Hypnotize sucks. Except "Vicinity of Obscenity" ....banana banana banana banana terracotta

I've been listening to Steal This Album a lot lately, it's really really good. You can't take this band seriously for an instant, though. Like the song "Bubbles" I get really into it, but it's called Bubbles. A guilty pleasure, I guess. Even though I'm not guilty about it, they are good at what they do.

Hypnotize is definitely not as strong as Mezmerize, but my favorite is still their self titled.

SOAD has a very noticeable decline in metaphors and cryptic speech.  It used to be complex and left room for investigation, but as albums come out I think they realize how blunt they need to be.

Their self titled album was very enigmatic, Toxicity still used allegories, but became a little clearer, Steal This Album had songs like Boom ad Fuck the System, and Mezmerize has absolutely no real hidden meanings with songs like BYOB and Violent Pornography.  I don't know if the decline in intricacy is good or bad, since they're still releasing songs I enjoy (and some I skip to get to the others) but it is quite noticeable.
"As a matter of fact I only work with the feeling of something magical, something seemingly significant. And to keep it magical I don't want to know the story involved, I just want the hypnotic effect of it somehow seeming significant without knowing why." - Len Lye
