she wants to get to heaven

EDIT: to keep this on topic, here's my full Top 7. Why 7? Because I only bought 7 2004 albums.

1) Manic Street Preachers - Lifeblood
2) Ash - Meltdown
3) Franz Ferdinand - Franz Ferdinand
4) U2 - How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb
5) Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - Abbatoir Blues/The Lyre Of Orpheus
6) Sondre Lerche - Two Way Monologue
7) The Streets - A Grand Don't Come For Free

- Franz Ferdinand - Franz Ferdinand
- The Killers - Hot Fuss
- Morrissey - You are the quarry
- Social Distortion - Sex, Love and rock 'n' roll
- Keane - Hopes and fears (was that this year?)

American Idiot, by far. I'm not even sure if HTDAAB will top it. It's just a totaly revival of Green Day's music and such a powerful statement on America today. Even if the politics turn someone off, the songs themselves are excellent, in tune, sound and everything.

From A Basement On the Hill by Elliott Smith is also really good.

I liked French Kicks- 'Trial of the Century' (i think it came out this year) a lot. 'Smile' was great of course. I expect U2's 'Atomic Bomb' to be unmatched album of the year though.

And I predict the best album of next year to be Trail of Dead's 'World's Apart'- I saw them play new stuff live in Philadelphia with two drummers and it was amazing.

Haven't listened to U2 and Nick Cave albums yet. Off the top of my head:

Franz Ferdinand - Franz Ferdinand
PJ Harvey - Uh Huh Her
Lisa Gerrard & Patrick Cassidy - Immortal Memory
Loretta Lynn - Van Lear Rose
Streets - A Grand Don't Come For Free

Amy Winehouse - Frank (a 2003 release that I only caught up with this year)

Some good lists here

Mine's a mess, albums moving up and down all the time.

01. The Streets - A Grand Don't Come For Free
02. Modest Mouse - Good News For People Who Love Bad News
03. Elliott Smith - From A Basement On The Hill
04. Brian Wilson - SMiLE
05. Beastie Boys - To The 5 Boroughs
06. TV On The Radio - Desparate Youths, Blood Thirsty Babes
07. !!! - Louden Up Now
08. Polyphonic Spree - Together We're Heavy
09. Snow Patrol - Final Straw
10. U2 - How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb

The Streets are definatly #1, places 2-4 are always changing (though I think Modest Mouse is settling into #2), and the other 6 spots are always changing.

Keane offered no lastability, it's a good album, but I haven't listened to it for about 6 months. Wilco's album is patchy but still good, Franz Ferdinand also offered no lastibility for me, Prodigy's was alright but patchy, Interpol was good and may make the end of year list, and The Music's album was not bad either.
