I'm surprized some one didn't do this before me :|

Mezmerize & Hypnotize are an album broken up into two CDs.

Mezmerize feature 11 songs, some of them a little odd and not apropriate for young audiences. Some of the better songs on Mezmerize include BYOB, Revenga, Radio/Video, Question!, Sad Statue and Lost in Hollywood.

The lyrics are odd for some of the songs, some just don't make sense, but are still good. Though the ltrics to Cigaro are definetly not for younger audiences.

Overall rating for Mezmerize: 8.9/10

Hypnotize features 12 songs, some of them really good others odd in a good way, like System likes to do (for those who know system, you'll understand this, espesially when I say, Chik'n Stew). Some of the better songs on the album include Hypnotize, Holy Mountains and Soldier Side. (If your thinking "hey that's on Mezmerize", I'm not surprised there are two version of it)

The lyrics are actually somewhat more normal compaired to some of System's of songs *cough*Cigarowierdestmostdisturbingsongevar*cough* the songs aren't as quite loud as the ones on Mezmerize, and they liked to use the synthesizer in Holy Mountain.

Over All Rating: 8.7/10

Please keep in mind that the swear occasionaly.

Now if you listen to Mezmerize follwed by the songs in Hypnotize it kind of comes together, it's pretty cool listening to Soldier Side on Mezmerize followed by Soldier Side on Hypnotize.

Overall rating for both: 9.4/10

I'm thinking perhaps if you do Hypnotize, you should also do Mezmerize since it's supposed to be considered one album broken up over two CDs.

If I have time (and can be bothered), I'll do a review of the whole album later.

EDIT: Thread stickied, link added in the CD Reviews thread. :)

I was to lazy to do both of them at once, I'll edit in Mezmerize later so don't bother doing the entire album.

I was actually gonna do do a review of these albums soon but you beat me there.

I really want to get Hypnotize so much, but my local MVC doesnt have it so hopefully the new music shop being built will have it when it opens... Ive heard the single Hypnotize on the radio, sounds very good, very very good. I love Mezerise... Revenga is just out of this world >_<!!!

SOAD: 9/10
Mezmerize: 9.1/10
What ive heard of Hypnotize: 8.9/10
