Revisionism: Year End List (2004)

It's Christmas, so no write-ups. Just know that I'm actually not all that disgusted by my original list for 2004 - that being said, there are zero carry-overs from my original list to my revised. Also, number 1 really shouldn't be all that surprising.


10. Kelly Clarkson - Breakaway
9. Mewithoutyou - Catch For Us the Foxes
8. Mutemath - Reset EP
7. Halo 2 Soundtrack
6. Project 86 - Songs to Burn Your Bridges By
5. Lostprophets - Start Something
4. Falling Up - Crashings
3. Incubus - A Crow Left of the Murder
2. Skillet - Collide
1. Relient K - Mmhmm


10. The Hives - Tyrannosaurus Hives
9. Green Day - American Idiot
8. Viva Voce - The Heat Can Melt Your Brain
7. P.O.S. - Ipecac Neat
6. My Chemical Romance - Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge
5. MF Doom - MM.. Food
4. Further Seems Forever - Hide Nothing
3. Sum 41 - Chuck
2. Jimmy Eat World - Futures
1. The Arcade Fire - Funeral

Funeral is epic. That's really the only thing that needs to be said. Merry Christmas, everyone.


  1. Speaking of bands falling off the planet, Falling Up AND Lostprophets went from 'really promising' to 'absolute suck' before you could sneeze. I think Mmhmm, outside of Be My Escape, is a pretty big fail for a band who could have kicked anyone around after Two Lefts.. annnnnnnd... I love Hide Nothing. I listened that CD to death and it's still great, top to bottom, every track just as awesome as the one before it.


    Isn't it great to reminisce?!

  2. I really liked 'Mmhmm' for a few months after I heard it. It felt (at the time) like the next logical step for the band to follow. It hasn't really aged all that well.

    ...and yes, Hide Nothing is fantastic, it still gets quite a bit of play these days, something that can't be said about a lot of the albums I've listed over the past couple days.
