Default music ends

Why Do Some Songs Fade Out At The End and some other songs have a proper end? like the ff 13 albums, i understand that they loop in the game, but still some songs have a real end on the soundtrack.

A lot of composers tend to compose both with the soundtrack album and in-game implementation in mind nowadays. If they don't, it loops and fades out. If they do, you get an in-game version and a soundtrack arrangement.

I think the OP is asking more why some songs end and others fade out within the same soundtrack. In addition to the above, I would say that even on an album where all the looped songs fade out, cutscenes tend to be a finite length, so those songs will end on the album the way they do in the cutscene, resulting in an album where not all of the songs fade out.

I'm well aware that the OP is talking about songs within the same soundtrack. And let's say I'm a little more familiar than the average person w.r.t FF13's soundtracks. :P
