Lenny Kravitz is a certified Rockstar if you didn't know!
Here at Unhinged Reviews, we feel it's only right to give props where props are due and Kravitz deserves his just do. This is a multi-talented individual with a passion for stellar music and keeper of a rebel spirit. "Fly Away" is a mantra from his album 5 that is an anthem for that free spirit we all love to be around.
If you had to leave to the planet on a song this would be the one, it was recorded on earth, but it's got intergalactic lyrics.
From the moment you first hear the sound, you are captivated by the guitar riffs beckoning to your
spirit causing you let go of your earthly constraints. Telling you to stand up and take any form that you desire, as you expose your primal self to the world. So yeah, like I said Lenny Kravitz is a true Rockstar by any definition, one whose music will play on long after he's gone.
If you look at Lenny and ask yourself, "What makes him so special". You'll see that his outwardly image can't be denied, from the radical hair styles, tats and piercings to the vintage form fitting apparel. A lot of young musicians today attempt to don similar styles, but it just doesn't look right on them. You've got to have the swagger to pull it off, your music and actions have to be convincing enough for people to believe in your craft. Lenny does this with ease, no awkward looking geek-chic here, just bold confidence that one must accept.
"I wish that I could fly into the sky, so very high"-Lenny Kravitz(Fly Away)
Let's talk about the lyrics of song for a second. The song centers around that internal burn to choose our own will. We often work 9-5 jobs that we don't like or conform to the demands of others for way to long which makes us unhappy. We often feel confined, constrained and bound to the box we've been placed in, but what if we were able to just "Fly Away"? Get far away from anything that crushed or hurt our spirit in any way, would you go? Would you leave the insanity within your cube to travel the unknown and be immersed in a different sensation good or bad?
Escape should be an emotion, when you look at the reasons people take drastic measures to change their current feelings or situation. No one wants to leave when everything is peachy and all fuzzy. People want to leave when SHTF or it's just too much to bear for anything longer than the next nanosecond. When is the last time you escaped and felt the hands of authority, dictatorship and conformity slip off your shoulders? Been a while has it? Well, why not go today?
Now with that last statement, a free spirit would not even be reading this line, as they would already be walking out the door. For those of us still here, keep reading. It's not always that easy to just leave our situations or feelings, so we must find new and creative ways to escape. Whether we find a new hobby, change jobs, leave our mates or even move to another country. You have to decide what escape means for you and be on the next thing smoking or your going to be stuck in the reoccurring insanity of your current life.
And if your still reading, there's always an incredible song like this to provide you with a quality retreat to the world of music. Music is an amazing experience that we are allowed to share with others, it doesn't matter if we are the creator or the listener. We take flight through songs, as they allow our minds to dance and sway to the outer limits of our axis. Lenny Kravitz knows what it's like to want escape and I believe that is the reason we have this high grade ear candy to blow our minds.
