The first truly great release of 2021 comes from non other than "bedroom producer" legend, Lapalux. Been a fan since Nostalchic and have followed his every move since. Not everything he does appeals to me, but the core emotions he puts forth are always interesting - gorgeous melancholia teetering on despair, never fully siding with either.

The final song of an album is one of the most important things to it. To make you feel satisfied, an album closer has to look at everything an album has done and say, "Hey, how am I going to make a satisfying ending to this story?"

It takes a lot of talent for an artist to wrap up their own piece of work effectively and make a listener feel satisfied.

Which leads me to my question: what is your favorite album closer/finale of all time and why?
