3 Doors Down - When I'm Gone Ataris - Boys of Summer (Don Henley cover) Avril Lavigne - I'm With You Beck - Lost Cause Black Eyed Peas - Shut Up Christina Aguilera - Beautiful Coldplay - The Scientist The Darkness - I Believe in a Thing Called Love Electric six - Album: Fire - Danger! High Voltage (Les Rythmes Digitales Remix) - Electric Demons in Love - I'm the Bomb - Synthesizer Evanescence - Bring Me to Life Jet - Are You Gonna Be My Girl? Matthew Good - Weapon Missy Elliot - Gossip Talk Music, The - Take the Long Road and Walk It Mogilny - Album: Mogilny - Technotronique - Moins Fort N.E.R.D. - Provider Outkast - Hey Ya Sam Roberts - Brother Down Stone Sour - Bother t.A.T.u. - How Soon Is Now (The Smiths cover) Three Days Grace - (I Hate) Everything About You White Stripes - Seven Nation ArmyI gave extra points for being different, which is why Missy Elliot got on there and The Darkness (who seem to be doing some kind of 80's hair-band parody... You've got to see the video). Electric Six's Fire is definately my fav album of the year. I'm surprised that 2 cover songs made it onto the list. Brother Down made it's full-length album debut this year...I think.. it's hard to figure these things out now that Amazon destroyed CDNow : P That makes only 5 of the songs Canadian, I think : (.

Best Newcomer (Here and Now): Electric Six – ... you just have to hear their album. Insane. I don't think they can make a second album, though.. How do you top this without being too absurd?
Best Newcomer (To Keep an Eye On): The Music – Made some good music, but they still have room to grow.
Most Anticipated Album that Wasn't Released: Fiona Apple's new album was supposed to come out in September, but she put it off until 2004 to work on it more.
Biggest Disappointment: Radiohead's Hail to the Thief – What happened to our OK Computer/Kid A Radiohead? This album is just boring... Mind you, I saw them live and the songs from this album are awesome live.
