I feel like musically they pull off a lot of interesting things on this record better than they had in the past. The electronics work better, its harmonically more interesting then anything they've put out in a long time, and Jonas I suppose is improving as a singer. But idk somehow doesn't do it for me, doesn't really command my attention outside of a few tracks like Lethean which rules.

"This a great album, but their best is Night Is The New Day for as much as a million reasons."

I can give 7 boring reasons to counter that.

As someone that still regularly listens to everything from JHVA Elohim Meth to Last Fair Deal Gone Down, this album is rancid. It has way too many keyboards, I could swear Jonah is using autotune on his vocals, the song structures are boring, the riffs are boring. This is just one horribly tedious slab of boring monotony. What happened to the band that wrote songs like I Am Nothing? They must be on too many antidepressants. This is lifeless, dull, and completely missing everything that made Katatonia good.

BTW, the best Katatonia album by far is Brave Murder Day. Second best is Tonight's Decision, third best is Discouraged Ones. They haven't released a good album since Last Fair Deal Gone Down. Night is the New Day was almost as boring as this one.

This album has way more life than Discouraged Ones.

Discouraged Ones is an album of depression. You can say that depression is lifeless, sure, but there's still MUCH more passion and emotion in Discouraged Ones.

There's no emotion in this new album. And man, the riffs are so dull. This is the same guy that wrote the amazing riffs in Black Erotica? This is the same guy that wrote the crazy Death's Design? What the fuck happened, Anders? Listen to too much KoRn? I know that as soon as Katatonia listed that they were listening to nu metal on their website, their music started turning to shit.
