No over-thinking, no spreadsheets, no calculations, just hit me with a top 3 for each topic on instinct alone.
Jungleland (Bruce Springsteen - Born To Run)
Judy And The Dream Of Horses (Belle & Sebastian - If You’re Feeling Sinister)
New York I Love You But You’re Bringing Me Down (LCD Soundsystem - Sound Of Silver)
Post the artist and album as well please.
Protomartyr - Half Sister (relatives in descent)
Sufjan - Impossible Soul (age of adz)
The Hotelier - Dendron (home, like noplace is there)
Two headed boy pt. 2 4th by a ballhair
Saved your ass with that edit there.
Broken Chairs by Built to Spill (Keep it Like a Secret)
Fin by Pavement (Brighten the Corners)
Street Spirit by Radiohead (The Bends)
Dendron (edited in - can’t believe I missed that) from Home Like No Place… by the Hotelier
Tsundoku from Hope Fading Nightly by Tellison
Leaving the Valley from Phoenix by Pedro the Lion
Serves me right for thinking you numbskulls could follow a simple instruction.
Ride – Vapour Trail (Nowhere)
Nas – It Ain’t Hard To Tell (Illmatic)
My Bloody Valentine – Soon (Loveless)
A Certain Romance - Arctic Monkeys
Home - LCD Soundsystem (Still think they had left with that and never done anything again it would have been amazing)
A Few Word For The Firing Squad - Run The Jewels (they actually do quite a good line in final album tracks tbf)
Whole New World/Pretend World (SOPHIE - Oil Of Every Pearl’s Un-Insides)
Good Morning Captain (Slint - Spiderland)
Does Not Suffice (Joanna Newsom - Have One On Me)
So many other answers I could give though…
Mew - Comforting Sounds
Sigur Ros - Untitled 8
MBV - Soon
Would’ve been Do You Know How To Waltz if not for the 50 second song after it
Nearly had this but couldn’t choose one of theirs between this, 505 and That’s Where You’re Wrong.
Weezer - Only in Dreams (Weezer)
Slint - Good Morning, Captain (Spiderland)
Deafheaven - The Pecan Tree (Sunbather)
A Certain Romance is the one but they are another lot that have amazing closing tracks. Jewellers Hand, don’t particularly have anything against I Wanna Be Yours, quite like the Ultracheese and Perfect Sense is probably the worst for being too short.
I Wanna Be Yours is tainted now by JCC being a bad 'un.
First three that came to mind after a quick scan through my top rated albums on RYM:
The The - Giant (Soul Mining)
Lloyd Cole and The Commotions - Are You Ready to Be Heartbroken? (Rattlesnakes)
The Wake - Here Comes Everybody (Here Comes Everybody)
Oh man this is HARD
I Know The End - Phoebe Bridgers, Punisher
Formation - Beyoncé, Lemonade
Just Another Name - Modern Baseball, Holy Ghost
