Albums with good outro tracks

Got a lot of good recs and rediscoveries from the intros list. Now for the flip side of the coin: good (effective) outro tracks! Please include song name, artist name, and album name in your submissions. If it's not a conventional outro track, you may include an explanation in your submission. I'll start it out with a few:
1J Dilla

"Donuts (Intro)"
One in a Million

"Came To Give Love (Outro)"
3Bell Witch

4of Montreal
The Gay Parade

"The Gay Parade Outro" - ArsMoriendi
5Trophy Scars
Holy Vacants

"Nyctophobia" - Pangea
Hurry Up, We're Dreaming

"Outro" - Pangea
7Million Dead
Harmony No Harmony

"Harmony No Harmony" - porcupinetheater
El Cielo

"The Canyon Behind Her" - Emim; EclipseInYourEyes

'"The Canyon Behind Her" is something between a classic closer and an outro. El Cielo is a concept album built around a painting by Dali ("Dream Caused by the Flight of a Bee...") and everything comes together in this song to an amazing finish. You may compare it to NIN - Hurt albumclosingwise.'

"Player's Ball (Reprise)" - Flashmobba
10Saint Pepsi
Hit Vibes

"Outro" - robertsona
11 The Toy Dolls
Anniversary Anthems

"We're 21 Today" - ReturnToRock
'Technically, it comes after the outro, but it's a short blast of fun-punk that serves as the perfect way to close the anniversary-themed fun-punk record it's a part of.'
12Five Pointe O

"Aspire, Inspire" - ReturnToRock
'Yes, it's 12 minutes long - but it's clearly a cool-down track to allow the listener to chill out from all the abrasiveness that came before it - which is one of the functions an outro can have. Besides, there's no set rule on how long an outro can be, anyway.'
13The Beatles
Abbey Road

"The End" - ReturnToRock

"2000 & Gone" - JohnnyoftheOutro
15Yo La Tengo
And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside...

"Night Falls On Hoboken" - JohnnyoftheOutro
Serotonin II

"Veil of Darkness" - JohnnyoftheOutro
17Kyary Pamyu Pamyu
Pamyu Pamyu Revolution

"Chan Chaka Chan Chan" - JohnnyoftheOutro

"Time" - JohnnyoftheOutro
The Thing Which Solomon Overlooked

The thread updates which normaloctagon overlooked

"pretty much every Boris album closer ever recorded" - JohnnyoftheOutro; porcupineoutro
20La Dispute
Somewhere at the Bottom of the River Between Vega and Altair

"Nobody, Not Even The Rain" - GreyShadow
An Evil Heat

"Shine" - porcupinetheater
'Doesn't scream "outro" at first blush, the thing's a half hour and change monolith, but also departs a fair bit from the sound of the rest of the record into visceral instrumental soundscapes, like the record tearing itself apart. After everything that came before, it feels like the only way the record could've possible ended - tearing itself to pieces in spectacular fashion.'
Welcome to Sky Valley

"Lick Doo" - BenThatsMyJamin

"Endless, Nameless" - porcupinetheater
'Best Nirvana song, nestled as a hidden track on the end of Something in the Way'
Ashes Against the Grain

'Our Fortress Is Burning... III - The Grain' - Elynna
My Arms, Your Hearse

"Epilogue" - BenThatsMyJamin
26The Notorious B.I.G.
Ready to Die

"Suicidal Thoughts" - Wildcardbitchesss

"Fin" - JakeStallion
28Jimmy Eat World

"23" - JakeStallion
29Jimmy Eat World

"Goodbye Sky Harbor" - JakeStallion
Ridin' Dirty

"Outro" - NeroCorleone
31The Dillinger Escape Plan

"Dissociation" - EclipseInYourEyes

"I was just listening to The Dillinger Escape Plan - Dissociation and boy, the t/t works so well as an outro. Not only because it closes the album perfectly, more because it is the perfect track to close a history, an era. The fact that they only played this song live one time - as the closing track of their last live show - makes it even better. but maybe it is just the context, that makes this track so amazing"
