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

Product Description

Deluxe two disc edition includes bonus DVD. As the title indicates, the album is a thunderous rock 'n roll call-to-arms featuring Kravitz singing songs of a love revolution backed by a powerful blend of soul, funk, and jazz grooves and the undeniable, anthemic lyricism that's been his trademark from day one. Globally recognized and acclaimed rock musician Lenny Kravitz kicked off this album with his"Get on the Bus with the Love Revolution" club tour of nine select markets with tickets through MySpace. Winners travel on a Kravitz-designed custom tour bus and become part of the artist's tour family on the road with full backstage access to the live concert event. The lucky winners and their guests join Lenny on the road. This is Lenny Kravitz's 8th studio album including the singles 'Bring It On' and 'I'll Be Waiting', the album is the artist's first new release in over three years. 14 tracks. Virgin Records. 2008.

Amazon.com

Lenny Kravitz didn't reinvent the wheel for his eighth album--hardly a surprise from an artist who's long been accused of filtering the music of decades past through his own discerning muse. Kravitz is still clearly more interested in crowd pleasing than fishing for rock critic accolades, whether seasoning the rollicking "Bring It On" with shimmering doses of Anishka Shankar's sitar, or coloring "Good Morning" with Beatles-esque harmonic flourishes as did ELO long before him. The openly proselytizing "If You Want It" sets his praises of Jesus to a forceful mix of early Led Zepplin acoustic atmospherics and Jimmy Page-ish riffs, a formula that's escaped too many other Creed-obsessed Christian rockers. The layered vocals 'n' guitars of the ambitious sprawl "Long Sad Goodbye" are too defiantly bluesy to be merely chalked up as echoing Queen – or is it Muse? – while the funky groove of "Dancin' Til Dawn" would've done J. Geils proud. With Kravitz playing virtual one man band on most of the tracks, it's an album that again argues he's an encyclopedic master of primal rock rhythms and hooks. And, like his best work, this is a collection where form often willfully trumps function. --Jerry McCulley

4.0 out of 5 stars Rock N Roll, Baby! February 9, 2008
Format:Audio CD
In a career of 20 years there is little Lenny Kravitz hasn't done. He tried anything from Soul "It Ain't Over Til It's Over", Love Ballads "Again" Classic Rock Revival "Are You Gonna Go My Way", Electro Rock "Black Velveteen" and commercial trademark Rock with "Fly Away" that became one of his biggest hits in 1998. But it's been awhile since Lenny's early 90's glory days when he was rocking on the charts with song after song and his albums got good ratings from both critics and consumers. As popular as 5 (REISSUED WITH 2 BONUS TRACKS) was commercially it didn't get high votes from critics and as critically acclaimed as Lenny was, it didn't work as well for the consumers. And his latest album Baptism that defenitely had its moments but was embarrasing at times aswell was completely overlooked by anyone and only went gold. 4 years later Lenny has recovered well and he goes way back to Classic Rock, anyone recalls his Jimi Hendrix tribute "Are You Gonna Go my Way" and the more devote fans will also give him credit for his Guess Who cover "American Woman" but "It's Time For A Love Revolution" goes one step further, it's entirely Classic Rock with lethal riffs, amazing guitar solo's and high energy til the end. Sound wise it doesn't sound a day older then 1971 but it's faithful to the days when Rock music was still good and mattered. Read more ›

3.0 out of 5 stars Lenny Kravitz: Slight Return April 6, 2008
Format:Audio CD
For anyone who has been a fan of Lenny Kravitz from his first album, "Let Love Rule", this will indeed be a "slight return" to his
old form. Several tracks, including "Love Revolution", "Bring It On" and "Love Love Love" remind me of the feel of Lenny's earlier work.
However, there are also several tracks that feel forced, and almost
silly in their simplicity ("I Love The Rain" and "Back In Vietnam").
After Lenny's recent "pop" successes, I take comfort in the
fact that the Lenny I first became a fan of is still in there somewhere,
writing songs.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's a grower February 8, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Kravitz often comes across as a musician who's so meticulous about getting that vintage sound that he forgets to be inspired. That meticulousness can end up making the production just a little too slick. To complicate matters, he's heavy on catchy riffs and anthemic choruses, while often light on lyrics and adventurousness.

Personally, I think the single, "I'll Be Waiting," is one of the weaker tracks on the album, although it is representative of his sound. I would much sooner take the title song, or "Bring It On," "If You Want It," "I Love the Rain," or "Dancin' Til Dawn" with its smoking sax solo.

Once you get past the almost-precious trappings of the sound, you'll notice how much Kravitz is enjoying himself. And on those tracks I mentioned above, it's infectious. He slips through Southern fried rock, AOR, The Strokes, and Tattoo You-era Stones, and you have to admire his enthusiasm for the charm of rock n' roll in its many incarnations. The filler tracks kinda stand out for what they are, though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rock on, Lenny, rock on March 8, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Oh, my gosh, this album is beautiful! I've always loved what Lenny Kravitz does; with his blend of soulful vocals, funky style and rock-edged beats, he is totally unique and has carved out a niche for himself that to my knowledge, only he occupies. The hits over the years have been are always brilliant - "Are You Gonna Go My Way", "It Ain't Over 'Til It's Over", "Fly Away", et al - but I've always felt that the real heart & soul of the man was to be found on his album cuts.

The last album of his I bought was 2001's Lenny (2004's Baptism passed me by completely) and though it was the single "Dig In" that made me buy it (after I heard it playing in a clothes store) it was tunes like "If I Could Fall In Love", "Yesterday Is Gone (My Dear Kay)", "Stillness Of Heart", "Believe In Me", "A Million Miles Away" and "Let's Get High" (which is not a song about drugs, by the way), that made me fall in love with the album, though some of these were also subsequently released as singles.

I don't hear any stand out hit singles along the lines of the ones I mentioned at the top but the album is no less enjoyable for it. I was nodding my head, tapping my feet and humming along right from the first play. These are all fantastic tunes with great vocal performances, solid beats and lots of wailing guitar.
