Post by George Bailey »

I have always been a big fan of Led Zeppelin and i've always loved a huge amount of their songs, but it wasn't until recently that I started to listen to their discography and i've "discovered" many gems I hadn't heard before. And I realized that once you start listening to them, it's hard to stop! I love pretty much all they make, whether it's the heavy and loud stuff or the slow and acoustic stuff. I gotta say that Black Dog is my favorite song by them and my least favorite is Carouselambra. My favorite albums from worst to best:

9. Coda - 7/10
Best - Wearing and Tearing
Worst - We're Gonna Groove

8. In Through the Out Door - 7.5/10
Best - Hot Dog (I quite love it)
Worst - Carouselambra

7. Presence - 7.5/10
Best - Nobody's Fault But Mine
Worst - Hots On For Nowhere

6. House of the Holy - 8/10
Best - D'yer Mak'er
Worst - The Grunge

5. Physical Graffiti - 9/10
Best - Houses of the Holy
Worst - Trampled Under Foot

4. Led Zeppelin 9/10
Best - Good Times, Bad Times
Worst - Dazed and Confused

3. Led Zeppelin II - 9/10
Best - What Is and What Should Never Be
Worst - Moby Dick

2. Led Zeppelin III - 9.5/10
Best - Bron Y-Aur-Stomp
Worst - Since I've Been Loving You

1. Led Zeppelin IV - 10/10 (Might be the only album where almost all the songs are one of my all time favorites)
Best - Black Dog
Worst - Four Sticks

They're all Led Zeppelin, so they're all just great. No-one messes with Led Zeppelin. -_-

On a more serious note, I think I'm most fond of LZ III. Didn't rank all their albums, though.

The only Led Zeppelin song I like is What Is and What Should Never Be, but only the version from The BBC Sessions. Stairway to Heaven and Whole Lotta Love are ok.

My son was really into LZ in middle school, when he was learning the electric guitar. I'm not a connoisseur of the genre, but I found LZ more musically literate then most.

I can't believe I missed this thread all these years. My mom was at the very first Led Zeppelin concert. Or rather, she was a the very first concert the New Yardbirds gave, they didn't become Led Zeppelin until a little later. But the first ever show of Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones and John Bonham playing together on stage was in Copenhagen, 7 September 1968.

I of course didn't become aware of them until long after they were dissolved. The closest thing I've gotten was front row of Page & Plant touring in 1995. I could smell the incense they had burning on the stage. Robert Plant did sing "There's A Lady Who's Sure... Hahaha!" before breaking into a different song, but that was all we got.

I've got a whole lotta love for those guys. Zep IV is a perfect album from start to finish. That's like the apex of classic rock to me, along with Some Girls by the Stones.

Get the Led out!

I got the Led Zeppelin bug when I was about 14 and kept blasting it through high school and college. I don't listen to them on the regular now, but whenever I do, I'm reminded of how great they were. Every so often, I become newly obsessed with a song that I might have liked but not paid much attention to when I was younger. Most recently, it was:


Before that, it was:
