Best System of a Down Albums

The Top Ten

Toxicity Toxicity Product Image

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

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

If you have to introduce a friend to System of a Down, this album is the key

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

Mezmerize Mezmerize Product Image

I have listened almost all their songs since 2014, in the last month I listened the full albums, in my opinion

1. Mezmerize
2. System of a Down
3. Toxicity
4. Dreaming
5. Steal this album

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.

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

5.System of a Down
4.Steal this album!
3.Hypnotize
2.Toxicity
1.Mezmerize
(But every album is beautiful)

System of a Down System of a Down Product Image

Their most heaviest and pure album to date. Sugar and Spiders are played on the radio but those are underrated. Chop suey is good but let's be Honest you can sick of it easily. This album is new almost every time you hear it

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.

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 and toxicity are when they had some real energy in them, biblical album, every song is worth a listen

Hypnotize Hypnotize Product Image

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

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

They achieved their ultimate potential with hypnotize.

This has more amazing songs then Mezmerize

Steal This Album! Steal This Album! Product Image

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.

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.

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)

Their best album by far. It has my favourite System Of A Down song on it. (Ego Brain)

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
