I'm so burned out on the opening two songs, hope I never hear them again. However, I find that "Stairway" is played on the radio far less than its reputation suggests and so it retains some freshness. Side two is such quality, though, that no matter how sick I am of "Black Dog" and "Rock and Roll", I could never give this album a poor rating. My favorite is the underappreciated "Four Sticks".

Four Sticks is the only song that isn't amazing. Pretend you have not had so many of these tracks driven into your mind ad infinitum by classic rock radio.

I never really find myself wanting to listen to Led Zeppelin, but you cannot deny the greatness of their work. This is the best album they made.

I think this, Led Zeppelin, and Houses of the Holy are all better than those two albums.

I have always hated Black Dog. I thoroughly enjoy the rest of the songs on the album. This is a great album, but not as good as LZ II or Physical Graffiti.

From RobertChristgau 05/09/2015 18:22
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."

95/100 = A

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

One of the greatest albums in history, definitely belongs in the top ten.

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.
