5.0 out of 5 stars my current favourite Zep album..., 1 Nov. 2003
This review is from: Houses of the Holy (Audio CD)
This is an album on which all 8 tracks give me tingles, that fabulous feeling that you get when you love a song so much that you almost want to cry and dance and sing all at the same time.
It kicks off with a truly great rock song, 'The Song Remains the Same'. Having recently watched the video of 'TSRTS' for the first time, I'm even more in love with this song than ever. It then runs seamlessly into 'The Rain Song', which is really beautiful, classic acoustic 'gentle' Zep. I love 'Over the Hills and Far Away' for the heartfelt vocals of the chorus. 'The Crunge' I just love. It's bizarre but great (and also sounds like a James Brown song at the end...). My favourite track is probably 'Dancing Days' for its rhythm and riff. 'D'yer Mak'er' (or however you spell it) is a strange contrast of stereotypical romantic song lyrics and a reggae sort of rhythm which is weird but interesting and also gives it individualism. 'No Quarter' is an eerie, Lord of the Rings-ish track; hard to explain but if you listen to it you'll see what I mean! And then there is 'The Ocean', probably the one I neglect unfairly because it seems like a bit of an anticlimax after 'No Quarter', but it's a more typical Led Zeppelin rock track (not that that's a bad thing at all!)
Led Zeppelin are one of my all-time favourite bands. I know everyone loves them for different reasons, but for me their eclectic sound and brilliant musical talent is what makes them so excellent (and they also write damn good songs!). This album is definitely worth getting even if you're not a huge Zep fan because the songs are all so different but so great. So yeah. Buy it!
