Back When: Click here to read the original review of Step 2 Rhythm which was written last year.
[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.]

Verdict: The songs were there. The album ruled. Let this be a lesson that, even in the best of conditions, major-label-land (or trying to be a part of it) is a crap shoot.
