if you all want soad to sound the same like always, then you get another version of linkin park, 3 cd's all the same sh**. they make the sound cause they like it, its what keeps their originality that actracted everyone int the first place. if you dont the way they sound, stop listening to them and find another band. but dont critisize them when they are the ones who make the music, not you.

their first album was extremely raw and dark .... very similar to korn's first album .... of course each in its own way but SOAD and korn have become progressively less dark and raw ..... each with a different style but both fading away from what got them there ...... dark music

ahh....insomnia.......how i thought i left you behind in college.

Soads first album....like many great first albums, captured them while they were still hopeful and hungry......That energy tends to begin its fade on the second and third records.....even if commercial success passes a band by.....

Soad sound "better" in the sense of tweeking their nuances, but they've left behind that "mud and rust" sound of that first album.....which is what made is great......one could easily argue their best record.

They want staying power now....The goal isn't to grab your attention, now that they are as recognized as korn at their peak....the goal is to keep your attention........

BYOB does that i think........It's differnt but very much soad, their not sacrificing their wierdness one bit, the message is still political, strange, emotional, silly or all of the above....

Furthermore their still being bold.....time changes ahoy, adding more of Malakian to the vocal mix...........ill admit i liked his harmonies on 'Toxicity' and his backround squeeks and yips on their debut were priceless....He's really making Malakian of a Down to be honest.....but it still sounds compelling to me....i'll reserve the comments good or great for when i've heard the songs a bit more....as i shun the sh** out of radio.....

as i generally say with something we can't know for sure about........

we'll see.

I think that anyone who seriously considers not being a system fan anymore for what they write now, was never a real system fan to begin with. A real fan changes as the band does, because a fan is someone who loves what they do, not what they were 5 years ago. System is growing up, and maybe you should try and realize that everyone does, and respect that they still stay completely original to what they are. Not just this, but goddamn they've gotten infinitely better than their previous efforts. John learned to use double bass for real, and darron and chavo's chops are tighter and stronger than ever. Their writing and creativity is still seamless. Come on guys, grow up. Just because they were the band you listened to when you were a p***ed off high school kid with acne who hated your parents doesn't mean they're a "dark" band. They had a rougher phase with their first album, but they were never what they're being made out to be.

Personally, I think the 2 new singles are phenomenal. They are still system, but with experience and talent that far surpasses their old stuff. BYOB amps me up the same way toxicity and sugar did, and I can't wait to hear the rest of the stuff. I'm more for a system fan then ever.

And DEADMETAL, it IS a huge step forward. De-wax your ears and you might hear it.

I'm glad that you like the new stuff ... i don't .... who cares? we all post OPINIONS and its all good ... soI DON'T LIKE THEM? i'm gonna tell you and feel free to drop your unrelenting opinion back

Dead, i see what you're saying, and you may have been a system fan, but when I think of a fan I'm thinking FAN. Like System would have to recruit Bonnie Raitt and have daron play a banjo for the person I'm talking about to lose his zeal. But that's a little extreme I guess. It would take me alot to lose it for system, they just started too original for me to really see them any different. Like I said, I think they just got much better at what they do. And also, when you say dark, bands like NIN and coal chamber come to mind. That's DARK. System always had the quirky silliness to it. Cigaro to me seems like a perfect blend of their rebellious and crazy roots with their improved creativity. I will agree in saying that they have refined their sound since their self-titled, but that's just what it is. Refined. I bet they will have plenty of darker sounding stuff for you guys on the new discs too.

Havent been on for a while and when I got back I came to read the words of Brokenwings13 and Zero, two punk a$$ fag f***s with no taste in music, Bad mouthing my favorite band and the band that converted me to metal, System of a down, I think that bastards like that should get the hell out of here and go to some emo fan site. And Id like to say that DeadMetal needs shut his f***in mouth along with any one else with anything negative to say about system. SOADToxicity2 Rock on Brother

Im sorry Zero I guess I did make a mistake, YOU werent badmouthing system you were bad mouthing me "People like True metal shouldnt be allowed on this site.", "true metal, how would they have an opinion unless they see the video you moronic bastard." I dont think that you should worship System But If you have something bad to say dont go an let loose in the middle of a System of a Down Forum

Stop fighting. You guys sound like seriously uneducated and closed-minded high-schoolers. The album is different, the music is different, and System has changed. But I can you they are NOT softcore, or gay. They're real musicians now. Unfortunately real musicianship really does float above some people's limited tastes and is scoffed. But man this "discussion" sounds like a football locker room argument. Laughable.
(The album is a little too short.)

A little TOO SHORT? ... its WAY too short to be part of a 2 disc set .... 10 tracks! ... all short ... they could've just put the 2 discs together and maybe it would equal one good album ...

At the end of the day the new album is lyrically inferior, it relies on metaphors and a lot of people won't pick up on that for whatever reason, there are no killer lines as we saw on the Self-Titled album etc. But, I will say this, I was not at all keen on the album when I first heard it. In fact, I was p***ed off that I seemed to have outgrown SOAD. But I did what a real musicfan would do, and gie it time. I'm not talking lock yourself in a room with it on repeat or anything, but don't be a dumbass and claim you had it figured out in one listen. This album is a grower, lacking the instant hook of the previous albums.

And oh yeah I guess I'm a softcore emo fag for saying that. I'll remember that when I go to Download and then see SOAD again for the 4th time.

I liked the song, plain as that :3 SOAD have always had a way of performing their songs that I've found amusing.

The album is only 10 tracks because they have another one comeing out in November. Stop complaining about it. The album and that song were great you just have to sit down and really listen, it's an album that makes you think about the metaphors. What's wrong with an album that makes you think?...nothing! If you don't like it that's fine but don't come on here b****ing and complaining about it. System of a Down kicks a$$ and always will, you don't like it then get off the site, stop starting with people, and go play with yourselves.

Dead, if you really think, after one listen, you know for a fact that Mesmerize sucks d***, I won't argue with that. What I wanna see is a blow by blow account of why you think each song on that album sucks, and hey, you said yourself it's a short album, so it can't take that long.

Metal does not have to melt your face to be good.
