Editorial Reviews

Hailed by All Music Guide as 'one of America's premier rock bands,' Los Lonely Boys expand and enhance their trademark all-embracing Texican rock'n'roll sound on Rockpango, the band's fourth and finest studio album yet. Continuing to creatively draw from and meld blues, rock from classic to modern, soul, their Latino heritage and even snippets of hip-hop, jazz and more, they display greater assurance, creativity and sophistication than ever on their new disc while continuing to offer infectious music that goes straight to the heart. The stuff that made Los Lonely Boys stars- luscious brotherly vocal harmonies, potent songs with unshakeable pop appeal, irresistible grooves and Henry Garza's masterful guitar work's are in full abundance on Rockpango. It's a great leap forward by one of rock music's finest groups.

The little sticky label on the cover says "First CD of all new material in over three years!"

The absolute truth. From the original 1997 "Los Lonely Boys" (yes, there was...) to the 2000 "Live At Blue Cat Blues" to the 2003 "Los Lonely Boys" took some time too. Then Live At The Fillmore. Sacred. Forgiven. Christmas Spirit. 1969. Keep On Giving. And now, finally, another full album of new material.

There's obviously time and care invested in this album. Those wonderfully deep and thoughtful lyrics are sprinkled throughout, but also some musical ... growth ... as the boys try out some new tricks.

And for those of you who missed the switch-on-the-fly English to Spanish, well...it's back! As is quite a bit of Latin rhythm!

Of additional special note - the second LLB album on the Playing In Traffic Records label and LLB's Lonely Tone imprint.

In track list order:

American Idle: A gritty rocker that takes issue with the fact that "Everybody knows you gotta make a dollar just to get along..."

Fly Away: Picked as the first single, this catchy acoustic piece will have you wiggling in your seat!

Love In My Veins: "I need your love...I need you in my veins." Perhaps predictable lyrics, but the boys have a good time bringing us yet another pass at those words, plus some great guitar work by Henry.

Road To Nowhere: One of those painful country-inspired songs that the boys are so good at. "Dressed" with a bit of strings, you'll find some pretty vocal work as well.

16 Monkeys: A big, unexpected departure from the songs we've been given by LLB up to now. When I first heard it, I thought the boys had been spinning Mike Nesmith's "Eldorado To The Moon" or something similar. Funny...

I just had to throw in my two cents worth here. I am a LLB fan and have been for some time. I was however getting a bit tired of the same old music being rehashed. With Rockpango my enthusiasm has been renewed. What a great piece of work from the Boys. Yes it has some tunes that are different and that, for me, is exactly what was needed. I have seen LLB several times now and they never fail to give a GREAT show. If you have the chance do yourself a favor and see them, I will be seeing them once again in a few months. Thanks for the music guys.

Was this review helpful? I hope that it will be for new fans of Los Lonely Boys and old fans who have not yet purchased ROCKPANGO. As mentioned in other reviews, this is Los Lonely Boys 1st CD released under their label Lonely Tone/Playing in Traffic Records and the 4th studio recorded CD. It is my opinion that Los Lonely Boys has stayed true to who they are. Henry, JoJo and Ringo are not boys ... they are mature young men now, who have experienced life on all different levels. Their journey is reflected in this CD (regular and enhanced). While the track titles and lyrics may have thrown some reviewers for a loop (I don't get it but they have the right to their opinions) - you cannot deny the talent that these brothers from San Angelo, Texas have. Remember people these are 3 musicians who produce a HUGE sound with their respective instruments - although they do have guest appearances by: it doesn't dismiss the fact that they are the master engineers behind the drive and direction on this CD. There is something on ROCKPANGO for everyone. You have Latin inspired beats, Santana, Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan influences, guest appearances: Riley Osbourn, Carmelo Torres, DJ Beans scratching, Rap from Kush, Carrie Rodriguez - lead violin and the Tosca Strings. Remove the lyrics from the tracks and the music and arrangements will still "rock my world".

So let's talk about the lyrics. The 11 tracks (plus 2 bonus tracks) found on these 2 CDs are songs that speak of lost love, found love, and lasting love and are as raw and as real as you can get. They're songs of taking a stand in changing the world, enjoying life, reflecting on childhood games and fantasy and having a life party.

I really dont like this cd very much. The first song is pretty decent but it went downhill fast after that. These guys are wonderful musicians but they're limiting themselves with mediorce songs containing some of the most simplistic, grammar school-level lyrics i've ever heard. In my humble opinion, they should enlist a songwriting partner and feature their great playing abilities much more. This is like stevie ray vaughn playing disco. Turn henry loose!!!

I've purchased every CD the Boys have made and just when I think they can't make a better CD....they did. Rockpango is definitely a must have for any music lover. The best thing about the Los Lonely Boys, they sound just as good doing their music live as they sound on their CDs. Rockpango is definitely a "must have" for any music lover!!!

Combining it’s stark mixture of electrifying rock and roll, high-swinging solos, first
rate performing, enthralling sounds, jamming R&B, empowerment, new directions in
their music, great fun and songs that gives you hope and determination, Los Lonely
Boys delivers another blockbuster hit with this garage rock masterpiece. Released
in 2011, Rockpango (it mean Rock Party in Spanish) would present both critics and
listeners a new and diverse form on the trademark Texican Rock as it expand upon
their roots-based rock and roll that truly defines Los Lonely Boys. Showcased with
an exhilarating track set of new classics including American Idle, Fly Away, Love In
My Veins, 16 Monkeys (one of their more comical jams and beloved hits), the folk-
rock song Smile and the title track, this CD includes the powerful song Change The
World (not to be confused by the Eric Clapton classic) as it confronts the social and
economic troubles from the late-2000’s and early-2010’s, which also gives us a ray
of hope. Also for fans of the band who happens to have children, they may want to
be cautious of the track Porn Star, which means the fans may want to be vigilant of
it (in reality, the porn industry is very dangerous, mostly corrupt, riddled with abuse
and can increase prejudice against women and homosexuals), but you will find this
entire album to be a truly highly enjoyable masterpiece while the deluxe edition will
even present you a recorded in-the-studio 24-minute Outtakes’ rehearsal track that
features the band clowning around and practicing, which make this the perfect buy.
Now Let’s Partee’ With Los Lonely Boys!
