Nearly 30 years into his career, Kravitz knows how to sculpt not just sounds, but a cohesive LP, and that kind of pro assurance, when combined with his earnest hippie beliefs, make Raise Vibration a sunny, affirming listen.


With his 11th studio album, Raise Vibration, Kravitz does just that, grabbing everything from Off The Wall-style dance floor jams to Johnny Cash-themed ballads by the balls.

Rolling Stone

Mostly, it’s Kravitz’s signature blend of rock and soul, love and social outrage, only this time with a little more bite.

FLOOD Magazine

The wait mostly paid off, as Kravitz manages a couple of genuine stylistic surprises here.

Slant Magazine

Raise Vibration's more serious shortcoming is its lyrics, which stumble whenever they reach for grand proclamations on the state of the world.

Spectrum Culture

There’s something oddly out of touch about Lenny Kravitz’s new record, Raise Vibration.

The first track is straight up Christian Rock... pretty sure he's a Scientologist though.
Fav Tracks: Who really are the monsters?, Here to love, the majesty of love, Johnny Cash
