    While the band's sound here leans toward the more grungy end of hardcore, P.O.D. have always evinced a knack for hooky pop songwriting, and the best tracks here are the more melodic, pop-oriented ones.

    Murdered Love is best when all the anthemic stuff comes equipped with the sort of infectious grooves that the band's SoCal stomping ground is known for.

    Murdered Love is a perfectly enjoyable and easily digestible slice of rap-metal.

    This glossy but bland procession is likely to be a weakening experience. [14 Jul 2012, p.53]

    Unlike their previous album When Serpents and Angels Dance, P.O.D. returns to their signature nu metal & rapcore sound. When Serpents and Angels Dance was a generic made for radio mainstream rock album. Murdered Love, on the other hand, is a killer underground, in your face, explosive rap rock record. This album has everything a P.O.D. would want. However, it is not as good as the first 4 albums, therefore it only gets a 8/10. Expand
