Tripwire Staff Picks '04, See You Next Year





To commemorate the final Tripwire Daily Newsletter of '04, we've decided to give you a chance to peer deeply into our hearts and minds by revealing the top 5 album choices from each of our regular writers. Below you'll find the albums that touched us in that very special place and reminded us why we got into this business in the first place. We'd like to thank all of you for spending time on our site, putting up with us when we piss you off and for helping to make the Tripwire the valuable resource it has become. In our ongoing quest to take over the world, we have some big plans for the site that will be revealed throughout 2005.


Have a great holiday season. Be safe, have fun and enjoy the time off. See you next year.
