This Conversation Is Ending Starting Right Now is the third full-length album by the indie rock/emo band Knapsack.[4][5] It was released on September 8, 1998, on Alias Records, and re-released in 2014 by Poison City Records.

Critical reception[edit]

The Morning Call called the album "full of clever, hook-laden and emotional tunes."[4] Spin, in an article about undeservedly obscure bands, wrote that This Conversation Is Ending Starting Right Now is "a minor classic of twentysomething despair."[6] The A.V. Club thought that the album lacked the "desperate declarations" of Day Three of My New Life.[7]
