Most slept on album of 2004?

Well, I don't know how this happened, but everyone seemed to miss Annie's excellent album Anniemal. Sheer classy pop, with Richard X and Royksopp behind the boards. So, what happened? Poor promotion? Pushed back release dates? Soft launch? Strange, as 679 recordings hyped her in the first six months of 2004, then probably decided to spend all their budget on pushing The Streets for a Mercury prize he was never going to get (I say probably as it's just my guess). Shame....f**king shame....

There's another single from the Anniemal coming out in December, perhaps in preparation for a 'hard' launch in January (this is what happened to Phoenix's Alphabetical earlier in the year. Didn't work though as it just wasn't as good as previous album United). I'm hoping this is the case, as quality pop like this is needed to put overhyped shit like Girls Aloud in perspective.

Oh, 679? Your site's pants too.
