The comment I really can't understand is that the album is repetitive. While many tracks are rooted in hard rock with a touch of rap, there are also slower moodier numbers and a touch of reggae, with guest performers on several tracks. Things like Ridiculous and Without Jah, Nothing make a nice change from the normal sound, with Ghetto also especially inspirational, and Thinking About Forever takes a subject which causes some horrible songs (the death of your mother) and still carries it off.
That the group are Christian may make a little difference to your perspective on the album. I'm not religious myself but I didn't find it preachy, except for maybe 1 or 2 tracks. It makes a change from much rock and rap endorsing violence, hatred, negativity and mysogeny, which is all very well but doesn't save people (in any sense). Listening to the CD ought to make you feel happier and more positive about the world as a whole, whatever you believe
1. "Set It Off"
Great, hard, rocky start to the album to get you in the mood for the rest of the album.4/5
I'm sure everyone has heard this song by now & it really shows how good P.O.D. are.5/5
Like "Set It Off" & just as good.4/5
4. "Youth Of The Nation"
An absolute cracker.This song is about the troubled lives of certin teens & putting teens singing the chorus & the end of the song is an work of genius.5/5
An instrumental track which fits in perfectly with the previous song.3/5
Another one of the big tracks on the album.The song talks about how God is like a satellite & can see everything.Very catchy chorus.
Features Jamaican reggee legend Eek-A-Mouse.Not really my style of music & sometimes sounds really bad.1/5
8. "The Messenjah"
This is a heavy rock song but which has a religious influence.One of my favourite songs, the shouting really fits in with the song as well as the great drumming.
9. "Guitarras De Amor"
Another instrumental track which features Spanish guitars & muffled voices.3/5
10. "Anything Right"
Sounds alot like "Alive" but not as good.This song is about not doing anything right in other peoples eyes.3/5

Satellite is an amazing arrangement of fantastic rap, rock, and reggae.
Set It Off does exactly what it says on label, and sets off the CD brilliantly, with hard drums, guitar, and vocals from Sonny.
Well, you must have heard Alive by now! It was the first single from the album, and really shows off Sonny's vocals, and what P.O.D can do!
Boom! has a perfect title, with a loud, 'n' proud tune, and lyrics to go with it!
Youth of the Nation is slightly turned down, and brings you back to earth. It's about the trouble's of today's life for teen's, and is accompanied by a sombre tune, which fit's perfectly. It's still good stuff.
Celestial is a joining tune, which leads you into the next part of the record. It uses sci-fi sounds and unusual guitar sounds to help.
Satellite is another of the CDs big one's! It puts the volume back up in your headphones, and is full of cool vocals, guitar riffs, and hard drums, showing one of P.O.D Satellite's cooler tunes.
Well the start of Ridiculous is quite different to Satellite, but then in comes Sonny, and it's more of the good old rapping, with Eek-A-Mouse backing up, and helping out.
The Messenjah is another one for hard rock fan's, with heavy guitar, and drums, with a well done set off rapping, and shouting, making another cool tune.
Guitarras da Armor, is another instrumental 'interlude', made up of mainly Spanish guitars with whispering in the background.
Anything Right is basically a telling of someone who's down and feels they can't do anything right. With a hard tune which fit's it perfectly and, amazingly some violins in the background, it is another amazing and hard track.
Ghetto is generally a calm track, and talks about the hard world.
