I think it's "we don't live in a fascist nation"
but I agree "blast off, it's party time" is cheestastic.

Sysytem of a Down is cool and all, but if you really like that style of singing you should check out Mike Patton when he was in Faith No More (not shit like Epic) but the more strange stuff, whatever SOAD tries to accomplish vocally pales in comparison. Mike Patton was doing that shit in 1992, in that respect it is a little derivative, but they play much more raw music than FNM did, FNM is one of the most talented rock acts ever but SOAD probably rocks harder.

That said, I have all 3 albums and think they are all pretty cool.
The last two are better than the first, and I don't own the 'Steal This Album' which is really b-sides and shit, but it does have Innervision which might be my favorite song by them.

I am much more of a "Beatles"-esque guy lately, but some of my roots are in metal so I can appreciate this stuff still.

Okay, so to finish my previous post ...

I did listen to Radio/Video and Question ... and thought they were pretty good !!

Actually, there were only a couple of songs I don't particularly like ...
but overall it's NOT a bad album !!

I'll have to check-out the sequel Hypnotize when that album comes out later this year !!

And on Mezmerize ... I believe it was Radio/Video ...

So overall, which is the better album ??

Please don't tell me "it's a tie" or "both" ...

i bought mesmerize just because i though BYOB was completely awesome. after one listen i felt a little . i need to give it a few more listens to really see if i like it or not. regardless, they are definitely a talented band.

Yes! Great album!! Looking forward to Hypnotize.

I agree that the lyrics to Cigaro can put people off, but I interpret the point is to describe the 'bigger dick' foreign policy theory. George Carlin does a funny piece on that theory on one of his old records.

I just went out and bought this album earlier this week ...

starting to "get a feel" for some of their music ... overall, it's a pretty GOOD album !!

It must be ... considering it's back in the No. 2 spot on Billboard's
Top 40 Album Chart this week !!

Which is the better album ... Toxicity or Mezmerize ??
I'm looking for some opinions here as I just purchased Mezmerize,
but haven't heard anything from Toxicity and want to know if it's
worth checking out that album too ...

I think you'd like it. They're both similar yet different enough from each other that they'll keep your interest and completely enterain you.
