2003 – The Year in Review
Our Favorite Albums, #’s 50-31
By Adam Lawrence and Matt Ashworth

Yeah, so 2004 is already a quarter over and you’ve already picked a couple nominees for “best of 2004.” You’re music junkies – otherwise you wouldn’t even be tuning in. And music junkies like LISTS. Which makes March a tough month.

So just when you’ve almost forgot how much you like debating the difference between the biases of the Blender and Spin contributors…. just when you’ve almost forgotten you cared which 2003 albums were the most memorable, comes NadaMucho.com’s 2003 Year in Review.

Unlike other publications, we don’t purport to know what’s what. After all, music is art and art is ultimately subjective. So what we did was cast our ballot to over 3000 individuals – fans, artists, bookers, label owners, readers and basically anyone who wanted to voice their opinions on the year’s best in music. Our music editors tallied the results, ran them through a series of high tech cross-checks for accuracy, and then changed everything to our liking. The results – at least #50 – #30 – are below.

The Jayhawks – Rainy Day Music
Stellastarr – Stellastarr
The Plains – On Earth as it is in Heaven
Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Fever to Tell
M. Ward – Transfiguration of Vincent
The Mistreaters – Playa Hated To The Fullest
The Postal Service – Give Up
I Can Lick Any Son Of A Bitch In The House – Put Here to Bleed
