[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.]

Architects - Lost Forever//Lost Together

Verdict:  This band's roots are buried in sand. Also, I really hated the digital production on this record. Architects can actually play. Why hide behind the computers?

For fans of:  Bring Me the Horizon, Volumes, Suicide Silence, a less-technical Born of Osiris
