P.O.D’s newest single, “Beautiful” has quickly become one of my favorite songs from the band. It’s a simple mid-tempo rock ballad with a touch of their reggae influences. The lyrics are powerful. This song really helps people get through tough times in their lives. Unless you live under a rock, you would already know P.O.D. is a Christian band, but the message in this song is uplifting to anyone, no matter what religion you practice, or what rut you may be going through. For those who think it’s a little “soft”, it’s merely a ballad among a predominately rap-rock album, highlighting the sound that got them famous in the first place.
