All Music Guide - John D. Buchanan
This ninth studio album from the soulful rocker is the follow-up to 2008's It Is Time for a Love Revolution. His long-awaited "funk" album, which has been in the works for more than seven years, it sees him digging deep into the '60s and '70s to produce a work that is undeniably funky while also incorporating elements of bubblegum pop and his trademark old-school hard rock guitar sound. Producing and playing almost all of the instruments on the album himself, Kravitz has given it a warm, retro analog feel.

    Rock America

    "Black and White America" by Lenny Kravitz is a good quality cd that is filled with electic music. My two favorite songs on "Black and White America" are "Sunflower" (featuring Drake) and "Rock Star City Life". "Sunflower" (featuring Drake) is a unique song that is about someone that brings happiness and fun into a person's life. "Sunflower" denotes being in love with someone that is part of the sunshine of life. "Rock Star City Life" is a musical track about someone who has a zest for life. "Black and White America" is good for anyone who enjoys a diverse range of music on their cd.
