i would argue that giant swan is probably the best blood brothers album closer out of any of their albums. i really don't see how the album loses steam during the second half. good review though.
It's a good closer, but I really like "The Shame" from BPIB. I saw that song performed live and from that moment on, it was my favorite closer. It's just such a massive ending and they went on repeating the last line for about 10 minutes instead of the usual 4 or so. It was awe inspiring.
