LENNY KRAVITZ ALBUM ART RANKED
10 studio albums and one Greatest Hits compilation (as of Oct. 2015)
- •11. Let Love Rule ('89)An unusual choice for the debut album of an attractive dude. Not bad, but a little boring.
- •10. Lenny ('01)Combined with the album title, I assume this is meant to be a close up of him. You know, show us the real Lenny. Sunglasses are important to him.
- •9. Are You Gonna Go My Way ('93)The object or purveyor of the sexual gaze? While a woman stands in the foreground, the focus is on Lenny and his abs.
- •8. It Is Time for a Love Revolution ('08)This was Lenny's GW Bush/Iraq War era record. He also talks marriage. He's older, wiser, and looking past the present.
- •7. Strut ('14)Lenny wants us to know he's still got it. "It" being abs. Granted, he's the only person I'm okay with wearing a vest or blazer with no shirt (see the video for the single "Lady" off Baptism).
- •6. Circus ('95)I like this pose. The microphone and fame itself is a beast to be wrestled with. Curves and circles show up throughout.
- •5. Mama Said ('91)The feather boa and title express an appreciation if the feminine. One of this album's singles was "Stand By My Woman."
- •4. 5 ('98)By this, Lenny's fifth album, he's feeling overexposed. He makes only a cursory appearance.
- •3. Greatest Hits ('00)This album art says, "Come at me, ladies. I took the button off my jeans to move things along."
- •2. Black and White America ('11)Defiance, innocence, and wisdom. Also, a cute '70s kid with a peace sign painted on his face.
- •1. Baptism ('04)The Pièce de résistance. We have a gorgeous pool of dense red. We have flat-ironed hair. We have a nipple piercing. This is the clear winner.
