Serj Tankian, 'Imperfect Harmonies' (Serjical Strike/Reprise)

4
Imperfect Harmonies
Critical Mass
Label: Serjical Strike/Reprise

by christopherschultz

For his second solo album, System of a Down frontwonk Serj Tankian again coils his adenoidal, megaphonic vibrato around jagged art-metal, further exploring love in the time of "corporatocracy." After toying with the Auckland Philharmonia(2009's Elect the Dead Symphony), Tankian fully embraces orchestral arrangements on these paranoid anthems -- string-drenched, bombastic, willfully pompous, and composed with the subtlety of video-game end credits. Imperfect Harmonies plays as if Frank Zappa had lived to experience the glories of the Crystal Method, Ozzfest, George W. Bush, and Final Fantasy X.
