This cd is just plain wack,except for "Set It Off'.The rest of the cd is just mainstream/pop hardcore and wannabe reggae,
And what's up with "Youth of the Nation",it seems they don't offer the solutions of the problems they talk about.
Anyways,my lil' bro got it for christmas that's how I heard it...
Thank God I got The Benjamin Gate's "untitled"...
And what's with "Anything Right"btw...

I guess you don't like "mainstream/pop hardcore and wannabe reggae". I apparently enjoy that style, I think it's either your mindset or your taste that keeps you from liking it.

I guess they didn't have enough verses. Seriously though, they do hint at the sources of our problems and suggest that maybe there is more to life than we understand, or that we don't understand God's plan.

How many times have you heard it?

If that is your preferred style, I would rather get Satellite, but I haven't heard much of Benjamin Gate.

I don't know if it's about God or a Christian who can't see the plank in their own eye.

not really,it's just this record,i think their older stuff is way better

well,that's true,but i think they coulda done better lyrically



How many times have you heard it?

a lot,and the only song i enjoyed was set it off.



If that is your preferred style, I would rather get Satellite, but I haven't heard much of Benjamin Gate.

ben gate's sound is so far from being "my preferred style",but i think it's way better than Satellite.



I don't know if it's about God or a Christian who can't see the plank in their own eye.
well,judging by the lyrics it's gotta be about a christian,don't ya think?

Very sweet CD, I personally think it's a lot better than Southtown. They have a lot broader range of sound, and a lot of the songs are very strong lyrically. My favorites are Alive (of course), Boom & Masterpiece Conspiracy.

"This cd is just plain wack,except for "Set It Off'.The rest of the cd is just mainstream/pop hardcore and wannabe reggae,"

Well....You Think it sounds like mainstream/pop hardcore and reggae...my question..what's the point? So what if it does....you only got half a thought here bro...if you would've added.."..and I don't really care for that sound personally" that finishes the thoguht.
Soemthin to think on...stuff is mainstream/pop because that's what is popular with the most people....



"And what's up with "Youth of the Nation",it seems they don't offer the solutions of the problems they talk about."

They point the finger and bring to our attention the problems we are facing....its our job to change it....they merely broguht it the forefront of our midns throguh a song...the responsibility to give it a happy endign or change it is on us, not them.

You don't like it that the song ends seemingly bleak...well, that's how lfie is..that's the reality of our world...and unless we step up and do our parts and more...then there will eb no happy peachy endings....music isn't always to make us all rosy and ahppy...sometimes its a challenge to us..I hope I pss this one.



"Anyways,my lil' bro got it for christmas that's how I heard it...
Thank God I got The Benjamin Gate's "untitled"..."


Yes that is your prefered style....if you have the choice between two styles and you choose one over the other, we call this phenomenon "prefered style." A Preference is merely liking somethign better than another thing...doesn't have to be a favorite, just a preference.



"And what's with "Anything Right"btw... "

Well...how often have you opened up your soul and been so fully honest and thoguht how often you s crew thigns up? How often you fail? How many tiems you KNOW a door ahs been opened up and you didn't go through? How often God has a plan and you hold Him back?

If we are fully honest with ourselves, we screw up TONS...our lives are pathetic attempts to serve Him..but we gotta keep at it and try to rise above those mistakes...


This goes abck to the thign where they put thigns in the limelight...adn tis our place to fix what is wrong....


We so foten want to be all lvoey-dovey..nice happy endings, just like the sappy love story they havein every movie where the guy gets the girla dn we're all happy in the end...that ain't life.






I LOVE this CD..I gave it an 8 though..because there were like 4 tracks that seemed such a waste....you couldn't understand the lyrics even if yur sittin there readin the liner notes......and soem jsut seemed poitless..but OVERALL..its very very sweet.

P.O.D. are an awesome ministry..keep it comin...

My favs:
Alive, Youth Of A NAtion, BOOM, Set It Off, Materpiece Conspiracy, Satelite....


Rock On Sonny & Crew, "Stay true tot he old school..."

-Cal

I've never seen why. Can you show it to me? Or anybody else for that matter, I want to know which lyrics make people think it's about a Christian, I'm open-minded about it.

WOW Heavy C. That was rockin what you said.
And now i'll help out fifsuperpod...
ON Portrait, the words are...

You're not who they say you are
They made you the enemy
(CHRIST-jah flesh; CHRIST-light within; CHRIST-Begining and the end)
Taken something so beautiful
Painted a new picture that makes me sick
(CHRIST-Witness; CHRIST-Living one; CHRIST-First and last)
Feed our minds confusion
Sweeten the taste of pollution
(CHRIST-Word life; CHRIST-Ressurect; CHRIST-Everlasting jah)
CHORUS:
Some people call you father
Maybe you could set me free
These people hate each other
But you've always been there for me

I refuse to be like you
Without my life, caving in
(CHRIST-Jah flesh; CHRIST-Light Within; CHRIST-Begining and the end)
I surrender, giving up all that is me
Yielding to you
(CHRIST-Witness; CHRIST-Living one; CHRIST-First and the last)
Shape me in my brokeness
Empower me forever
(CHRIST-Word life; CHRIST-Ressurect; CHRIST-Everlasting jah)
CHORUS
I know you will complete this work started in me
I need you more than ever now that I know who you are
I know you will complete this work started in me
I need you more than ever now that I've come so far

I sure don't know how you can't see what's so "Christian" in that song. If ya need more, I'll be here.

this cd is great, and it definitely broadened the audience that pod have...but dont buy this album and judge pod by it alone. the first album i bought by them was southtown, and i thought it was great when i bought it. now i look at it as a lower grade almost. i still like it, but the old albums are much better musically and lyrically, in my opinion.

Thank you very much..I just try to see more in music than just the lyrics...
A song is like the Cliff Notes for a sermon....and its up to us to sit there and study the Cliff Notes and fill in the missing spots with logic and using other notes...and our minds.

There is so much more we can get from music than just the lyrics...if we will open our midns and let our souls be free as tobyMac puts it....

Also..I've learned to quit expecting music jsut to be all lovey dovey and all cheerfull...sometiems music shows us a burden we have..to change...


Thansk for the lyrics to Portrait...

But the comment mentioning about a Christian...that was in reference to the song Anything Right...not Portrait.....myabe I crossed soemthing..but thats what I got outta it...

Yeah, I was talking about the guy Sonny is talking to in anything right. I was asking why people thought he was talking about a Christian.
