Rating metrics: Outliers can be removed when calculating a mean average to dampen the effects of ratings outside the normal distribution. This figure is provided as the trimmed mean. A high standard deviation can be legitimate, but can sometimes indicate 'gaming' is occurring. Consider a simplified example* of an item receiving ratings of 100, 50, & 0. The mean average rating would be 50. However, ratings of 55, 50 & 45 could also result in the same average. The second average might be more trusted because there is more consensus around a particular rating (a lower deviation).
(*In practice, some albums can have several thousand ratings)

This album is rated in the top 3% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 78.0/100, a mean average of 76.7/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 78.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.7.

This is the album that set SOAD apart from the others with them finding there unique style. They have a sound unlike anyone else. 'Science' & 'Toxicity' being my standout track picks.
With this followed by 'Hypnotize' & 'Mezmerize' they rightly deserve there place among the Metal elite.

Very powerful stuff in terms of both music and lyrics, not to mention the excellent vocals. Two reason I don't rank this higher: first, I found the melodies in "Mesmerize/Hypnotize" more enjoyable, second, some of the songs here were kind of repetitve and forgetable, they didn't bring anything new to the table. Overall, 70/100.

Once I began to embrace what this band had to offer, I fell right in. This record especially, in large part thanks to the unbelievable flow, terrific production, and gripping performances. The dueling nightmarish vocals, erratic guitar, and often times brutally honest message make this a record that demands attention and deserves it.

I understand this band isn't for everyone, but my love for this record, this band, and what this record represents in rooted deep inside me.

I've listened to these songs from this album so many times and it is with great honour that I say this is the best album I have listened to (within the last few months or so). There isn't a song I dislike from this album because from start to finish, it is fantastic (I never get tired of listening to Chop Suey, Toxicity, Aerials, etc). I mean, who doesn't like this album? no one! This is just beyond brilliant, I do also enjoy System of a Down's earlier and later albums as well but this? This is just amazing.

100/100 for me.

Wow! Very glad I decided to listen to this one. Wasn't sure what to expect and then I was hit with a fantastic and refreshing piece related to my favorite genre metal. The creativity here was overflowing and the lyrics were political but there was the tone of the tracks that made things not seem so serious. Hard to explain but amazing to listen to. I've never heard anything like it.

System of a Down released the best political album of the 2000s (Sorry Green Day) and my favorite political album of all time. It is also my favorite metal album of all time, even though it is only technically alternative metal. Let me enjoy it. Toxicity is an album about the political situation in LA, in America, and throughout the world. It has a global message that impacts everyone. It was one of 3 albums I took with me on a trip to Cambodia. I didn't know much about the political content at the time, but after listening to it I realized how relevant the political themes were to the nation I was in. Not only does System of a Down identify the problems they see, they provide solutions to the cause of our downfalls. It is so common to see people critiquing our world, but it is rare to find people who will give solutions, stick to them, and work to make them a reality. With Toxicity, System of a Down achieved just that, and that is why I love this album. It has a very strong message that is applicable at varying degrees to any part of the world. It is also creatively a masterpiece as it fuses elements of many genres to create an incredibly unique sound. System of a Down showed their fantastic innovation, and their Armenian roots play a strong influence as well, which adds to their identity and shows the importance of roots and culture. As Serj Tankian sings in "Aerials", 'Life is a waterfall', and even when we feel as though we are falling between two rivers, there is always a solution if the people of the world will rise up to defend and protect our planet and our nations.
