We gave it a B

Obama’s so gonna put this on his iPod. Kravitz’s ninth album is a melting pot of funk, soul, rock, and other made-in-the-USA genres, with songs about growing up biracial after civil rights (the ’70s-inspired title track) and plenty of hopey-changey stuff (”Stand,” ”Push”). The singer’s a decent politician himself, praising what makes this country great: freedom, optimism, and clubs where ladies do ”boongie drops.” B
