LED ZEPPELIN In Through The Out Door

Album · 1979 · Hard Rock

Just like Presence, I find this album more annoying than anything... without much of the hard rock songs that I love from them, let alone the epic ones. But unlike Presence, this one doesn't have a song as great as "Achilles Last Stand" to save it. I don't give it one star because there is "In the Evening", which is good, as well as "All my Love", but still they are not at the same level of their greatest songs from previous albums. It's a shame that this would be the last album they would record before the end of their career.

Except for the opening and closing tracks, this album does just about nothing for me, except annoy me. There's not much hard rock, or even just memorable rock on the in between tracks, only annoying songs that try to be groovy or something, which are just the kind of songs I never liked on previous albums. I go for three stars just because of Achilles Last Stand, the best song on this album, and one of my very favourite Zep tracks, being long and heavy and one of their proggiest songs, and Tea for One is a very nice long blues track that should not be forgotten either.

LED ZEPPELIN Physical Graffiti

Album · 1975 · Hard Rock

This one seems to be among the best loved Zeppelin albums by fans, as well as a favorite among double albums. Yet, I don't really hear what's so great about it... besides Kashmir, of course. And then, perhaps it's Kashmir in great part the one that makes it sound bad, since the rest of the album sounds nothing like it, so much that it actually sounds out of place within the album... or else, perhaps the order of the songs within the album were not well chosen. I think Kashmir would have sounded much better at the end of disc two, which has many songs that go better with it, and which I particularly like better, and take the last two songs from that disc for disc one, giving the whole album a much stronger end, and making both discs sound much more coherent within them.

LED ZEPPELIN Houses Of The Holy

Album · 1973 · Hard Rock

After the great fourth album, this one is indeed a disappointment. I find most of the songs rather annoying and in a totally different style... but not in a good way. They went with some sort of caribbean, almost danceable sound or something, instead of their hard rock / blues sound that we had gotten used to. I would be tempted to give it 2 stars if it were not for the two great songs that it does have, the soft and beautiful "The Rain Song" and the proggy "No Quarter", which is among my very favourite songs from the band.

LED ZEPPELIN Led Zeppelin IV

Album · 1971 · Hard Rock

Now, after a powerful debut and reaching a greater album with the third one, here come THE masterpiece from Zep. Really one of the best and most loved albums on rock, with one of the best songs ever (Stairway to Heaven, of course). If I could consider the Black Sabbath debut to be for hard rock what In the Court of the Crimson King is for prog, then this album would be to hard rock what Close to the Edge is for prog. Every song is wonderful and powerful and they are all different and have their own identity, not repeating themselves anywhere. Really an album fit for one of the greatest rock bands ever.

    Oh, I just found out, it seems this is a multiple vote poll... I think I just voted twice for Dream Theater (I thought I hadn't voted yet, since the page didn't tell me I had already voted, but when I voted again it still gives me the option to vote), however, this means the result for this poll isn't really reliable.

    Dream Theater easily.  They are actually my favourite metal band, while I don't like growls, so that leaves a lot of material from Opeth out of my liking... and very often when Opeth doesn't use growling, they completly forsake metal.

    Well, actually I have only just started getting some music from them, and I'm not really sure I'll be getting much more.  They have some nice songs, but they can get somewhat annoying at times.  Hallowed be thy Name became my favourite song from them before I even knew any songs from them (thanks to Dream Theater's cover from Number of the Beast).  And my curiosity became greater since I have known of many metal bands I like doing covers from them.  However, the only albums I have got from them are, first, Maiden England, which had some nice songs (specially from Seventh Son), but many other rather annoying ones, and then Live after Death, which has some other nice songs, and not so many annoying ones (plus, now it seems clear to me that on Maiden England something seems to have been wrong with Dikinson's voice, since it's much better on Live after Death).
