P.O.D.: Satellite

Sound — 10
In my opinion this is POD's masterpiece. It's got basically everything you would want in a POD album and a little more. It's got some pretty sweet solos, some incredible vocals by Sonny (screaming or singing), it has some awesome drum and bass parts, some killer riffs, some major hits like, Alive, Set It Off, Youth Of The Nation, and Boom. Then it has some lesser known songs that are killer like The messenjah, Portrait, Anything right, and Masterpiece conspiricy. Then it has some softer songs like The Ghetto which talks about the world and differences, and another slow song called Thinkin About Forever which talks about a lost loved one and the future. And there is the title track Satellite which is a very cool song that has a nice Bridge. Finally there is the two reggey vibed songs ridiculous and Without Jah Nothin'. Each song has a sound of its own but they all mold with the overall album perfectly. POD was always good at taking a certain sound and making each song fit the sound of the overall album. And throughout the whole record it just has this spacey sound to it. The albums special guests include Christian from Blindside, and a few reggea guests. This is without a doubt pods most polished album. Hard Heavy Emotional and Energtic are a few words to describe the songs. It is just a tight album with a lot to offer.

The lyrics were well done. My farvorite lyrical songs were, Set It Off, The Messenjah, Anything Right, and Portrait. Sonny's skills are very good whether he is screaming with energy, singing with style, or rapping.

Overall Impression — 10
This is a flat out winner. POD's best by far. It's their effort and talent and versitality that shine on this one. Best songs are Set It Off, Youth Of The Nation, The Messenjah (personal favorite), Anything Right, and Portrait (personal favorite). Get this today if you don't have it.
