Led Zeppelin #1 is a Lifetime Favorite

by Blu Hawley (CSI) on 2/7/2009

I have personally burned up multiple copies of Led Zep's first LP, 8-Track, Cassette and now CD's. With my new 1994 digitally remastered CD, I find myself floating in some sort of dream space. Songs Like "Babe I'm Gonna Leave You", "Black Mountain Slide", "Dazed and Confused" and "You Shook Me Baby" are good examples of songs that transcend space and time, besides transporting you to a distant galaxy. When you get there you are introduced to the amazing and steaming hot guitar of the emerging guitar icon Mr. Jimmy Page "Communication Breakdown" and "Good Times Bad Times" are my two favorites besides Babe I'm Gonna Leave You ( sentimental reasons). The songs are short, sweet, they sizzle. The opening, the fill, the lead, the solo - wow!!!!! The songs have catchy lyrics, a great chorus, a superstar cast and a hypnotic influence ... What more keys to success does a band need to have? This is the first album and a must have FIVE STARS...... Read More

Rising from the ashes of his old band the Yardbirds, session guitarist Jimmy Page formed Led Zeppelin, one of the most powerful, influential, and enduring British bands to emerge in the '60s. Despite the presence of such classic thrash-o-ramas as "Good Times Bad Times" and "Communication Breakdown," what set Led Zeppelin apart was the depth and range of their music. Their sound was bathed in the blues, from rootsy covers of Willie Dixon's "You Shook Me" and "I Can't Quit You Baby," to the crunching rhythm changes of "Dazed And Confused."
Few guitarists before or since possessed Page's sense of pacing and dynamics, as exemplified by the traditional acoustic folk elements framing the arena gestures on "Babe I'm Gonna Leave You," and the raga-flavored acoustic mystery of "Black Mountain Side." These elements would continue to evolve on subsequent albums, leading to some of Led Zeppelin's greatest moments.
Artist Overview
Led Zeppelin was the definitive heavy metal band. It wasn't just their crushingly loud interpretation of the blues; it was how they incorporated mythology, mysticism, and a variety of other genres into their sound. They had mystique. More than any other band, they established the concept of album-oriented rock, refusing to release popular songs from their albums as singles. Led Zeppelin IV was their biggest album ever, featuring everything from the crunching rock of "Black Dog" to the folk of "The Battle of Evermore," as well as "Stairway to Heaven," the most-played song in the history of album-oriented radio. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (12/11/03, p.106) - Ranked #29 in Rolling Stone's "500 Greatest Albums Of All Time" - "...From the very beginning, Zeppelin had the astonishing fusion of Page's lyrical guitar playing and Robert Plant's paint-peeling love-hound yowl..."
Rolling Stone (9/13/01, p.112) - 5 stars out of 5 - "...No Zep album sounds quite as gratifyingly raw or is as comprehensive in defining the band's intentions..."
Q (10/94, p.141) - 3 Stars - Good - "...the rites of passage, Marquee-style bluesbreaker album, recorded in just 30 hours (no record contract, no cash), it's peak 'Dazed And Confused,' wherein half-inch blues exploded into riffology..."
