When I bought this, God knows how long ago (must be at least 6 years ago), I was thinking I was buying an album by a different band. When I gave this a listen I was shocked, not only because I was expecting a different band - forgive me, I was a lot younger then - but by how moody the songs were and how 'disconnected' the music and lyrics could make one feel. I grew to fall in love with this band and their music quickly, and this album has since become one of my favourites, without a doubt. I wouldn't call it metal, but not exactly soft rock. There's a very even, very fine balance between the two. Amazing stuff, sorrowfully beautiful, deep and meaningful. Such well crafted music.
If you feel alone, enjoy the poetic and moving lyrics of this fanastic album, you'll find you're not the only one. The music won't knock your head off with technical wizardry or jaw dropping shredding, but it will create an atmosphere to drown in it's isolated bliss.

isn't it strange how intensive a record is able to touch you? with melancholic melodies, deep moving vocals and a gloomy sound an album can be something like a drug... you always want more of it.

and that is exactly what "last fair deal gone down" offers to you. by listening to it you have to open yourself and so the record will and show you a part of its unbelievable beauty. the songs are simply overwhelming. you find yourself lying on your bed, absolutely drowned in the wonderful tunes the tracks give to you. renkse and nyström created a record which displays a mirror, reflecting all the devastated feelings you ever had in your entire life regardless of the reason why you had those feelings.

the lyrics are fantastic, as crestfallen as lyrics can be, sober and clear but never lack emotions or a little shine of hope.

"my prospects have become less promising,

i find it hard to believe in anything,

seems i lost my world and so i lost my faith,

and i can't go back to where i've been"

the melodies are lovely, the rhythm guitars are strong, the effects are well chosen and the whole album is a treasure. recommended to everyone who loves ... music

[Updated June 2013] - Despite their conistently high standards, in my opinion, this underrated album remains Katatonia's magnus opum. It represents the culmination, or maturity, of a sound they explored in the Discouraged Ones and Tonight's Decision. By contrast, Viva Emptiness, was transitional and, perhaps, a hint of the more technical, polished and progressive sound that was to follow. The albumn is strong across the board (Sulfur and Oh How i Enjoy the Light, originally B-side tracks, are outstanding and would ease its way into most bands greatest hits compilations) and each track takes you on a different musical journey. We Will Bury You has an immediacy and an urgency that grips in a similar way to, say, The Doors' Break on Through (to the Other Side). Other songs build more slowly upon you. Sweet Nurse has the catchiness of a "hit" without compromising in terms of subtely and emotional depth. Dispossesion and Teargas are also among the most popular songs but my personal highlights are the majestically evocative I Transpire (at once, surreal and ethereal) and the deeply moving Tonight's Music which, i believe, is Katatonia's very own "Stairway to Heaven".

The lyrics are mostly effective but it is the other musical elements which stand out. I think bands like Katatonia demonstrate the importance to understand and "feel" the unspoken words - the music itself. And, in terms of sheer emotional expression and depth, LFDGD is arguably without parallel. It is an outstanding team effort ably led by Renske whose tortured but clean vocals, at this point, still bear a close resemblance to Robert Smith of The Cure. Renske switched from growling to clean vocals several years earlier, in the Discouraged Ones.

The influence of gothic folk artist Will Oldham (Palace Music) is clear.

I really was'nt expecting this, as their last release Tonights Decision lacked that special something for me. I've been a big fan of Katatonia over the years, from the days of heavier doom/death in the form of Dance Of December Souls, Funerals To Come and there simplistic death metal style on Brave Murder Day (not forgetting EPs, etc inbetween).
When their style changed direction with the more melancholic, clean vocals (introduced on the track Day on BMD) on Discourged Ones, I was suprised but thought it was an amazing album and a definate 'grower'. They seemed to be unable to do no wrong in my eyes (or ears), till TD, it just did'nt have the staying power on my stereo that all their other releases had managed. Then I bought Last Fair Deal Gone Down.......a masterpiece, though oddly not that far removed in style from TD!? Its, for the want of a better word, 'catchy', tracks like Sweet Nurse being hummed to over and over and The Future Of Speech becoming a firm favourite. There is more melody in the songs, though still a good injection of the heaviness expected from a Peaceville signed act (see tracks like Don't Tell A Soul), and I personally think they blow their label mates Opeth clear out of the water (even the Blackwater....Ha!). Through their metamorphis in past years Katatonia remain a firm favourite in my collection, showing a definate love for what they do in their music. I can't wait to hear what they come up with next! Till I do though, I'll be kept very happy with LFDGD.
