Lenny Kravitz


  • Virgin

He's always been a fave among his rock 'n' roll peers, but Lenny Kravitz finally scored his big breakthrough in 1998, when his 5 album took off—thanks to tracks like “Fly Away,” and his cover of the Guess Who's “American Woman.”

Though this is his first full album of new material since then, there's not a whole lot new to be heard on Lenny. The multi-instrumentalist is still mining old riffs while churning out his soul-drenched brand of psychedelic-styled rock. The layers are thick, but the rhythms are plodding on cuts like “Yesterday Is Gone (My Dear Kay),” the repetitive “Believe in Me,” and the decidedly droning “God Save Us All.”

The lazy “Let's Get High” does have some fine singing and a perfectly infectious hook, but Kravitz sounds impassioned only once here—when he rips through the hard rockin' “Bank Robber Man,” which details his highly-publicized run-in with Miami police when he was the victim of a case of mistaken identity.
