Che esordio, quello di Lenny Kravitz ! Un compendio di musica nera e rock'n'roll aggiornato agli anni 80. Lenny suona tutti gli strumenti, oltre a cantare, e questo è un limite, insieme a quello di una produzione artigianale. A salvarlo ed anzi a rendere "Let love rule" un piccolo grande capolavoro imperfetto è la scrittura, incredibilmente matura: ci sono qui almeno tre grandi canzoni, degne dei giganti del passato ma tutto l'album è a grandi livelli. In seguito tutto sarebbe diventato più patinato e quasi privo di interesse.

It hasn't dated at all well. It's all full of Pastiche and derivative rock and soul. Heavily influenced by the Beatles and Jimi Hendrix it's a kind of journey through a sixties album seen through the eyes of an eighties Lenny Kravitz. So-so.

A mix of blues/hard rock and funk, but wait... a bit of rhythm/blues/and R&B... dude just made music fun again.

Sounding organic and alive this is a thoroughly impressive debut. Conjuring recollections of the paisley-soaked '60s and the lush sounds of '70s soul, all distilled through the multicultural flowering of the late '80s. Much like Prince, he plays nearly every instrument on the record, making this essentially the work of a one-man band. Crafting songs that are catchy with colourful grooves and strong hooks makes the retro-rich "Let Love Rule" a fantastic trip.

This album blends a lot of influences from rock to soul. It is Lenny's first and Lenny's best. As far as I am concerned it went downhills from here...
