This the first album ive ever owned that i can listen to all the way through. It is really good....more importantly, John Dolmayan (drummer) has really done himself justice with his beats. Thats all ive got to say.

Anyone else listened to it?

Well. Here is  what I think:
1.- Dolmayan got significantly better (comparing to Toxicity).
2.- Comparing to Lombardino , he still has what to work on.
3.- Maybe Toxicity was not technically as good as Mezmerize, but it sounded  ... let's say - "deeper" to me. It got more air in it and lirics were making, definitely, more sence to me.
4.- BUT... Mezmerize has this -80's hook and I love it.

Overall: I DID buy this album Smiley .

I dont compare things to toxicity...only becuase i didnt listen to it the way i was supposed to. and i wish i did it differntly...

i know that John has but alot more double bass drumming in there....he admitted in an interview that he was weak in that area...but he has improved alot now...and i like it

i dont know if anyones noticed, but in the song 'revenga', in the chorus, he has a beat that had the consistant hihat being hit, the bass drum, snare an the bell of a ride all at the same time...i cant make my mind if the track has been over dubbed or he actully did a beat like that

Yeah john dolmayan sounds good in mezmerize. BYOB is cool to play on drums. Cant get the double bass at "marching forward hypocritic......" its fast. The Double bass in sad statue is hard too. Thats one spot im weak at.

My double bass isnt up to the standerd of John yet, so im not touching BYOB or Sad Statue. But im slowly improving my double bass by finding songs with triplet bursts of double bass. That i can handle well. Then once i get comfortable with that, i switch it round so i start the triplett on my left foot. Im improving quite quickly that way.

Ive Found some other songs im getting into though:

"Streamline" from Steal this Album
"Holy Mountains" from Hypnotize
"A.D.D." From Steal this Album
"Aerials" from Toxicity
"Loney Day" from Hypnotize
"Snowblind" from Nativity in Black 2 (2nd Black Sabbath tribute album)
"Chop Suey!" from Toxicity
"Lost in Hollywood" from Mezmerize
The intro to "Mr. Jack" from Steal this Album

Those are my favorite, but i find new ones every week.
