Over the past decade, Chris Carrabba has turned his penchant for angsty soul-baring into a career, a quasi-religious practice and a genre. The emo godfather's sixth album proves he's also gotten better in that span. Ending is a return to full-bore rock after the mellow Shade of Poison Trees (2007), and songs like the raucous "New Morning" ooze craft. The surprise is the mood of uplift, songs that see good fortune looming. A hopeful emo album — alter the ending, indeed.
