The Abandoned Hearts Club - Rarities

Who:  The Abandoned Hearts Club

What:  Collection CD of stray compilation tracks. Released on Robotic Empire.

When:  October 2009

Where:  Toronto, ON

Why:   Obscure recordings from a criminally underrated band. Contains the band's best song, "Experimenting With Maturity."

[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.]
