Music Review: Serj Tankian – Harakiri

Artists who think people should give their music a chance because it supports a cause should listen to System Of A Down. A band like that or Rage Against The Machine or artists like Michael Jackson are the best examples that teach us that great music that can help a cause, that clutching a cause does not make music great or even good, and that the cause should never become greater than the music. Serj Tankian drives his points straight home with superbly crafted songs that are as accessible as Linkin Park tunes, but don’t run away, because Harakiri is high on the intelligence scale. Very easy on the ears, and a lot of fun, the album makes you sit up and think. If you don’t know what Serj Tankian is singing about, it will make you find out. The music is energetic, and at times, poignant. Harakiri has none of the lunacy that System Of A Down‘s debut was possessed by, but the eccentricities that set Serj Tankian apart from every other artist are here. Harakiri is a thoughtful and serious work of art from an amazing vocalist who is awake to the world around him and also knows how to sing about what he sees and thinks about it.
