Album Review: Lenny Kravitz: Black and White America
Black and White America
I kind of see where Kravitz was trying to go with this album. His style has always been knee deep (Yes that George Clinton reference) in the retro '70s vibe. Here he gets really funky and I commend him on it. When the album is really good it is really good, but there are a lot of times when it is just free falling.
"Stand" (Track 7) is a track that just seems bland, but there are other tracks like "Rock Star City Life" that are really fun and catchy. Then there are tracks like "Liquid Jesus" and "Looking Back on Love" that are really cool and really funky. There are a lot parts are like but the album is uneven as hell. There a chunks where I was almost falling asleep.
By the way. Lenny don't repackage "Always On The Run" as another song ("Come on and Get It"). You're better than that.
