System of a Down’s fifth album is incisively nuanced, with chunky overdriven hooks and groovy percussion breakdowns. Their thrashy tendencies are balanced by singer Serj Tankian’s dramatic melodies, and a knack for dynamics means they sometimes trade fury for subtlety, making the best tracks both stunning and pummeling.
