4.0 out of 5 stars A "musical burrito" with more meat, July 2, 2008
This review is from: Forgiven (Audio CD)
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.

I'm glad you mentioned SRV while saying Henry was not a copycat.This guy can bring elements of Santana and SRV and still sound like himself(a rare skill).I have only heard the single Staying With Me and was surprised to hear a recent era Clapton influence-not sure if I was dissapointed or not,only heard it once.Good review though.Will probably buy the CD.
