Editors’ Notes

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.

Customer Reviews

Finally

Wake up America and listen to some good peaceful music for once. Great job Lenny

YES!!!

It is sad when you are down to your last few dollars and you still are in deep, deep debating about buying new tune anyway. This brand new album is a must, if you like rock. Lenny never disappoints. Just when I thought there may be a slowing up of new music Lenny Kravitz comes through. Tunes that caught my ear: "Super Love", "Black and White America", "In the Black", "Liquid Jesus", "Come On And Get It", "Boongie Drop", "I Can't Be Without You", "Looking Back On Love", "Sunflower".

HUGE! Epic album brings Lenny back with best album in 15 years

I am enjoying this album so much. It's like Lenny's "Song In The Key Of Life" or "Sign Of The Times." Epic album with classics like "Superlove" and "Faith Of A Child." He channels Marvin Gaye on "Liquid Jesus" and James Brown or Fred Wesley on "Life Ain't Ever Been Better Than It Is Now." "Looking Back On Love" is an amazing journey of its own. Soundtrack to 2011! bravo

Biography

Born: May 26, 1964 in New York, NY

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Rock music in the 1980s had completely lost the gritty feel of earlier eras, until Lenny Kravitz rediscovered the magic formula. Kravitz's sonic template combined good old-fashioned rock & roll with glam, soul, and psychedelia, making him a massive success. He made a splash straight out of the gate with his album Let Love Rule. After that, he de-emphasized the flower-power aspects of his music and began moving toward a heavier rock sound. This progression brought him such huge hits as "Are You...
