CentralVillage's Best of '04 Week (part 1)


Oh gimmicks...I figured it was a good week to run this stuff. So here we go. There's no rhyme or reason to this. I'm just gonna name my vaguely categorized favorite things from the last year.

Of course, I already have completed a top albums of the year list way back around the real deal New Year, but I thought I'd give it a Gregorian update for now. Here's what I had back then...

#20 The Magnetic Fields - I
#19 Hope of the States - The Lost Riots

#18 The Rapture - Echoes
#17 The Arcade Fire - Funeral

#16 The Strokes - Room on Fire
#15 The Fiery Furnaces - Blueberry Boat

#14 The Futureheads - The Futureheads
#13 Dogs Die in Hot Cars - Please Describe Yourself

#12 Feist - Let it Die
#11 The Shins - Chutes Too Narrow

#10 Murs - Murs 3:16
#9 Franz Ferdinand - Franz Ferdinand

#8 Death Cab For Cutie - Transatlanticism
#7 Scissor Sisters - Scissor Sisters

#6 The Killers - Hot Fuss
#5 RJD2 - Since Last We Spoke

#4 The Libertines - The Libertines
#3 Muse - Absolution
#2 Blonde Redhead - Misery is a Butterfly
#1 Rilo Kiley - More Adventurous


Of course, four of those albums were released at the end of 2003, so to make this easy I'll just take those guys out and add four more recent favorites albums to the list. They even seem to plug in to the vacant spots fairly well...

#20 The Magnetic Fields - I
#19 Hope of the States - The Lost Riots
#18 Ted Leo - Shake the Sheets
#17 The Arcade Fire - Funeral
#16 The Go Find - Miami
#15 The Fiery Furnaces - Blueberry Boat
#14 The Futureheads - The Futureheads
#13 Dogs Die in Hot Cars - Please Describe Yourself
#12 Feist - Let it Die
#11 The Go Team - Thunder Lightning Strike
#10 Murs - Murs 3:16
#9 Franz Ferdinand - Franz Ferdinand
#8 Interpol - Antics
#7 Scissor Sisters - Scissor Sisters
#6 The Killers - Hot Fuss
#5 RJD2 - Since Last We Spoke
#4 The Libertines - The Libertines
#3 Muse - Absolution
#2 Blonde Redhead - Misery is a Butterfly
#1 Rilo Kiley - More Adventurous

There, that was easy. Also a very special mention for The Kleptones - A night at the Hip-Hopera. I don't know how to rate it as an album, but it is surely one of the best things I've heard all year. You can download the whole thing for free at that link above.

As the week goes on, I'll get around to movies, live shows, books (Hah!) and whatever else seems worth mentioning. Till then...
