Steal This Album! is a compilation of previously unreleased tracks by the ever-aggressive, always compelling hard-rock outfit. Much of the material reaches as far back as the early '90s (before the band signed with American) and as recent as the sessions for the massive 2001 release, Toxicity. While this can technically be viewed as a stop-gap measure until the band issues its next studio set, Steal This Album! has none of the mediocrity that is often associated with collections of this nature. In fact, cuts like first single "Innervision" (a fast-rising hit at modern-rock radio), as well as "Pictures" and "Highway Song," exude a fresh, cutting-edge quality that helps render this set a relevant addition to System's catalog.—LF
