For me, this album was a step down from their great debut. Yes, it's got a fan favourite in the riff heavy hard rocker Whole Lotta Love, and Thank You is a very beautiful ballad. Moby Dick may come close too, with a very catchy riff too, but being mostly the vehicle for a drumm solo, as great as Bonham may be, well, there's a reason in concert release reviews they are often refered to as the "dreaded drum solo". But even these ones are not among my very favourite songs, and besides them I don't find much to compete with their greatest songs. Yet, there is nothing bad at all, they are all good and well written songs, only they are not stellar as I would expect from such a band.
