"Before you know it as the years go by, you're just like other people you have seen, with all those peculiar human ailments. Just another vehicle for temper and vanity and rashness and all the rest. Who wants it? Who needs it? These things occupy the place where a man's soul should be." -- Henderson the Rain King

KEXP's Top 90.3 posted

KEXP has posted their list of the Top 90.3 Album of 2004 as voted on by KEXP listeners. Here's the Top 10:
  1. Arcade Fire - Funeral
  2. Modest Mouse - Good News For People Who Love Bad News
  3. Franz Ferdinand - Franz Ferdinand
  4. Interpol - Antics
  5. Snow Patrol - Final Straw
  6. Citizen Cope - The Clarence Greenwood Recordings
  7. Elliott Smith - From A Basement On The Hill
  8. Wilco - A Ghost Is Born
  9. Killers - Hot Fuss
  10. Tom Waits - Real Gone
I was bit surprised to see the Arcade Fire at #1, but I guess it makes some sense given all the recent hype they've been receiving and the fact that the album was recently released so it was probaby still fresh on everyone's minds. I also didn't expect to see Snow Patrol coming in at #5, but that's probably due to the fact that I had no idea that they'd sold over a million copies of their new album.

It's disappointing to see that the new Now It's Overhead album (my fave album of 2004) didn't make the list, but I wasn't overly surprised given that it hasn't received much air play.
