    This album is a true masterpiece. Starting with the powerful and beautifully driven disowned inc. all the way through wings of summer. The album flows nicely as it has nice elements of all instruments. The listener will get lost in the sheer beauty of the instrumentation.

    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.

    Serj Tankians considerably Strange mix of music Genre's makes for a very enjoyable album, and although this may alienate some of his more hardcore fans, its an all round brilliant album bursting with artistic genius

    This is incredible album. This album contains various and beautiful songs as well as any previous work of Serj. I miss System so match but I can not deny the quality of this album.

    If u like bloated and pretentious music with an orchestra interludes at random intervals, d/l this. At one point of this laborious train wreck, Serj repeats the word "disease" about 12X. I kid u not! I really wanted to like this, but was disappointed.

  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. Forget imperfect--this bold reinvention is anything but. [Oct 2010, p.117]

    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.
