5.0 out of 5 stars Best. Album. Ever. November 17, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I've listened to this album to the point where the 'catchiness' has completely worn off and I'm left with nothing but a total fascination that any handful of people could create something so deeply emotive with such stunning musicianship. I've listened to this album all the way through more than eighty times so far. I can't say I've listened to ANY CD in my collection for anywhere close to that. This is what music is all about.
Every song is excellent. Not only that, but the flow of the album is perfect. You can't help but go from one song to the next. You just can't skip any song. Few bands know how to create a perfect flow on an album and fewer still have the humility enough to throw out perfectly good material just because those songs couldn't keep the right flow to the album - and if you've heard the two songs on the Teargas EP, you'll know that they threw out some excellent songs.
I have tried, but cannot categorize this album. It seems to draw on traditional rock music while adding the best elements of newer rock. Their songs seem totally familiar and catchy, while still seeming totally ground breaking and fresh. The melodies are beautiful, but left-of-center with their off key touches at just the right places to create very vivid emotions. You almost won't notice it, but you will feel it. They are as heavy and oppressive as many metal bands, but strangely, they don't seem at all metal. I could swear they're on the verge of inventing a new style of music.
This should be in every music lover's collection. Peaceville placed a sticker on the front of the digipack that proclaimed it "the best Peaceville album ever" and I don't think it says enough. It is simply the best album I've ever heard.

5.0 out of 5 stars For those depressed August 10, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is one of those albums that has always been at the top of my list since it came out two or three years ago. Katatonia appeals to fans of Opeth, though I find them totally different. They're both really good in the melody department, but Katatonia is quite a bit simpler, and doesn't lean toward extreme metal like Opeth does.
Katatonia's album previous to this, Tonight's Decision (another great one), was more stripped down. It's sound was heavy, and you can tell they were using simple power chords for the most part. Here, though, the sound is big and airy. If you didn't know they were a metal band, you might not pick up that it's a metal album. Don't get me wrong, it is still doomy and heavy, but again, in a kind of weird, airy way.
The heaviness is most evident in the lyrics and the overall mood of the album. Goes well with Amorphis, Anathema, Tool, and Opeth's Damnation album. If this "heavy in mood" music appeals to you, I recommend you check out Dead Can Dance's "Spleen and Ideal" and "Within the Realm of a Dying Sun," along with the first couple Cocteau Twins albums.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thick with atmosphere and melancholy July 19, 2006
Format:Audio CD
It is highly likely that the title for this album may have been inspired by a song of blues god Robert Johnson who provided endless inspiration to early rock icons, including Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry, Jimmy Page, and Eric Clapton. Though musically Last Fair Deal Gone Down bears little to no resemblance to Johnson, the Katatonia guys have always been interested in blues, particularly during their stoner rock period. A prime example of the genre, Last Fair Deal Gone Down not only marks the breakthrough of Katatonia, but it is also arguably their most important release post-Brave Murder Day. Blending the band's melancholic roots with their new-found interest in modern darkness, the album is also the first disc the band produced by themselves.

Upon its release, Last Fair Deal Gone Down was Katatonia's thickest and most layered work to date. It would be safe to say this is the album where Katatonia found their true self. Vocalist Jonas Renkse provides his finest vocal performance, delivering the depressing lyrics convincingly and making the listener believe. Guitarist Nystrom opts for a wider scope of songwriting, unafraid to delve into all kinds of genres, from rock to pop to progressive. Gone are the band's earlier doom metal leanings; this disc sees the band turning their face to other inspirations, including the Cure, Tool, and even Porcupine Tree. The album was originally intended for a Steven Wilson signature production; however, Renkse and Nystrom later decided to handle the work on their own with stunning results. That said, there are still some subtle Porcupine Tree-like moments on the album, such as "Chrome" and the epic "The Future of Speech", both featuring processed vocals alternating between Renkse's more direct and clean delivery.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ahhhh...they nailed it with this album June 13, 2001
By B. Frey
Format:Audio CD
Katatonia started taking a new direction of sound with the release of Discouraged Ones. In my review of that album, I had a hard time pinpointing what I liked about it and where it failed, but there were definately some things going on in that recording that I really liked. With this album, Katatonia really capitalized on the strengths of their newest style of sound. Once again, though, I find it hard to pin down exactly why, but I listen to them frequently, and though their music is relatively simple and even repetitive, I never tire of it. Heavy, droning guitar riffs overlaid with ghostly guitar solos and dreary yet melodic clean vocal melodies somehow stick in my head all day after I listen to them. Even though it's a riduculously easy musical formula, Katatonia have really made this sound their own. The vocals are much improved over "Discouraged.."; man, this guy sounds so freakin' depressed! Every note sounds like he's singing at his mom's funeral or something; lonely, anxious, sad, painful. But all this gloom and doom is wrapped up in songs that I could dare to call "catchy". A couple songs, like "Teargas" and especially "Sweet Nurse" (my personal fav) sound almost radio worthy. I am reluctant to give this 5 stars only because it isn't terribly original or complex, and a couple songs are pretty bland. But don't let that stop form scoring this. It's worth it for all those other good songs.
