Los Lonely Boys [DualDisc]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Thom Jurek
Los Lonely Boys are another entry into the rock & roll family band tree. The Garza brothers -- Henry, Jojo, and Ringo yes, that is his real name and he is the drummer -- like the Everlys, the Louvins, the Davies Ray and Dave, the Youngs Malcolm and Angus, and many others, are forging a new sound from the various roots traditions in American music. Rooted in rock & roll basics such as Chuck Berry, the Beatles, and Ritchie Valens and the Latin rhythm-inspired sounds created by the Santana band, the brothers Garza, who hail from San Angelo, TX, also employ the wondrously soulful and raw Tex-Mex textures created by Doug Sahm and Freddy Fender.

Los Lonely Boys are another entry into the rock & roll family band tree. The Garza brothers -- Henry, Jojo, and Ringo yes, that is his real name and he is the drummer -- like the Everlys, the Louvins, the Davies Ray and Dave, the Youngs Malcolm and Angus, and many others, are forging a new sound from the various roots traditions in American music. Rooted in rock & roll basics such as Chuck Berry, the Beatles, and Ritchie Valens and the Latin rhythm-inspired sounds created by the Santana band, the brothers Garza, who hail from San Angelo, TX, also employ the wondrously soulful and raw Tex-Mex textures created by Doug Sahm and Freddy Fender. Los Lonely Boys' self-titled debut on the Or label was recorded at Willie Nelson's Pedernales Studio in Austin and features Nelson and Reese Wynans guesting on guitar and keyboards, respectively, on "La Contestacion." But there is plenty to the sound of los Lonely Boys; their stew is one rich not only in history, but energy, songwriting craft, fine singing, and amazing playing -- check Henry's riffing, phrasing, and soloing on "Crazy Dreams" and one might think the ghost of Stevie Ray Vaughan is visiting Albert King's. "Dime Mi Amor," with its funky minor-key chord voicings dredged through a solid Latin rock structure with shimmering son rhythms and conjunto backbeats, is stunning in its complexity, yet is as accessible as any pop song. Driven by Henry's fluid and floral acoustic work and shot through with a soulful Tex-Mex backbeat and vocal harmonies that touch upon the originality of Cesar Rosas' and David Hidalgo's from los Lobos as well as the Everlys, "Hollywood" is not merely a referencing of source material, but a genuine way of combining ideas to create a new sound, one that is not only inherently, but actually the Garza brothers. As evidenced by songs like "Real Emotion," "More Than Love," "Onda," "Senorita," "La Contestacion," and "Velvet Sky," los Lonely Boys reveal that they are tied to tradition but far from stuck to it; their songs are first-rate, crafted with nuance, grace, and grit and wash over the listener like a late-summer dance party under a full moon. This glorious, dark, and steamy diamond,. rooted in innocence and raw rock & roll beauty, is most definitely a contender for debut album of the year.

    Los Lonely Boys music has got it all. Smooth vocals, well played

    Los Lonely Boys music has got it all. Smooth vocals, well played musical parts with the lead riffs by Henry as well played as any guitarist on the planet. (Somewhere Stevie Ray Vaughan is smiling every time Henry touches the guitar). They have songs with uptempo latin rhythms and slow ones for the tender times. The only thing better than listening to their CD's is seeing them IN CONCERT. That was a night to remember and they never leave the audience unhappy. This new album "Revelation" may be there best yet! Great job, guys!

    A Brave New Sound For American Rock And Roll.

    With The Rock En Espanol Era becoming a universal music phenomenon and
    revolutionizing the way rock and roll is played in Latin America during
    the 2000's, a new form of Latin rock was emerging in the United States--
    and right in Texas. The sound was Texican Rock and the band that bought
    it to a worldwide audience was Los Lonely Boys. As part of a steadily
    growing number of Hispanic rock acts in the United States who have made
    it big in recent memory, Los Lonely Boys showcases a hard-driving Latin
    Rock sound and a gutsy electric guitar artistry after making it's way
    on the music scene in 2003 when they released their highly praised self-titled debut CD. Showcased a track set including such classic hits like Heaven, Dime Mi Amor, Crazy Dreams, the instrumental favourite Onda and
    Vanilla Sky, Los Lonely Boys' first hit CD is gauranteed to be a historic
    landmark in rock and roll history.

    Something fresh with voices from heaven!

    I popped this into my cd and immediately started moving. It is suggestive, and not in your face. Their voices are so soothing, yet pretty darn sexual. The instrumentals are reminiscent of Santana, but not as long, which has it's good points. I was sad when the cd ended, and when I am feeling down, I know this will be the music I will be looking for. Outstanding!
