System of a Down - "Mezmerize"

System of a Down - Mezmerize
2005, Sony

1. Soldier Side (Intro)
2. B.Y.O.B.
3. Revenga
4. Cigaro
5. Radio/Video
6. This Cocaine Makes Me Feel Like I'm On This Song
7. Violent Pornography
8. Question!
9. Sad Statue
10. Old School Hollywood
11. Lost in Hollywood

Gotta admit... these guys know how to get your attention. "B.Y.O.B." was an immediate success and I have to admit that I liked the mix of frantic nu-metal and lite reggae in the chorus. My friends were all annoyed by that song until they heard the "la-la-la-la-la Oooooh!" part - then they loved it. That's my friends for you. This disc is a lot more melodic than the previous ones and the guitarist takes over a lot more vocals than before. Though when they sing together its almost beautiful... almost.

Useless Fact: One of the band member's fathers designed the cover art but I can't remember who.
