    I was replying to someones question about buying tonights decision and read the replies and it says this song is a cover. who did it first? and how good is the first one. and are all the lyrics the same.

    and im also curious... what bands do you think sound a lot like katatonia, and what other bands do you like as much or more? i need some new music ideas.


    my answer is that rapture sounds like katatonia. i dont like them as much though.

    Well, Jeff Buckley originally sang Nightmares By The Sea.

    If you want to find out other bands that sound like Katatonia, there has just been a thread made, its still around here somewhere, I think it is called "katatonic bands" or something like that....just look for it.

    Funny part is, I got into Jeff Buckley based on Katatonia's cover on Nightmares, even though they're lesser known artists.

    Sketches for My Sweetheart the Drunk is a worthwhile cd. Indeed he is brilliant.

    Yes Jeff Buckley is amazing, I was a fan long before Katatonia, and was very disappointed when I heard the Katatonia version of this song, it stopped me buying the album based on Jonas lack of vocal experience at the time, but alas, years later I have grown to accept the song in context with Tonight's Decision and now celebrate Katatonia's ode to Jeff!!!!!!!!

    Jeff Buckley sucks in comparison to Katatonia.

    In my opinion Katatonia cover sounds much better, despite the fact they respect the structure and even the essence (but sung by Mr Renkse, so vocally deeper). I mean, Katatonia have really improved a song by not changing any outstanding element of it.

    I don't agree with this statement, they have not made the song better, just made a good (although very similar) interpretation of it

    I re-listened last night, and decided it is a really good ode to one of their inspirations.

    I personally think the Katatonia version is much better than the Jeff Buckley version, but then again I've always had a strong dislike for Jeff Buckley so that may play into it somehow.

    hmm I love Jeff Buckley.
    The version of Katatonia is very good as well. Wished they played it at the Bierkeller MCR :)

    Btw if you want to hear another good song of Jeff Buckley (for the ones that don't know him.. not many I presume) listen to Grace. Brilliant!

    Whatever you do, do NOT check out Buckley's live album called Mystery White Boy something or other as it is one of the worst albums to ever get pressed. Pure and utter vocal wankery.
