Best Albums of 2004. We Continue
I’m sensing a backlash against the ‘best of 2004 list’ list, but for the sake of completeness, documentation, history, obsessive compulsive tendencies, or just because, we continue.
We start with Mystery & Misery’s list. Let me just say that this man has good taste 😉
Next comes Tale of Two Cities whose list is brought to you once again in haiku format.
Tiny Mix Tapes posted their top 25 albums and it looks like they agree 100% with Pitchfork that Animal Collective is #2 and Arcade Fire is #1. In fact, they agree on a lot, sort of…TMT thinks Xiu Xiu is way better than 50.
Drowned in Sound has their year end polls which ranks the Killers at #2 on staff picks and Arcade Fire no where in sight (until you get to the reader list).(via rock and roll report)
Kevin Macneil Brown of Dusted looks back at 2004.
Alexander Provan of Dusted offers highlights, lowlights – the year in Fear.
Verbose Coma comes in with five picks (note the backlash in this one)
the magic carpet came back to blogging for a second to declare the Killers overhyped.
And Friends and Enemies has got 22 picks for best album.
