    Directions: Rank Katatonia's 11 albums. Order and number each album 1-11. Ties are OK. Your first place album earns 11 points, your second place album earns 10 points, etc.

    Rules:
    • You may rank as few as 6 albums. Lists with less than 6 albums will not be counted.
    • If you list less than 11 albums, the first placed album will still get 11 points, the last placed album will still get 1 point, and the albums in between will have points distributed proportionately. The average points earned for albums that are not listed will not be impacted positively or negatively, so if you don't rank an album, you neither help it or hurt it.
    • If you don't number your list then it will be assumed that it is in ranked order
    At the end, the albums will be ranked based on their average number of points per vote.

    You have until Friday, July 10th at 5:00 PM PST to finalize your list, re-familiarize yourself albums you haven’t heard in awhile, familiarize yourself with albums you haven’t heard at all, lobby for any albums you think are underrated, and lobby against any albums you think are overrated.

    Dance of December Souls (1993)
    Brave Murder Day (1996)
    Discouraged Ones (1998)
    Tonight's Decision (1999)
    Last Fair Deal Gone Down (2001)
    Viva Emptiness (2003)
    The Great Cold Distance (2006)
    Night is the New Day (2009)
    Dead End Kings (2012)
    The Fall of Hearts (2016)
    City Burials (2020)

    Dethroned and Uncrowned is a compilation and shouldn't be included.

    OK so this is bugging the hell out of me, but I'm listening to Dance of December Souls and at about 6:25 in Velvet Thorns there's a melody that sounds just like a contemporary pop song but I don't know what it's called. Can anyone else place it?

    Anyway, so I am obviously a sucker for new and old Katatonia, but not so much the middle period where they were transitioning their sound:

    1. Night is the New Day
    2. The Great Cold Distance
    3. The Fall of Hearts
    4. Brave Murder Day
    5. Viva Emptiness
    6. Dead End Kings
    7. Dance of December Souls
    8. Tonight's Decision
    9. Last Fair Deal Gone Down
    10. City Burials
    11. Discouraged Ones

    I can't think of really any other band where my 1 and 2 sound so different---maybe only bergtatt and perdition city)

    1. Last Fair Deal Gone Down
    2. Brave Murder Day
    3. Tonight's Decision
    4. Dance of December Souls
    5. Viva Emptiness (so many great songs)
    6. The Great Cold Distance (last great album--with the bonus tracks might be above Viva)
    7. Discouraged Ones (could be higher depending on mood--a difficult one to assess)
    9. Night is the New Day
    10. The Fall of Hearts
    11. Dead End Kings
