...on any given day,any of the following could be my favourite release from 2004. so in no particular order ::

isis panopticon :: if there is a better fusion of what godspeed your black emperor were doing and metal out there,i've not heard it. i am a sucker for the loud soft,loud soft style and will continue to be til i die. isis do it extremely well and on this release aaron turner has started to sing and not just roar.this is without a doubt the album i have listened to the most this year from the time in the summer i grabbed it off of 5l5k ,then purchased the limited personalised edition [w/t-shirt] from the hydrahead site. ...such a fanboy!

susannah and the magical orchestra list of lights and buoys :: from norway,this album is unlike anything else i have heard on the rune grammofon label.not unlike julee cruise and the *floating into the night* album she did with lynch and badalamenti. her vocals on the cover of dolly parton's jolene break/melt my heart every time.

the delays faded seaside glamour:: well,not having heard of this group until reading the rub and pauls end of the year list this cd really knocked me for a loop. firstly grabbing it off of 5oul5eek i was immediately struck by the vocals. i have to admit upon further research i was amazed that it is not a female vocalist. never thought a guy could sound so otherworldly. of course i had to grab it on cd and have steadily grown to love this album. the first three songs alone are worthy of a reason to purchase,but i would now include 8 of the 12 tracks among my favourites from this year. outstanding! is it just me or does aimee mann come to the mind of others listening to satellites lost?

the concretes - the concretes :: after reading a review on the parasol site about this band i had never heard of i took a chance a grabbed it off of them. again another scandinavian group that just know how to write great pop hooks. why this was not huge i will never even try to understand.

mastodon - leviathan :: after all the great end of year press this band is now recieving surely there has been enough written about them. if you really miss when metallica mattered to you,this band will fill that void.

....will write more about several other discs that grabbed my ear at a later date.

np:: the delays....

...little bit tardy getting my best of list together,although i already tipped my hand to my favourite. luckily i have read a few top release lists to jog my memory. a person that enjoys the amazing race, i am still bemused over lena&kristy getting elimenated last week.just unbelievable what horrible luck they had in unrolling about 100 bales of hay and not finding the clue. amazing the places these contestants get to visit though.

now enjoying::
