I agree with you on the fact that they don't get nearly as much credit as they deserve. You're also right about the fact that they've been consistent for one, and they're consistently getting better and better. I don't think i've heard a Katatonia album that I hate, which is nice. However, I do disagree on your last point, but then again, that's all opinion with that one. I've not really had a lot of time with listening to Katatonia, so that's why I rate this album as highly on the list as I do. However, I will say that Dead End Kings and The Great Cold Distance are both fantastic albums.
