Energetic, persuasive, engaging. The latest from System of a Down singer Serj Tankian’s solo project is his best work since Elect the Dead and Hypnotize. Fans of his signature style of politically charged rock have come to expect no less, and Harakiri hits the mark.
I missed hearing early previews ahead of the July 2012 release – only picking it up later when the title track music video was featured on Zune. If you haven’t heard it yet, look for it on YouTube or your music store of choice and check out Cornucopia, Figure it Out (also a video), Ching Chime and the title track Harakiri. Great album!
