P.O.D.'s time has definitely come with this album, it stayed in the US Billboard Top Ten for weeks, it will have easily gone Double Platinum in the States by now and the single "Alive" is Grammy nominated. With so much mainstream acclaim the more cynical among us might think they've watered down their message. We'd be wrong. Sonny has worked hard at making his lyrics really black and white and 'Satellite' is a great album because of it. The music comes in the form of utterly crunching guitar riffs and rhythms and the band's constant style flipping, (check "Without Jah, Nothing"), ensures there's something for everyone. 'Satellite' is a seriously good album, you can take it anywhere and people will love it - Christian and non- (provided of course they like nu-metal/rapcore) and that is the band's crowning achievement, they haven't diluted their message, they've intensified it and God is blessing them for it.
