Top 10 Releases of f 2004

Your votes for the 2004 The Phantom Tollbooth Top 10 albums (yes, we still call them albums!) are turned in, tabulated, and now reported. Monthly Top 10 readers will not be surprised that the most number of votes easily went to U2's latest project, How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb_ Four artists from last year's survey return. The "live" Over the Rhine clocks in at number three, and Starflyer 59's I Am the Portuguese Blues is in a tie for number ten, along with Neal Morse's One (hence, making this a "top 11" survey!). Bill Mallonee's Dear Life, is at number four. Of particular interest, Smile by Brian Wilson, planned for release over 35 years ago, registers at number eight--and there are plenty of dandy runners-up!
