5.0 out of 5 stars Criminally Underrated, 9 Aug. 2008

This review is from: Now And Zen (Audio CD)
As an interpretation of the 80's musical asthetic this album is a powerhouse. The sounds are clean and crisp (to excess obviously - this was 80's production), however too many people listening to the album, post it's release into an understanding musical landscape, completely miss this point and concept. If you can't look beyond production values alone then you shouldn't critique music, if this was the only basis for music's worth then many a classic song or album would be dismissed. The break up of standard song structure and use of emerging sounds is a highlight, giving the album depth and delvering more each listen. The lyrics reflect the time and an inability to relate is certainly not the artists responsibility. This album is a highlight in Plant's solo career and certainly carries no more 'dead weight' than Fate of Nations. Do yourself a favour and listen to this album in it's entirety on an audiophile quality system and revel in the creativeness of the soundscape and Plant's intoxicating wail - it never sounded better.
