Raise Vi­bra­tion

Australian HIFI - - ROCK ON -

Mr Kravitz has, we gather, been driven to re­vive his re­volv­ing Rin­go­like mes­sage of love and peace as an an­ti­dote to what is, for some, a tor­tu­ous time in Amer­ica. Mu­si­cally many songs hark back to the sounds and themes of his fine first five al­bums, though oth­ers up­date his son­ics and soul in new direc­tions. Ad­mirably he doesn’t moan on specifics in the lyrics, doesn’t thrust anti-Trump­ism front and cen­tre—even his hope­ful re­quests to stop bomb­ing and re­assess the Mid­dle East sit­u­a­tion are couched in terms that would have fit the global sit­u­a­tion as well when he re­leased his first al­bum in 1989 as for this 11th, and sadly prob­a­bly for the rest of all our nat­u­ral lives. All the more achieve­ment to do this with de­lib­er­ate op­ti­mism, peace and love, rather than ran­cour and hate. Hands in the air, peo­ple, feel the vi­bra­tion, and per­haps we can lift up the Pen­tagon.
