Fundamental Elements of Southtown [edit]
by P.O.D. (Payable On Death) | Genre: Pop/Rock | Release Date: August 24, 1999

With their aggro music, tattoos, piercings, and dreadlocks, P.O.D. (Payable on Death) might be conveniently filed next to Deftones or Rage Against the Machine. However, like U2, whose "Bullet the Blue Sky" they cover, P.O.D. are actually a Christian-based rock band, though not overtly religious enough to scare nonbelieving music fans away. This multiethnic quartet from the Southtown area of San Diego purveys an amalgam of modern music; elements of rap, metal, reggae, and hip-hop permeate this 16-track debut. P.O.D. doesn't bring much new to their hybrid style on The Fundamental Elements of Southtown, but what they do, they do well. From the gentle, reggae-tinged "Set Your Eyes to Zion" to the heavy grind of "Hollywood" and the rap-metal of "Lie Down," P.O.D.'s diverse and rockin' musical messages of positivism should make the foursome, already well known on the Christian rock circuit, a band to reckon with in secular circles. --Katherine Turman

Boo Yeah | Posted December 27, 2008
All I can say about this album is that it's an hour of pure adrenaline fueled awesomeness. The guitar crunches so well that it seems that it's all one song. Nuff said.

great stuff | Posted May 25, 2008
Before POD became radioized and mainstream, this album is in your face rock mixed with POD roots of hip hop and reggae elements. Southtown may their best song to date.
