It's their first album and they were young, energetic and loud. But somehow immature.
When they deliver raw power (Good Times, Communication Breakdown), with Bonham and Plant killing it, it's a true powerhouse. But when they try something else it feels a little bit lost, with Page shreddin poorly just for the sake of it.
Gladly, they improved throughout the carreer and become what they are to all of us.

A stunning debut album encompassing heavy metal, rock, blues and almost progressive elements, the latter, particularly in ' Dazed and Confused' and 'Black Mountain Side'. Superb!

So this is where it all began...And to think the critics hated this when it first came out. What in the hell were they thinking?! A true classic!

Riffs brilhantes no lamaçal blues-rock neste álbum de estreia já com tanta identidade! Sensacional.

Awesome debut, despite the complaints about plagiarism. Although sometimes the sameness and sound quality wear on my, there's no denying this album trumpeted the arrival of the messiah of hard rock bands.

Led Zeppelin along with Pink Floyd and The Red Hot Chili Peppers Got Me into playing guitar. Led Zeppelin I is an interesting one, from the first two notes it demonstrates everything zeppelin is and will be. Good Times Bad Times Is The perfect first Zeppelin Song, John Bonham with one foot pedal sounds like 4 drummers. John Paul Jones with writing the main riff showed his prowess as a riff writer (Along with Jimmy Page) Jimmy Pages searing solos blowed many minds (Like my own), Robert Plants sense of melody and his voice near the ending fadeout. the album then goes into an acoustic Number named "Babe I'm Gonna Leave You" I love this song. the acoustic guitar and singing is beautiful. and when the bass and drums come in, it elevates it to a whole other level. "You Shook Me (The First Credited cover on this album) follows with some of the coolest solos on the album. first John Paul Jones shows his keyboard skill in the first zeppelin song with keyboards, Plant demonstrates his prowess on Harmonica. and Page of course delivers a Guitar solo. Dazed And Confused starts with one of John Paul Jones best bass lines. everything in this song is fantastic, before culminating into a psychadelic Page section, and then bursting into Page's best solo on the album. I especially love the drums in Dazed and confused. Your time is gonna come is a catchy keyboard song. black mountain side is good but is elevated if you listen to it and communication breakdown back to back. How many more times is great but much better on the coda album. the flaws with this album is how much stuff jimmy page ripped off from other artists, Babe I'm Gonna Leave, Dazed and confused, and black mountain side are particularly jarring. which really takes off from this albums score and legacy.

I love this album for it's rawness, from is brilliance to it's flaws. It's one of those albums that captures the magic of the session. A debut that just kept sucker punching you song after song, then continued into the next album.

@JImagineL

Idk why you're comparing Zeppelin to Cream, because other than the fact that they were both groups made up of some of the finest instrumentalists of their time, their styles couldn't be more different. Cream was a blues fueled psychedelia group that set the basis for what Rock 'n' Roll instrumentation in its fullest could be. Cream spent their whole career trying to outdo each other, Led Zeppelin knew how to work with each other to make their music amazing. While Cream's music was amazing, they never could have been Led Zeppelin because they had never even imagined that Zeppelin's sound has existed, and they simply didn't know each other well enough to bring that sound into fruition.
