I have listened to Kravitz since working in a record store (yeah, remember those?) back in 1989 when he dropped "Let Love Rule". Let me tell you, he, along with Living Color, were the only black musicians making rock and roll, which was very unusual (still is, in fact). At first, I was seduced by "Strut", but with more and more listens, the album began to get weaker and weaker as a whole. It's just not one of his finer albums. Sure, if you want to put something on in the background and have a good time, but not pay too much attention, then "Strut" is a fine album.
Also, as a side note, what's with the album cover? We all know Kravitz has a masculine, hairy chest. What now? Smooth as a baby's bottom? What for? At 50? Act your age, mama, not your shoe size!
Here's how "Strut" compares with Kravitz's previous works:
1989 Let Love Rule: Four Stars
1991 Mama Said: Three Stars
1993 Are You Gonna Go My Way: Three and a Half Stars
1995 Circus: Three Stars
1998 5: Three and a Half Stars
2001 Lenny: Four Stars
2004 Baptism: Three Stars
2008 It Is Time For A Love Revolution: Three and a Half Stars
2011 Black And White America: Five Stars
2014 Strut: Three Stars
Not very often you spend your money and love every song on the CD, this is an exception! If Mr. Kravitz by chance happens to read this review or one of his people reads this, please know that you have a new and loyal fan in me! Love, love the entire CD, please go out and purchase this you will not be disappointed!
After 25 years in the music business, Lenny Kravitz continues to evolve musically in new and creative ways. From the title track "Strut" to my personal favorite, "New York City", the memorable songs are endless. If you want to hear the depth of Lenny's musical inspiration, this set should be your next purchase. I can't wait to see what Lenny will share with us over the next 25 years. His musical gifts are truly inspirational.
