    in the first months of 2004 I thought, there are no great albums in sight anywhere, but nowadays there’s no need for that kind of pessimism, as there were pretty many great albums so far this year!

    my top 10 list of favourite 2004 albums is:

    Modest Mouse – Good News For People Who Love Bad News
    Sonic Youth – Sonic Nurse
    Blonde Redhead – Misery is a Butterfly
    The Thermals – Fuckin A
    Morrissey – You Are The Quarry
    Adam Green – Friends of Mine
    Mark Lanegan – Bubblegum
    The Stands – All Years Leaving
    Marjorie Fair – Self Help Serenade

    …other 2004 albums which crossed my way, where I’m still undecided if I like them:
    Wilco – A Ghost is Born
    Graham Coxon – Happiness In Magazines
    Robert Pollard – Fiction Man
    Lambchop – Aw C’mon / Now You C’mon
    Franz Ferdinand – Franz Ferdinand

    …and where I didn’t listen enough for a conclusion:
    Iron And Wine – Our Endless Numbered Days
    Jim White – Drill A Hole In That Substrate And Tell Me What You See
    Juliana Hatfield – In Exile Deo
    The Hives – Tyrannosaurus Hives
    The Secret Machines – Now Here Is Nowhere
