Night Beat Rewind: June 2014

We have reached the end of the third quarter for the #PlatVnyl5 Eligibility year. I would say it's all downhill from here, but experience teaches that that is hardly true. There will be an August or September release which will come and wow us all. I expect it. As has been the habit of recent times, we begin with a few singles.


The Single Scene

  • DJ Maj - Broken (feat Milton Young) 4.50 Emeralds
  • Holly Starr - God Is 4.50 Emeralds
  • Kevin Max - Infinite 4.75 Emeralds
On to the EP's and Albums. As always, we begin with the releases which will not get a nomination because they missed the bar to get into the pool.

Missing The Mark

  • Jon Guerra - Glass 3.75 Emeralds
  • Leeland - Live: Christ Be All Around Me 3.75 Emeralds
  • Lightfall - Lightfall 3.75 Emeralds
  • Tom McConnell - Handiwork 3.50 Emeralds
  • Preson Phillips - In Our Winters 3.75 Emeralds
I never really got Leeland. They captured my attention at the start with Sound of Melodies back in 2006, that was back before this blog existed. The song that captured everyone was Tears of The Saints. Since then, it has been all downhill for the band. Everything sounds like what you would expect for a "worship band". There was one perfect release, or Pure Platinum as we call it, and that was from the Metal arena. Wolves at The Gate scored a perfect 5 Emeralds with VxV. The rest of the month was somewhere in between, or what we call

Semi-Precious Metal

  • Archer's Rise - Jupiter Bound EP 4.75 Emeralds
  • Anthem Lights - Covers Part III 4.75 Emeralds
  • Carolina Story - Chapter Two EP 4.50 Emeralds
