4 stars I was disappointed with the production of The Beacons Of Somewhere Sometime. While it does have some great songs, it does not sound as good as any of Subsignal's other album. I listened to it again using a different pair of headphones, and it did sound better but still muddy. However, La Muerta does not have any production issues and sounds very good. The mix is just a huge improvement, and more in line with Paraíso. Speaking of Paraíso, La Muerta shares a more accessible collection of songs. La Muerta still has the same stellar harmonies that Subsignal really explores throughout their catalog. They are often described as a lighter version of their previous band Sieges Even, and La Muerta does not get too heavy to qualify for progressive metal. They fit the Neo-Prog label, but could also be crossover. Overall, this latest offering has everything I enjoy including fantastic songwriting and musicianship. The heart of the album with La Muerta, The Bells of Lyonesse, and Every Able Hand is just perfect. The Passage could be the best song on the album, but really there is no filler here. Marjana Semkina singing in a duet on Some Kind Of Drowning is just stunning. Maybe that is the best song. La Muerta is not the most progressive album, but it still has many interesting compositions to keep the listener entertained. It is a must get for fans of Subsignal that appreciate their brand of consistently great music.
