Nineteen years after making his debut with Let Love Rule, Lenny Kravitz, forever the flower child, is still preaching about the power of love. And while not making any radical changes—the dude remains a disciple of classic rock—he has rarely delivered his message with more passion and hook-heavy punch. From the anthemic "Love Revolution," which calls for a "new constitution," to the country-tinged ballad "If You Want It," one of several tunes that reveal a deeper spirituality, Kravitz is in top form. The album closes with two antiwar songs, including "Back in Vietnam," which, addressing the Iraq conflict, draws unfortunate parallels with the past.
