    LENNY shows that Mr. Kravitz doesn't plan on stepping down from his pedestal atop the rock world any time soon. Following his 8X platinum GREATEST HITS package, Lenny's self-titled release is appropriately his most personal yet. The multi-talented Kravitz produced and wrote the album, and played most of the instruments himself. "Battlefield Of Love" has a cool, effortless vibe and an indelible, radio-friendly hook. "If I Could Fall In Love" and "A Million Miles Away" both feature strong vocals and effects-laden choruses. "Yesterday Is Gone (My Dear Kay)" is a sorrowful ballad that ranks amongst Kravitz's best. "Believe in Me" (with its effective acoustic guitar solo) and "Stillness Of Heart" (sporting an excellent string arrangement) show off this craftsman's melodic songwriting skills. "God Save Us All" is a guaranteed arena anthem, while "Bank Robber Man" is an account of being falsely accused of a bank heist. LENNY makes its statement in a slightly more subtle fashion than Kravitz's previous efforts, but is no less soulful.

  • Critic Reviews
    Rolling Stone (11/8/01, pp.45-6) - 3.5 stars out of 5 - "... the Krav matches his ambition as a rock star with his modesty as a musical craftsman...steadily warming to his 70s schtick..."
    Entertainment Weekly (11/02/01, pp.75-6) - "...Delivers dependably hooky rock music in the tradition of past heavyweights..." - Rating: B-
    Q (12/01, p.139) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...A heady swirl of rock, soul and hippy lyrics. The album feels fantastic and it's full of hits..."
