Biography

LENNY KRAVITZ
BLACK AND WHITE AMERICA

For his ninth album, Lenny Kravitz found much of his inspiration close to home. In fact, the very spirit of BLACK AND WHITE AMERICA came from the locations in which the music was made—from a tiny, 400-person community in the Bahamas to the streets of Paris. And out of his experiences as a true citizen of the planet, his first new songs in ... Read more in Amazon's Lenny Kravitz Store

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The irony of Are You Gonna Go My Way is that, by the release of his third album, Lenny Kravitz had finally started internalizing the influences of his musical heroes--Curtis Mayfield, Prince, John Lennon, and Sly Stone--who had been so nakedly copped on Let Love Rule and Mama Said. So what becomes the album's big hit? The title track, a Jimi Hendrix rip-off if there ever was one. Kravitz backslides elsewhere, too: "Is There Any Love in Your Heart" is plainly drawn from Led Zeppelin and "Eleutheria" from Bob Marley, while "Believe" takes a more inventive approach--its chorus is in the style of the Beatles, while the verses and guitar solo again recall Led Zep. What's especially damning about the album though, is that the more Kravitz strikes out on his own, the more lackluster his songs become, evidenced by the dippy come-on "Black Girl" and the weak psychedelia of "My Love." --Daniel Durchholz

Yeah, I think I feel good with my song ratings above.

Although this album does have songs that have similarities to other artists, the majority of the songs were written, arranged and even produced by Lenny Kravitz!

Any rock fan will love this album and become an admirer of Lenny Kravitz.

Lenny Kravitz follows up wildly successful multi platinum "Mama Said" with this chart scorcher that is sure to please anyone from the hard core metal junkie to the light reggae listener. It has sweet ballads crooned with Kravitz's soul searching tenor (Black Girl) as well as ear pounding guitar riffs (Are You Gonna Go My Way). He covers the emotional gambit along with a mind boggling array of instruments and recording techniques. He produces and writes almost all 11 tracks with help from members of his band Craig Ross and musical associate Henry Hirsh. He garnered many award nominations for this album and is virtually guaranteed future musical success with the unbelievable amount of vocal, musical and lyrical talent that he possesses.

After reading an editorial review on Lenny's album Are You Gonna Go My Way, me being a die-hard Lenny Kravitz fan, I had to comment against the cruel words.

First of all, how many artists out there can say that they have not had any other musical influences while writing their own music? If you listen closely to most popular music of today, it pretty much all sounds alike...that is probably why it is called "Popular Music". Although this album does have songs that have similarities to other artists, the majority of the songs were written, arranged and even produced by Lenny Kravitz! Like an editor said in his review "Believe takes a more inventive approach--its chorus is in the style of the Beatles..." yes, some of the songs do emulate the artists that inspire him but the key words here are "in the STYLE of the Beatles". But don't take away Lenny's credibility and ability to write his own songs by writing such harsh opinions. But now I would like to express my views on not only this album but also on Lenny as an artist.

Can you find me an artist that does not have music that reflects their influences? It is highly unlikely. Music is a source of inspiration, and influence. Musicians always have an influence and it will always be seen and heard through their craft. If anything, the fact that after hearing Lenny's album, you were reminded of artists such as the Beatles or Led Zepplin and Bob Marley, is a positive thing. To be in the same caliber of those artists is truly a compliment. Lenny can sound like other artists...but no one can sound like Lenny.

This is Lenny's 3rd album from 1993 after his 1989 debut ("Let Love Rule") and solid 1991 follow-up ("Mama Said"). And while his first two albums were also plenty good, if you're going to own one Lenny Kravitz cd, this is the one to have! And the re-mastering and bonus materials here make the Deluxe Version the one to get since the sound on the original release was a bit muddy and 20 years later, a little outdated, but more on that in a minute.

Musically, the title track for "Are You Gonna Go My Way" is a solid rocker that Led Zeppelin would be proud of as is "Is There Any Love In Your Heart", but he offers much more in lighter ballad type songs like "Believe", "Heaven Help" and "Just Be A Woman", plus the funk and R&B of "Come On And Love Me" and "Sugar".

All in all, it's a diverse yet unified album of very strong songs crossing and mixing several genres into Lenny's own vision and style. While some complain that the influences on Lenny's music (Hendrix, The Beatles, Sly and the Family Stone) are too easily recognizable, I'll leave that kind of whining to the critics. Good music is good music and THIS is good music, perhaps the best album of 1993.

Disc 1 follows the original 11 album tracks with 7 more tracks, several of which come from a 1993 bonus cd included with the vinyl edition of the "Are You Gonna Go My Way" album. The extra tracks are a mixed bag overall but worth having, particularly the bass-driven "Ascension", the Hendrix inspired "Brother" and perhaps his best known non-album track, "Spinning Around Over You" which was released as a double A-side single but originally featured on the "Reality Bites" movie soundtrack.

In the mid 1990s, I heard a concert promotion radio ad that was basically introducing the performer to be "The World's Greatest Rock and Roll Star". When they announced that star to be Lenny Kravitz, I must admit, I nearly drove off the road when I heard that. I had realized Kravitz had some commercial success and had a nice following, but "World's Greatest Rock and Roll Star"? - come on! However, now about a decade later, as I have begun to get a deeper appreciation for what Rock music has to offer, I now realize that perhaps there is some real merit to that radio ad. I'm still not ready to put Kravitz up there with the upper echelon of Rock with the Paul McCartneys, the Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteens, or even Billy Joels - however, it is safe to say that Kravitz could easily be one of the great revelations of the 1990s. Kravitz established his potential on his debut album, "Let Love Rule". On that album Kravitz utilized the "Minneapolis Sound" (similar to the style made famous by Prince) by incorporating a mix of Funk and Rock. By 1993, Kravitz was soon expanding his sound and his third album "Are You Gonna Go My Way" would help to take things to the next level. Kravitz also integrates his personal life experiences into this album.

Many have said that this album provides an "edge" - much of this probably resulting from his failed marriage to Lisa Bonet. While I can see this, ultimately I feel that this album actually shows more of Kravitz's development as an artist as opposed to anger.

Here is a song by song synopsis of the collection:

"Are You Gonna Go My Way": This song is all about Kravitz's guitar work as it is going to set a high level of intensity. However the percussion blends perfectly here as well.
