Powerful Closers

In alphabetical order (band-wise) my most powerful (moving, emotional, creepy, etc) album closers
1 Air
The Virgin Suicides

Suicide Underground - One of the saddest things ive ever heard. Just a man describing the suicides of innocent sisters with little music in the background. The last line "Calling them out of those rooms where they went to be alone for all time. Alone in suicide, which is deeper than death, and where we will never find the pieces to put them back together" sends chills down my spine.
2Arcade Fire
Neon Bible

My Body Is A Cage - Starts off so simple and cold, and ends triumphantly, with organs blaring and the whole band chanting. Easily arcade fires best song.
3 The Blood Brothers
...Burn, Piano Island, Burn

The Shame - After the main bulk of the song, the singer starts singing the same 4 lines over and over, with the music building tension. Just when you think its going to break loose, the song randomly cuts off. Some might call it a buzzkill, but i think it makes it very strong.
4Explosions In The Sky
The Earth Is Not A Cold Dead Place

Your Hand In Mine - One of my favorite songs ever. Guitars twinkle and intertwine beautifully, and every note has power. Indescribable.
5The Fall Of Troy

The songs seems to fade away at a certain point, and just when you think the swirling mix of feedback and effects will end the album, you're hit with the best part of the album.
Morning View

Aqueous Transmission - Very relaxing song, makes me feel like im in the wilderness. I love how it fades out into the sound of frogs. When i listen to this song on top of a mountain (something me and friends do) the song fades into frogs, and you cant tell when it ends because the frogs blend with the surrounding crickets so well.
7 Liars
Drums Not Dead

The Other Side Of Mt. Heart Attack - A simple song, to end a very disorienting and creepy album. The contrast makes it all the better.
8The Mars Volta
Frances The Mute

Cassandra Gemini - Amazing song, not only because theres so much of it. When the vocals come rushing back in after the 20 minute bridge, you can almost feel the mars volta becoming one of your favorite bands. Afterward, its all sucked away as the acoustic "sarcophagi" comes in and brings the album full circle. Amazing
Blood Mountain

Pendulous Skin - It gives you you an almost expected intro in the vein of leviathans "joseph merrick", but then washes it all away in a multitude of reverb laden, distant guitars and vocals. The solo provides the perfect climax to the album, and the fact that the vocals are indecipherable just makes it more mysterious.
10Queens Of The Stone Age
Songs For The Deaf

Another acoustic song on a metal album! Rather than lift you into dreamville, though, this one talks about being eaten alive. The song itself is very triumphant, but the lyrics leave you with a feeling of unrest. And the 12 string riff is amazing.
Kid A

Motion Picture Soundtrack - This song is so warm and at home, yet very melancholy, and lyrically, depressing. The song seems to be about dying "i will see you in the next life". 2 minutes after the songs over, what seems to be a glimpse of heaven comes into the song, and then silence again.
12 Sigur Ros
( )

Untitled 8 - The first half is like the rest of the album, slow and bland (not in a bad way). About midway through the song, it gets frightening. Tension builds up as jonsi croons. The tension builds and builds, and jonsi is still crooning, unchanged. It all breaks loose, and soon youre left with a smoldering head of feedback. You hear a click, and the albums over. An insane song, and the greatest thing ive ever seen live.

Third Eye - For the most part, a very trippy song about drugs. The music is very calm and subdued. Out of nowhere you get punched in the face with screams of "PRYING OPEN MY THIRD EYE" over and over. The type of song that makes you wanna bash your face into the walls (at least at that one part)
