    I don't think you'll find anyone disagreeing with that, but are you saying it's their best opener?

    Yeah...probably right. When they are writing though, I wonder if they know "that's our closer" or do they decide track listing after they have the batch done?

    I don't know about that. I just realized while checking all the openers and closers that there's not many openers in my favorites of their respective albums, while there are a good portion of closers that are.

    I would assume with Beggars, Disarmed and Pines as soon as they were written it was known those would be closers.

    The others I could see being put else where on the albums so who knows their process. This is the type of stuff I wish interviewers would ask instead of the same old questions.

    No I’d need longer to pick their best opener but it’s not that

    I can’t actually pick between Red Sky, Beyond The Pines or Beggars and I totally agree that they are better closers.

    Beggars is such a great set closer that when they played it midway through on their last tour, I turned to my group and asked if the show was ending already lol

    So which song is the most well liked between these few:

    Image of the Invisable
    The Grey
    Blood in the Sand
    All That’s Left

    All were singles or early releases

    I'd say Salt and Shadow probably was written as a closer. The Alchemy Index's four closers were definitely written as closers.

    Disarmed is great too. It was band closure at the time because they seemed to have a had a break in mind before major/minor was released.

    They were all sonnets written in the same keynof I remember right. I am not sure what key that is they because I didn’t take piano as a kid

    "Numbness engulfs truth, let bygones be bygones"

    I really like them all to varying degrees but I'd say The Grey is my favorite of those 4.

    Out of that group, I like All That's Left the most. Then Image>Grey>Blood

    I am not good with technical aspects like keys, but they are all sonnets written impersonating the corresponding element so they were definitely written as closers.

    based on how this thread gets i don't even know if i'd recommend it but, have we thrice-bracketed yet? did i miss that?

    haha yeah it was a good one. Earth Will Shake won and For Miles got knocked out early on so it was a bust though.

    Yeah, I ran the bracket in the Fall of 2017. I could do a mini bracket for Palms though. (Not in this thread)

    Pines wins it though right? Going up against either Just Breathe or Everything Belongs?
