Product Description

Two years since their multi-platinum album debut and a Grammy Award for "Heaven", the Los Lonely Boys are back with a new soul-driven album, Sacred. With powerful harmonies and pulsating guitars, Sacred covers 13 songs, all co-written by the Texican brothers, including the single, "Diamonds".

One of the few contemporary bands to land a decidedly roots-rock song on the charts with 2004's Grammy-winning "Heaven," Los Lonely Boys solidified their status as youngsters with an established sound on their first disc. On this highly anticipated studio followup, all talk of the sophomore jinx dissipates with the opening soul-drenched riff rocker "My Way." Although horns are added for extra drama, the three Garza brothers nail this groove as Henry's Stevie Ray Vaughan-fortified guitar powers one of the boys' most fiery performances. Supporter and mentor Willie Nelson joins on the wah-wah driven, Waylon Jennings-styled "Outlaws," as does the brothers' musician father Enrique Sr. Tough midtempo ballads such as "Home" and the very Santana-ish "I Never Met a Woman" follow in the footsteps of "Heaven" as candidates for slow dance song of the year.

Anyone entranced by the Garzas' debut will be thrilled by this classy followup that tightens some of the loose ends but displays additional confidence resulting from two years of nearly nonstop road work. The band spotlights its Tex-Mex roots on the accordion-driven "Texican Style," where near-perfect vocal harmonies drive an irresistible bluesy shuffle. Most encouraging is that Los Lonely Boys haven't succumbed to commercial pressure since their surprise hit debut. Rather, they have refined and organically expanded their approach, and crafted another classy, committed, radio-friendly Americana gem that meshes blues, Mexican, and soul with a spicy topping of hot-sauce musicianship. --Hal Horowitz

Los Lonely Boys (los Hermanos del Garza, if I may be allowed to practice my rudimentary Spanish) have a knack: combining expert musicianship with catchy rhythms/lyrics. The result is spectacular--their debut album was a knock-out, and their sophomore effort only continues to display their many talents.

From heartbreak to eternal love, to divine devotion, SACRED is an album of...well, sanctity. These three gentlemen seem to worship their music, to thrive on their melodies...and we can only thank them for it. The songs here are just as enjoyable as those on the first (there's no instrumental this time around, but the guys get enough picking/playing room to display their versitile talents), and the duet with father Enrique Sr. and Willie Nelson is pure outlaw enjoyment (good thing the song is entitled "Outlaws"). SACRED is a true rock/Tejano/Texicano/country/blues is an album celebrating the virtues of music, by 3 of the most talented musicians today.

Los Lonely Boys' debut studio album established them as the "wunderkinds" (wunderkinder?) of roots-rock, with a very accomplished combination of Santana-meets-SRV guitar and tight vocal harmonies - and they scored a huge radio hit with "Heaven". On their sophomore studio effort, they seem to be nailing it down to a formula, and their music seems just a bit more "polished". But that also means some of the excitement and fire of the first album seems to be missing. Maybe the novelty has worn off a little, or maybe it's just that the Garza brothers have settled into a comfortable groove. After all, their lyrics aren't going to set the songwriting world on fire, and they'll never be mistaken for a "groundbreaking" band. On the other hand, they are still as deft with the guitar licks and vocals as ever, and there are some tunes here that stand out. "Diamonds", for instance, could join "Heaven" as another big radio hit. The opener, "My Way" (no, not the Ol' Blue Eyes song) is also a passionate rocker. Also worthy of airplay are "Roses", "Texican Style", "Outlaws" (on which they are joined by their dad, as well as their buddy and unofficial mentor, Willie Nelson), and the closing number, "Living My Life", which comes closest to a freewheeling performance indicative of their live sets. (Check out "Live at the Fillmore" for an excellent chronicle of their live performances.) It's hard to argue with success, especially when it's attained through such fine musicianship. So let me put my quibbles aside and recommend this CD. It may seem like more of the same from this band, but that "same" is still pretty damn good blues-rock.

Two words to describe the new Los Lonely Boys CD, "Sacred"? Raw polish. Edgy jams and sound fattened up with organ and percussion accent the blend of Tejano and Blues, coming together to create a big sound of their own. Welcome to "Texican"! On a side note, I really hope LLB considers full band membership and recognition for their side keyboardist.

It has been years since I have heard such a universally accessable CD like "Sacred", and I feel that LLB will reel in millions of new fans and quiet the naysayers.

Unlike their self titled "debut", LLB are granted production credit on this brilliant and soaring sophomore effort. In a day and age where current acts are molded in the image of the almighty record company empty suits, the Boys assert their independence with songs like "My Way" and "Oye Mamacita". Sure, some of the tracks were optimized for extensive airplay...but so what!! "Roses", I feel, is destined to be a single that blows the band through the top of the charts and I hope it is their second single. I counted at least 8 songs of the 13 that could potentially have broad radio appeal, but ALL the songs are great in their own right.

I am beaming with pride that my Texican boys from San Angelo are at the vanguard of a big new sound! "Sacred" is 54 minutes of Heaven!

Before buying "Sacred", I had some fears that the album would be overly-commercial and might even scream "sellout", given the huge success of their debut. But thankfully it doesn't.

Sacred builds on the group's debut album nicely. The Texican blues/rock/rock en espanol/Stevie Ray Vaughan touches are all still there. There's more instrumentation than the debut, which is a nice addition. The songs are all very catchy - but again, without being too catchy or cheesy. The lyrics and rhyming are somewhat predictable at times, but really, who cares when they sound this good?

I give Los Lonely Boys a lot of respect for writing their own songs, playing their own instruments, and co-producing the album. These guys are very talented musicians. I would definitely recommend Sacred to lovers of "good music".

First album was fantastic and the boys deliver yet again. Strong harmonies, catchy tunes, inventive guitar playing , slinky rythms, theyre all here in spades. Every track is excellent. The standout for me on the album was "Outlaws" ...featuring their dad and Willie Nelson contributing vocals... Country Bluesrock is a good description of the song. Its like Waylon Jennings/Johnny Cash meet Stevie Ray Vaughan/Jimi Hendrix. Fantastic stuff.
