Customer Reviews

This album flows very well from one song to the other even though it encompasses a lot of styles and it did do Lenny a lot of good careerwise.

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.
H. R. Rondilla
Lenny has a wonderful ability to impregnant just about every different style of music into his work creating a totally different mood in each song.

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.

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.

Lenny Kravitz redefined the 'alternative' scene in March of 1993 with his massive dreadlocks and career launching classic "Are You Gonna Go My Way?" after melancholy and angst-ridden bands like Pearl Jam, STP and Nirvana had dominated the airwaves for well over a year. This album made it ok to just rock again.
Kravitz's influences are often-times transparent, but that doesn't prevent it from being great rock-n-roll music. While many consider the title track a direct "rip-off" from Jimi Hendrix, there are several other obvious influences throughout his music, widely ranging from John Lennon to Prince to Bob Marley to Led Zeppelin.
Bearing in mind that Kravitz was still very young as a performer, "Are You Gonna Go My Way?" was an impressive accomplishment. Only three of the songs from this album (the title track, Heaven Help and Believe) made it onto the Greatest Hits album, so this album is a must for any true Kravitz fan, and certainly a great addition to the penultimate "90s" collection.

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.
