Perhaps keen on being the new Zappa, System Of A Down's main man presents a genuine jazz album -- or as close an approximation as one can get with a drummer who gigs with Juliette Lewis and a trumpeter/pianist and flautist/organist/multi-instrumentalist who dabble in sundry world music (mostly Eastern European, judging from tracks like "Arpeggio Bust" and "Jinn"). Early '70s Miles-type fusion seems another likely goal, alongside lounge crooning ("Distant Thing"), Shaft-y blaxploitation ("Waitomo Caves"), Cab Calloway quotes (“Papa Blue”) and even, in "Through Nights and Hopes," a bit of metal.
