Best Albums of 2004

Music list created by Stehako Avatar

This list was created by and in the opinion of Stephen H Koontz

Created in February 2005
Updated in December 2023

A rare year where a hip hop album didn't even break the top ten. What happened to the genre?
2004 ushered in a new era of music for me. Perhaps it is the lack of quality of hip hop or it's the increase in singer-songwriter types. The year was also a good one for soundtracks and yet another dominant year from The Black Keys, who are quickly becoming one of my favorite bands.
