' thrown in for good measure.

This album is great in every direction. It has a lot of power and energy to it, which shows passion and seriousness unlike most mass rock giants. They also have a sort of message, from science being the fall of spirituality, to anti-political issues. This album also deals with suicide, isolation, and just about anything inbetween from a tapeworm to a forest of denials. This album has it all. It has a lot of flavors from different cultures, mostly in the vocals and in the later tracks the entire songs turns into this kind of Eastern-like style.The music of every track expands and is focused, never letting go of the listener. System of a Down certainly has a gift, and I hope we can hear from them in the future.

1. Prison Song 2. Needles 3. Deer Dance 4. Jet Pilot 5. X 6. Chop Suey! 7. Bounce 8. Forest 9. ATWA 10. Science 11. Shimmy 12. Toxicity 13. Psycho 14. Aerials
