Seether, ‘No Resolution’ – Song Review
Seether's 'Holding Onto Strings Better Left to Fray' is an album full of hits that ascend to the top of the Active Rock charts with regularity. The band has chosen 'No Resolution' as the next single, and the song opens with a bluesy, almost countrified riff before launching into a full-scale rock attack.
This uptempo, crunchy rock anthem features all the things we've come to know and love about Seether: solid riffs, anthemic structure, quality songwriting and hooks that sink themselves into your skin.
The band has been racking up No. 1 rock hits with regularity and there's no reason to think that a pulse-pounder such as 'No Resolution' won't follow suit and keep the streak alive. It's three minutes of flawlessly executed rock 'n' roll, with catchy choruses and a chunky, riffy bridge that is highlighted by an unexpected, unpredictable and pretty vocal where Shaun Morgan sings, "You can't keep me down / My friend." Sometimes it's best to insert a more subdued part in the middle of the maelstrom to offset things.
The song is full of ominous lyrics, such as "I need retribution / Just don't get it that I'm the solution," which further up the universal appeal. Who hasn't felt this way?
It's a short song, but the length is effective. It's a strong, robust rock track that will have you reaching for the rewind button by the time it fades out.
