    i honestly don't remember what exactly was 2004 or not anymore. i know my # 1 & 2's are emery & the spill canvas though. heavy music was really lacking anything special. sure, the new all that remains & shadows fall was good. but nothing groundbreaking. nothing like the step up the newer avenged sevenfold cd made in 2003.
    the straylight run cd is top 5 material, even if the songs were older.

    I wasnt too impressed with 2004 releases. The only ones that stand out are

    The Good Life - Album of the Year
    These Arms Are Snakes - This is Meant to Hurt You
    Mum - Summer Make Good
    The Album Leaf - A Safe Place
    Blonde Redhead - Misery is a Butterfly
    Jawbreaker - Dear You re-release on BlackBall Records
    Pig Destroyer - Terrifyer


    Dissapointments of 2004 include
    Engine Down - Self Titled
    Bright Eyes - both new albums
    Pedro The Lion - Achilles Heal (definitely not up to par with his other albums)
    Karate - Pockets (same as above)
    Q and not U - Power

    There were plenty of amazing metal releases this year, my favourites in no particular order:

    Isis - Panopticon
    Blut Aus Nord - The Work Which Transforms God
    Pig Destroyer - Terrifyer
    Drudkh - Autumn Aurora
    Deathspell Omega - Si Monumentum Requires, Circumspice
    Necrophagist - Epitaph

    Biggest disaapointment for me was the new DEP album, I liked it at first, but in retrospect its not a patch on there earlier material

    I kinda liked it, Of course it wasn't nearly as good as "the execution of all things" and "take offs and landings"

    the only bands there i listen to are mostodon & cult of luna. i'm not really into the rest. i may like it, but after being so dissapointed by the new dying fetus & miseryindex & stuff like that, i'm really hesitant to listen to heavy heavy stuff. i'm finding more salvation & origionality in stuff like the honorary title & say anything.

    & agree'd on the DEP cd. some songs are ok. but if i wanted to listen to old NIN, i would.

    worlds apart comes out next year,
    wilco a dissapointment... I totally disagree. It was nothing like Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, but that's fine with me. I wouldn't want a regurgitation of that anyway.
    And You Fail Me was a huge disappointment in my opinion. It really didn't come close to the intensity of Jane Doe. Yet, you really couldn't expect them to top Jane Doe. That album is just :bowdown: X 1000000
