I think it may just be me but I swear there's a certain atmosphere to this album that I don't feel on their other stuff. Maybe its just uber nostalgia.

"I think it may just be me but I swear there's a certain atmosphere to this album that I don't feel on their other stuff. Maybe its just uber nostalgia."

I found the recording/production quality of this record>all other SOAD albums. The guitar has a perfect tone, high level of presence without overloaded bass and amazing horizontal sound stage. Serj's voice seems very clear and possibly leveled higher that normal above the rest of the music. Bass also has a perfect level and tone. The songs are just so well written too. The thing that took away from the atmosphere in the first album for me was the guitar setting (bassy and low quality recording).

That's definitely nostalgia. I get that on pretty much every SOAD album.

Great album but not quite as good as the self titled for me but close. Aren't these guys about due for another album?

Yes they are, but it's been more than a year since they said that.

chop suey! and the title track are fantastic songs. Don't massively care for the rest, but the album as a whole hangs together pretty well.

SOAD's one the first bands I ever really got into. This album is one of my personal favorites.

I hate the lyrics to Science. They make it seem like science is wrong and pointless because we should trust the Bible anyway. Nice try, brah.

this album helped get me into heavier music so it has sentimental value. and i felt like such a bad ass listening to it when my parents didn't want me too, lol
