Is it too late for a best of 2004 list? Here are the ten best albums of 2004 with links to album reviews from Sound Design, the music review section of Be A Design Group.
1. The Black Keys, Rubber Factory
2. Cake, Pressure Chief
3. Rogue Wave, Out of the Shadow
4. Iron & Wine, Our Endless Numbered Days
5. Elliott Smith, From a Basement on a Hill
6. Modest Mouse, Good News for People Who Love Bad News
7. Sufjan Stevens, Seven Swans
8. Wilco, A Ghost is Born
9. Delgados, Universal Audio

“Best of” lists are fun because they always stir up some controversy. Feel free to correct my list and point out what I overlooked.
Be A Design Group tries to feature an album every week on Sound Design. In 2004 we hope to have an even broader selection of featured music with the recent addition of Eric Larson and Tim McMahan as Sound Design authors.
