Buzzcocks - Different kind of tension
I know they reformed with other drummers, but I consider this the last LP from the most musically successful line up

Concrete Blonde - Mojave (am hoping they RE-reunite and do another, but if they don't, they certainly left on a high note)
Led Zeppelin - In Through The Out Door (or CODA, if you count that as an album; both of these get slammed regularly but I enjoy them)
Queen - Innuendo (not their best, but a fitting finale)
Beatles - I will second "Let It Be"
John Lennon - Double Fantasy (would've been better as Single Fantasy, ie, no Yoko, but still a solid listen)
Pink Floyd - The Final Cut
Roger Waters - Amused to Death

Posted on Aug 1, 2012 11:32:50 AM PDT

I'll second The Beatles Let It Be and The Final Cut (last Floyd w/Rog)

Rare Goat:
I am not trying to argue with you here, but rather to pose a question.
Since Civilization Phase III was only the first of many, many posthumously released Zappa albums, how can we know which is the "last"?

If you mean final albums, I nominate:

#1-Bridge Over Troubled Water-Simon & Garfunkel

Others tied for #2:

Time Well Wasted-Freddy Jones Band
Ghost on A Canvas-Glen Campbell
Far From Home-Traffic
Double Fantasy-John Lennon
In Step-SRV and Double Trouble (Final release while still alive)

I'm certain I'm overlooking some.

All the best to everyone tonight,

GT

George Harrison - Brainwashed

The Beatles - Abbey Road (this is really their last album, not Let It Be though that one is pretty good too, at least the Naked version is)
Outside of that I can really find no one whose last album was truly exceptional though some had really great albums before a major member departed, such as:
Badfinger - Wish You Were Here (last released album w/Pete Ham; last album w/Ham and Joey Molland)
Raspberries - Side 3 (last album w/Dave Smalley and Jim Bonfanti)
The Who - Who Are You (last album w/Keith Moon)
Jefferson Airplane - Volunteers (last album w/Marty Balin and Spencer Dryden)
The Allman Brothers Band - Live at Fillmore East (last complete album w/Duane Allman; Eat a Peach which has him on most of the tracks is also excellent)
Pretenders II (last album w/James Honeyman-Scott)
and every album by King Crimson in the 60s and 70s because the lineup changed every time.

Man, I was going to add some stuff, but I think you guys got them all covered! Perhaps My Bloody Valentine's "Loveless," incase the new one never ends up coming out ;)

Famous Last Words by Supertramp was the last record that Roger Hodgson played on and as the band went on and made records after Roger left Supertramp became another band. Famous Last Words is a wonderful record and my favorite from the band.
