Cave Tops Mojo Albums List For 2004

NICK CAVE + THE BAD SEEDS' double album ABATOIR BLUES/THE LYRE OF ORPHEUS (corr) has topped respected British music magazine MOJO's Album of The Year list.

The Australian torch singer's album beat FRANZ FERDINAND's eponymous debut and SMILE by BRIAN WILSON to claim the top spot in the annual end-of-year list.

And Cave admits he's far from surprised by the honour, saying, "I haven't heard the other albums, but I suspect ours deserves to be number one. With this album, we knew that we had really good songs."

Meanwhile, Mojo writers also honoured THE WHITE STRIPES' UNDER BLACKPOOL LIGHTS as the DVD of The Year; the "rebirth of THE PIXIES" as the Live Event of The Year and THE FACES' FIVE GUYS WALK INTO A BAR... box set as the Reissue of The Year.

The full top 10 albums, according to Mojo writers are:

1. ABATOIR BLUES/THE LYRE OF ORPHEUS - NICK CAVE + THE BAD SEEDS

2. FRANZ FERDINAND - FRANZ FERDINAND

3. SMILE - BRIAN WILSON

4. REJOICING IN THE HANDS (OF THE GOLDEN EMPRESS)/NINO ROJO - DEVENDRA BANHART
