But it’s the propulsive title track off these exuberant Cincinnati kids’ third album–and the sonic orgy actually works. All 13 kaleidoscopic tracks, particularly standout “Anywhere You Go,” a supercollider of rhythmic groove, guitar, and Wurlitzer organ, distill a decade-plus of indie and alt rock into a sparking art-pop swell. Spazzing out, Joey Cook cries: “I really like you!” The feeling’s mutual.”

“Like the rest of their new release, One of Us, ‘50s’ puts a beat into your step and you drift off into a swooning world of guitar strings, and mastered mixing.”

Payable on Death – P.O.D.

A Voice of Life

Almost 27 years after the band's first studio album, P.O.D.'s message is arguably more important than ever. "I believe (our message) is even more relevant now than it was then. If you really listen to 'Youth of the Nation,' we still have these tragedies going on. There’s a lot of searching still going on out there."
