It’s not easy to compile this years best of, none of the albums that ended up in my list categorizes as an album to remember forever, like let’s say “Nevermind” or “Moon Safari”, I hope 2004 brings us better music. Here it is anyway:

· Old Jerusalem – April
· The Strokes: Room on Fire
· Muse – Absolution
· Radiohead – Hail to the Thief
· Electric Six – Fire
· White Stripes – Elephant
· Black Rebel Motorcycle Club: Take Them On, On Your Own
· Goldfrapp – Black Cherry
· Massive Attack – 100th Window
· Blur – Think Tank

Runners up:

· Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Fever To Tell
· Mondo Generator – Drug Problem That Never Existed
· A Perfect Circle – Thirteenth Step
· Placebo – Sleeping With Ghosts
· Desert Sessions – Volume 9 & 10
· The Mars Volta – De-Loused in the Comatorium

And here’s my favourite movies of 2003, most of them were produced in 2002, but only release here in Portugal in 2003:

· The Hours
· Adaptation
· 25th Hour
· About Schmidt
· The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King
· Kill Bill
