Lenny Kravitz’s 2001 album, titled “Lenny”, has the sound and feel of a 1970’s record (excluding production value, of course). Dominated by distorted electric guitar melodies, this album lives up to Kravitz’s signature sound. Make sure to hear “God Save Us All”, his attempt to light a fire in humanity to take action, saying “There’s too much poverty, pain and strife. Why aren’t we trying to improve, this thing called life? What are we going to do about it?” These lyrics still apply today, maybe all we need is a poke in the right direction from Lenny.
