And here come the Best of 2004 lists. You started the mad rush, David.

Actually, other than Blender's list, I haven't seen any that looked ridiculous. Most seem to have been given a lot of good, solid thought. Though early in December, they don't look to have been rushed.

I wonder, though, why they come so early. U2 couldn't make many of these lists--not that it was going to in the first place. There are still a few albums to be released and a few imports to be heard.
