Seether - Finding Beauty In Negative Spaces
As some of you may remember I also reviewed Seether's previous  album Karma And Effect back in 2005. Ever since then I have always liked the album and although it may get a bit of the same when you listen to it too often, I was quite eager to find out that these guys had just released their new album about two months ago. So here we go again, another Seether album, this time with a, in my opinion, very nice title; Finding Beauty In Negative Spaces.
 
Just like Karma And Effect this CD has a really nice atmosphere on it. It contains both heavy rock and more gentile passages within the individual songs. It also contains screams (for example in 'Like Suicide') but mostly melodic vocals - sometimes with a raw edge to them. The songs all stand out on themselves yet you can clearly feel a certain connection between them. I mean, there's the same musical approach in most of them but if you would hear one song on its own you will probably swing along as well. Kinda like every song could become the next single of the album. For now, people just have to deal with 'Fake It' as the first single of this album. A nice song indeed!
 
Another great feature on the album is that it is so easy to sing along with songs after a short while. It definitely makes it more entertaining for me. Just a non-bullshit approach to the songs. "Why write extremely complex stuff when you'll manage to create a great effort without getting complex? Let the passion speak for itself." Well, actually I'm just guessing to the point of view of Shaun Morgan and co. but I can imagine it would be something like this.
 
Seether fans do not have to hesitate any longer and can buy this album blindly. Someone who doesn't know Seether should - besides from being ashamed - definitely check this band out if he or she is into very emotional and passionate rock. Oh yeah, I almost forgot, a big compliment for the cover artwork; again! And of course to the band for replacing guitarist Pat Callahan without making it a very noticeable on the album.
