The fifth studio album of Seether, “Holding onto Strings Better Left to Fray,” further expands on the dynamic musical growth curve heard on Seether’s 2007 release, “Finding Beauty in Negative Spaces,” while maintaining a sonic imprint that is undeniably Seether. There are many reasons to be excited. Not only does Seether branch out stylistically on the album’s first single, “Country Song” — which blends a buoyant, aurally addictive hook with the band’s signature searing guitar work — but Shaun Morgan’s striking new vocal approach is audible from the album’s exhilarating lead track, “No Resolution.”
The result is a collection of compelling vocal performances that conjure an appealing blend of two of Morgan’s chief influences, Kurt Cobain and Tool’s Maynard James Keenan. It makes Strings an immensely satisfying listening experience.
