The cover indicates that Are You Gonna Go My Way is Lenny Kravitz's bid for rock stardom. Designed in the style of an early-'70s record, it features Kravitz in hippie clothing, apparently exposing himself to a photographer -- in other words, he's a dangerously sexy counterculture rebel. That may have been true in 1970, but in 1993, he simply sounds like a weird sideshow exhibit, the man who never lived past 1973. Of course, it's easy to make such potshots, but Kravitz opens himself up to such attacks. No other artist, especially a successful one, has been quite so devoted to the past and ignorant of the present. Since he has considerable talent for songcraft and production, Kravitz isn't nearly as bad as he could be, and Are You Gonna Go My Way is just as enjoyable and more accomplished than its predecessors. This time around, Hendrix is his chief influence, as evidenced by the roaring title track, and he does expand that with his traditional Lennon, Curtis Mayfield, and Prince obsessions. Song for song, it's his most consistent album, although by the end of the record, his painstaking reproduction of classic rock sounds begins to appear a bit too studied, suggesting that Kravitz may have hit a creative wall. Nevertheless, that does nothing to diminish the enjoyment of this record. © Stephen Thomas Erlewine /TiVo

The title is a tip-off: Lenny Kravitz is a hippie, something that was commonplace 20 years before his debut, Let Love Rule, and was familiar five years later when he scaled the charts with Are You Gonna Go My Way, but was practically unheard of in 1989 when the Grateful Dead were reaping the benefits of hippies turning into establishment. Kravitz had yet to become a classic rock caricature and he could still surprise on this unformed, endearingly unwieldy first record, where he split the difference between John Lennon, Curtis Mayfield, David Bowie, and Prince, sometimes exhibiting too clear of a debt to his idols but more often getting by on a combination of chutzpah and pastiche, something that winds up as an enormously appealing guilty pleasure. Kravitz has a tendency to overreach lyrically, striving to speak deep truths about big themes from world peace to child abuse, but the winning thing about Let Love Rule is how it plays as sheer sound, evoking memories of the paisley-drenched '60s and the lush sounds of '70s soul, all filtered through the multicultural flowering of the late '80s. Remarkably for an album that's essentially the work of a one-man band, Let Love Rule never feels stiff or insular -- it feels roomy and open, testament to Kravitz's talents as a producer -- but the record remains one of his best because it also has one of his greatest collections of songs, chief among them the stately, psychedelic march of "I Build This Garden for Us," the hippie-funk of "Sittin' on Top of the World," the Hendrixian riffs of "Freedom Train," the urban groove of "Mr. Cab Driver," and the surging "Let Love Rule," songs that created Kravitz's sound and persona and remain among his most engaging work. © Stephen Thomas Erlewine /TiVo

Dit negende studioalbum van de soulvolle rocker is de opvolger van It Is Time for a Love Revolution uit 2008. Dit is zijn langverwachte funkalbum, dat meer dan zeven jaar in de maak is geweest. Hierop hoor je hoe hij diep graaft in de jaren 60 en 70 om werk af te leveren dat ontegenzeglijk funky is, terwijl het ook elementen van bubblegumpop en zijn typische hardrock gitaargeluid bevat. Kravitz heeft bijna alle instrumenten zelf ingespeeld en het album zelf geproduceerd. Hij heeft het een warm analoog retrogeluid meegegeven. © John D. Buchanan /TiVo

Booklet
De recente obsessie van Lenny Kravitz voor het gitaarleger van Jimmy Page gaf hem nieuwe kracht voor zijn alombekende esthetiek, waarmee hij zijn re-creaties van het verleden met een nieuw kleurpalet kon behandelen. Deze nieuwe laag verf helpt; It Is Time for a Love Revolution voelt fris aan, mede geholpen door het feit dat hij enkele van zijn beste klassieke rock potpourri's in jaren heeft geschreven, krachtige nummers die pakkend zijn met grotere harmonieën. Als sonische sculpturen zijn ze haast onweerstaanbaar. Wat sound betreft, is It Is Time for a Love Revolution een glorieus feest van plezierige retro-rock -- een feest van lege calorieën misschien, maar soms is een snelle hap lekkerder dan een vijf-gangen maaltijd. © Stephen Thomas Erlewine /TiVo

His look hasn’t changed. The same goes for his cocktail of vintage rock mixed with soul and funk. And yet, Lenny Kravitz makes a clean sweep with each new project. This eleventh − self-produced − album confirms his talents as a songwriter as well as sound producer. As usual, the New York artist calls upon his elders’ legacy (Marvin Gaye, Prince, Curtis Mayfield, John Lennon, Bill Withers) to make it his own and create pure and unadulterated Kravitz sounds. Whether they are intimate and very introspective, or openly engaged to underline the planet’s woes, the songs on this 2018 vintage effortlessly zigzag between funky uppercuts, stadium anthems and dance-floor soundtracks. And on the single Low, Lenny even grants himself a marquee (virtual) guest star with an iconic cry: Michael Jackson! Unsurprising, but effective as always! © Clotilde Maréchal/Qobuz
