    A good closing track should embody the end of the relationship between the album and the listener, it should carry some sort of sad finality. Here are some closers that stood out to me with that in mind:

    Chelsea Wolfe - Lone (Pain is Beauty)
    Crystal Castles - Child I Will Hurt You (III)
    Deafheaven - The Pecan Tree (Sunbather)
    Have A Nice Life - Earthmover (Deathconsciousness)
    Jon Hopkins - Immunity (Immunity)
    Godspeed You! Black Emperor - Like Antennas to Heaven... (Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven)
    Marilyn Manson - Count to Six and Die (Holy Wood)
    Queens of the Stone Age - ...Like Clockwork (...Like Clockwork)
    Radiohead - Videotape (In Rainbows)
    Radiohead - Motion Picture Soundtrack (Kid A)
    Swans - To Be Kind (To Be Kind)

    I think people underestimate what PiL achieved in their career, even if he is a collosal prick these days, Lydon was never allowed to forget being in the Sex Pistols by critics.

    What a beautiful, haunting song to close This Is What You Want... This Is What You Get

    "the Serpent was more crafty than any beast of the field which
    the LORD god had made

    The fact that both of you mentioned that piece of crap, but didn't even come close to mentioning "Leaving Hope"? A pox on both your houses!

    I've probably listened to 10,000 albums in my lifetime. And there has arguably never been a simpler, more effective, and more beautiful way to end an album than this:
