Don’t get me wrong, System of a Down are still as hard-hitting and boundary pushing as they are on other albums, but these tracks just don’t smack you in the face as much as others, and it makes the record come off as a “thrown together” jumble of tracks.

Color: Red
FAV TRACKS: Roulette, I-E-A-I-A-I-O, Thetawaves, Chic ‘N’ Stu, Innervision, A.D.D., Highway Song
LEAST FAV: 36, Boom!, F**k the System, Mr. Jack
Steal This Album! concludes my SOAD marathon listening. It is in fact my least favorite of theirs but is still a very strong installment. You can deduce then that SOAD have only produced amazing records which explains why they have such a strong devoted fanbase that lives for the day that they release a new album or even a song, if such a day exists... We’ll all be crossing our fingers (me included obviously).
Although some may say its a weak follow up, I absolutely love it
Their messiest and my least favorite album, but some songs here are my absolute favorites of them.
Favorites: Ego Brain, I-E-A-I-A-I-O, Innervision, Mr. Jack, Nüguns and Streamline.
One might call this a disappointing follow-up to Toxicity, and I can see that. However, even if you consider this a step down from the metal masterpiece that is Toxicity, Steal This Album is still an amazing release. Going down a more progressive/art rock-inspired direction that we'd see Serj Tankian's solo career take part in a few years later, STA has its own identity within the SOAD discography while still fitting in with the zany insanity this band is so well-known for.
