The Acne Records Breakout 2004 compilation CD showcases 17 original songs in various sub-genres of pop/rock. Featuring nine different musical acts, the CD contains original music in the styles of modern rock, alternative, pop/punk, power pop, soft rock, techno, and lo-fi dance pop. The featured acts on Breakout 2004 range from radio-friendly acts such as Robert Cooper to more left-of-center artists like Dream Alone and Intergalactic Funk Cowboy. The compilation contains the novelty song 'I Went To School With Elizabeth Hurley' by Trevor John, who really did go to school with her. The songs 'Weird' and 'Girls Want It' by crazed outlook are earlier versions from when the band still used a drum machine (check out their debut album Crazed Out, which was recorded with live drums). Breakout 2004 is a fun album that takes you through twists and turns into a journey that you won't forget.
