Album Review

In most cases, bands put out these odds and sods collections for die-hard fans, to fulfill a record deal, or to stall while they're taking seven years to record a follow-up. Steal This Album!, on the other hand, definitely doesnot fit any of those ideals. First, it's almost impossible to think of this as an "outtakes" record. System of a Down has managed to make tracks from a seven-year period sound cohesive without having to embellish or sacrifice. Some might argue that maybe they're just treading water. Not true. If System proved anything with 2001's Toxicity, it's that they're one of the few breaths of fresh air out there in mainstream metal land. This collection is no different, and with its amazing pacing, it's hard to not be moved by what this band can do. Secondly, Steal This Album! has everything that a "normal" album release would have; it's heavy without being a burden, political without being condescending, and in some cases, downright beautiful. It's been mentioned that this is the link to what they've done and what they're moving towards. If that turns out to be true, the next one should be a monster.

Customer Reviews

Steal This Album!

I love System Of A Down's music. Their singers (Serj Tankian) incredible voice and their guitarists (Daron Malakian) great skill with a guitar create incredibly popular songs. My particular favourites are A.D.D (American Dream Denial), Nuguns I-E-A-I-A-I-O and Inner Vision. I would seriously recommend this album to anyone who likes System Of A Down.

great

This album is underated. When people listen to system for the first time, usually it's chop suey or cigaro, the real cliche system songs that are good but surely everyone must have heard them by now. Lets say that perhaps if my first exposure to system had not been chop suey and instead had been Streamline or Ego Brain then i would love them forever. Instead i can't listen to them without the wemos in the year below me raving about how funny cigaro and how AMAZING chop suey is. In my opinion, this is their second best album. Pureley beucase Toxicity was a breakthrough from what they had previously done. In 1997 they were good. But in 2001 with Toxicity their success really exploded across the world. So when they came out with this, i have only good things to say about it. Streamline is eerie and Ego brain is beautiful and Pictures is the brand of kooky tomfoolerey you can only find with this band. So if you like Toxicity BUY THIS

system are awsome !

every song is so different, NOT easy on the ears , but makes it all the more fun to listen to, completly addicted to system!

Biography

Formed: 1995 in Los Angeles, CA

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Like many late-'90s metal bands, System of a Down struck a balance between '80s underground thrash metal and metallic early-'90s alternative rockers like Jane's Addiction. Their dark, neo-gothic alternative metal earned a cult following in the wake of the popularity of such like-minded bands as Korn and the Deftones. Vocalist Serj Tankian, guitarist Daron Malakian, bassist Shavo Odadjian, and drummer John Dolmayan formed System of a Down in Southern California in the mid-'90s. They quickly earned...
