Night Beat Rewind: April 2015

I'm beginning to think that I might actually do this. The rush to get #PlatVnyl5 under way, plus an abundance of current releases has combined to create a bit of a backlog. Fortunately things don't stay that way for long. The 2nd Quarter releases are in the bag, and we have already put out the March Edition of rewind. Now we are about to do the April edition of rewind and it is still May.

Web begin with a few songs released during the month of April, or as we like to call it:


The Singles Scene

We move on to the Albums. Of Course we begin with those which did not make the #PlatVnyl6 Pool.

Missing The Mark

  • Alex Faith & Dre Murray - Southern Lights: Overexposed 3.75 Emeralds
  • Amy Grant - Be Still and Know: Hymns And Faith 3.75 Emeralds
  • Steve Green - 20th Century Masters: The Millennium Collection 3.75 Emeralds
  • New Hope Christian College - New Hope Christian College 3.75 Emeralds
  • Various - Little Boy Soundtrack 
Officially, all of these releases are very good, just missing the #PlatVnyl6 pool by a hair. Unofficially, however, very rarely has a nominee gotten in with a 4.50 Emerald score. Usually the minimum bar is 4.75 Emeralds, sometimes it has been all Perfect.
Next is the Perfect ones. Or as we call it here:

Pure Platinum Perfection

With only three Perfect Albums this month, I hopefully see the Candy Store as having reduced hours at the very least.

Semi-Precious Metal

Caught up. On to the May edition. Until then, I am Awaiting Your Reply.
