P.O.D. have made a few changes since Testify. Frontman Sonny Sandoval has chopped his signature dreads off his and the band has switched from Atlantic Records to Columbia Records. Then fortunately guitarist Marcos Curiel. who played guitar on their previous successful albums The Fundamental Elements of Southtown and Satellite has returned to the band. All these factors combined seem to be positive for P.O.D. They have matured and progressed from the rap-rock-reggae hybrid style they produced before and have written more mature crafty songs but still with a neat groove.
This album still has radio friendly hard rock hitting tracks. with songs like “Condescending”, “Addicted” and “”End of the World”. which features a gospel choir, something I wouldn’t have expected from P.O.D. In fact this whole album is filled with hard-hitting radio friendly rock tunes. It also has guest appearances from Mike Muir of Suicidal Tendencies and Helmet’s Page Hamilton, so you really can’t miss with this release.
