Best System of a Down Albums

The Top Ten

1 Toxicity


Every song is great. My favorite ones are Chop Suey!, Toxicity, Aerials and Forest.

I love every single song of this album. every time I hear Aerials it gives me goosebumps

Toxicity has to be their best album, you rarely see someone arguing about that

2 Mezmerize

While I love every song on Toxicity, this album is more musically complex with tracks like Question! and B.Y.O.B, and then you have plain awesome metal headbangers such as Cigaro and Old School Hollywood. It's extremely tough to choose between this and Toxicty, however this album will always hold a place in my heart which Toxicity cannot.

Sad Statue is the best song by System of a Down, no doubt.

I find that this album was a huge improvement when it comes to guitar work, this, toxicity and their debut are my favorites, but this one flows the best I feel

Just Awesome

3 System of a Down

The only System Of A Down album without a bad track on it. It's heavy, it's raw, it's creative in new and astounding ways and it was truly ahead of its time.

This album is if you told a bunch of guys with guitars, drums, bass, and a mic to go mad. Sounds amazing

The heaviest album by System of a Down by far. It's my personal favorite.

They did this without commercial viewpoint, or they at least had less to worry about what people thought and who bought them, that is why this is there purest and best work.

4 Hypnotize

All round good album

My favorite one. I don't get why people like mesmerize better, but whatever. - mtndewlord

They achieved their ultimate potential with hypnotize.

Mezmerize and Hypnotize are almost at a tie but mezmerize had better songs

5 Steal This Album!

This album is very underrated, it has some elements that was used in toxicity and later influenced the sound in Mezmerize/Hypnotize. I think it deserves more appreciation. - FLIPMODE

The best of the 5 for me without a doubt. It has the perfect combination of heavy riffs, melodies and harmonies. I can listen to the whole album from start to end in a way that I can't do for the rest of them.

I believe this album is the best of the 5. The vocals are amazing, I'm a sucker for harmonies, even not the best ones (see Roulette)

And my personal favorite System of a Down song, Highway Song
These are just some of the reasons why Steal This Album! Replaces Toxicity as the best System of a Down album - Danielsun182

6 Storaged Melodies

Has some really good songs, but the songs that are with other people (don't go off wondering, feel good etc are pretty bad in my opinion) Blue, Marlamade, Storaged, Johnny, and Temperr are just some of my personal favorites
