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.

From KeczSnak 11/18/2016 12:31
In my opinion it's way too overrated on this site. The album may catch you with simple, rocking riffs and funny, satirical lyrics (that happen to be sort of cringy from time to time). I'm saying this from perspective of a person who used to love this album when I was 14 and it introduced me to more alternative and heavy sounds. It's not anywere near a masterpiece, although it's a good start. In its genre it's outclassed by LPs like Angel Dust or White Pony so I disagree with this album's rating overall. No hard feelings guys, just an opinion of a former fan

Armenian metal... how rad. Love that influence on this album. I'm not a metal fan, but there's some really cool stuff on here and the commentary with Prison Song is fantastic. But to be honest the only thing really amazing are the three singles. As soon as those come on, it immediately grasps my attention.
