Abbey Road

I had “Clockwork Angels” by Rush in my truck recently when it dawned on me that the Holy Triumvirate were able to do what not many rock bands were able to do,… call it a career with a memorably awesome album.

Sadly, the majority of swan song rock albums often pale in comparison to a band’s best works (Zeppelin, Genesis, The Who anyone?). But there are notable exceptions. Among them are below:

Rush with the aforementioned ”Clockwork Angels”,…

,…”The Battle of Los Angeles” by Rage against the Machine,…

,…The Beatles – ”Abbey Road” (yes, I’m aware “Let It Be” came out later but “Abbey Road” was the last album they recorded,…

,… ”Innuendo” by Queen,…

,…and Black Sabbath’s finale ”13”

How about you? What are your favorite swan song albums?
