Favorite Music of 2004

Unlike most 2004 music lists, this one isn’t limited to albums that were released during the year. Instead, it’s merely a list of the albums I listened to the most, the tunes that got me through my days, the songs that accompanied me on the bus ride home from work. I wouldn’t even call these the “best” albums of the year—just the ones that hit me the right way at the right time.

Broken Social Scene - Feel Good Lost
Hem - Rabbit Songs
Mindy Smith - One Moment More
Sufjan Stevens - Seven Swans
Tresspassers William - Different Stars
Teitur - Poetry & Aeroplanes
Ric Hordinski - When I Consider…
Polyphonic Spree - The Beginning Stages of…
Jem - Finally Woken

So that’s it—my very personal, highly subjective top nine list. Why only nine? Because I’m lazy. Tell me your favorites?

  1. Thanks for the inspiration, Karl. Let’s just make this a top ten list, shall we? Here’s mine…in order of importance:
    1. The Finn Brothers

  2. Great list, Michael. I probably should have put the Innocence Mission and U2 CDs on my list, too, as they get a lot of play in my iPod. You’ve also given me so good leads; I think I’ll be checking out the Finn Brothers and Daniel Lanois. On a side note, is it just me, or does Rufus Wainwright sound like a cross between Ron Sexsmith and John Lennon?

  3. Hmmm…hadn’t thought of Rufus that way before. I see what you mean. I’m just glad he doesn’t LOOK like a cross between Ron and John
