The Last Track

June 16, 2019

I know it's less common than ever to listen to an album all the way through. We pick and choose our favorites, skipping around tracks while some get overlooked.
I still value an album that plays through as one piece, beginning to end. (Or front to back, as our parents used to say.) One you get a whole mood from as you listen,
really connecting with what the artist may have been thinking and feeling wile creating it.
I was thinking this morning about some of my favorite album closers.
Often overlooked, the last track usually takes a somber tone, lending to the finality of the album's ending.

Here are a few of my recent favorites:

Fall Out Boy- Bishop's Knife Trick (Mania)
Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness - Birthday Song (Zombies on Broadway)
Weezer- California Snow (Black Album)
twenty one pilots - Leave the City (Trench)
Panic! at the Disco - Dying in L.A. (Pray For The Wicked)
