Single Review: Serj Tankian – Reconstruction Demonstrations (Warner/Serjical Strike)

Serj Tankian

System Of A Down-man Serj Tankian was and continues to remain an personal musical icon for me. And while I haven’t checked in on much of what he’s been up to lately, System Of A Down were a huge presence for me growing up. And, I’m pleased to report, ‘Reconstruction Demonstrations’, which is taken from Tankian’s second solo album, ‘Imperfect Harmonies’, sounds absolutely incredible.

Am I surprised? No. I’m just pissed off at myself for ignoring this man’s solo work for so long. With a string arrangement this good and a voice that could end World War III (in yo face, James Blunt), it’s a wonder he’s managed to slip and stay under my radar for that amount of time. With an undeniable hint of Trent Reznor (aka perfection) underlayed in its in its composition, ‘Reconstruction Demonstrations’ is a powerful blast of energy, philosophical and almighty: the words of a wise man.
