Can anything even more magical happen in the already charmed career of Los Lonely Boys? You bet. It’s called Rockpango, their first self produced long player on their own LonelyTone/Playing In Traffic Records. And yeah, it’s magical indeed.

At least as magical — and maybe more so — as debuting in 2003 with ... Read more in Amazon's Los Lonely Boys Store

Product Description

Forgiven is the third album from Grammy Award winning multi platinum artist Los Lonely Boys. This album was produced by Steve Jordan (John Mayer). Forgiven is the follow up to Sacred which debuted at #2 on the Billboard charts in July 2006. The album's first single 'Staying With Me' premiered on May 5th Cinco De Mayo. Los Lonely Boys are a rock band from San Angelo, Texas. They play a style of music which they dub as Texican Rock n' Roll, combining elements of Rock'N'Roll, Blues, Soul, Country, and Tejano.

Los Lonely Boys have an impressive sound, on CD or in concert. Sound will never be a problem for this group, but although Forgiven is well executed technically, Los Lonely Boys have been doing the same song over and over for years. If you have listened to three of their songs, you have heard them all. This CD is no different. It’s the same usual rock/pop with a few Latin touches in the Santana style. It’s good that the group has a signature sound, but it doesn’t mean that it’s alright to make the same album time and again. Should Los Lonely Boys adventure to perform other genres, they will surely have an impact, as they did when they first came out, but Forgiven is a forgettable album. --Ernesto Sánchez (People en Español People en Español)

Aquí tiene a un grupo que suena espectacular ya sea en disco o en concierto, ese nunca será su problema. Pero a pesar de que en Forgiven técnicamente está bien ejecutado Los Lonely Boys llevan años haciendo la misma canción una y otra vez, si ha escuchado tres canciones de ellos ya lo ha escuchado todo, este disco no es diferente, presenta el mismo rock pop de siempre con toquecitos latinos al estilo Santana. Es admirable que el grupo tenga un sonido que los caracteriza, pero eso no quiere decir que deban hacer el mismo disco una y otra vez. Si Los Lonely Boys se aventuraran a tocar otros géneros seguramente sorprenderían como lo hicieron cuando salieron originalmente. Es un disco muy olvidable. --Ernesto Sánchez (People en Español People en Español)

Customer Reviews

Like the albums before, this one will not disappoint.
In keeping with their enjoyable sound, great music and smooth voices I found this CD being played and re-played again and again.
I've seen Los Lonely Boys in concert twice and I love their music!

The new Los Lonely Boys CD was released today and I give it a very big two thumbs up! This new CD is the most technically-sophisticated music Los Hermanos Garza have released and this is keeping in mind that they set the bar very high with their first CD in 2004. They just keep getting better! Henry and the Fender Stratt were made for each other. The amazing vocals never become lost in the music. These are voices which stand out as musical instruments in their own right and the Garzas have a lot to say with their music. It is about life and family and struggles and overcoming, but it is great, feel-good music. Dr. John was credited on four tracks and his gentle influence comes through but in a way which surprised me. The tracks on which he performed are not "Dr. John" tracks. He added his smooth spice but became part of the songs, rather than the other way around. This is part of the overall musical sophistication I see throughout this CD. My favourite track? This moment it is "Loving You Always" for the upbeat ritmo and the outstanding lyrics but by evening, I will have more favourites. "Make It Better" is already working on me in a major way. Value for money? I consider this CD to be worth (easily) twice the price. This is not one to listen to once and toss in a corner. This will be on my playlist for a very long time. Enjoy! ¡Gracias, amigos Tejanos!

What I loved about these guys was their latin rock vibe (Senorita), the latin rhythms (Oye Mamacita) and the interplay with spanish lyrics..(Heaven)...And a whole lot of Henry's guitar (Onda)....Well, there is none of that here..Well, some guitar but not enough for me...Henry, you're fantastic...Don't hold back, brother.
My two favorite songs from this record are the two bonus tracks you only get if you buy from Wal-Mart. ("There's A War Tonight" and "Guero In The Barrio"...Who's that singing?)
But there are some good songs here. "Make It Better" could have been written by Paul McCartney, and "Staying With Me" should be a solid hit. The bottom line is that LLB is the best "live" band in the country. This cd doesn't convey how good LLB is, and I hope this is not the direction they (Epic) is going with them.

Forgiven, the 3rd album for the Garza brothers, is a solid effort for the boys from San Angelo. While it is not their best album, it is still very good. Los Lonely Boys are victims of their success because every album they release will be compared to their first album. In a way, they are like other great bands that have one seminal album with several good albums that get overlooked. There are several songs that stand out in my mind. The title track is awesome. To me, it is a sister song to "Heaven". This album pays tribute to some of their other influences with the Beatle-esque "Make it better". "Superman" is notable because it's the first track where Ringo showcases his vocal skills. Other songs of note are "I'm a Man" (a concert regular), "Can't See the Light", and "The Way I Feel". To me, there is no better power trio today. JoJo and Ringo propel the album forward with their thundering rhythyms and beats with Henry invoking the great SRV and Hendrix. He is not a copycat; he adds his own flair that lets you know that it is Henry Garza. Forgiven is definitely the most eclectic of all 3 LLB albums and you won't be sorry you bought it.

Los Lonely Boys's third studio effort took a few listens to get acquainted with, but now I'm happy to say I'm enjoying it quite a bit. It has some great blues-rockers such as the hard-hitting Heart Won't Tell A Lie and the funky I'm A Man, and Superman, which features drummer/brother Ringo Garza on vocals (message to the band: let him sing more next time). The song Cruel is another favorite, very funky and moody. The album also has some great slower songs, like like the pleading Forgiven, the soaring Make It Better, and the breezy Staying With Me. Staying With Me is a great song, and I find myself hearing it in my head a lot. But I do have a problem with this being the first single. I do wish that LLB would show their rock side in their singles a bit more, and not just play up the Heaven angle everytime. A small quibble though. I think they should've hit with I'm A Man or Heart Won't Tell A Lie, and then follow up with Staying With Me. Just me though. Still not up to par with their debut, but that's okay, because there's plenty to like here. Besides, it's going to be awful hard to top that one! They may not ever have another hit like Heaven (although I certainly hope so, because they're so good) but with this album LLB have shown that they will have something to offer the world for a long time to come.

This CD is more like the first LLB record, which is the best effort by the Garza brothers. "Sacred" had a depressing feeling to it and wasnt as good at what LLB do best. And what they do best is soulful blues with harmony. "Forgiven" is a well written and performed album. It does have a more bluesy feel then the last record. My only real complaint is that most of the songs are under 4 minutes.

These guys are truly some of the most gifted musicians on the planet.
