My favourite is the self-titled one!

I hate all of them. :)

And Steal This Album! isnít an actual album; itís left-over demos and whatnot (at least from what Iíve read) from their first two albums. They (just like LP with Reanimation) can care less about how successful it is.

Toxicity rules, i love Toxicity, Aerials, Chop Suey and Jet Pilot the most.

I love all the albums... they all have their own type of feel that SOAD always has :P.

Toxicity to me was like, kinda' more mature, and then it got crazy again in "Steal This Album". Even though they're all leftover type tracks, it still rules to bang your head to ;).

To all of those who said Toxicity, have you even heard the self-titled one?? If you haven't, you're missing out completely. SOAD are crappy now. I have the advance of their new album (supposedly) and it's just as repetitive as Toxicity. The first album is the best, a lot darker, a lot crazier, a lot more SOAD. Chop Suey and Aerials are great, but the rest is probably just crap. Steal This Album is so crappy, my goodness.

Hmm. I love the first two albums. :wth: I guess I'll go with Toxicity.

I agree with From The Inside partially. Their debut was the best but Toxicity was still great. Steal This Album! is actually almost as good as Toxicity in my opinion. I love their quirky style. You can't get any better than Sugar, Spiders, Soil, War?, and Peephole! They kill Chop Suey any day (Chop Suey is still amazing but can't compare!)!

You have the new album, FTI?? What is it called? How did you get it? I'm VERY skeptical...

System of A Down is actually a better band than LP, IMO (and I can back my point if I get flamed). Try to recognize the originality and beauty of SOAD. Liking LP, I can't understand why you would hate System. And thats a pretty arrogant remark, on your behalf. Steal This Album is b-sides from Toxicity and their debut, and it just gives their fans more GREAT music. And it has new songs, which makes it an album, and more of an album than Reanimation even! Many songs on there are better than some on Toxicity (Chic'N'Stu, Boom!, I-E-A-I-A-I-O, Streamline; and Roulette, an acoustic masterpiece! Some weak points on Toxicity where Jet Pilot, ATWA, X, and Bounce.)

Have you made an effort at all to get into them?

But the thing is, that's an opinion.

And so is saying Linkin Park are better than SOAD.

And you have every right to your opinion, Bryan.

I was responding more to Will saying that STA&#33; wasn&#39;t an album... I&#39;ll rephrase my response.

And so do you.

But saying you have facts to back up the fact that SOAD is better than LP is impossible seeing as it would still be an opinion.

I don&#39;t have facts, I have OPINIONS on why SOAD is a better band, meaning providing my VIEWS on why I think they are better.

I simply despise System Of A Down. That&#39;s my opinion. If you can&#39;t live with that then you don&#39;t deserve to have your own opinion on why you think they&#39;re better than Linkin Park. :)

To whoever it was that was curious about me having the so-called new album, it has no title. I actually found this last summer, and I think a few songs have made it to Steal This Album. You tell me, I don&#39;t own it.

System of a Down - Everytime
System of a Down - Streamline
System of a Down - Virginity
System of a Down - Waiting for You (Version 1)
System of a Down - We Dont Give a
System of a Down - Side of the Freeway
System of a Down - On My Mind
System of a Down - Want Me to Try
System of a Down - Why
System of a Down - Power Struggle
System of a Down - Therapy
System of a Down - Outer Space
System of a Down - Your Own Pace
System of a Down - Defy You
System of a Down - Waiting for You (Version 2)

I&#39;m not crying over it, but think of how you&#39;d feel if someone said LP sucked. You would try to convince them otherwise... And yes I think I can have an opinion on that, although you may not to agree with me&#33; ^_^

Sorry if I was offensive or anything.

But I AM very shocked at the amount of negative reaction over System of A Down, and how many people don&#39;t like their self-titled as much&#33;

*****************************

FTI: Power Struggle is Bubbles on STA&#33;, Streamline&#39;s on STA (on Scorpion King Soundtrack and its great), and Side of The Freeway ([In the Car] as the next part of the lyrics would be Mr. Jack off STA&#33;).

I&#39;ve seen Virginity too, I think its a demo, but I don&#39;t know about the rest. They are working on a new album though. Let&#39;s hope its as complex as Toxicity and as quirky as Steal This Album&#33;.

Way to go on deleting yourself out.

Side of The Freeway is the only song I like on that untitled advance copy I have. So it&#39;s on Steal This Album? I guess I like ONE song on the new SOAD album. ;)

Everyone likes Toxicity better just because it gained more commercial success. The Self-titiled is better

I agree with you there. Toxicity is NOTHING compared to the self-titled. I think they did a complete change from album 1 to album 2. I wish they hadn&#39;t changed, because I don&#39;t like them anymore.

Toxicty is a good metal cd, a bit above average, with some great songs like Chop Suey, Toxicity and The Prison Song....But SOAD can do WAY better&#33; I mean, how the debut blows Toxicity out of the water with songs like Know (awesome lyrics, &#39;Cursed Earth&#33;&#39;), Sugar (jazz-like verses with fast-talking), Spiders (slow track, Serj&#39;s awesome), Soil (&#39;Don&#39;t you, realize, that evil lives in the motherf***in skin&#33;), War? (my favourite&#33; &#39;We will fight the heathens&#33;&#39;), Peephole (amazing guitar solo&#33;), Darts (&#39;Arise as did the gods ninti&#33; And Ishkur, Ishkur mothaf***a&#33;&#39;), and PLUCK (talking about genocide, a really catchy tune &#39;revolution/the only solution/the armed response of an entire nation&#39;)

The standout tracks that are better than anything Toxicity has to offer except the three above and maybe Aerials.

Hopefully you enjoyed my mini-&#39;review&#39; of the self-titled.
*****************************************

FTI, it says you have Streamline on the list too. You don&#39;t like that track?
The one on the Scorpion King soundtrack? I love it. &#39;I wasn&#39;t there for you&#39; is a snippet of the lyrics.Better than Mr. Jack (Side of the Freeway) in my opinion.

&#39;we don&#39;t give a&#39; may also be A.D.D. on Steal This Album.
IF it goes &#39;We don&#39;t give a **** about your world with all your...&#39;

&#39;Everytime&#39; may be &#39;Boom&#33;&#39; on Steal this Album. If it goes &#39;Everytime you drop the bomb you kill the god your child has born&#39;

Therapy may be &#39;Chic&#39;N&#39;Stu&#39; as well. It goes &#39;Therapy, Therapy, advertisements causing me, therapy, therapy...&#39;

And I haven&#39;t heard all the STA songs so, you may have some or all of the songs on that album...

Yup, "Everytime" is "Boom." Sorry, like I said: Side of the Freeway is the only one I like on that untitled release.
