Music Review: Lenny Kravitz – 5
Haven’t you wondered where all those “perfect” albums have gone? It has seemed for
years now, the days of the album which you loved every song on it are finished. And then….Lenny Kravitz releases
the CD “5” his fifth effort.
This collection embraces good ole rock ‘n roll, funk and R&B with a dash of jazz. Imagine
Sly & the Family Stone, Earth, Wind & Fire, Miles Davis, Seal and Jimi Hendrix recording together! From
the first song, the party anthem, “Live” to the last, a slow building climactic power ballad, “Can’t
We Find A Reason,” “5” definitely has something for everyone.
This 13-song soon-to-be-classic disc also includes the current hit “Fly Away” and the
under appreciated first hit “If You Can’t Say No.” With incredible lyrics, powerful vocals and a pure
raw sound unlike most in the business today, “5” is truly the most underrated album of 1998 and is a
“must” in all music aficionados collections. This CD gets a full 5 Rock Ratings.
