The Year That Was





2004.

Loud. Short. Fast. 2004 and saw the eagerly anticipated return of British rock act MUSE to return to our fair shores. Not only to play at the sold out national Big Day Out festival, but to tantilise fans with one side shows and then to return with full bombastic rock force for a national tour later this year. Full of visual imagery, techni-colour lights and their trademark balls, 2004 belonged to MUSE.

A little odd Icelandic woman with a powerful voice alerted the world that she was back with a vengence. Debuting on the world stage at the 2004 Olympic Games in Greece, Björk once again defied critics. Releasing essentially an a capella album, "Medúlla" took the world by storm. It had to be one of the greatest releases that surpassed all expectations and concern.

2004 was also known as the "comeback year" - with multiple artists "re-inventing" themseves to become relevant once again. Artists such as the juganute, Britney Spears, the pop-tastic Kylie Minogue [with the help of the brilliant Scissor Sisters], the one-hit wonder Destiny's Child [known as DC3] and the lesser-known and successful, Geri Halliwell [aka Ginger Spice from the defunct Spice Girls].

Not only was it a comeback year, but the most money made was not through CD sales, but touring. We saw Madonna take the crown [typical] of the highest-grossing touring artist with her trans-atlantic "re-INVENTION" tour - taking in US$ 125 million with 56 performances, which 55 were sold out. Prince came second, with Shania Twain ending the Top 3.

So what will hold for 2005? Well, definitely most of the artists featured on here will be releasing new material. However, I can say that I'm waiting with abaited breath for the Chemical Brothers, Daft Punk and Vivian Green albums. Till then, this site will return in February 2005.
