Currently giving The Fall of Hearts my 100th or so listen as of learning of it's release. This one may potentially be one of if not the best album Katatonia has put out. It's perfect in every way.

Katatonia doesn't get enough credit for being so consistent. "The Fall of Hearts" is excellent, perhaps their best since "The Great Cold Distance", but I wouldn't call it one of my absolute favourites.

Discouraged Ones and Viva Emptiness are my favourites but damn The Fall of Hearts fits nicely in third spot.

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.

It was awesome to see them live on Thursday. 2 hours and a great set. Glad plenty got played from The Great Cold Distance.
The Fall of Hearts is officially my album of 2016 now. It is that damn good.
