  • Track by track, here we go.1. Remedy – Really explosive opening track. Beautiful guitars, beautiful bass, beautiful voices. Not my all time fav, but a great song. Really catchy too. 9.5/102. Suffocate – My least favorite song on the album. There is a girl singing after scoother sings and it kinda ruins it for me. This song isn’t bad, just not my favorite. 9/103. Cure my Tragedy (A Letter to God) – A great song. Its quiet in the beginning, but then it somewhat explodes into a beautiful chorus. Scooter’s vocals are great on this song. I also love the guitar part near the end where he goes on the small strings. 10/104. Stupid Girl – The first single from the album. Co-written by one of my main guys Rivers Cuomo of Weezer. This song is addictive, and is easy to see why its the first single. 10/105. Don’t Belong – I really like this song. I really like the chorus of this song. I like the message behind this song. Listen to and and you’ll know what I mean. 9.5/106. Wasted Years – A very sad song, but a good example of what Cold is. One of the best on the album. 10/107. Whatever you became – Not my favorite. Has a neat ending though. 9/108. Sad Happy – One of my 3 favorites. I really like the guitar riffs and Scooter’s vocals on this one. The chorus is really strong, lyrically and musically. 11/109. Rain Song – One of my 3 favorites. I am addicted to the chorus of this song. Scooter has a real talent when it comes to singing and songwriting. This song sounds sad, and honestly, the song sounds like it is raining. A really powerful song. Scooter said he was motivated to write this when he remembered that three of his friends had died in a house fire, and it rained shortly after the fire. 11/1010. The Day Seattle Died – This song is a tribut Kurt Cobain. This song is pretty cool. There is some heavy bass action during the song. It sounds pretty cool. The guitars sound kinda funky though. Then they tear … atthe chorus, as usual ^.^ 9.5/1011. Change the World – I am addicted to the beginning of this song. Sam tears it up on the drums and there is a haunting “OOOoooOOOOOOooooo” and it sounds really neat. I like the guitar riffs on the rest of the song. Also strong lyrically. 9.5/1012. Black Sunday – Acoustic and electric guitar teamed up to create this beauty. I don’t listen to this song much, usually because I skip to the next song… 9/1013a. Kill the Music Industry – The heaviest song on the CD. A headbanger’s song. The gutars and bass rip it up as Sam lays down the beats and Scoot screams “Kill the …Music Industry!” A really pumped song, but Fast Forward to listen to.. 9.5/1013b. Gone Away [Hidden Track] – My all-time favorite Cold song. I love everything about this song. The guitar, the vocals, everything. This song is really emotional, and I love it. I also love the guitar solo, done in the video on Kelly’s Spider Guitar. The best Cold song ever. 100/10This is one of my all-time favorite CDs, by one of my all-time favorite bands, Cold. I bought this the day it came out. May 13, 2003. Buy it today!
