I do not care for Led Zeppelin. Their style is a bit too bombastic for my tastes. Robert Plant's singing style is more annoying than pleasant. But in spite of Plant's scratchy screeching there some fresh arrangements on this disc that makes it stand out just a little. No Quarter is without a doubt the most creative piece Led Zeppelin ever recorded. What a great haunting mood with a killer riff from Jimmy, moody Organ effects by JPJ, and awesome drumming from Bonzo. Even Plant's singing is very appropriate for the tone. Dancing Days offers a different mix that works well with the keyboards and guitars mixing well. The Rain Song, although a little bit long, is a nice ballad. Some funky rhythms(Crunge) and Reggae(Dyer Maker) are nice too. Take away Plant's screetches from track to track and I would consider giving this a higher rating. However, if I had to purchase a Led Zeppelin CD this would come in first with #2 a close second. However, this is not a classic recording and nothing by Led Zeppelin should ever be.
