Katatonia is one of those bands that you'll recognise immediately by their own distinct sound. It's great that they have found their own sound. I must admit that Discouraged Ones isn't their greatest work, though. Their latest album Viva Emptiness (2003) was quite good. Unfortunately, this album isn't that good.

Katatonia has two different styles on their albums... They have the 'heavier' death metal style and then they have the 'softer' melodic gothic rock style. This album belongs to the latter case and I'm fan of that style... But this album wasn't as good as I thought it would be. It wasn't a disappointment to me, but it just wasn't as good as the newer albums.

Although DO isn't bad album, it doesn't offer anything new... Maybe I have too high standards nowadays. Or maybe I've heard the albums in wrong order... If I had heard this album before the Viva Emptiness, maybe I could appreciate it more.
