Sound — 10
Being a fan of the sounds created by great bands like Nirvana and Pearl Jam, I suggest you believe me when I tell you that Seether will one day be right up there with all the greats of rock. Seether uses a post grunge sound and spices it up with hot riffs and unbelievable vocals. Seether creates a professional sound enough to make any hardcore fan of the art proud. Seether definately achieved a big break-through with 'Finding beauty in Negative spaces' and will definately be seeing the top of many more charts in the near future.

When it comes to lyrics I find it hard to critisize Shaun Morgan. The only problem I can find is that certain key words seem to be popping up in many different songs and albums. Shaun Morgan's voice seems to have shades of the great master of grunge, Mr. Kurt himself but just with a much deeper and stronger tone. The lyrics blend in perfectly with the music whether the music is fast paced or even on slower deeper songs.
Overall Impression — 10
Seether have made a masterpiece in my view which is much more than I can say about many other of even my favorite bands. Slowly but surely Seether are makig themselves heard. The album has songs to which you can relate. 'Like suicide' is one of those nice flowing hard rock songs, whilst 'no Jesus Christ' is straght forward head banging bliss. Seether gets full marks for this effort.
