LENNY KRAVITZ ALBUM ART RANKED

10 studio albums and one Greatest Hits compilation (as of Oct. 2015)
  1. 11. Let Love Rule ('89)
    An unusual choice for the debut album of an attractive dude. Not bad, but a little boring.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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. 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.
  7. 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."
  8. 4. 5 ('98)
    By this, Lenny's fifth album, he's feeling overexposed. He makes only a cursory appearance.
  9. 3. Greatest Hits ('00)
    This album art says, "Come at me, ladies. I took the button off my jeans to move things along."
  10. 2. Black and White America ('11)
    Defiance, innocence, and wisdom. Also, a cute '70s kid with a peace sign painted on his face.
  11. 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.
