Product Description

Genre-smashing hard rock combo P.O.D. are back with SATELLITE, the highly-anticipated follow-up to 1999's RIAA platinum-certified Atlantic debut, THE FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENTS OF SOUTHTOWN. Much of the new album's lyrical content - at turns powerful, passionate, and poignant - deals with the band's outspoken belief in expressions of spiritual adventure and affirmation. Musically speaking, SATELLITE finds the SoCal-based quartet - Sonny: vocals; Marcos: guitars; Traa: bass; Wuv: drums - progressing by remarkable leaps and bounds. Throughout the record, P.O.D. incorporate a variety of new textures and styles into their sonic arsenal, from hip hop and dub reggae, to hardcore punk and heavy metal. Certified Mulit-Platinum (2 times) by the RIAA. (02/02)

The multi-hyphenated (rap-metal-hip-hop-reggae) foursome P.O.D. enjoyed indie success as a popular Christian metal band before their 1999 major-label debut, The Fundamental Elements of Southtown, sold platinum, establishing P.O.D. as a secular sensation. Featuring the soaring single "Alive," the San Diego quartet's sophomore effort, Satellite, is even more a part of the nu-metal mainstream than its predecessor. Throughout, front man Sonny is more rapper than singer, especially on rhythmically forward, Rage Against the Machine-like songs such as "Boom," "Masterpiece Conspiracy," and the melodic yet mosh-worthy "The Messenjah." With positive, spiritual, and personal lyrics (several songs, including the title track, were influenced by the death of Sonny's mother), Satellite runs the gamut from lilting to intensely aggro, often within one song. In a nod to P.O.D.'s influences, special guests include Jamaican icon Eek-A-Mouse on "Ridiculous" and Bad Brains legend HR on "Without Jah, Nothin'." This cool reggae, meshed with offbeat punk power, is placed alongside mellower midtempo rockers, including "Ghetto," to round out a varied and stellar album. --Katherine Turman

I'll try to keep this short, but it's hard with such an amazing CD. Here's a quick description of the tracks:
1. Set it Off: Amazing guitar riffs, and outstanding vocals. Perfect introduction.
2. Alive: If you don't already know and love it, come out from under your rock.
3. Boom: Equally as good as Set it Off, but with a much different tune.
4. Youth of the Nation: Eerie beats and a solemn teenage choir-fits the song perfectly.
5. Celestial: A cool, instrumental interlude.
6. Satellite: One of the best songs, with great lyrics and a cool alternative background.
7. Ridiculous: An odd, fast-paced reggae-rock song featuring Eek-A-Mouse. I personally don't like reggae, but I love this catchy song.
8. The Messenjah: Perhaps my favorite, this track features pure words combined with an adrenaline-pumping heavy metal beat.
9. Guitarras de Amor: A happy little guitar interlude.
10. Anything Right: Though it starts out much like Alive, the melodic violins and swaying vocals make this a unique song. Features Christian Lindskog from Blindside.
11. Ghetto: At first I didn't like this slow tune, but I soon realized the powerful lyrics that balanced it out.
12. Masterpiece Conspiracy: I'm not saying it's bad, but it's my least favorite song on the album. (Although I do admit I like the odd ending.)
13. Considered an interlude, it is really a fast-then-slow-paced punk song including H.R. from Bad Brains.
14. Thinking About Forever: A mellow yet incredible song.
15. Portrait: A peculiar mixture of different styles of music.
If you haven't heard this album yet, get it!!!
Got to go.

This cd without a doubt shows that POD's capable of so much more. Yes, all of Sonny's rapping is still in tact, not to mention his trademark scream, but in comparisson to their last album, there's a whole lot more singing. The songs are still as aggressive (if not more) as ever when they're suppose to be and the softer parts hold their ground and make them so much more dynamic through contrast. The beauty behind this cd is that it is a sound that's real. It all comes together quite well. Taking a stand and expressing their feelings and beliefs that doesn't sound like some fake put on angry sound or the other extreme with really panzy flaky music. A problem that many spiritual groups seem to stumble into. To me it takes on a stand that there are things to look forward to in life. That God is constantly watching over us. And it's all done with a confidence that just seems to say to me that POD's out there with their priorities in life. God plays a huge factor in their day and yes, they do go through their problems but because of their faith, they overcome them. POD reveals who they are and don't feel like they need to prove anything to anyone because it's already so real in their hearts. This cd is definitely worth checking out, I was skeptical because I never got into their last cd but this time around they've really gotten a bit of everything in there, rock, metal, rap, hip hop, spanish guitar, tribal and even some strings and a childrens choir. I'm not saying that you'll fall in love with every track because I myself haven't yet, but it looks like this'll be one of those albums that can grow on you the more you listen to it. My personal favorites so far are: Set It Off, Alive, Boom, Satellite, The Messenjah, and Portrait.Read more ›

I had been hearing a lot of System of a Down's "Toxicity" album lately--and loving it. This made me reflect on the new music I had listened to in 2001, and got me thinking on my picks for my favorite album of the past year. I basically narrowed it down to "Toxicity" and "Satellite." For a while it was a toss-up. However, I just got done listening to "Satellite" again, all the way through, and there's no longer any doubt in my mind--P.O.D. has produced THE best album of 2001.
The CD is AMAZING. Songs like "Set if Off," "The Messenjah," and especially "Portrait" can rock the hell out of you and still manage to be inspiring on a very sublime level. Track-by-track, the band stays true to its roots, but never becomes predictable. Yes, you'll here that Jesus loves you. But you'll also hear songs about school shootings ("Youth of the Nation"), moments of well-deserved self-promotion ("Boom"), and even an angry rant against judgmental Christians ("Anything Right").
There's considerably less screaming on "Satellite" than on albums past--vocalist Sonny Sandoval spends more time with on-the-money rhyming and several forays into straight-up melody (all of which wind up being successful --and moreso than last albums's "Set Your Eyes to Zion," in my opinion). This maturing of style will inevitably lead some to claim that P.O.D. has "sold out." I pity those people--they cheat themselves out of the best sonic experience of the year!

I borrowed P.O.D's "Satellite" from a friend and I really did not expect much at all from it. I had thought "Fundamental Elements" was a decent CD but nothing great. Anyway, I was really blown away by this CD the first time that I listented to it. It is full of all different types of music (ie "Ridiculous" and part of "Without Jah, Nothin') so do not expect an album that sounds like something Korn would release. The CD starts out with the catchy "Set It Off", and it does exacly that to this CD. "Alive", the first single, is next. I was not into this particular song the first time I heard it, but I have grown to really like it. "Boom" takes over next, and it is a great track that keeps the CD rolling. It is sort of like "Set it Off" part two in it's message and it's style. The chilling "Youth of the Nation" is next. This song is pretty much just a freestyle rap song, but it's lyrics are really..chilling and the end with the children singing the chorus is really well done. The filler "Celestial" is next. It is better than the fillers off of "Fundamental Elements" but it is still..a filler. "Satellite" is next up, and it could likely be the next single. I am pretty sure this song is inspired by the unfortunate death of Sonny's mother. This particular number is a nu-metal staple. "Ridiculous" is the next song up, and it really slows the tempo of the CD. It is a funky sounding reggae tune, nothing like anything on a Limp Bizkit or RATM album. It's really woth listening to though. "The Messenjah" is a great all out rocker, but it's nothing really special at all. It sounds alot like the title track but it's not quite as good.Read more ›
