This is a great album! Early stuff like "Whole Lotta Love", "Communication Breakdown", "Black Dog", and of course "Stairway To Heaven" are classics. They are great hard rock songs with a touch of blues thrown on on some songs. "Immigrant Song" is a legendary Led Zeppelin song. It is only two and a half minutes long (short by Zep's standards) but is incredibly catchy. "When The Leevee Breaks" has awesome drumming. On Latter Days, things slow down, but not very much. "Houses of the Holy" and "Trampled Underfoot" show the groups funkier side. "Achilles Last Stand" is probably the best late Led Zeppelin song. It is ten minutes long but has a great amount of energy put into it. I still think it could've ended about a minute or two earlier, but who cares anyway? "Kashmir" is a very experimental song. It sounds very Arabian. This is probably one of my favorite Led Zeppelin songs. The band's sound differs from song to song. This album is great.
Lyrics — 10
The lyrics are good. Some, like "Whole Lotta Love", are pretty blatant and uncreative. "Stairway To Heaven" is greatly written. It is probably one of the best-written Zep songs ever. Robert Plant's voice goes great with the music. Still, I give it a five out of five.
Overall Impression — 10
The best songs are "Communication Breakdown", "Whole Lotta Love", "When The Levee Breaks", "Immigrant Song", "Stairway To Heaven", "Houses Of The Holy", "Kashmir", and "Achilles Last Stand". Led Zeppelin was a great band, and this album shows them at their best. If it were stolen, I'd buy it again.
