    2004 album pool-what have you picked up to choose from?

    Slow day-stupid and time consuming thread but nothing else seems to be happening so why not? With only a couple of months to go, what albums are you going to be picking from when selecting your best of 2004? This of course is only a y-t-d thread so rankings are neither expected nor encouraged (unless Slosh is ready to go, of course!).

    jc's 2004 CD’s so far:


    1. Air-Talkie Walkie
    2. Crystal Method-Legion Of Boom
    3. The Cure-s/t
    4. The National-Cherry Tree (ep)
    5. Ella Guru-First Album
    6. Morrissey-You Are The Quarry
    7. Stan Ridgway-Snakebit: Blacktop Ballads & Fugitive Songs
    8. Two Lone Swordsmen-From The Double Gone Chapel
    9. The Libertines- s/t
    10. The Mooney Suzuki-Alive And Amplified
    11. JuniorBoys-Last Exit
    12. Blonde Redhead-Misery Is A Butterfly
    13. Electrelane-Power Out
    14. Razorlight-Up All Night
    15. Snow Patrol-Final Straw
    16. The Killers-Hot Fuss
    17. Franz Ferdinand-s/t
    18. Interpol-Antics
    19. The Legends-Up Against The Legends
    20. Icon Of Coil-Machines Are Us
    21. De/Vision-Six Feet Underground
    22. Meow Meow-Snow Gas Bones
    23. Trashcan Sinatras-Weightlifting
    24. Fiery Furnaces-Blueberry Boat
    25. I Am The World Trade Center-The Cover Up
    26. The Faint-Wet From Birth
    27. Starsailor-Silence Is Easy
    28. Modest Mouse-Good News For People Who Love Bad News
    29. Mission Of Burma-Onoffon
    30. Secret Machines-Now Here Is Nowhere
    31. Xiu Xiu- Fabulous Muscles
    32. Lali Puna-Faking The Books
    33. Moonbabies-Orange Billboard
    34. West Indian Girl-s/t
    35. KVLR-s/t
    36. Headset-Space Settings
    37. Felix Da Housecat-Devon Dazzle And The Neon Fever
    38. Le Tigre-This Island
    39. The Orphins-Drowning Cupid

    Some good, some bad, certainly some ugly in there.

    We have a little overlap but you've heard a few more than me. I went ahead and pulled out a top 10, but some will surely go up and some will surely go down by the time I post it for real since I've barely listened to a couple that I can already tell are very good (such as the Joseph Arthur) and there's also a big group of about 6 or 7 that are all on the bubble and could easily move into the top 10 depending on my mood.

    Top 10...

    Moonbabies - The Orange Billboard**
    Pinback - Summer in Abaddon
    Arcade Fire - Funeral
    The National - Cherry Tree EP
    Old Canes - Early Morning Hymns
    The Fiery Furnaces - Blueberry Boat
    Devendra Banhart - Rejoicing In The Hands**
    Willard Grant Conspiracy - Regard the End
    Honeydogs - 10,000 Years
    Animal Collective - Sung Tongs


    The rest of the story ...

    Lali Puna - Faking The Books
    Franz Ferdinand - Franz Ferdinand**
    Electrelane - The Power Out
    Joseph Arthur - Our Shadows Will Remain**
    The Libertines**
    Junior Boys - Last Exit**
    The Legends - Up Against The Legends**
    Vetiver - Vetiver
    Giant Sand - Is All Over The Map
    Mark Lanegan Band - Bubblegum
    David Kilgour - Frozen Orange
    TV On The Radio - Desperate Youth, Blood Thirsty Babes
    The Court and Spark - Witch Season
    Richmond Fontaine - Post To Wire
    Carina Round - The Disconnection
    Ash - Meltdown**
    The Places - Call It Sleep
    Les Savy Fav - Inches
    Secret Machines - Now Here is Nowhere
    Mary Lou Lord - Baby Blue
    Modest Mouse - Good News for People Who Love Bad News
    Blonde Redhead - Misery Is A Butterfly
    Ghost - Hypnotic Underworld**

    I know you haven't had much, if any chance to listen to this, but once you do I'd be curious to learn if you can reconcile the glowing reviews of this album (and there are many) to the actual product. The second half really takes off for me but frankly I don't really know what's going on here.

