4.0 out of 5 stars A Guilty Pleasure?, 8 July 2007
This review is from: Coverdale Page (Audio CD)
I'm not sure why so many people, myself included, consider this album a guilty pleasure. Maybe it's because prior to its release, there were so many Whitesnake/Led Zeppelin (Coverdale/Plant) comparisons over the years, that something like this seems almost taboo. Plus, I recall reading that both Robert Plant and Jimmy Page were very critical of Adrian Vandenburg's liberal "borrowing" of Jimmy Page's violin bow and guitar technique for the "Still of the Night" video. So it was a surprise to see David Coverdale and Jimmy Page get together.

Upon first hearing of this pairing, the assumption was that we'd be treated to Led Zeppelin-Lite, so there defintely reservations about what the final product would sound like. Would David Coverdale try to emulate Robert Plant? Did Jimmy Page still have the guitar chops to make a relevant album?

The answer is yes. And as some other reviewers have stated, this is some of the best material Page has put out since leaving Led Zeppelin. It makes me wish Plant and Page picked up where this album left off when they reunited for the somewhat disappointing "Unledded" album.

Had Coverdale/Page been a Plant, Page, and Jones project, it would have made a much bigger splash on the music scene. Instead, this great album seemed to fly under the radar and fade away. There was a tour of Japan, but to my knowledge, no tour of the States. And that's a shame, because it would have been a treat to see these two in concert.

The stand-out songs for me are "Easy Does It," "Shake My Tree," and "It's Over Now," but I truly enjoy the album as a whole.

If you're a Led Zeppelin fan looking for a fix, don't feel guilty -- pick it up and give it a try.
