Same rules as in the Opening Tracks thread.

Here we go:

1. The Private Psychedelic Reel
2. Surface To Air
3. The Test
4. Alive Alone
5. The Pills Won't Help You Now (and necessarily Harpoons before it)
6. Wonders Of The Deep
7. Wide Open (actually i'd prefer The Crystal Method's Wide Open, but the thread is not about that :) )
8. Dream On

UPD: Wonders Of The Deep and Wide Open switched places.

Just as in the opening tracks thread, I'm excluding Wide Open, as I haven't got the album yet.

The reason i didnt do this thread after doing opening tracks was because i wasnt sure how i felt.  I absolutely love PPR, its right up there but in terms of closing an album, then perhaps others thing there are other tracks that close their albums better..so:
1. The Test - its so grand and is a lot longer than it seems and one of the best guest vocals ever
2. Wonders Of The Deep - it really feels like the end of the journey and further is their most complete journey
3. Alive Alone - someone should use this for the closing credits of a film and that bassline is just magnificent
4. The Private Psychedelic Reel. I know , i know but i feel like its ending isnt an ending, thats probably what they wanted, to leave us wanting more but its not as much of a full stop as some tracks, but i fucking love it but as closers go i dunno.  I would have preferred Where do i begin to be the closer tbh.
5. Wide Open - Beautiful
6. The Pills Won't Help You Now - I think they went for a big epic but didnt quite get there
7. Dream On. Tripped out etc but i always felt it was a weak track
8. Surface To Air - always ruined for me since they used an excerpt on Sky Sports News for ages before the album came out and when i heard a leaked copy i thought this track was a fake until it came out. They've done lots better

cue lots of people calling me a knobhead, probably





 ;D thought about deleting my last line now that you did that and then i thought, no thats a knobhead move. ;D

i guess i was hoping for a bit more discussion by putting PPR down the list but i think i was trying to look at the idea of the thread a bit differently.  And they have closed loads of gigs with PPR but i was just going off the fact that i still think the actual ending of it doesnt match the rest of it. But i know they did use I Am The Resurrection as a reference point and that has a similar ending and carries on whilst fading so i do get what they were about. 

knibhead

I completely agree about PPR, Chops.
I put it at the top of my list cause I do think it's the best song on the list, and one of their best overall, but judging it by it's quality as a closer, I think it does a decent job, but nothing special. The segue at the end of Where Do I Begin completely kills the mood and goes on for way too long. It just kinda bothers me every time I hear it, wishing the song would just go on for a little longer and have a proper end.
I think the best closer is a tie between The Test and Wonders of The Deep. They're both so big in scale, and they fit in so well with the theme of their respective albums. They tie the knot so well.
The devil is in the details

Well, now I've got the album and had a chance to hear Wide Open (many times over)
I'm still figuring it out, but I like it. It feels like something from WATN and I'm not sure why.  It builds really slowly, and while I like that, I think it could do with a bit more of a flair at the very end. Maybe I'm just missing it's sutble qualities and maybe it'll grow on me, but I do still quite like it.

That cracked me up!
To each his own, I guess. I don't think it sounds terrible, just that it doesn't end the song well.  :P
