Rick Rubin produced the Beastie Boys and brought them to be pretty damn big. He also produced the Chili Peppers album Blood Sugar Sex Magik. This may be a bit of a bold statement, but the song Under the Bridge was found by Rick Ruben when Anthony Kiedis gave him some of his poetry to look over.
Rick Ruben is sorta like the Jesus of bringing out the best in bands and encouraging them to try crazy ass new stuff. That made me expect a lot more from this album...although listening to the System of a Down album a few more times makes me like it more and more...but that doesn't mean it's going down in history as some magical work of art.
