Lenny Kravtiz, Baptism, Virgin

When Lenny Kravitz covered “American Woman” (poorly I might add), he entered into a realm of cheese from which he never really emerged. From that point on, Mr. Kravitz has always lurked in the background, not really providing much reason to pay attention. Baptism (Lenny’s latest) is boring and bland, lacking anything that would warrant pressing the repeat button. He seems stuck in this classic rock rut, retreading rather than revisiting. The Darkness bravely made the cheesy (and fun) arena rock sound their own, so why is Lenny unable to infuse some life into his own classic rock sound?

I've written for the local weekly The Coast for over a decade and have since taken to creating and writing for HAFILAX for even longer. I hope you enjoy the musings of a guy who has loved music for the better part of 4 decades, and has an album of concert tickets to show for it.
