Slant and Rolling Stone Magazine's Top Albums of 04'

Slant's top 10 Albums

1. Green Day-American Idiot
2. The Cardigans-Long Gone Before Daylight
3. Carina Round-The Disconnection
4. Brandy-Afrodisiac
5. The Killers-Hot Fuss
6. The Streets-A Grand Don't Come for Free
7. Madvillain-Madvillainy
8. Magnet-On Your Side
9. Blondie-The Curse of Blondie
10. Jem-Finally Woken





For an R&B album inspired by such a disparate array of sources (from samples of Iron Maiden, Hans Zimmer, Janis Ian, and, most notably, Coldplay), the influence of Brandy's Afrodisiac seems to be coming full-circle. "There's so much going on, you can't hear them with your conscious; you have to hear her voice with your subconscious," John Frusciante said of the album's vocal arrangements in a recent issue of Filter Magazine, "Noise in a pop context is such a beautiful thing to see." Afrodisiac is a devastating yet confident break-up album ("Nothing's picture perfect/Looks can be deceiving," Brandy sings on the opening track, perhaps hinting at the now-public knowledge that her first marriage was a sham). The singer suffered another break-up—this time with her record label—shortly after the release of Afrodisiac, which doesn't bode well for the shelf-life of this extraordinarily personal, often heart-wrenching R&B record.

Brandy
Afrodesiac

Atlantic

Creative cuts overseen by Timbaland, Kanye West and Organized Noize, compelling autobiographical content and a classy overall tone make Brandy's fourth album not only her best but also the year's outstanding female R&B disc. Note to rock fans: Check out her two Coldplay references and Iron Maiden sample.

I cant give any credibility to a list that has Green Day, of all people, at #1. And I can remember that Cardigans album being one we played a lot on our summer holiday - in 2003.

Yep, but the Cardigans album came out this year in America, Jon.

It's not really Rolling Stone's fault on this one. A lot of the albums that come out in Europe you have to wait for up to a year for them to be released in the States, unless you want to buy an import. Same thing with movies, that's why I only saw 'Dogville' this past May.
