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.]
