First Katatonia Album

My first was DO, and it's been my favourite since, though with time it became tied with many experiences and sentiments, that listening to it is no longer a simple daily experience.

I would think it's best to start with either BMD or LFDGD, depending on the angle from which you approach the band.
I've got the Discouraged Ones as a gift at the same time with a cd which made a friend for me with songs from Dance Of December Souls & For Funerals To Come on it.

So I got both styles to knew ... I was really surprised but both of them caught my ... soul. But I think I like the "new style" a bit more...
