5.0 out of 5 stars Stuck In The Middle, 10 July 2006
This review is from: Led Zeppelin III (Audio CD)
Led Zeppelin III is unfortunately stuck in between classics II and IV and is often overlooked by fans because of this.

This in my opinion is actually my favourite Zeppelin album. There's not a single track on it that I dislike, and I can honestly say that it's one of the most well played albums I own.

This once again consists of the usual punchy guitar riffs, vastly underrated bass, steady rhythm and astonishing vocals that Led Zeppelin became famous for. Of course, this album is the home of the band's classic Immigrant Song, and what could be a better album opener than this track?! It doesn't happen. This song has to be one of the greatest album openers of all time. It's most definitely up there in my top 5! The other tracks are just pure beauty and talented craftsmanship. And that's what Led Zeppelin is; a finely tuned art.

The tracks that should definitely be checked out and played at their loudest are Immigrant Song, Since I've Been Loving You (seriously underrated!!!!), and Out On The Tiles. But what is fantastic about III is the great contrasts between these heaviers and more bluesy songs, to the quieter and folky tracks like Tangerine for example. This song shouldn't be overlooked because of how quiet it is; it's incredibly beautiful and is soft Zeppelin at it's best.

As I've already said, John Paul-Jones' bass on this album is mind blowing. He's an incredibly underrated bassist, and I'd just like to salute him for his work on this album. Wonderful.
