[The Radness Average (or star rating) is derived from assigning each song a number of stars based on a 1-5 scale, then adding the total number of stars, and then dividing that number of total stars by the number of songs on the record. A Radness Average of 4.0 or higher indicates a good or great record. A Radness Average of 2.0 or less indicates pure crap. Everything else is in the middle somewhere.]

Radness Average: 1.500
Brighter Than A Thousand Suns - Flux
Verdict: Genuinely awful. Keyboard music that can't figure out if it wants to be Depeche Mode or some strange version of Coheed & Cambria. Not recommended for anyone.
