All his technical ability aside, Kravitz lingers a little too long in a comfortable late-night lounge, swaggering around a framework of riff-rock, reconstituted funk and dirty soul.
In short, Strut offers no significant U-turns (unlike previous album Black and White America) nor does it stumble.
Kravitz might scream loudly from time to time, but in doing so he runs a risk of which few men might be accused: that is, faking it.
