I was kinda disapointed by this CD. I didn't know some of the songs would mostly have piano in them, but soem of the songs were really good like starlit eyes, unthinking majority, and empty walls. I'am also counting on Scars of broadway to come out with their first album, which concists of 2 System of a down members. I hope they dont let me down.

I'm getting sick of all these singers leaving the band to go solo. What jerks! You think you're better than all the other members, Serj? Huh? Huh? HUH??

I like Serj and all, this album is awesome, but he needs to go back to System of a down. They are so much better than any of his solo stuff can hope to live up to.

Solo albums NEVER live up to band albums. The only person I think it's ever worked for was Justin Timberlake....what a loser.

This CD is awesome! Better than system I think. You guys gotta understand this is his music. Not some band this is his creation in his eyes.

This is not System and why would you even compare the 2?

I give mad props for the creation of this cd as he played all of the instruments and vocals for most of the songs. Pure Talent.

IMO if you dont like the cd then you obviously dont appreciate what went into this cd.

Just my 2 cents.

All the members of SOAD are involved in projects outside the band. If you were a true fan (which you are not) you would support Serj's incredible new album. Do some homework before you get on hear and talk trash and make false accusations.

The new album rocks all his songs are catchy and they may not be as heavy as SOAD but it's still f**cking amazing!

Keep up the great support for Serj's new album and i'll go out on a limb and say this album is as good as any System album since 02's "Steal this album". He is currently touring with the Foo Fighters to support the new album and getting very positive reviews.

the album is awesome, and true SOAD fans would know they went on a temorary hiatus, they didnt break up they even said that they didnt. They played ozzfest and then went on hiatus, they have other projects going, but they are still working on things as a band, nothing is going to be released though for awhile. They are still friends in a bad a** band.

YouAreRetarded, what a fitting name for you. N'Sync said they were taking a break too, didn't they, kupo? And yet, I haven't heard any rumors about a new album from THEM. Serj thinks he can go solo, he thinks people only listen to System of a Down because of his voice.(He's probably right, in most cases.) So, YouAreRetarded, I have this to say....:p

Have you ever heard of a guy named OZZIE OSBOURNE? Yeah, he had an evenly outstanding solo career along with his Sabbath stuff.

I loved this CD. Serj still kicks ass even though this is quite different from his System stuff. He is expressing his own emotions and his mind for this, not him along with other band members. The best song is either LIE, LIE, LIE or Sky Is Over. Is it different from System? yes. Is it almost as good? definately
