Cold World - How The Gods Chill
Who: Cold World
What: Third studio album by this Pennsylvania hardcore/emo/hip-hop hybrid act. Released on Deathwish Inc.
When: August 2014
Where: Wilkes-Barre, PA
Why: The record on which all Life of Agony, Wu Tang Clan, and Killing Time fans can agree.
[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.]
