  • Summary: Glen Ballard produced the nu-metal band's fifth album.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 3 out of 11
  2. Negative: 3 out of 11
  1. A collection that contains no weak links, no fillers, no afterthoughts and almost no mistakes.
  2. A mature and workmanlike metal monster-piece.
  3. 75
    P.O.D. too often fall back on vanilla "bang boogie." [Feb 2006, p.85]
  4. With nothing to react against and few new ideas to air, P.O.D. mostly operates in default mode, relying on hitmaker-for-hire Glen Ballard to inject the music with new life. Sadly, he doesn't.
  5. 40
    New touches only further dilute P.O.D.'s already watered-down sound. [Jan/Feb 2006, p.96]
  6. The most notable aspect of Testify, in fact, is how little P.O.D., or their guitars, have to say.
  7. There’ll be some splainin’ to do at the pearly gates.

    Only one word can describe this album: PHENOMENAL. One of the best albums I've heard in a very long time. This is a diverse, powerful and passionate album from a group that has now proven itself to be one of the great bands of our time. If you are a fan of rock music and have any taste at all for brilliant and inspired sounds then you will not be dissappointed. Expand

    I believe that this album is just a preperation for what they are going to do next.

    There are plenty of great tunes here to keep you interested. It is also a return to form for P.O.D., with rapcore elements reintroduced. The only problem is, it just isn't as original or memorable as Satellite. For example, no track stands out as much as a shout along "Youth of the Nation" or rap-metal-punk "Boom." And guitar riffs aren't as savage, and often drowned out by premade loops programmed by some dude in his mama's basement. However, songs like "Strength of My Life" make this a no-brainer for nu metal fans looking for something to chew on. Expand

    it's not as brilliant as their past albums but in all, not that bad. just wish they would stop holding on to "goodbye for now" to sell them.
