Guest review by
Led Zeppelin are one of the most influential, and popular bands of all time. Even today they continue to influence up-and-coming artists. The band always focused on making all sorts of different types of music, whether it be heavy or soft. They could be playing one of the softest, most beautiful songs you have ever heard, then turn it around and go all out using distorted guitars and hammering drums that could make parents and neighbors complain. The musicianship was always key in Zeppelin's music - some even say that they wore their influences on their sleeves. However, all bands and musicians have to start somewhere, and they have to have someone to look up to, right? What they often did on their early albums like Led Zeppelin "I" and "II" was take blues and folk music and blow it up into something more heavy, and more exciting. In a way this is how they paid tribute to their influences.

Hard to define this one, is it HM. no it is not , well at those days genre HM was not existing as it is now, yes its hue influence, even band denies they played HM... musically its super huge blues influenced album and acoustic folk...and those covers, modern growlers and stage divers never ever have heard those, to understand Led Zep, you should understand that time, but can you, can you destroy your mobile, iphod and other modern technology?
Great great album
Life is to short for LOVE, there is many great things to do online !!!

Wow, no comments since 2014? Time to change that! Led Zeppelin's 3rd best after IV (9.6/10) and Physical Graffiti Disc 1 (9.5/10) IMO.

9.1/10 for me - 'Good Times Bad Times', 'Dazed And Confused' and 'Communication Breakdown' are the standout songs. 'Babe I'm Gonna Leave You', 'Your Time Is Gonna Come' and 'How Many More Times' are all also great.
