Day 8 – Perfectly closes an album


The natural companion to yesterday’s song, closing an album is important firstly so that a lasting impression of the album is left in the listener’s mind after it has reached its conclusion, and also to give a sense of finality that lazy bands who think the second half of an album is for filler and filler alone cannot hope to acheive. It has a very important role to play, and as an opening track is the birth of an album, so the last track is the death. And death is so much more exciting than birth, don’t you think?

Bon Iver – Re: Stacks

Moby called this the best song of the 00s. This is all the reason you need for my selection.

About Alex Pavitt
I work in the field of emotion. My tools are instinctual feelings and my laptop is the medium between my brain and the outside world. I deconstruct and rebuild. I imagine. I steal other people's lyrics because somtimes, my own words aren't enough. I spend all of my time somewhere inside my head. I worship Douglas Adams, and in the back of my mind I am always painfully aware that I will never be as good as him or, for that matter, anybody else.
