Price: $37-39

Freedom does a body good, and it's evident from Los Lonely Boys' fourth proper album, Rockpangos, their first since leaving Epic. It's the band's finest effort to date, showcasing previously unseen ambition and depth. While their ability to bridge Tejano, blues and rock was always evident, the slickness of the production sapped their energy and couldn't disguise uninspired lyrics. In contrast, their latest sounds uncaged and fancy-free, ranging from hot-footed rock with plenty of searing solos to tasteful applications of the Tosca String Quartet on surprisingly supple ballads. It's all delivered with crackling spirit that invites you in rather than making you question what they're selling. With The Kicks. —Chris Parker
