The artwork of Seether's 2013 compilation 2002-2013 is a picture of a dog defecating. Read one way, this crappy cover could be taken as the post-grunge trio's opinion of the need for a compilation; read another, it could be taken as a criticism of the band's music. Either way, there's no getting around that it's an ugly cover for a by-the-books greatest-hits, a 15-track overview that contains all the band's modern rock radio hits -- including "Broken," the duet with Amy Lee -- and emphasizing their latter-day albums Finding Beauty in Negative Spaces and Holding Onto Strings Better Left to Fray over the early Disclaimer and Karma and Effect. The second disc rounds up rarities, demos, and B-sides -- songs that popped up on superhero and horror film soundtracks, plus a cover of their namesake, Veruca Salt's "Seether" -- which should please fans. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
