Four CD's and nearly ten years into their career, System of a Down continue to be the Gilbert and Sullivan of this generation, delivering razor-sharp political commentary via beautiful, quirky melodies and discordant harmonies.
The group has mastered the ability to be both successful and subversive--with 2001's Toxicity selling over six million copies and debuting at number one on the Billboard charts, their success in indisputable. As far are their subversive-ness, the lyrical content on Mezmerize is a solid stream of anti-war, anti-corporate and anti-celebrity sentiment. The disc's first single proves as beautifully schizophrenic as anything the band has released. "B.Y.O.B." opens with guitarist Daron Malakian's rapid-fire riff, then frontman Serj Tankian's anti-war screams of "Why do they always send the poor?"; less than a minute later, a nearly-surreal jump to a facetiously perky, beach party chorus that could easily be found on a Britney or Justin record: "Everybody's going to the party/have a real good time." Guitarist/co-songwriter Malakian takes increased vocal time on the disc, including the hilarious, size-obsessed "Cigaro" and celeb-slapping "Radio/Video". Witticism aside, musical and lyrical intensity peaks with the operatic "Question!" and the emotional piledriver that is "Sad Statue", the group¹s unflinching statement on war and Lady Liberty.
The only shortcoming of Mezmerize is, quite simply, that it is short. Clocking in at a mere 38 minutes, the reason given is that this release is one-half of a two CD set--with part 2, Hypnotize, expected in late fall 2005. --Denise Sheppard

Customer Review of Mezmerize
When it comes to bands being fast and or heavy, I like bands to be both. This album isnt that heavy, but it's very fast. I like it alot. It's unique, funny, and it's an album that all fans will probobly enjoy.
They try, but fail...and no system can help them now
Sad state of "rock" today, I mean when I read that this band is actually trying to bring back 70's type "art" rock with their format, I want to hurl. If you want that, then listen to Yes or Blue Oyster Cult or what have you. Don't grab an album from hacks that cannot play who are trying to rehash an old formula. The result is a lot of uninspiring garbage. Poor vocals yelling the typical anti-war slogans, I mean that is great if they were the first but Pearl Jam, Ministry and KMFDM have been doing it for years now. Suddenly we are supposed to find meaning coming from a Darren/Darin/ who spells it D-a-r-r-o-n? Worst songs are Revenga and Cigaro but none of them get as high as three stars in my book. Needless screaming, pointless yelling and guitar chords that slam and chug with no direction. So yeah, I would suggest check out some other bands before jumping on this bandwagon, which has already hitched onto the coattails of about every idea that has come along in the past 30 years. Uneventful, moderate at best, but for the most part just not music. Show some meaning in the lyrics, or some intelligent playing. I know garage bands that have more purpose, but hey these guys got signed so now everyone is assuming it's what's for dinner.
i've been listening to this album (and hypnotize) since they came out, and am convinced they are one of the best bands out there. there are some people that only like their first two albums, and don't like these. fair enough, everyone has different tastes. to the people who don't like the political content, you shouldn't be writing a review, because you probably don't understand it. there isn't a whole lot of great music out there right now, but if you like awesome harmonies and good hard rock, get this. if not, don't. what do i care?
