  • If you think of Led Zeppelin as heavy metal band, then you’ve only heard Whole Lotta Love and Black Dog. On this album, as with each of their albums, they went far, far outside the realm of whatever heavy metal encompasses.From the majestic opening of The Song Remains The Same to the ’50’s doo-wop fade-out of The Ocean, this is possibly Led Zep’s most consistent album. With one-man orchestra John Paul Jones prominent on The Rain Song and No Quarter, Jimmy Page in brillant acoustic form on Over The Hills And Far Away and pulling out a killer riff in Dancing Days, John Bonham dominating The Crunge and D’yer Mak’er (pronounced Jamaica, for those who don’t know), and Robert Plant superb throughout, each member of the band is at their peak, at a time before the excesses of subsequent tours began to take their toll.The perfect album to listen to pool-side on a sunny day. Just crank it up and enjoy the magic.
