Product Description

Finding Beauty In Negative Spaces is Seether's 3rd major studio album and the bands newest album in 15 months. The first single 'Fake It' is already released to radio. "We've been working very hard on this album, and it's been quite some time since we've had a single at radio, so we're extremely excited to be back in the saddle, so to speak. We've adopted an ''anything goes'' attitude for this album. We didn't restrict ourselves to straight rock songs, and we were completely open to new ideas," says singer/guitarist Shaun Morgan. "This is not by any stretch of the imagination a concept album, nor is it a 'woe is me, I'm sober' album. We explored our melodic side a little bit more, and as a result, I believe this is our best collective effort to date. It may come as a surprise to some, but we feel like we've grown and are starting to find our place with regards to the sound of the band."

Seether returns with another workaday outing that rocks like late 2001. Finding Beauty in Negative Spaces is virtually interchangeable with any previous Seether disc, as well as pretty much anything by the likes of Nickelback, Shinedown, and other "post-grunge" rock bands. True, "Fake It" has zeal, and "Rise Above This" may very well provide the soundtrack to late-night, soul-searching sessions for teenagers from Cape Cod to Cape Town. Shaun Morgan’s often unnecessarily profane lyrics are another problem. Witness the gauche "FMLYHM," which borrows from lyrical ideas that sounded novel when Trent Reznor sang them in "Closer" more than a decade ago but now just sound juvenile and unnecessarily angry. Same goes for the numbing epic "No Jesus Christ" and the closer, "Waste." Throughout, the band shows a lack of imagination that may ultimately prove fatal. In all, this is cookie-cutter rock that really doesn’t. --Jedd Beaudoin

What a STUNNING album. Right from the very first song they GRAB you by the ears and rip your head around a full 360.

Starshine Moments

LIKE SUICIDE John deserves some serious accolades for his new role as The Baron of the Bionic Beatdown. His electrifying performance on this first song sets the tone for a truly electrifying record. He is so good on this track in fact that he seems to transcends drumming all together. There is so much palpable rage on this song that it sounds like he is not drumming so much as he is nailing someone's sorry butt to the wall. BRILLIANT. The first time I heard this song the hair on the back of my neck stood up and stayed up for the rest of the record.

BREAKDOWN. The lyrics are so intensely personal that by the end of the song I felt like an inadvertent peeping tom. There is a voyeuristic undercurrent on this and so many of the other songs that the sense of guilt for somehow snooping in someone's personal life was thankfully counter balanced by the staggering melodies and sumptuous harmonies in the music that supports so many secrets

FALLEN. This song is 100% AURAL pleasure. Dale Stewart should be nominated for an AVN Award for his outrageously devilish bassline on this song. Talk about a dirty lick. WOW!!! I am blown away and addicted. The bassline and the drums on this song are so HOT that it borders on porn...FUN porn...like Lollipop Girls in Hard Candy the infamous 3D porn with John Holmes from the 70's. Phunky, Chunky, stick-to-your-ribs delishus. If you need music to lurk to put the bass line from this song on a continuous loop and have at it. Fallen is especially effective in headphones when Johns drum beats move from here to there. If you listen to this song on an ipod you will not be able to walk straight.

THE BAND: Shaun Morgan (vocals, guitars), Dale Stewart (bass), John Humphrey (drums & percussion). Origin - South Africa.

THE DISC: (2007) 12 tracks clocking in at approximately 50 minutes. Included with the disc is a 10-page booklet containing song titles/credits, song lyrics, a dedication to Morgan's brother Eugene Welgemoed (R.I.P.), artwork by famed Chinese-American artist David G. Ho, and thank you's. Music by Seether, all lyrics by Morgan. This is the band's 3rd studio album. Label: Wind-up Records.

COMMENTS: Seether continues their breed of angry post grunge songs (with an affinity for the F-bomb - which sometimes works, but usually doesn't). "Finding Beauty In Negative Spaces" is a solid album, but there's nothing out of the ordinary here. To me, Seether is still in the same class with Breaking Benjamin, Staind, Three Days Grace, Crossfade, Cold, etc... the band continues to write quality songs that deliver with conviction. There are some issues here that perhaps affected the songs/album - Morgan dealing with his brother's suicide, his own drug addiction, and numerous production delays. Also, gone is guitarist Pat Callahan - in these 2nd tier rock bands, 2 guitars are usually better than 1. "Finding Beauty In Negative Spaces" is a solid album, filled with stinging guitar riffs and some decent hooks scattered through out. I find myself listening to the entire disc without hitting the `skip' button. While there's no mainstream rock powerhouse hit like Disclaimer's "Fine Again", or a pound your fist get-up-and-yell track like "Gasoline", or a top-notch smoky ballad like "Broken", "Finding Beauty" still manages to please - reaching #9 on Billboard's Top 200 albums in 2007.

This is the third release from one of my favorite bands Seether. The band has changed a lot from Karma (Pat Callahan, Shaun Morgans Rehab) and it's mostly for the good. This is one of their stronger release, it sound quite like their first release.

Here's a break down of the songs

Like Suicide 10/10 - This song is exactly what I think of when I think of Seether, great guitar riffs and a catchy chorus.

Fake It 9/10 - Very catch but doesn't sound like the classic Seether. After hearing the song 20 times it tends to get a bit Repetitive.

Breakdown 10/10 - Very sad song (The sun is gone, and the flowers rot). The first time i heard this song I thought I was listening to Breaking Benjamin. But this song has all the elements of an Amazing Seether song (great lyrics, great guitar riffs)

FMLYHM 10/10 - Reminds me of my last girlfriend. I like songs I can relate to. Has a very catch chorus and is very interesting.

Fallen 7/10 - This is one of the weaker songs on the Cd. It has weak guitars (a lot of the parts don't even have guitar on them) just a very forgettable song.

Rise Above This 5/10 - My least favorite song on the CD. This song was written about Eugene Welgemoed before his death. It's (this is going to sound bad) Optimistic. It just don't fit on this CD. The guitars are weak and the lyrics don't sound like Seether.

No Jesus Christ 10/10 - A much needed heavy point on the CD. One of the best songs on this Cd. The guitars are very unique, amazingly catchy riff. The premise behind the song just makes it stand out on here.

6 Gun Quota 9/10 - Catchy, classic Seether. The guitars aren't amazing but the lyrics counteract that.
