|Dark Tranquillity Closers|
A proper album closer can be a tricky thing to nail. Different enough from the previous material to finish it off memorably, but similar enough so it still fits in with the overall sound. Dark Tranquillity have a discography littered with impressive closers.
I adore this track, the ideal closer and an all time great.
...Of Melancholy Burning
An album that displays the perfect opener and the perfect closer.
The Mundane and the Magic
The track that best encaptures both sides of the DT sound.
At Loss for Words
Amazingly lush atmosphere that builds supremely to finish off an otherwise fairly straight-forward album.
Really like how this track grows and plays out.
We Are the Void
A fairly dull album improves towards the end, before closing out in stunning style.
Not usually a fan of instrumental closers, but the general mood and atmosphere of this track really solidifies the albums coherency.
On Your Time
Great track, but doesn't stand out quite enough from the rest of the album for me.
In Truth Divided
Probably the band's softest ever song. Sometimes it works beautifuly, others not so much.
Caves and Embers
Another decent track that doesn't really differentiate itself enough from the rest of the pack.
Haven't really heard this enough tbf, doesn't strike me as a classic closer tho.
The Mind's I
The Mind's Eye
As said before, instrumentals aren't the best for me. Feels like a lesser Mine Is The Grandeur, but without he immense payoff to follow.
