Bowling For Music
To be sure, this is not the least bit scientific. And off the top of our sleepy heads we can name you half a dozen records which escaped mention. But still.

Below you will find the result of the first ever PopWherry Canadian Music Bloggers Year End Poll Thingy. Various online journallers (though surely some great ones were left out) were asked to submit their top five Canadian records of the 2004 calendar year. Points were awarded on a 11-8-6-4-2 system. Results were tabulated by us and our high school mathematics. First place votes are in parentheses. Drop us an e-mail with reports of any Ukraine-like voting irregularities.

The top results probably won't astound. But people love lists. So here ya go. Voters and non-voters: Use the opportunity to debate, justify your selections, tell us more about some of the lesser knowns for which you voted (we, for one, want to hear more about City Field) or plug the hidden gems we forgot.
