    Not to mention the universal appeal of the lyrics therein...who hasn't felt those sentiments?

    Cool!

    I just ordered "Tonight's Decision"... which has lovely cover art!

    I'm a bit hesistant with "Discouraged Ones", however... I heard "Deadhouse" on the Century Media Identity 5 compilation and thought it to be rather boring... however... I'll give it another listen... and perhaps it's a weak track on the album...

    Actually, it's usually considered that albums strongest track. Many fans worship that album, but frankly, while I love it for what it is, I consider it to be the weakast modern Katatonia album.

    Maybe it's not for you. It does have a habit of growing though, so give it a chance.

    I mostly agree with this.

    "Discouraged Ones" is a very cool record, but clearly, IMO, the weakest of the "modern Katatonia".

    At times, the songs beging to sound 'the same'. The songwriting just isn't up to par with the next two releases.

    However, Progmetalfan, there are still some GREAT songs on it! My favs are "Stalemate" , "Gone" & "Last Resort". And there's a GODLY instrumental simply entitled "Instrumental"!!! ;)

    You are right Phyre.
    Therefore and for many other reasons too DO is the most honest record i've ever heard in my whole life.

    YES. For me it was a bit weird, after I got into one album, I liked the rest of them almost the minute I heard the songs.

    YES. Get it!
