Cool Gardens

From Serj Tankian, lead vocalist for critically acclaimed band System of a Down, comes a striking debut poetry collection highlighting his best work of the past eight years. Like System of a Down's platinum-selling second album, Toxicity -- hailed by Rolling Stone as "a bouquet of smart rock and ardent social argument" and by SPIN as "the sound of now" -- Tankian's poetic style is willfully eclectic.

Serj is the Man

I am really impressed. Serj Tankian has created so much great art. All the SOAD albums, his solo album is freakin incredible, and this book is great. I do not usually read poetry at all. This book marks the first time I've read poetry for enjoyment. Like his song writing, his poetry can be cryptic at times and that may turn off some people but if you give this book an open mind you will be rewarded with some great insights by a really cool guy. Seriously, this is great stuff.

Great book, a great buy for anyone who loves poetry.

This is the only book I have ever read cover to cover in my life! The book is absolutely great and you must buy it. The book contained a lot of sexual poems, which the poem's were good I just wasn't expecting it. If you don't buy the book for it's poetry, then you must for the artwork. The art is all origional and breath taking, it's just an amazing book of poems. HIGHLY, HIGHLY, RECOMENDED!!!

Review of "Cool Gardens"

This book is phenomenal! Serj Tankian is an excellent poet with a brilliant mind. Any true fan of System of a Down would love this work. The poems are funny, satirical, political, sexual, and just plain amazing. His ability to turn language into art is second to none. I highly recommend it!


I first heard about this release at the site (a music (metal) news site) and I instantly checked it out. And I loved it! It was absolutely amazing. Tankian's statements make you think. And I feel if you are a lover of good poetry, you NEED to check this out.

Thought Provoking

I first found out about this wonderful book from System of a Down's Site. I then went to serj's site and read some of the saple poems. His poetry really is imaginative and makes you think about things. Some of the better poetry I've read in a while.
