Led Zeppelin: Physical Graffiti
2

Sound — 9
This may be one of Led Zeppelin's best albums yet. There are many memorable songs thanks to the many different styles used on this epic album. From the arabic style of Kashmir to the hard rock that we have come to know and love in the song Custard Pie, one of my personal favorites. Overall, the sound on this album is great, but then again this is Led Zeppelin we are talking about here.

Lyrics — 9
The lyrics for Led Zeppelin songs have had this captivating essence to them that keeps you listening for more, and Physical Graffiti is no exception. Another thing that I liked about this album is that the words seem to really go with the music, like in the song Ten Years Gone, which is a more mellow song, and the guitar follows suit, but just as the lyrics pick up in theme and pace, the guitar yet again keeps up. Songs like Ten Years Gone and Night Flight make the lyrics and music on this album flow as one and really make this album a memorable one.

Overall Impression — 10
After listening to Physical Graffiti I was pretty stunned. My favorite songs on this album would have to be Ten Years Gone and Custard Pie, however there are a few that I don't really care for. Like "Boogie With Stue" and Black Country Woman. Overall this album is definitely worth buying, just like all of Led Zeppelins material. Hope that this review helped you, and enjoy Physical Graffiti!

    I can't agree more. If you are a true Zeppelin fan you will appreciate every song. There seriously isn't one Led Zeppelin song I dislike, I've heard em all don't worry
