Talk about copying other riffs. Still good but a little too heavy for my liking.
Great debut album. Began changing the landscape of music from this point on.
Best Track: Dazed and Confused
Led Zep's Led Zeppelin. A great start for the world's best band. Too bad it was entirely a blues album. Led Zeppelin probably didn't know they were great with pretty much any genre back then.
A debut heavy
Sure, a lot of the stuff on here isn't original, but it's the way they played these songs that makes this my favorite Led Zeppelin album. It has the blues that I love with the hard rocking that I grew up on. How Many More Times has one of my favorite riffs/bass lines ever. I can listen to this album through everyday.
This is the only Led Zeppelin album I like. As somebody said previously, it really does explode out of the speakers. The bands debut emerged at the time of Woodstock just as the hippie ideal was beginning to wane. Certainly, there are traces of Eastern mysticism in the albums instrumental track and the softer blues passages also nod in the direction of the hippy generation - the connection to which is real, if tenuous.
That aside, the band homed in on the fashion for pyrotechnic guitar virtuosity and heavy riffs. In this regard they upped the anti by extending the aesthetics of Hendrix whilst simultaneously popularizing the album format without saturating the popular medium of FM radio in the process.
They were one of the first bands to successfully fuse a heavy supersonic brand of rock with the traditional blues standards of legends like Howlin' Wolf. But there is also a softer psychedelic undercurrent that keeps the music relatively interesting.
It's the combination of these various elements that distinguishes their debut from their subsequent albums. By the time of their second they had settled on a format that negated the softer side, which in my view, worked to the detrimement of their subsequent output.
Led Zeppelin's first album is their best.
It's not as creative or thunderous as their subsequent albums, but it's still fantastic. This is Zeppelin closest to their roots. It's bluesy swagger jumps out the speakers. Dynamite.
Led Zeppelin's first album is without question a milestone in rock music history. On one hand the album is a natural extension of the Yardbirds, the group as we know, Led Zeppelin was an offshoot of, and on the other hand the group gives the blues new life with unprecedented approaches and sounds .
Not least, Robert Plant's deeply original vocals are remarkable, but of course also Jimmy Pages guitar playing which is both sublime and orginal. One could easily nominate this album as rock history's first blues-inspired heavy metal album.
Half of the album is basically classic blues in a new interpretation. This goes for songs like "You Shook Me," "Dazed and Confused," "I Can not Quit You Baby" and partly "Babe, I'm Gonna Leave You".
More modern and melodic are "Good Times, Bad Times" - a fantastic opening track - and "Your Time is Gonna Come", which shows that the group from the beginning found inspiration in the more acoustic folk music, too. The instrumental track "Black Mountain Side" is another example of this.
"Communication Breakdown" in turn could easily be called music history's first punk number.
The final track "How Many More Times" is a blues-rock number; a bit like Ten Years After liked to play that style. Actually it is the only number that may seem a bit dated.
The sound of when something was meant to be. Here, blues and rock collide. And the results are awesome.
