By 2001, Lenny Kravitz had already been established as a major star. With
five albums and a Greatest Hits package under his belt, he was ready to continue
onward with new material. Lenny was released, and once again, it's another
album of common-sounding Kravitz tunes. Very entertaining in the like, Kravitz
still can rock, with songs from this album ranging in Rock, a bit bluesy, and
"Battlefield Of Love" is a common Kravitz rocker, leading off this release.

Although I really didn't care for the harder-edged rock of "Bank Robber Man,"
"Let's Get High" is a nice easy song to listen to, and a good feeling to end this
Lenny is a good album. At this point in Kravitz's career, he really doesn't
have to prove to anyone that he is a superstar. His albums capture the heart and
soulfulness of a rock performer. All of his albums are quite spectacular, although
Circus may have been showing a darker side, since Kravitz was experiencing some
rather hard times in his life. Kravitz's music is exceptional; there's no doubt, and
it's great to listen to new music from him, expanding his musical career with new
