  • Summary: Lenny Kravitz's sixth album features a mix of retro rock and mid-tempo ballads.

Top Track

Believe in Me
Where's the love we had? When did it go bad or am I just insecure? I give all I can, baby, I'm your man Tell me what we're in this for, remind me I... See the rest of the song lyrics

  1. It's an invigorating, electric blend that is pushed over the top by lyrics that are smart and spiritual without ever pressing too hard.
  2. 80
    Lenny benefits from being Kravitz's most consistent album in years, if ever.
  3. As before, it's a heady swirl of rock, soul and hippy lyrics. However, it feels fantastic and, unless the record company is snoring soundly, it's full of hits.
  4. Nothing on Lenny can match "Again," but he gets close sometimes, lumbering with a meatball sense of purpose that's all his own.
  5. While it's hard not to wish that Kravitz's music was just a few degrees better than it actually is, he has improved over the years.
  6. Spin

    No matter how much Lenny plays it hard, there isn't that much difference between his ballads and his rock moves. [Dec 2001, p.151]
  7. Uncut
    40
    This eponymous effort does little to dispel the notion that he's a bit of a swaggering caricature. [Jan 2002, p.142]
