  1. This album will not please everyone, but it is unique when compared to Tankian's work up to now, and that is what's best for everyone.
  2. It's an easier to admire than to love. [18 Sep 2010, p.58]
  3. The splicing of classical instrumentation with electronica and jazz flourishes may alienate his old band's fans, but there is much to admire here. [Oct 2010, p.120]

    Imperfect Harmonies plays as if Frank Zappa had lived to experience the glories of the Crystal Method, Ozzfest, George W. Bush, and Final Fantasy X.
  5. On his latest solo effort, System of a Down man, Serj Tankian, continues to stride further and further away from the sound that was once his bread and butter.

    System Of A Down frontman is caught trying too hard. Again. [Oct. 2010, p. 101]

    A 67? Seriously?
    Imperfect Harmonies' grandiosity cannot be understated. This record is a masterpiece of emotion, pulsing with life at every level. Brilliant orchestration and limitless beauty abound. Serj's mannerisms can be a turn-off to some, but even for all its quirks Imperfect Harmonies is to great to be soiled. Nobody else is making albums like this these days.
