A big genre that is off to a slow start is Alternative. Only 5 releases made the cut, and one of those is a double dipper. Well, two double dippers are present, but for entirely different reasons. All The Bright Lights is in two genres, and Anberlin is in for the second year in a row with Vital because of its Devotion Special Edition. In total, these are the Alternative entries for the quarter.
- Devotion : Vital Special Edition, Anberlin
- Phoenix , Everything In Slow Motion
- Water & Guns , Aaron Sprinkle
- The White Room (Deluxe Edition) , Jonathan Thulin
- The Wind & the Waves , All The Bright Lights
