  Toxicity Summary
Toxicity can refer to the effect on a whole organism, such as a human or a bacterium or a plant, or to a substructure, such as the liver.
Biological toxicity can be more complicated to measure, as the "threshold dose" may be a single organism, as theoretically this one virus, bacterium or worm can reproduce to cause a serious infection.
Physically toxic entities include things not usually thought of as such by the lay person: direct blows, concussion, sound and vibration, heat and cold, non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation such as infrared and visible light, ionizing non-particulate radiation such as X-rays and gamma rays, and particulate radiation such as alpha rays, beta rays, and cosmic rays.

It's hard to decide whether Toxicity or Steal This album are the better of SOAD albums, but I have to ere on the side of Toxicity.
Toxicity is just one of those albums that can not only rattle through several styles of music, but fuse them in single songs well.
If I had to make any criticism about this album, it would be that the songs Jet Pilot and X are too repetetive and can bore, even annoy you at times, but the strength of the rest of the album more than makes up for it.

With this album, System have firmly established themselves as one of the latter bands, destined to have their sound influence and subsequently be regurgitated by many bands to follow.
On the other hand, the drum work practically oozes energy, taking shape with crisp defined hits and rapid fire snare work that is creatively crafted, using off timed structures that are fiercely intimidating, yet immensely integral to the often hectic pace of which the group lean towards.
As such, with the now occasional subtle touch of everything from ethnic stringed instruments to tribal drumming and chanting, the groups sound is strengthened tenfold, allowing it to catapult to new heights while taking on shades of a somewhat prog rock meets psychedelic flair.

Toxicity was #1 in America on the week of the September 11, 2001 attacks and the political environment caused by the attacks added to the controversy surrounding their hit single "Chop Suey!".

 Music Reviews: System of a Down - The Shadow Sun
System of a Down's self-titled debut album is clearly nothing like their later work, and is always a surprise to listeners like myself who started with the band's later albums.
The album as a whole is actually more coherent than the last; the music sounds more organized and structured, the singing is easier on the ears, and the lyrics (for the most part) are more meaningful.
Released just over a year after Toxicity, this album is very similar in style and considered by many to be a collection of leftovers that didn't make it onto the band's previous release.

Consequently, early believers were pleasantly surprised when 2001's long awaited follow-up, Toxicity met with instant popular acceptance, skyrocketing up the charts toward multi-platinum success.
Like its predecessor, Toxicity seems utterly chaotic upon first listen, but things quickly begin falling into place, thanks to a number of small refinements, not least of which is a more generous melody, obviously pre-meditated, but rarely overdone.
Hands down one of 2001's top metal releases, Toxicity may well prove to be a lasting heavy metal classic to boot.

Sure enough, so challenging and groundbreaking were its contents that the album soared over most everyone's unsuspecting heads, its eventual gold sales status only achieved via Columbia Records' massive promotional muscle and nearly three years of intensive touring on the band's part.

The musicianship of "Toxicity" is leagues ahead of their debut; therein lies the band's inevitable success and trademark sound to call their own, just as bands such as Tool and Korn have done in previous years.
The album would not be the masterpiece that it is if it wasn't for subtleties such as audacious backing vocals, citars, cellos, violins, and a wide assortment of percussion.
If you give System Of A Down's album "Toxicity" time to grow on you, I guarantee that what you discover will be the year best metal album, and a musical 'sound' for the ages.

While the album is more consistent than Toxicity, many of the songs seem to blend in with each other, and overall, the listening factor of the album isn't as high as previous efforts.
The drums aren't as overproduced as they were on Toxicity, and they don't stand out as much on this album, but they have a much better tone to them.
Another one of my favorites on this album is "Radio/Video." It is one of the more dynamic songs on the album, as it has as much loud and driving parts to it as it has quiet, soothing parts to it.

The album also has the dubious distinction of being the #1 album in America on the week of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
Their third album, containing songs from the Toxicity recording session, was released as "Steal This Album!" because early recordings of most of the songs had leaked out onto the Internet.
The album does feature some less memorable tracks such as the all too deliberate “She's Like Heroin” and the lyrically shallow “Lonely Day.” And in some places, although to a lesser extent than on Mezmerize, Malakian’s vocals are too high-pitched and lack the presence necessary to complement System’s robust and complex sound.

Their sophomore effort, Toxicity, was widely hailed as one of the best albums of 2001.
Toxicity, hailed by SPIN as "the sound of now" and Rolling Stone as "a bouquet of smart rock and ardent social argument," was a wake-up call to the world of hard rock, not to mention the world in general.
And as a testament to the band’s prolific creativity, an entire third full-length was released in 2002 entitled Steal This Album, composed entirely of songs from the Toxicity sessions (where the band produced 33 songs in total).

Toxicity is the group's answer to the burning question that has enveloped this country as of late: What the fuck is going on here?
From the opening tonnage of "Prison Song", a direct hit on the corporatism of the American penal institution, straight through to the album's final track, "Psycho", an ode to cocaine-sniffing groupies, SOAD have presented a stark vision of society today.
System's Toxicity will be greatly appreciated by those who favor creativity and flavor.

 SYSTEM OF A DOWN Toxicity CD REVIEW
Your whole career builds to that first release, you sometimes spend years honing those songs, and then after the initial success (if you're lucky, of course), you're expected to repeat the whole thing, usually in a fraction of the amount of time it took to get to the first one.
In the case of SYSTEM OF A DOWN, not only was their debut album a success (scanning nearly 800,000 copies in the US alone), but the band emerged as frontrunners on the nu-metal scene, thanks to their highly iconoclastic sound (blending everything from thrash to New Wave to Eastern European influences) and politically-charged lyrics.
But SYSTEM took a long time to write and record their second album, Toxicity, and the results are nothing less than stupendous.

As in Toxicity, the heaviness, and in some cases, emotion, of the self-titled is missing.
Overall, this is a great album; Toxicity fans will love it, and while "old-school" System of a Down fans may be disappointed, they will still have to admit that it is more great music by System of a Down.
Toxicity has better songs from top to bottom and seems to have a better flow to it than Steal This Album!.

 System Of A Down: Toxicity (2001): Reviews
Toxicity is virtually unlistenable: thrash metal splintered into a million pieces by unnecessary time changes, topped off with excruciatingly theatrical vocals.
The album flows excellently; nearly perfect from beginning to end, it never sounds repetitive, old, stale, boring, or bad.
This is the album that first brought me to the band...

The new album, Toxicity, is bound to fulfill the expectations laid upon it.
One solid addition on this album is the broad use of background vocals, both singing and a guttural roar that makes the album slap you a little bit harder.
It will be an even more anxious wait for their next album, but Toxicity offers enough new tricks and enough fun noise to keep anyone occupied in the meantime.

The name of the album is a reference to Abbie Hoffman's counter-culture book, 'Steal This Book' and as a message to those who stole the songs and released them on the Internet.
This can be attributed to the release of their first album, which occurred during the "nu metal" boom of the mid-to-late '90s, though they'd actually been making music and touring before nu-metal had been created.
In the album booklet, the band dedicates "this song to the memory of the 1.5 million victims of the Armenian Genocide, perpetrated by the Turkish Government in 1915." The Armenian Genocide is still highly sensitive in certain communities.
