System of a Down

  • Toxicity [American, 2001] *
  • Mezmerize [American/Columbia, 2005] *

Consumer Guide Reviews:

Toxicity [American, 2001]
overarrangements no prob for we who avoid art-rock like the plague this means to cure ("Prison Song," "Bounce") *

Mezmerize [American/Columbia, 2005]
Firm in their convictions and (relatively) simple in their art rock ("B.Y.O.B.," "Radio/Video"). *
