Reviewers here seem torn over this album..."It sucks!" "It's their best music yet!" For those not yet initiated, POD's newest is three steps forward, two steps back.
This is a more cohesive project than anything they've done before. "Fundamentals" was hard, but unfocused. "Satellite" raised the quality level and contained some of the most commercial and catchy POD songs, while also maintaining an edge that belied the slick packaging. On the flip side, it was a disjointed effort. From song to song, it sounded like a different group at times.
"Payable on Death" tries to stitch it all together. And almost succeeds. The level of musicianship matches or surpasses their previous efforts. The lyrics are thought-provoking, if more obscure than any other album. The sound is consistent throughout. Unfortunately, there's not much that grabs you and won't let go. This doesn't sound original or fresh. It sounds like professionals doing their thing, and doing it very well. That old passion seems to be missing.
Sure, time mellows many rockers, but their zeal is what sucked many of us warriors into POD's music. This album is slowly growing on me; yes, I'm giving it a chance. And, no, I won't turn my back on them over one album. I just hope their next set brings back the raw emotion while holding onto the new cohesiveness. It's these glimmers of brilliance that keep us coming back for more.

Even better than the Previous album Satellite that first made them Famous! Just more well rounded and a shame more songs could've been turned into Hits from here..

While I appreciate the heavier style that POD is known for this album does bring a fresh reggae feel to an approachable metal.

No matter waht anyone says, if you like any P.O.D this is the same and as good as what the radio plays. If you only like radio play then you might only want the single.
