System of a Down – Steal This Album
“Steal This Album” by System of a Down is just another doomed escapade in the long and painful parade of musical blunders from modern metal bands. While some of the songs are typical System with abstract musical rhythms and somewhat peculiar choices of lyrical scores, others seem to take their cue from similar metal bands such as Metallica and, in the case of the first track, Queen.
The lyrics are mostly incomprehensible, drug-induced hysterical shouting, while others are so indecipherable they seem thrown together in the last few minutes of a coffee break.
I would not recommend this album to any hard-core heavy-metal fan. Its spotty lyrical and musical arrangements make for a rather arduous and somewhat agonizing experience.
