iTunes Review

Lenny Kravitz is rock music’s great synthesizer of styles. He evokes an era of peace and love but he does so with modern sounds that don’t settle for simple retro. Now, a melody as powerpop as “In the Black” carries shades of the early 1970s, but there’s also a modern bite attached. The title track throws some ‘70s-styled funk into a tune that’s less overtly political than its title might suggest. “Come On Get It” and “Superlove” modernize the funk attack. “Rock Star City Life” is the kind of celebrity motif fans have come to expect from the man who openly idolizes Prince, Jimi Hendrix and John Lennon. Kravitz demands his sound be big. He teams up with Jay-Z and DJ Military for the hip-hop driven “Boogie Drop,” while his own “Stand” (not the Sly Stone tune) heats up over a thick synth riff. “Everything” toughens up the guitars for a Stones-like romp. “I Can’t Be Without You” has a lite-FM touch. The Deluxe Edition includes the falsetto-led, techno-layered bonus cut “War,” an acoustic version of the title track and videos for “Stand” and the live version of the title track.

Know your friends

I only heard it once and I bought three albums after that, to come to terms with how it made me feel. There's a lot of advice and hard won life lessons on the album. It made me sad because we've all been through these situations. Made me realize that I still have a lot of work to do on myself. So I went back in time, to the songs I was listening to, at the time I was in the situations that I felt I had no control over - where others won and had the upper hand over me. I could have done something at the time and I didn't know how. Black And White America gives me the advice that I needed to hear when I was alone and didn't know any better. It forces me to focus on my life now and do better... because people come and go, and the ones who stay, are the ones who care about you... and that you have to learn to care about, because they teach you all you are supposed to know about yourself. You change and influence each other... by bringing out the worst first, and then showing each other how much good is still buried deep inside, once the hate and anger is out of the way.
It's an album that will make its mark on me, because I needed it and I didn't even know. When you don't have expectations in life, the words you need to hear come out of no where.

very nice!!!

Cool album with a very nice sound. Lenny Kravitz sometimes remind me of paul stanley during the" rock and roll over album." anyway, I encourage people to buy and listen this latest production by Lenny cause it has cool touch to it. Very Nice!!!
