I don't actually think SoaD ever topped their bolt-from-the-blue debut, although critics seem to prefer (the actually quite repetitive) "Toxicity".

Stand out tracks: Spiders, & War?

Arguably the best SOAD album. Definitely their most raw, ambitious and powerfully put together album in their discography.

From Gionzi
Good debut, too heavy for my personal taste. Some songs seem to be similar between them. However, there are some nice songs and the entire album is a fresh explosion of energy

It's unfortunate that there have been so many heavy metal bands throughout the last 20 years, because 95% of them were/are total crap. Because of that factor, I think System of a Down is often overlooked. This is, without question, their best album. But that's not to say their other work isn't just as solid. While a lot of this album is loud, and sometimes a little scream-y, there's deep emotion and thought put into the loudness. They are not just yelling for the sake of being loud. At the same time, it's nice to listen to this album after a bad day because of its loudness. My only complaint about this album is that the two songs that got the most airplay at the time ("Sugar" and "Spiders") are quite lame and boring in comparison to the other songs (in my opinion). If you like this, definitely check out the rest of their catalogue (they only have 5 albums, so it's a pretty easy feat).

I decided to listen to this album to get out of my musical comfort zone. To my surprise the album's extrospective lyrics and obscure layers make this band (obviously) a unique act in the sometimes repetitive world of metal. Whilst still heavy, the album offers many accessible yet intriguing styles that make it a must-hear for most music lovers.

From Bork
The biggest surprise in a long time. After having spent 10 years dismissing this as unlistenable I returned to it and found that this isn't just listenable, it's great stuff and deserving to be included on a list of the top 50 metal albums.
