    The solo is sweet, gives me an Opeth-wibe.

    still, after some more listens: the song sounds like a b-side leftover from tgcd. better produced, heavier guitar sound - but still the same harmonies they used on their last album.

    and the chorus?
    ridiculous!! i can't hear any chorus, just a bridge ... and then? nothing at all.

    where are the mighty chorus parts they have written once before?

    the last good opener was dispossession by the way.
    ghost of the sun - was ok.
    leaders - was ok but boring
    forsaker - is boring

    just the opinion of a very disappointed katatonia fan. sorry that I can't find positive words.

    Yeah, their solos aren't so cold. That's why I firstly thought that the solo suits some other band.. And yep, Opeth. I totally agree.

    I like the fragment [3:16 - 3:18]. Someone's dying everytime I listen to it.

    I don't want a Katatonia solo to give me an Opeth-ish feeling. I want it to be a Katatonia solo. I can't believe how much I'm disappointed with everything about this song...

    Oh my, new Katatonia. I almost fainted.

    I've listened to it 8 times already and I'm liking it more and more. The vocals are o_O

    i disagree almost completely. it's a phantastic song with a fine subtle chorus. much better than Leaders and even better than Dispossession imo. i think it's almost as good as Ghost Of The Sun

    Maybe the conctruction of the song is not like: verse, bridge, chorus, verse, bridge, chorus - solo - chorus but hey, is that wrong? They cut out sth but I don't think it was because they made a music mistake.
    Omerta ends suddenly - it means something. I suppose, the construction of Forsaker means something as well?

    Calling it better than Dispossession is blasphemy :p

    Dispossession is one of my favourite songs. I don't think Forsaker is better... Stefan wrote it shorter. Agree.

    I like that the chorus is less catchy.

    I like catchy-Katatonia, but this time around i wouldn't mind something else.

    This time around? I don't find anything particularly catchy about TGCD.

    Does it have to be catchy to be good?

    No, but it doesn't hurt either. I think Katatonia is a band that needs a degree of catchiness though. That's when they're at their very best.

    yeah, this is katatonia, One step backwards unfortunately. I hope this is the "worst" track on the album. seriously, I had expect more from them. ...Kind of boring, nothing new.

    I don't find those anywhere near Teargas, My Sweat Nurse, Tonight's Music, Criminals or Evidence. I wasn't talking about B-sides either.
