DC Reviews ~ Siggno: Zodiacal

The new and highly anticipated release of Siggno’s Zodiacal happened on Tuesday and already it is #1 on iTunes. Let me tell you, fans and listeners will enjoy this new production recorded at Freddie Records and in Mexico at Los Temerarios’ recording studio.

Known for their heavy rhythm section and hard-driving tunes, Siggno doesn’t disappoint on Zodiacal. Vocally, though, it would seem to be lead vocalist Jesse Turner’s best effort yet. In fact, in a pre-release interview produced by the band, Turner states that after the vocal tracks were laid, the record company chiefs decided that much more could be brought out of him at the Mexico studio and Turner went through the motions to re-record the vocals. Apparently, Turner struck gold as he seems to give it all he’s got vocally.

Siggno has assembled some great composers for this album, giving this new set of songs some lyrical maturity. One can notice this on rancheras Asi Sera, Inevitable and El Vaso Derrama, on the cumbia Sin Nada Que Perder, and the ballad Te Llevare.

Overall, Zodiacal is a powerful and diverse mix of tunes that keeps one toe-tapping and wanting for a dance floor. The waltzy Tus Labios could be a good live tune, while the uptempo cumbia Un Monton De Estrellas will keep folks dancing. My favorite tune, thus far, is the ranchera Y A El Si, with the excellent drumming of Joey Jimenez and the creative bajo playing of Richard Rosales, which actually, is evident in every tune on the album.

No doubt, this production has something for all ears and will be a fan favorite on both sides of the border. The good thing about Siggno is that they are more than able to reproduce the sound on stage, so, I’m looking forward to hearing the new music in a live setting.
