Topsy-Turvy is the debut studio album by the progressive metal band The Apex Theory, now Mt. Helium. Released on April 2, 2002, it was the band's last release as a quartet, with the vocalist Ontronik Khachaturian leaving the band shortly after the album's release. After attempting to audition for a new vocalist, it was decided that the guitarist Art Karamian would take over as the band's vocalist.

Apex Theory knows exactly which elements to take from each approach, whether it be the clear-throated croon of the latter or the delicate, experimental guitar of the former. For a good example, just try "Bullshed," which has amazing guitar work, intelligent lyrics, and a catchy melody that sticks around long after the song is over.

The fact that the Apex Theory did not become a global phenomenon off the back of this album is downright puzzling. Almost four years later, it's still one of my favourite albums. If you've even heard of the Apex Theory, this is likely the song you've heard. Complex drum rhythms and a shifting bassline underpin the subtler guitar, leaving the foreground for the vocals, the definite focal point of this song. The verses are filled with tonguetwister rants, which veer between insightful and nonsensical with the manic fervour of a crazed street preacher.

Apex Theory ~ Topsy-Turvy. You wait all your life for an Armenian-American nu-metal band from Los Angeles with an incomprehensible name and along come a thousand at once. But, while "Topsy-Turvy" is a great album and I highly recommend it, there wasn't anything absolutely ground breaking or awe inspiring to make it a 5 star album. Apex Theory's debut with the Apex Theory EP in 2001 had me anticipating this release very heavily. They were pretty much the only band that debuted in 2001 that wasn't boring.
