Iso­late And Med­i­cate Caro­line

Blunt - - In Review -

The re­lease of a ‘best of...’ collection by a band, es­pe­cially one not yet re­tired, usu­ally hints that, per­haps, the cre­ative well has run a lit­tle dry. Seether at­tempt to prove that wrong with al­bum six, re­leased just a year af­ter the Seether: 2002-2013 collection. There’s still plenty up the sleaves of the trio and with a large and de­voted enough fan base to rest on their lau­rels, they still push them­selves into some var­ied ter­ri­tory. Opener “Down At The Bot­tom” com­bines Mid­dle East­ern melodies with a dark, sta­dium cho­rus; “Same Damn Life” is acutely ex­e­cuted gui­tar pop, com­plete with falsetto hooks; the gal­lop of the cho­rus in “Suf­fer It All” is book­ended by a mix of rapid chugs and a stac­cato stop-start verse. There’s noth­ing world­chang­ing here, but plenty for fans of old and some big cho­ruses sure to cap­ture a few more.
