In each instance, Kravitz was able to create a fully realized homage to the greatest classic-rock station in the world, co-mingling the power of Zeppelin and Hendrix with the velvety swing of Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye. Lenny Kravitz also has 80 bad songs. I could go on for at least another 78 tracks, but you get the idea. However, in defiance of simple math, I generally like Lenny Kravitz because of those three great songs.
