On their successive 2001 hits, ”Alive” and ”Youth of the Nation,” SoCal raga-rap-rockers P.O.D. seemed to possess a knack for anthemic – if heavy-handed – metal.

On track after formulaic track, perfunctory verses rush into roaring refrains of compressed guitar arrrgh and charmless didacticism (”reach for the sky”). On the gag-worthy ”Change the World,” they challenge the listener to ”break the cycle,” only to ignore their own good advice.
