The best Alternative Metal album of 2005

8.5
When a band releases two albums in the same year, I always have the feeling that they had the material to release one good album, and released two just for business reasons, recording some fillers to reach the required playing time.

Luckily, System Of A Down didn't follow this trend in 2005 when they released, over a period of 6 months, their 4th and 5th albums, Mezmerize and Hypnotize, recording them in the same time frame. Since oddities are surely not new to the Armenian guys, the two album titles are exactly synonyms, and the two album artworks clearly relate to each other. This is, quite obviously, reflected in the music: Hypnotize ends up being a coherent follow-up.

Best.Album.Ever.

It's nice but IMO Toxicity is the best System Of A Down album and Mezmerize is the second.

For me its their best album-every song is so infectious, save for the intro and the last two tracks.

How the hell is this vastly superior to Hypnotize despite the fact that both albums were released in the same year...

Another brilliant album by a brilliant band.

This album is no where near as good as the self-titled or even Toxicity imo. I like Question!, but the rest of the album feels really stale. The self-titled remains my favorite.
