The Greatest Closers Ever

The second part of my first list, the best album closers of all time in order.(in my humble opinion)
1Nine Inch Nails
The Downward Spiral


Hurt- The track is amazing, a complete masterpiece. It takes me to another world with every listen, the effortless piano in the chorus conveys so much emotion, it is one of the few songs to make me cry and is the greatest ending track of all time.
2Deftones
Saturday Night Wrist


Riviere- An indescribable beauty. The sweetly sung passages by Chino, to the soft strumming holds down this as a truly magnificent track.
3Smashing Pumpkins
Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness


Farewell And Goodnight- Farewell And Goodnight is the most soothing and calm ending ever. It feels like lying at a beach at midnight, feeling completely at peace.
4Nine Inch Nails
Year Zero


Zero Sum- This is an ending unlike any other. The desolate and destroyed feel of an earth ending is present, but the wonderful chorus shows how there's optimism, an awe-inspiring track.
5The Beatles
Revolver


Tomorrow Never Knows- Although the band is over-rated, Tomorrow Never Knows is unlike anything they've ever done. A truly awesome track that is so abstract and different then any other Beatles song.
6Thrice
Vheissu


Red Sky- The song transforms from an truly crummy, defeated feel, to a truly magnificent ending, Dustin's croons near the end are breath-taking.
7Nine Inch Nails
With Teeth


Right Where It Belongs- An absolutely depressing feel, with some of the saddest yet brilliant lyrics ever.
8Depeche Mode
Playing The Angel


The Darkest Star- Shifting from lightly stroking a mellow keyboard to give an eclectic feel to smashing the keys for an apocalyptic, terrifying feel. The song is one the most emotional and oddly violent finales ever.
9Muse
Black Holes And Revelations


Knights Of Cydonia- A truly epic song that's final moments leave me speechless. Certainly a way to go out with a bang.
10AFI
Sing The Sorrow


This Time Imperfect- The bonus song on the album is also one of the best. It feels like it's in a different dimension.
11Radiohead
The Bends


Street Spirit- A deep, depressing song with one of the greatest choruses ever, a very sad ending to a somewhat happy album.
12Mastodon
Leviathan


Joseph Merrick- This is nothing I'd expect at the end of Leviathan, this is a sad and chilling acoustic ballad, but a very original one. A lot of sad, but not cliche sadness is transmitted.
13The Acorn
Glory Hope Mountain


Lullaby- A beautiful and warm song, the female guest vocalist's voice matched the title.
14Gorillaz
Demon Days


Demon Days- One of the most expansive songs I've heard, from the strings to the church choir singing.
15Arcade Fire
Funeral


In The Backseat- A very sad ending to a sad album, the final vocal solo at the end sends shivers down my spine.
16Pink Floyd
Wish You Were Here


Shine On You Crazy Diamond(Part One)- The spectacular finish to the remarkable album, the jazz breakdown is a tremendous part of the song.
17Thrice
The Alchemy Index: Vols. I and II...


Kings Upon The Main- Thrice outdo themselves with this wonderful ending to the water index.
18Death Cab For Cutie
Transatlanticism


A Lack Of Color- I am impressed with Death Cab's of turning a simple structured song into something so moving, and A Lack Of Color ends off it's album terrifically.
19Foo Fighters
In Your Honor


Razor- This is definitely an above average Foo Fighters song, I can feel the sense of desperation and loneliness in the song. The lyrics are quite superb.
20King Crimson
In The Court Of The Crimson King


In The Court Of The Crimson King- A long song that's chorus has been remembered for decades, this is King Crimson at it's best.
21Radiohead
Hail To The Thief


A Wolf At The Door- a definitely original song, something that I normally would find to just be odd, but Radiohead are able to convey some hearty emotion in the song.
22Muse
Origin Of Symmetry


Megalomania- A sweetly played song that is a low-beat finale to a up-beat album. The final organ smash is a perfect ending to the song.
23Incubus
Morning View


Aqueous Transmission- The absolutely flowing and peaceful ender fills the 7 minutes with ease.
24Rage Against The Machine
Rage Against The Machine


Freedom- Freedom is a loud, animalistic song where the band is at their finest.
25Radiohead
In Rainbows


Videotape- The simple and depressing song ends the ups and downs if In Rainbows well.
26Linkin Park
Reanimation


KRWLNG- I realize this is Linkin Park, but the remix of Crawling is likely their best song, the violin beginning and re-structured chorus blows the original out of the water.
27Pink Floyd
Animals


Pigs On The Wing(Part Two)- Just as Part One began the album, Part Two ends it, the small but effective acoustic song serves up some good emotion in its only 1:25 length.
28Nine Inch Nails
The Slip


Demon Seed- It is very rare for Nine Inch Nails to end their albums off with a bang, but this up-beat electronica themed song is definitely not something I would expect.
29Nightwish
Once


Higher Then Hope- The nicely sung verse to the powerful and dark chorus just show how well Nightwish can perform.
30Radiohead
Ok Computer


The Tourist- A very relaxed, slowed down album to close off the masterpiece of OK Computer.
31Protest The Hero
Kezia


A Plateful Of Our Dead- The song wouldn't have had a spot on here if it hadn't been for the absolutely excellent and sad acoustic balladry at the end of the song.
32Led Zeppelin
Led Zeppelin I


How Many More Times- Easily the best song on the album, How Many More Times starts in with a great bass pattern with some refreshing effects poured over-top.
33Interpol
Our Love To Admire


The Lighthouse- A very interesting, un-conventional closer to the lack-luster album.
34Radiohead
Kid A


Motion Picture Soundtrack- An incredibly connected and well done ballad that is in the same vein as the trip hop inventiveness of the album.
35Coldplay
Viva La Vida


Death And All His Friends- A peaceful song that grows into a finale of chanting makes this song great.
36Massive Attack
Mezzanine


(Exchange)- A very tripped out and mixed up version of the previous track on the album, the addition of vocals give this album a fitting end.
37Mute Math
Mute Math


Stall Out- Mute Math bust out everything they have to end off with this epic, powerful song.
38The Mars Volta
Frances The Mute


Cassandra Geminni: E. Sarcophagi- Ending the album with the acoustic ballad that had begun it. A cool choice and a fitting end for this amazing and recurring album.
39Faith No More
The Real Thing


Edge Of The World- A piano led song that is somewhat jazzy, and is a good example of the chameleons that Faith No More are.
40Queens Of The Stone Age
Era Vulgaris


Run Pig Run- very sarcastic and has a bit of satire in it, much like the whole album.
