Been missing Los Lonely Boys? Forgiven and the two new songs on Christmas Spirit probably feel like they were a lifetime ago. Rockpango rolls us back to some of the musical magic of the first album while showing some musical growth. New elements? Sure. 16 Monkeys, Baby Girl and Porn Star may be ... confusing ... to those who have followed the boys for a while as well as new listeners. Some reviewers have held that LLB's music is shallow or even juvenile. Not so any more, at least if your measure is more ... mature ... themes. Different isn't necessarily bad, just different. Consistent aspects? Also "sure". Latin rhythms and Spanish on the fly are back and strong. There's an acoustic song, plus ballads. Pretty wide take on musical styles. And mostly our expected topics. In no particular order: Rockpango has been used as a show encore on and off for the past year, so many are familiar with this song. Fly Away is, of course, the first single. A catchy acoustic song that has done well with old and new fans. The rest of the album is a smorgasbord, and the boys have had it on tour for about ten days as I write this. Traditional LLB: Fly Away. Slow and soulful: Road To Nowhere. Smile. In your face rockers: Rockpango. Believe. Love In My Veins. Thoughtful: Change the World. American Idle. A bit...distinctive: 16 Monkeys. One reviewer on a different site referred to this as "day tripper lyrics". Funny! Outside the normal LLB boundaries: Porn Star. Baby Girl. LLB has never been able to be fit into a genre box. So it remains inappropriate to try to box this album. Take it at face value: three young men, with some assistance, making a new, full album of their "Texican" music. For which I am thankful, and of which I am proud - for them. Viva LLB! PS: I am and remain a rabid LLB fan. That's your free grain of salt for my review. By all means, see Los Lonely Boys perform live; but the album will keep you between shows! Orale'!
