All Music Guide - Alex Henderson
In the late '90s and early 2000s, there were countless alternative metal bands that were similar to Sevendust in many respects -- bands that could be bone crushing but also had a sense of melody; bands that thrived on dark, angst-ridden lyrics and were as angry as they were introspective. But most of them couldn't match Sevendust's excellence; even if they had the basics down, their writing wasn't as consistent. Plus, they didn't have anyone as exciting as lead singer Lajon Witherspoon whose soulful, R&B-influenced vocals set Sevendust apart from most of the group's competitors in the alt-metal field.

In the late '90s and early 2000s, there were countless alternative metal bands that were similar to Sevendust in many respects -- bands that could be bone crushing but also had a sense of melody; bands that thrived on dark, angst-ridden lyrics and were as angry as they were introspective. But most of them couldn't match Sevendust's excellence; even if they had the basics down, their writing wasn't as consistent. Plus, they didn't have anyone as exciting as lead singer Lajon Witherspoon whose soulful, R&B-influenced vocals set Sevendust apart from most of the group's competitors in the alt-metal field. Released in 2003, the Atlanta residents' fourth album, Seasons, came six years after their 1997 debut -- and creatively, they didn't lose any momentum on this forceful yet melodic CD. Surprisingly, Seasons was produced by singer/songwriter Butch Walker, who is known for his years with Marvelous 3 and is generally a lot more pop-minded than Witherspoon and his colleagues -- not exactly the first person one would expect to produce a Sevendust disc. But in fact, Walker produced some demos for Sevendust before the band signed with TVT back when the group was known as Crawlspace. And even though Walker doesn't have a long resumé when it comes to alt-metal, he works out well on Seasons. From the burning anger of "Enemy" drummer Morgan Rose's blistering attack on former Coal Chamber singer B. Dez Fafara to the dark introspection of "Suffocate," "Broken Down," "Separate," and "Skeleton Song," Seasons is far from a happy CD, but it's a compelling one -- perhaps too dark for some listeners, but compelling nonetheless -- and Sevendust continues to live up to its high standards throughout the band's fourth album.

    Hey, if it ain't broke...then don't fix it!

    This band is simply...amazing! They've pretty much kept the same formula from the last album "Animosity" which is good news for us fans. If you've never heard of this band or never seen them live...then you are truly missing out on one of the greatest rock bands of our time. Buy this album now!!! Hehe....

    No BULL.... on this album!

    Many Rock and Metal bands have come and gone, but few have ever delivered the quality of music that fans thrive for. I first heard Sevendust on the soundtrack and video "Black" that followed the 1998 movie Strangeland written and directed by "Twisted Sister's" Dee Snider. After hearing and seeing them they gained my respect, and from then on, I was hooked! Before I knew it, I had several of their albums on CD. Eventually I had the privilege of seeing them in concert and to tell you the truth, they were outstanding. Not so much because I was already a fan, but I was astonished by the quality of the music they performed live. What ever you heard on their CD's was exactly what you got on stage. Upon listening to them from their first album, you can hear and feel the maturing of their musicianship as well as their lyrics. The technicality increases as so does their melodic ness. Seasons, In my ears, has become the prevalence of all of what they use to incorporate their unique sound. It is a masterpiece and an album well worth your money. I undoubtedly had to buy this one for my collection. If you've never heard these guys, give them a chance. You won't regret it!
