Since I'm going to be seeing them on Sunday, thought it would be fun to rank their albums and check them all out again before seeing them (Only using "Disclaimer I" for the Disclaimer albums). I was going to write a review for one of their albums, but I already have one out on the front page, so this will do for now. (10 Years and The Dead Deads will be opening up for them)
Holding Onto Strings Better Left To Fray
This album didn't really catch my attention. There were a few good moments here and there, but it overall failed in quality. Seether's attempt at continuing their general tone and style manages to fail in the power of what they usually produce. Honestly, the title kind of says it all.
Finding Beauty In Negative Spaces
As many fun moments there are on "Finding Beauty In Negative Spaces," the moments just don't last. Initially, this album was quite amazing and innovative, but over time, it became more and more generic in my mind. Filled with many mainstream moments (i.e. Fake It, Breakdown), falls bland with a few moments of power, Seether fails to deliver the emotion found on the records before this.
No Jesus Christ
Isolate And Medicate
After "Holding Onto Strings Better Left To Fray," expectations for Seether were low. Then came along "Isolate and Medicate" brought back hope for the future of the band. Mixing all of the past elements of the band, Seether created an album that helped redeem their failure of the previous record. With a combination of hard hitting songs (i.e. See You At the Bottom) and "melodic" songs (i.e. Crash), Seether's return from "Holding Onto Strings Better Left to Fray" is not something to disregard.
Suffer It All
Keep the Dogs At Bay
The top 3 are the hardest to rank for me. Although I love this album, I feel like the next two are a bit better. "Disclaimer" was a promising debut for Seether, exhibiting their style of mixing both soft and heavy aspects in each of their songs. The thing I love about this album is the powerful sound each song had, not worrying about radio play but rather focusing on quality and hard hitting riffs. "Disclaimer" not only has some of their heaviest songs (i.e. F*** It), but it also contains some of their best "melodic" songs of their entire discography (i.e. Fine Again, Driven Under).
Poison The Parish
Seether's newest release continues on the momentum of improvement sparked by "Isolate and Medicate," resulting in a fairly rounded album overall. Seether returns back to their heavy roots (although not as raw as in the earlier years), producing songs like "Betray and Degrade" and "Nothing Left" that show the heavier side of Seether prominent throughout the album. That's not to say they ditched their softer moments as prevalent in "Against the Wall" and "Sell My Soul." In general, the album is a continued improvement from the band, showing that Seether can still produce quality music despite previous releases.
Betray and Degrade
Sell My Soul
Karma And Effect
My favorite Seether album ever produced. Filled with plenty of heavy moments (i.e. Because of Me) and softer moments (i.e. Plastic Man) alike, "Karma and Effect" displays the perfect mix of aggressiveness and gentleness. Along with the quality of the album as a whole, each individual song stands consistent on their own, exhibiting strength among each and every song.
Burrito (probably my favorite Seether track of all time)
|1, 2, and 3 usually alternate among their spots depending on what I'm currently into, but the current ranking is generally how it is. The last three are always fixed at their current rankings.|
|Not really a fan of Seether anymore but I thought Isolate and Medicate had some of their best work with Words As Weapons, Suffer It All and Same Damn Life being some of the best songs |
|No bad material from these guys, I honestly enjoy 6 and 5 quite alot. Haven't heard 2 yet|
|Isolate and Medicate definitely has some pretty good songs, but the overall sound of the album wasn't amazing. |
The only album I didn't quite enjoy was 6 and I'm not sure why. All of the other albums are definitely enjoyable.
|Sowders would approve if he werent in jail rn...I think his fave was 1|
|Used to jam Disclaimer II hard, was probably my favourite album at one time|
|10 Years are excellent live. These guys were okay the one time I saw them. Didn’t have a lot of presence not bad.|
|careless whisper cover|
|my high school band, I haven't jammed them in a while|
|Disclaimer II is my most jammed album, but I think all their work is consistently decent. Nice list|
