Staff review by
System of a Down created a huge hype for the nu-metal scene back in 2001 with an album called "Toxicity"; to this day the mentioned album is still a best seller in many stores and we can hear many people talking about the greatness of this album. I bought this album a while ago, I heard it a lot of times I liked it the first few listens, but after a while it bored me big time and then I even sold it to a weird kid with an emoish hairdo.

Absolutely overrated band. I saw them live as Slayer's opening act in 1998, when her debut album came out. Totally boring, it sounds like they never knew what they wanted to be. Metal, pop, rap or opera artist. Their mix of pop, rap and metal, the ever-changing vocal style between clean-melodic, almost operational, jolting rap sounds is exhausting and boring. I never understood why this mediocre band was so hyped up everywhere. Here and there some good moments, but totally chaotic and boring. I tried listening to their albums, but after a few songs I got bored or I was annoyed and forced myself to stop the music. Yes, the style of the band is unique, no one sounds that way, but that's the only thing special about this band. Totally overrated, boring, mediocre band. Sorry to all fans, but that's my opinion. Some of my friends loved the band, I could never share their taste ...

I think they're the only decent band to come out of that late-90's nu-metal era. Not sure how you can label them for being boring. I saw them live once, on the Toxicity tour @ Brixton Academy. It was full of energy and a lot of fun.

I don't what you guys are talking about
every song here is awesome; from crazy (Forest , Prison Song) to melodic (ATWA , Aerials) and Chop Suey and Toxicity are just top notch songs
one of all-time metal masterpieces
Ride a horse that's cleaving through the air and space of dreams.