    I'll post my list tonight, as my list of 2004 releases is on my home computer. At the beginning of the year I told myself I'd buy less this year so I could get to know the albums I bought better. That lasted about 2 weeks I think.
    And the world will turn to flowing pink vapor stew.

    Just wasted the last hour or so of my employers time trying to remember everything I've got from 2004, which turns out to be a ton by my standards, probably the most I can ever remember picking up in a single year. My wallet is very light and my wife not particularly happy about it, but it's been fun. May have to make 2 year-end CDs this year, one from vinyl and one from disc. Can't see myself picking up more than a couple more this year. Anyway, here's what I'm picking from this year...

    Prince – Musicology
    Beastie Boys – To the 5 Burroughs
    Lali Puna – Faking the Books
    The Hives - Tranasaurous Hives
    Social Distortion – Love, Sex, and Rock ‘n’ Roll
    Two Lone Swordsmen – From the Double Gone Chapel

    Neubaten – Perpetum Mobile
    Kanye West – College Dropout
    Cee Lo Green – Is the Soul Machine
    Blonde Redhead – Misery is a Butterfly
    The Cure
    Iron & Wine – Endless Numbered Days
    Bonnie “Prince” Billy – Sings Greatest Palace Songs

    McLusky – The Difference Between You and Me…
    Deadalus – Of Snowdonia
    Mum – Summer Make Good
    Tiger Army – Ghost Tigers Rise
    Reverend Horton Heat - Revival
    Wagon Christ - Sorry I Make You Lush
    RJD2 – Since We Last Spoke
    Diplo – Florida
    Libertines

    Nelly – Suit
    Talib Kweli – The Beautiful Struggle
    Air – Talkie Walkie
    Morrissey – You Are the Quarry

    Snow Patrol – Final Straw
    Interpol – Antics
    Franz Ferdinand
    Legends – Up Against the Legends
    Mooney Suzuki – Alive and amplified
    Felix Da Housecat-Devon Dazzle And The Neon Fever
    The Roots – Tipping Point
    Tom Waits – Real Gone
    Bjork – Medulla
    Dirty Dozen Brass Band – Funeral for a Friend
    Savath & Savalas - Apropa't
    Dizzee Rascal – Showtime

    Velvet Revolver
    Wilco – A Ghost is Born
    DJ Shadow: Live! In Tune and On Time
    The Streets – A Grand Don’t Come for Free
    Loretta Lynn – Van Lear Rose

    Lou Reed – Animal Serenade
    Telefon Tel Aviv – Map of What is Effortless
    Von Bondies – Pawn Shoppe Heart
    Martina Topley-Bird – Quixotic
    ISAN – Meet Next Life
    cLOUDDEAD – ten
    The Walkmen – Bows & Arrows

    I bolded the ones that stuck out as I was typing this up. I'm still not sure who would make the final 10. I may move up some I didn't highlight on another day etc...

    Wink A Shallow Pool, JC...

    I guess it's another year 3/4's done. Wow!!

    My list of 2004 releases that I'm very familiar with and enjoying on a regular spin cycle are as follows:

    Franz Ferdinand - S/T
    The Arcade Fire - Funeral
    Modest Mouse - Good News for People Who Love Bad News
    Dears - No Cities Left
    Loretta Lynn - Van Lear Rose
    Kanye West - The College Dropout
    Wilco - A Ghost Is Born
    Snow Patrol - Final Straw
    Fiery Furnaces - Blueberry Boat
    The Streets - A Grand Don't Come For Free
    Gomez - Split the Difference
    Mooney Suzuki – Alive & Amplified

    There are many I have, yet, to hear; and many more that will be released in the next six weeks that also look as if they'll add more water to my shallow pool's water level in 2004.

    Cheers,
    audiobill

    Hey, Stone.

    My list is bigger than your list... sing it. My list is bigger than your list... sing it. And we're all going straight to hell. He, he, he, he, just kidding.

    How could I have forgotten the Punk-rock opera of Green Day's "American Idiot" -- one of my faves of 2004. Doh.

    All of mine have been mentioned already except Rogue Wave - Out Of The Shadow which is fantastic. Highly recommended if you like the Shins (and I mean it )
    Also Earlimart - Treble & Tremble which is currently in my top three and may even snag the number one spot.

