Top Customer Reviews
Plants singing is more measured and all the better for it on this album. He is still powerful, but not going for notes that start to distress cats and bats. The lyrics are much better than the latter day Zep stuff, by miles.
Pages playing is really interesting throughout. He is still using the mutated guitar sounds that he was getting into on Zeps last outing, or, if you got the chance to hear it, the soundtrack to Death Wish II. This guitar sound works really well, I reckon, and helps fill out to whole sonic weave, so to speak.
The rest of the band are 100% up for it. Michael Lees drumming is superb. It is a real pity that he died so young. Charlie Jones is right in there along with Lee building up a first class rhythm section.
I saw them on this tour and thought that they were playing even better than the Unledded tour, so who knows where they might have gone if they had made another album.
So, well worth getting, but don't expect the same sort of instant adrenaline fuelled thrills of the Zep variety.
The mighty Most High transcends most of the rest of this material; but Blue Train and When We Were Young are also fine songs. However there are also a couple of duds: House Of Love and the ultimate throwaway Burning Up.
Somebody at Mercury, or whatever label it's called nowadays, bring out a remaster of this quick.

Really good album I prefer it to No Quarter because they're not harking back to the Zep. The songs grow stronger the more you listen to it, very understated. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Rupert Chadwick
