Nick Cave, Elliott Smith and Tom Waits named among the Best Music of 2004.

From Popmatters.com: 1. Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, Abattoir Blues/The Lyre of Orpheus (Anti-) Nick Cave's magnum opus, a thrilling pasticcio of magnanimous rock, pastoral folk, and wicked church music, covers more ground in two discs than most artists can in an entire career.
