Sky Is Over
Yes Serj has a distinctive voice. Yes he is a talented chap. Sadly this lacks the depth of any of the System of a Down releases. As they say, you're only as good as your last war. Even the la-la-la sections fail to distract the ear from realising that this is a plodding, pointless affair that exhibits a positive correlation curve between repeated listens and annoyance. Plus he's smoking on the cover. Come on Serj - you might have founded a political activist organisation but you surely need to be aware of the social implications of foisting corporate tobacco addiction on the world's youth whilst ignoring the ecological impact of intensively farmed tobacco. Sorry - you started me off with your clumsy slogans on your record sleeves and your bad music.
