Co-produced, engineered and mixed by David Castillo the album is both clear and strong with every instrument afforded the depth and clarity they deserve while never allowing Jonas’ voice (surely their strongest asset) to get lost in the mix. Put simply, ‘night is the new day’ is a staggering achievement in terms of production, song-writing and even art work. It towers over much of the opposition with scant regard for what is in vogue and, in doing so, they have made a timeless masterpiece which will undoubtedly still be revered for years hence. Katatonia have never been a disappointing band, but here they are light years ahead of their previous works. Stunning on every level.”