    Oh, I also have CD-Rs of Jim White - Drill A Hole In That Substrate And Tell Me What You See (which I will be purchasing ASAP) and Chris Whitley - War Crime Blues and that's pretty good as well but is too much like Dirt Floor and/or Weed so I feel no pressing need for a legit copy (hey, I wouldn't have bought it anyway so no sale lost).

    And . . . . Davey's not kidding about that Pinback album. I'm sure it's not for everyone here but it is for many, no doubt.

    NP: Rogue Wave - Out Of The Shadow

    Forgot one that I really like and that I'm listening to right now...Old Crow Medicine Show...

    Also forgot to mention the Necromantix and the Horrorpops.

    May have forgotten more. Damn, I spent way too much this year. Gonna have to cut down...or start making more money.

    What's really scary to me is there are still things I'd like to hear but haven't.

    Funny, this board has really gotten me excited about new music coming out again. I used to love new stuff, but had kinda settled on turning up maybe one or two new groups a year at most, and just spinning old favorites or older music I just never picked up the first time around. Or grabbing new releases by old standbys.

    Yeah, I made a little mention of it in that "return of the soap opera" thread but it doesn't do that much overall for me yet. I have a hard time getting past the drum machines, but they do take off once in a while into Notwist territory and almost all is forgiven. Except that it doesn't happen nearly often enough to keep my interest level up. I'll be giving it more spins to see what happens - so far I haven't given it more than two listens, and one was kind of distracted. I tend to agree with your assessment at this point, although I'm not liking it even that much.

    Gotta tell you though, you were right on target about the Calexico concert. Wow! Love it and it does sound great! Thanks a ton. Sloshy should download a copy of this or get his hands on it some way. Very nice.

    Not to be a pain in the can, but I really want to know

    A- How can you guys afford to buy so many CDs?

    B- Where do you find time to listen to and digest so many new CDs?

    C- Where do you find the time to listen to the 40 CDs you bought LAST year . . . and the year before, et al?

    D- where do you store them? The logistics of dealing with such a fast growing collection is staggering to me.

    I just can't imagine being able to stay on top of so much new music and still find time to take a shower, let alone actually work and spend tiome with my wife.

    I think I bought about 8-10 2004 CDs this year . . . a lot for me.

    Haven't heard yet, and could possibly make my list as a result: Joseph Arthur, TV on the Radio, Stan Ridgway, Frameshift, Pain of Salvation

    Already off the list: Helmet, Killers, Jack Dangers -- it's not that I don't like these,
    they are just guaranteed not to make my year-end favourites list.

    I wonder the same things!!! I think they are all very wealthy people on here. haha.
    It's too much.
    But I'm glad there is so much great stuff out there. I just need a filter. That's why I love it when they make comps!! KEXP is my main filter. The morning show is like a 4 hour long brilliant comp cd of all of my favorite music every weekday.

    Probably worthy of a seperate thread? I'm thinking -yes.

    A- I gots a cheap source locally.

    B- O. I'm 'posed to LISTEN to this stuff? I thought you hung them from the rear-view mirror.

    C- See B.

    D- See B.

    Cheap bathroom system means you can keep up with the hygiene and spin tunes. Cheap work system resolves the next issue. Got rid of the wife after years of hearing nothing but *****ing about the music I played. It was well worht it- anybody complains these days, and they get reminded of where the door is.

    I work hard.

    B- Where do you find time to listen to and digest so many new CDs?

    This is the big problem for me. I don't have the time to really digest everything, so by the end of the year I've typically really digested only a fraction of what I've got. But I do listen to everything and try to get to know as much as I can.

    C- Where do you find the time to listen to the 40 CDs you bought LAST year . . . and the year before, et al?

    Another problem. I try to listen to older CDs along with the newer ones. Kinda whatever I'm in the mood for or whatever someone happens to be talking about at the time.

    D- where do you store them? The logistics of dealing with such a fast growing collection is staggering to me.

    No wife anymore, which helps not only with the time aspect, but also with the spending aspect. My on-again-off-again girlfriend and I don't spend enough time together to really count.

    2004 albums

    This year I seem to have picked up more new releases than previous years, too much hanging around this site I guess.
