Thread: Albums where the BEST song is the LAST song!

  1. #1

    Default Albums where the BEST song is the LAST song!

    Dumb idea for a thread perhaps.....but in my experience most albums are front-loaded with most of the great songs being early in the tracklisting.

    Just curious what albums you guys think are out there where the best song on the album is the very LAST one. I always thought this was a great way to end an album and make a statement and leave a strong impression on the listener.

    A few off the top of my head.....

    Nirvana: In Utero - All Apologies
    Radiohead: The Bends - Street Spirit
    Sigur Ros: () - Untitled #8
    Muse: Black Holes and Revelations - Knights of Cydonia
    Weezer: Blue Album - Only in Dreams

    Bjork: Homogenic - All Is Full of Love

    Perhaps tied with a couple others as "best" in that album.

    does Nirvana Unplugged count? "Where Did You Sleep Last Night"

    Without being pissy about some of the other selections, I'll just add some of my own:

    Liars : Drum's Not Dead - The Other Side of Mt. Heart Attack
    Presets : Apocalypso - Anywhere (and this is saying something because I really love every god damn track)
    Depeche Mode : Violator - Clean (ditto)
    Scorpions : Love at First Sting - Still Loving You
    Sigur Rós : Takk... - Heysátan

    IDK. What's your favorite..."Aluminum", "Expecting", "I'm finding it Harder to be a Gentleman" or are you more the "Dead Leaves Dirty Ground", "Union Forever" type fella? I just love the way that "This Protector" closes out the album. How many people are living out there in West Virgina?

    Someone is probably going to disagree with me on this, but:
