|More Than A Year Later, Katatonia Rated.. Again|
My ratings of their stuff have really changed a lot in the past year.
The Great Cold Distance
Went from #4 to #1. Really has grown on me, mainly the second half. The first half I loved from the very beginning.
Keeps its place. This album is just generally awesome. And it has Walking by a Wire and Ghost of the Sun, 2 of my favorite Katatonia songs ever.
Night Is The New Day
It really got this high up after a good amount of listens. This grows on you like a fucking beanstalk. AotY of 2009 for me and stuff.
Well, went down by 1 place. But it had to happen. Still one of my favorites. I like the sound of it in general.
Last Fair Deal Gone Down
Heavily emotional. Went up by 1 place. I really like it, but when I compare it to the ones above it... I just can't place it higher, sorry.
Brave Murder Day
Ouch. This took a hit. From #1 to #6. I still love it, but their other albums grew on me and grew on me until this one was left behind. It still has a special place in my heart. But the other ones surpassed it slowly but surely.
Another one I'd like to love more but I just can't. Went up by 1 place though. It has some really good songs, but their other albums are just.. too good.
Dance of December Souls
Meh. I like this, but it's the only one that barely grew on me. It is good, but.. the other ones are really much better. Fell to last place for a reason.
|i would say 1, 3, 6, 2, 5, 7, 4, 8|
|Like last year, rating them was hard, their stuff is overall awesome.|
|For me Viva has the most resonant melodies. My next 3 are pretty even.|
I find the bleak atmosphere of Disc. Ones very effective (e.g. Saw You Drown)
Latest album is their most consistent but individual songs haven't stood out yet like my top 2.
Great Cold Distance has some excellent tracks but album not as consistent.
I really didn't like Tonight's Decision, found the vocals very weak.
Overall, I really like Katatonia and like you my order is bound to change.
|They are all pretty awesome albums, screw rating them.|
|lol no 7 is easily one of their best|
|are you going to see them on their New Night Over North America tour?|
