Night Beat Rewind is my monthly quick hits rating column for the releases of the Previous Month (the August column is for the July releases, how could it be otherwise since August is in Progress). I split the releases into three categories:
- Those Releases which failed to make the initial bar for consideration in the annual Platinum Vinyl Awards.
- Those Releases GUARANTEED to make the final 7 nominees vying for PVA consideration by virtue of being awarded a PERFECT 5 EMERALD RATING
- The rest of the releases which met the minimum threshold of 4 Emeralds to be included in the PVA Judging Pool.
Missed The Mark
- Clint Brown - Release 3.75 Emeralds
- Kari Jobe - The Acoustic Sessions [+video] 3.75 Emeralds
- Capital Lights - Rhythm 'N' Moves 3.75 Emeralds
- Your Memorial - Redirect 3.75 Emeralds
As you can tell by the rating of 3.75 Emeralds these releases just missed the mark. You can be secure knowing that these four are all solid albums, just not award worthy.
This month none of the releases blew me away, so NONE of the releases fell into the second category. There were no PURE PLATINUM releases.
