Led Zeppelin: Led Zeppelin III

Sound — 8
The third album from Zeppelin showcases some of the group's "mellower" side. Page picks up his acoustic for the majority of the tracks on this album and is accompanied by Jones' mandolin, Plant's lyrics, and Bonham's rhythmic beats. All of these make for a great cd but not one of Zeppelin's best.

Lyrics — 8
Plant's lyrics have vastly improved since their debut album. Along with Page, and on the odd occasion Jones and Bonham, the lyrics on this CD are more deep than say "Whole Lotta Love".

Overall Impression — 8
Overall, this album is great with tracks such as "Immigrant song" and "Out on the Tiles" staying true to the heavy Zeppelin sound and tracks "That's the Way", "Bron-Y-Aur-Stomp", and "Gallow's Pole" showcasing the acoustic talent of the band. Not one of their best, or well-known, CDs, but its still a CD worthwhile of buying.
