Lenny's new album continues in the same vein as some of his past releases. It's not necessarily ground breaking but that does not mean to say that it's not affecting. Kravitz can still write lyrics and craft songs that are so emotive that one can be easily overwhelmed. Through his vivid imagery and lovelorn lyrics Kravitz can still both move you and get a party started.
Standout tracks from this release prove to be the exciting and uplifting 'Battlefield of Love' which you will find yourself bobbing your head to immediately. In addition to this are the slow, soulful 'Stillness of Heart' and Believe in Me'. Not to be ignored are the equally impressive 'Dig In' and 'Pay to Play'.
In all, Kravtiz brought forth an ecletic impressive album. Though there's not a single as deeply moving as 'Again' and the the album itself is not as impressive as past Lenny releases such as '5', I reiterate that 'Super Soul Fighter is BACK!!!'
"Lenny" the CD kind of varies from this formula in that it is primarily a rock album with rockers like "Dig In", "Bank Robber Man" and "Battlefield of Love", soft rockers like "God save us all" and "Yesterday is Gone (My Dear Kay) and A Million Miles Away. All of the songs are solid and after a few listens you find yourself singing along to them. This album also has a spritual vibe of positivity throughout which makes it an uplifting experience. There is also songs on the CD where Lenny experiments with different sounds (Believe In Me, Pay to Play, and You were in My Heart). Overall while there is no standout breakout major hit on this CD (Dig in is probably the only radio hit on the CD, this is a good record that I highly recommend, if you are tired of listening to the standard radio fare like I am.
"Yesterday is Gone (My Dear Kay)" are beautiful and sincere love songs. The rockers of records past are certainly not gone-- the single "Dig In" and opening track "Battlefield of Love" are funky and ridiculously cool. He also displays a genuine spirituality in songs like "Believe in Me" and "God Save Us All". And any Kravitz album would be incomplete without the requisite '70s throwback song, here in the form of closing track "Let's Get High. "Lenny" is the perfect summer album. Throw it on the stereo and try not to think too hard-- just let it do its thing.
I overall enjoy "Lenny", but it most certainty is not his most accessible work yet isn't necessarily a soul searching album. Then again, only Lenny really knows for sure. It seems like Lenny is just making a record, to make a record. Like he's Britney Spears (no offense to fans, but can't she take one year off?). Also, while the album flows nicely, it just seems to repeat itself a few times instrumentally. I love Lenny's playing but even Prince knew to get a band to help every so often.Read more ›
