I need to share this song. I consider this song to be a real tear-jerker. I don’t really have much to say about it at this time. It’s best to just to listen to it.
In a word? Fan-fucking-tastic. (It’s hyphenated, it still counts as one word.)
Seriously, the same goes for the rest of this album. I would have never thought in a million years that Serj’s odd style of experimental rock would work so well as arranged for an orchestra. If you’re a fan of System of a Down or Serj’s solo album, or are just plain looking for a great album to pick up, I highly recommend this one. I had just recently obtained a copy of this myself, and I was immediately awestruck at just how epic the live performance is. I’d even be comfortable saying it’s already become my favourite live album of all-time just because of how unique and rare this sort of concert is, especially one that works well. I always enjoy an odd, awesome juxtaposition of musical styles. I’m having a hard time focusing on the track itself because the awesome is just overflowing from this album. Go check it out right NOW.
Hey, look: a love/hate song that doesn’t suck! Wow, I never thought I’d see the day. The lyrics in this one are great, and although the accompanying music is fantastic as well, the lyrics and vocals are definitely the highlight of this song for me. The words and the emotion that’s injected into them by the vocalist’s singing perfectly captures the feeling of how you just hate to love that wonderfully nauseating someone. The accompanying music is just the icing on the cake, working together with the vocalist to paint a vivid scene of a day in the life of this dysfunctional couple.
