Lenny Kravitz – Black And White America (Roadrunner/Atlantic, 2011)

BACK TO THE FUNK

After a successful love adventure shaped into an album “Love Revolution”, Lenny Kravitz wanted to try something different. “Black and White America” is his own time machine which he uses to get in touch with his childhood music. It is a retrospective of the music from the ‘60s, ‘70s and ‘80s with exploration of genres such as funk, disco and soul. Album has catchy summer hits, Marvin Gaye charisma love songs and Isaac Hayes Shaft-like funky tunes with a little bit of synth-pop and disco feeling.

This is most certainly not a typical Lenny Kravitz album, but all in all it’s a decent record which is meant to be listened on a vinyl so you can get its groove.

Recommended songs: “Black And White America”, “Come On Get It”, “Liquid Jesus”, “Stand”, “Superlove”, “Looking Back On Love”, “Dream”.

POVRATAK FANKU

Nakon uspešne avanture sa „Love Revolution“ albumom, Leni Kravic je želeo da proba nešto drugačije. „Black And White America“ je njegova svojevrsna vremenska mašina koju koristi da bi ponovo osetio muziku iz svog detinjstva. U pitanju je retrospektiva muzike iz ’60ih, ’70ih i ’80ih sa proputovanjem kroz žanrove poput fanka, diskoa i soula. Disk ima pevljive letnje hitove, harizmatične i ljubavne pesme vične Marvinu Geju i Ajzak Hejzove Šaftovske fanki numere sa uplivima sint-popa i diskoa.

Ovo definitivno nije ploča tipična za Lenija Kravica, ali je generalno pristojan album koji je kao stvoren za slušanje na vinilu ne bi li ga osetili na pravi način.

Preporučujem pesme: “Black And White America”, “Come On Get It”, “Liquid Jesus”, “Stand”, “Superlove”, “Looking Back On Love”, “Dream”.
