Seether’s new release, Finding Beauty in Negative Spaces, contains little beauty and a whole lot of negative space.

For those unfamiliar with Seether’s brand of music, the band simply aspires to emulate rock music of the most basic kind. Some songs may be catchy like “Fake It,” but within the scope of its simple, heavily computerized guitar riffs and overproduced vocals, musicality just doesn’t shine through.

Lyrical content is, at times, painfully simple and lead singer Shaun Morgan often uses profanity to fill the space of Seether’s lyrical abyss.

After piggybacking on Evanescence’s Amy Lee in order to achieve fame on its 2004 release, Seether has failed to change its sound over the past four years, releasing virtually the same album time and again.

If you’re a fan of Seether, you’ll love this album, as it’s indistinguishable from the band’s previous attempts.

However, if you’re interested in finding music that will make you think, inspire you or take you to another place, look elsewhere.
