Album Review

As the first album the band recorded after guitarist Henry Garza suffered a serious spinal injury when he fell off-stage during a concert, 2014's Revelation finds Los Lonely Boys revitalized. The Texan trio has never been constrained by genre, but here they let their imagination wild, dabbling in every sound or style that's ever tickled their fancy, easing into proceedings with a teasing bit of traditional Tex-Mex — "Blame It on Love" opens with little more than guitar, accordion, and voice — before diving into every roots or rock style they've ever hinted at in the past. This does include melodic AOR adult pop — "Give a Little More" could be mistaken for the great lost outtake from Santana's Supernatural — and one of the pleasures of Revelation is the ease with which Los Lonely Boys can do this kind of soft rock without losing earthiness. Much of this comes toward the front of the album, particularly in the one-two punch of the breezy island vibes of "It's Just My Heart Talking" and the sublime yacht rock homage "There's Always Tomorrow" (which could've torn up the airwaves in 1981), and although Revelation shifts gears toward the end of the album, accentuating both their conjunto and blues roots, they keep winding back to this easy melodic touch, whether it's in the steeped-in-the-'70s soul of "So Sensual" or crooning sweetly on "The Greatest Ever." Such a soft, welcoming touch is the thing crossovers are made of, and if there is an adventurous AAA station somewhere in America, it's possible to imagine about half of these songs providing the backbone of a regular playlist, but even if Los Lonely Boys don't strike radio gold with Revelation, its freshness proves that ten years after their 2004 breakthrough, the band is as lively as ever and, in some sly subtle ways, better than ever too.

Customer Reviews

I actually listened to the album

Many of the first ‘reviews’ here are people that just assume, as I did, that the boys would put out an amazing album as they have up until now. I got my preorder last night and have listened to the whole album 3 times now. I’m looking for something to like about it. This is the first album that the Garzas brought in a ‘professional’ producer for and the results are a mixed bag of styles that do not form a cohesive record. Aside from Henry’s distinctive vocals, 9-10 of the songs are un recognizable as LLB. This is the last time I will pre-order any of their music without being able to sample it beforehand.

Not the LLB I used to love!!

Don't know who got in their head and talked them into recording this crap but this is not the band that I used to really like. Totally not the rockin bluesy band they used to be. Totally disappointed!

At last

A new sound that is easy on the ears but still fun. They sound better than ever and thanks be that Henry is better! If "Blame it on Love" was any kind of road sign, then this album is a sure win. I absolutely recommend this album as a "must have".

Biography

Formed: 2000 in San Angelo, TX

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Hailing from San Angelo, Texas, Los Lonely Boys are a sibling trio whose music draws equally from rock, blues, Tex-Mex, conjunto, and tejano.

After that group broke up, Garza went solo, backed by his three...
