Lenny Kravitz 5

Compact Disc CD: 7243 8 45605 2 Compact Disc

  Lenny Kravitz has always been a really cool dude who knows how to make good music. His previous album Circus was lacking compared to his first two, but my faith in him was reborn when I heard 5. The entire disc is laced with funk that just makes you want to dance. Feel silly dancing around in your living room playing air guitar? Well don’t because music is supposed to be fun, and if you don’t let yourself have fun, then life will suck and I’ll pay for the bullet. ;-) Returning to the music though, Kravitz is one of the few mainstream musicians that has managed to stay fresh instead of getting stuck in a pop culture rut. So many of the big buck musicians nowadays have given in to their teen-bop fans and produced mainstream crap. It’s good to see Kravitz still busting out his best. Don’t let the catchy single "Fly Away" fool you, the rest of the album is quite different. The tune rocks, but it doesn’t reflect the coolness the rest of the disc exhibits. It’s refreshing to hear something new every once in a while. If you’re like me and are bored sick of most of the mediocre junk you hear on the radio nowadays, try this out. The recording isn’t perfect. There is some odd mixing of voices and distortion pedals galore, but it’s the music that matters, and that side of the album is rock solid. I mean that, there’s not a dud on the disc. All thirteen songs have their own value and character. There’s more than one flavor on the disc and chances are that you won’t like every song on it, but take a chance and try something new.

Enjoyment: 75

Sound Quality: 50
