Five bands whose last album was the best

Super Creeps Austin Shows

The term Swan Song, a metaphor for a gesture or a final effort, is often used when the year comes to an end. It was actually a few months before New Year’s in October when veteran Boston batter named David Ortiz enjoyed his swan singing to play his final season with the Red Sox against the Cleveland Indians in the Division’s Division American League

A more appropriate use of the swan song occurs when it looks at the musicians to which it applies in a literal sense. For example, David Bowie recorded his swan song this year, an album called Black Star, released a few days before his death in January.

The album was well received by critics and fans, and track Dólar Días is one of the sweetest songs of his discography. Black star, however, pales in comparison to the best of Bowie’s albums. The 35 year old Scary Monsters and Super Creeps record is the best, with Hunky Dory 1972.

Seldom is the swan song of a group or artist the best album of his career, but several groups have made albums of the past that excelled all their previous songs. Here are five of these groups whose last album was the best in their catalog.

The Hoople Mott the Hoople

Guitarist and co-founder Mick Ralphs had left before this record, so singer Ian Hunter took sole control of Rock Quintet’s brilliance. Songs like Alice, from puppets and remove the stone made this last album the best of its impressive catalog.

His greatest success, since I’m not in love, Dreadlock Holiday and the things we do for love, preceded this album. However, all ten songs here could be pop hits, because unlike their other units, there are no rags on either side of the vinyl.

Dandy in the Underworld by T. Rex

The title track became an instant classic when, shortly after the album was released, the man in front of Marc Bolan died in a car accident.

Lost without loveliness

David Gates and his decision-making group had broken up in 1972, but thankfully, they met six years later. The title of the song became a great success, and the change of heart could be the best song about a man in a love triangle.

The good times of Monkees

Mickey Dolenz, who had an excellent voice at the age of sixty of the band, some how it sounds even better now. The dozen songs written here by a cast of all the stars, including the guys themselves, make this new collection of things better than any of the previous albums. These oldies as seat were certainly goodies but unlike this register, they were all a bit flawed. Even Davy Jones appears posthumously to sing love in Love Takes Love, a new song from a session in the sixties.
