Katatonia : Last Fair Deal Gone Down



Throughout the years, much has changed in Katatonia's work. What didn't change, is their ability to write good music. 'Last Fair Deal Gone Down' is another fine album of simple, yet moving music so typical for this Swedish outfit.

Based on the first listen, the sound does not differ from the last full-length. A closer inspection reveals that the sound is more based on keyboards, although the tandem of Nyström's and Norrman's guitars are traditionally the foundation of the songs. The sound is a bit less depressive altogether, but nevertheless 'Last Fair Deal Gone Down' is one hundred percent Katatonia.

Songs that stand out are the almost radio friendly 'Teargas', 'Disposession' and a personal favorite of mine, 'The Future of Speech'. Travis Smith's artwork is once again amazing, which also adds to the overall impression.

If you liked 'Discouraged Ones' or 'Tonight's Decision', this one will not disappoint.
