Stereogum’s Top Catorce Of 2004

By Stereogum / December 23, 2004

As usual I was unable to narrow down my favorite releases of the year to just ten. So here are Stereogum’s 14 favorite discs of 2004. To make it easier for myself, I arbitrarily disqualified compilations, reissues, and Brian Wilson. And for your listening enjoyment are links to a related remix/b-side/live cut/etc… for each entry on the list.
