Night Beat Rewind: June 2015

We have completed three quarters of the #PlatVnyl6 Eligibility Year. Soon we will be rolling out the announcements of the final nominees. But let's not rush things just yet. We still have one quarter to go. But first up we close out the third quarter of 2015 with the June edition of Night Beat Rewind.

There were no singles released in June, so we move on to our second section, those EP's and full albums which

Missed The Mark

  • Various Artists - Oceans: A Worship Experience 3.75 Emeralds
With only a single entry deemed to fall outside the pool this month it would seem that we are softening. Of course, we shall always see how many releases from the semi-precious metal section make it into the finals. We move on to the cream of the crop, or what we call

Pure Platinum Perfection

  • Lifehouse - Out of The Wasteland 5 Emeralds
  • NYVES - Anxiety 5 Emeralds
Another good sign is the presence of only two perfect albums this month. Things appear normal. Now we go to those releases in the middle, or as we call them here:

Semi Precious Metal

  • As One - As One 4.50 Emeralds
  • Attalus - Into The Sea 4.50 Emeralds
  • August Burns Red - Found In Far Away Places 4.75 Emeralds
  • Brad and Rebekah - All You'v Done 4.75 Emeralds
  • Dan Bremnes - Where The Light Is 4.75 Emeralds
  • David Dunn - Crystal Clear 4.75 Emeralds
  • Finding Favor - Reborn 4.75 Emeralds
  • Ghost Ship - Costly 4.50 Emeralds
  • Jonathan David and Melissa Helger - On The Shores 4.75 Emeralds
  • House of Peace - Into The Great Unknown 4.50 Emeralds
  • Kings Kaleidoscope - Live In Focus EP 4.75 Emeralds
  • Chris McClarney - Everything and Nothing Less (Live) 4.50 Emeralds
  • John Mark and Sarah McMillan - You Are The Avalanche 4.75 Emeralds
  • Onething Live - Shout Your Name 4.50 Emeralds
  • The Ongoing Concept - Handmade 4.50 Emeralds
  • Populis - EP 4.75 Emeralds
  • Matt Redman - Unbroken Praise 4.75 Emeralds
  • Marvin Sapp - You Shall Live 4.75 Emeralds
  • See The Rise - Exposures 4.75 Emeralds
  • Richard Smallwood - Anthology Live 4.50 Emeralds
  • Roy Tosh - Death Before Love 4.50 Emeralds
  • Various Artists - Four Blood Moons Original Motion Picture Soundtrack 4.50 Emeralds
  • Various Artists - Holy Hip Hop, Volume 19 4.75 Emeralds
  • Joy Williams - Venus 4.50 Emeralds
That finishes off June. Some of these releases I would have loved to rate higher, but they just didn't do it. Especially Joy Williams coming off the Civil Wars breakup. I will forgo links for now, but they will be updated soon. Until next time, I Am Awaiting Your Reply.
