LOS LONELY BOYS

ROCKPANGA

2011-04-05

Rockpango is a word made by Henry, JoJo and Ringo Garza meaning rock party. On their fourth studio and best since their 2004 self titled release, Los Lonely Boys throws exactly that. The CD begins with the rocker American Idle a track dealing with the need to make a dollar, but how we forget to love and take care of one another. The second track "Fly Away" is an acoustic piece with some nice guitar Henry Garza and could represent this discs Heaven. The track "16 Monkeys" is the most humorous and funky disc found on this disc. The title track returns to the rock sounds with Henry definitely lifting some guitar rifts from Jimmy Hendrix. The track "Smile" showcases the Pop sounds of the brothers with some nice strings thrown into the mix. The worst track on this disc is the novelty song "Porn Star" which includes a short rap and could be dedicated to Charlie Sheen. The CD ends as it begins with a rocker proclaiming that no matter what we should never give up on love. Reviewed By: Gregg Saur
