Discouraged Ones is the third full-length album by Katatonia. While most of the band's previous efforts included distorted or screamed vocals, Discouraged Ones, and all of the band's subsequent releases, feature exclusively clean vocals, by Jonas Renkse.

The album was generally well received by critics. AllMusic praised the diverse and layered sound production on the album, concluding that "With its various parts, ever-shifting dynamics, and blazing instrumental interludes, it sends the set off with a nearly majestic bang. Dead End Kings is uncompromising in its musical excellence, bleak vision, and dark, hunted beauty; it extends Katatonia's reach exponentially. [5] Kyle Ward, staff reviewer from Sputnik Music , strongly praised the album for being the perfect culmination of everything the band had strived to become after moving away from their original death metal sound in the late 1990s, citing the albums high production values, layered sound and "emotional sincerity" for the album being a "massive success".
