Falling Notes: The 2013 First Quarter - Dance

When the first quarter 2013 was originally closed out in December of 2012 (due to an abundance of Christmas Releases), there were only two entries in Dance. Dance. Not only were there two entries, but they both happened to garner perfect 5 ratings. First up was Shiny Toy Guns with III. Thousand Foot Krutch also made a showing with Metomorphosiz: The End Remixes, a remix album for their recent release, The End is Where We Begin.

The lost entries exploded this genre, with now five entries for this quarter. Since the genre got split in two, that's not so bad, but this is one of the danger genres this year.

Dance/Synthpop

  • Joy Electric - Dwarf Mountain Alphabet
  • Thousand Foot Krutch - Metamorphosiz: The End Remixes, Volume 1

Electronic/Industrial

  • Pas Neos - Who Do You Say I Am?
  • Beckah Shae - Scripture Snacks, Volume 2
  • Shiny Toy Guns - III
Beginning with the 3rd Platinum Vinyl Awards, the Dance/Synthpop genre was split into the two sub-genres. While Beckah Shae normally would be in the first category, her recent work has been more trance than dance, which puts her into the second.
