More even than "Rock and Roll," which led me into the rest of the record (whose real title, as all adepts know, is signified by runes no keyboard can reproduce) months after I'd stupidly dismissed it, or "Stairway to Heaven," the platinum-plated album cut, I think the triumph here is "When the Levee Breaks." As if by sorcery, the quasi-parodic overstatement and oddly cerebral mood of Led Zep's blues recastings is at once transcended (that is, this really sounds like a blues), and apotheosized (that is, it has the grandeur of a symphonic crescendo) while John Bonham, as ham-handed as ever, pounds out a contrapuntal tattoo of heavy rhythm. As always, the band's medievalisms have their limits, but this is the definitive Led Zeppelin and hence heavy metal album. It proves that both are--or can be--very much a part of "Rock and Roll."

This is their masterpiece even if I like Led Zep I better.

In my opinion the best hard rock album of all time.
Led Zeppelin became the origin of everything that sounded, felt, or tasted vaguely metallic, and the raw power that they brought to the public on their debut, just two years earlier was indeed genre defining. This was an even stronger effort.

The strength of the music is crushing, and the interplay between especially Bonham and Paul-Jones is unmatched here through in their career. Page delivers his best riffs, and Plant's vocals are as sharp as a samurai sword.

In short, one of the most important efforts in music history.

Led Zeppelin's Greatest album and one of the greatest Rock albums of all time. This album demonstrates all of the facets of Led zeppelin better than any of their other animals. From the Heavy Rock signature LZ sound demonstrated in Black Dog, to a faster paced early rock inspired "Rock and Roll", to the folk beauty of " Going to California", to the instrumentally driven blues rock of "When the Levee Breaks" which perfectly closes this LP. LZ IV defined rock for the next 15years with acts like Guns n Roses and ACDC clearly taking inspiration from a lot of this album. Lastly, this album brought Stairway to Heaven to the world, which truly encapsulated Led Zeppelin's range in one song and is one of the greatest songs of all time. Led Zeppelin IV gives greater range and does more with it's genre in 8 songs than most albums do in almost double that track number.
Best songs: Stairway to Heaven, When the Levee Breaks, Rock and Roll

Obviously an all time great. Not much more can be said, other than for me it is Zeppelin's 2nd best album of all time (I'm a sucker for double lps).

Favorite Tracks - When the Levee Breaks, Black Dog, Stairway to Heaven, Misty Mountain Hop

Maybe the first three albums are even more brilliant. And still LZ IV is a masterpiece.

Not that it matters, but I would rank it my 4th favorite Led Zeppelin Album.

Love how it starts off like you’d expect, hard rockin’, with “Black Dog” and “Rock n’ Roll” before shifting into a softer folk-rock atmosphere. Oh my god, suddenly I’m in the land of Tolkien!

Great finish with “When the Levee Breaks”, the cherry on top of the cake!

This album is the epitome of rock. Led Zeppelin take their roots in blues and folk while trailblazing heavy metal to create a conglomeration of eight anthems that are 100% rock. The sheer number of iconic tracks on this album is almost unparalleled. Classic.

Key tracks: Stairway to Heaven, When the Levee Breaks, Battle of Evermore
