Led Zeppelin's fourth album is one of the most important and influential rock records ever, and one of the band's best. It features at least five Zeppelin classics, including off course, the timeless, stairway to heaven, which despite all it's prog rock intentions, is quite rightly regarded as a rock masterpiece. Other standouts are the brilliant opener, black dog, another great rock track, and that's followed by the breathless, rock and roll. Battle of evermore, is a lovely acoustic number with Fairport Convention's Sandy Denny sharing vocal duties with Robert Plant. Another excellent cut is the anti-authority, misty mountain hop, and, going to California, is another acoustic cut after which the album ends with the thunderous, when the levee breaks. The only weak track is the nonsense of four sticks, but hey, seven out of eight ain't bad. Excellent, Zeppelin at their ambitious best.

Black Dog it's a 5 star. But I can't get Stairway to heaven, for god's sake

Led Zeppelin were capable of playing a fundamental role in the history of blues rock, hard rock and heavy metal, essentially without giving birth to any new kind of music. What they were playing was nothing more than hard-oriented blues rock, mixed with atmospheres coming from celtic traditions, but what made them important was their ability to write wonderful, iconic songs. This album in particular is the proof that rock history hasn't always been (and shouldn't be intended as) a path of constant innovation and experimentation: there were times when it was much better to look at the past and simply celebrate music with a magnificent work of art.

Flawless album in my view, yes, including Four Sticks and Misty Mountain Hop. Some consider Stairway To Heaven to be on of if not the most overplayed song ever, but it's so amazing that I could listen to it a thousand more times. My favorite track on LZ4 is not Stairway or even Levee, but rather Going to California. On an album full of a loud and rocking songs, the sweet acoustic ballad is the one that really blew me away the most. Every song on here is a must-listen, 10/10.

The strange thing with this record and led zeppelin in general is that the outcome is never greater than the sum of its parts. don't get me wrong i like the band and their albums a lot but to me they never reached their full potential. every band member is among the very best of their respective craft und no band ever had as much talent es they did. nevertheless no led zeppelin album reached the heights bands like the beatles reached. maybe this is just my personal opinion but no album of theirs brings all their talents together into a singular piece of art. led zeppelin IV comes closest while also featuring some of their best songs wich is ultimately the art form they where the best at

It has some of my favourite songs by Led Zeppelin such as Rock n Roll and Stairway To Heaven but it has some weak points as well. Songs such as Four Sticks and Misty Mountain Hop doesn't really measure up, I'ts no that they're bad songs, it's just that they're not nearly as good as the rest of the songs on the album. If those two songs would have been as good as the rest this would probably be one of my favourite albums of all time. But it's still a great album and also the first Zeppelin album i ever listened to so it has a special place in my heart.

I have owned "Mothership" for a number of years and tried listening to it a few times, but never got into it.

So I bought the Led Zep "1" album in early february 2016 due to the position on the overall chart and the amazing reviews of this and that of the other Zeppelin albums

I loved the first album, so i carried on and bought No.2 , loved that even more (i think). So i bought No.3 after a lot of listens also loved that one.


So bought No.4and I absolutely love it as well.
This one has the obvious well known "stairway" on it , but overall every song is amazing. The ending with " when the levee breaks"is just subline

Ive gone on to buy up to the fifth (houseofholy) already because of the 1st four albums (end of feb 2016) and i havent been dissapointed .... Yet

This album has sent my new found love of the Zep in to orbit

If like me you hadnt tried the zeppelin - start with this number 1 and work your way through them - you wont regret it :)
