Review: Lenny Kravitz – Fly Away (Rock)

This review covers the rock track Lenny Kravitz – Fly Away.

This track was released in 1998 on the album 5.

The track starts with a guitar. A drum kit and a clap joins the track. From there, the track pulls back a bit and the vocals come in for a verse. The guitars here have a slight wah effect.

From there, the vocals take the track into the main chorus as the lead guitars join the track. The vocals continue on right after for another verse while the lead guitars continue on.

After a series of claps, the vocals take the track into the main chorus again. This is capped off with an instrumental section with the lead guitars dropping out. The vocals make a reappearance in a smaller manner.

From there, the vocals take the track into the next round in the main chorus. The lad guitars, of course, rejoin the track in the process. The main chorus is extended at this point and even repeated. After that, the vocals lead the track out.

One thing this track has going for it is a sort of light free spirited mood. This is thanks to the upbeat guitars and vocals for the most part.

The guitars are definitely a highlight in this track because they add a whole lot of flow to the overall track. They have a presence, but not overly so which works well for the tracks overall mood.

I also think the vocals work quite well in this track. They can be a bit repetitive on the lyrics, but they have a very pleasant tone throughout.

Overall, there are a number of things this track gets right. It’s not a jump up and down in excitement type of track, but there’s plenty going for it. So, I’d say it’s an overall pretty solid track.
