5.0 out of 5 stars Why did I wait so long before getting this?, 30 Oct. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Led Zeppelin 1 (Audio CD)
I had Led Zep 2 a full thirty years before getting this one recently. I always had a perception that this would be somehow not the finished article, perhaps a rushed lo-fi recording padded out with cover versions. How wrong could I be? It's brilliant, quite possibly the best of the lot. The band seem to have found their sound straight away (unlike many bands who take several albums to really gel). There's an extra something special happening here, an energy, a chemistry between the musicians, that elevates this above the later albums. For example, closer How Many More Times simply explodes out of the speakers when the full band come in. It's genuinely exciting rock music and it's not hard to see how this album began the process of changing the game for hard rock. It's also got a big, full-blooded sound that no other album I can think of from that era can match. For 1969, this big warm sound is almost miraculous - strange how Page seemed to progressively forget his production skills, as later albums sounded ever thinner and harsher
