Review: Seether - Holding onto Strings Better Left to Fray

Following up 2007’s gold-selling Finding Beauty in Negative Spaces, South African post-grunge trio Seether return with their most complete album to date. Opening with a slick, wailing guitar solo, “No Resolution” recalls Purple-era Stone Temple Pilots, while the inevitable single “Tonight” feels like a natural sequel to Seether’s own smash hit “Rise Above This.” Other stellar tracks include the hauntingly bitter “Master of Disaster” and the stomping “Desire for Need,” one of the heaviest songs the band has released. Held together by Shaun Morgan’s alternately gritty and smooth vocals, Holding onto Strings Better Left to Fray should forever distinguish Seether from all the clichéd radio-rock schlock flooding the airwaves.
