System 7 is the first studio album by the dance/ambient band System 7.

A somewhat different version was released in the United States as 777 by 777. (777 was also the title of System 7's second UK album.) The running order is different, there are two different mixes of two tracks, and it has two completely new tracks - "Depth Disco" and "Mia".

With several vocal tracks, this album has rather a different feel from later System 7 albums. Aniff Cousins appears on "Freedom Fighters" (with Zoë providing chorus vocals) and "Dog", and Olu Rowe on "Habibi", "Bon Humeur" and "Strange Quotations".
