The Fundamental Elements Of Southtown
Released: Jan 1999
Label: Rhino Atlantic
On P.O.D.'s debut album, many musical styles are covered, and for the most part, covered well. Fundamental Elements of Southtown reflects the band's love for hard, aggro music (a la Rage Against the Machine) and their love for Christian ideals, but don't let the latter scare you; the message is positive, not preachy. A bit derivative, but a solid debut, nonetheless.
