Despite being a lifelong Led Zeppelin fan, it took me nearly 2 years to get this album, because I thought the collaboration would be embarrassing and not very good. I was wrong! There are some really BRILLIANT songs on here and I was amazed at how much this album could very nearly be a modern Led Zeppelin. I say very nearly because I was disappointed in a couple of the songs for being too slow and ballad-y and not really going anywhere. However, songs like When The World Was Young, Most High, Burning Up, House of Love and Shining in the Light make up for it. I was also impressed at how good Robert's voice sounds on the album. I would really love to see another collaboration now, it has restored my faith after some of their 80's work.

I got this album around the time it came out and hated it. I don't understand why having gone through it a couple of times since I rebought it. It certainly takes a couple of listens to sink in, but there are many delights within.

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.

This is Page and Plant's first collaboration on new material since the odd couple of tracks from the 'No Quarter' album. I didn't know what to expect when I first bought this- could they still produce the old Zeppelin magic with only those two? Yes and no. At times on this album you can feel them sparking each other off- Most High, Burning Up, Please Read The Letter all sound like they could have come from the 'Physical Graffiti' seesions. However, some of the tracks really do feel like 'fillers', 'Blue Train' and 'When I was a child' in particular. Robert is in fine voice, and his lyrics still contain his trademark elements of heartfelt blues and mysticism. One minor complaint is Jimmy's guitar tone; it sounds a little sterile compared to his sound of the seventies. That said, he is still probably the greatest living exponent of the electric guitar, and can still throw off classic riffs and solos with enviable ease. Overall, a fairly solid rock album that sits well alongside the old Zeppelin albums.

There is a good album in here struggling to get out of the straightjacket imposed on it by Steve Albini, who dampens everything down with a hideous spongy bottom-end production that makes this record sound like it was recorded in a padded cell. I had to look at the credits to realise there was a drummer and bassist present; both sound like they were banished to the studio car park, to keep them out of the sight of the two rock gods whilst they got on with the business of talking about the good old days.

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.

Ever wondered what Led Zeppelin would have sounded like if they hadn'tthrown in the towel after "In Through The Out Door" and sat back to countthe royalties from endless "Best of...." re-issues ? Look no further.There's no "When The Levee Breaks" (unfortunately). Neither is there a"Stairway To Heaven" (Thank you Lord). What you do get is an album withthe laid-back, bluesy feel of "Presence" coupled with the lusherarrangements of "In Through...". No more shrieking and squeaking fromPlant, but come on, he is getting on a bit now. Page,despite his advancingyears, still wallops out some riffs that would be unplayable for lessermortals. It's a shame that John-Paul Jones was as keen to join the projectas he would have been to thrust his hand into a box of angry cobras, butyou can't have everything.High points are "Most High" (did you see theadulation they still command on that otherwise embarrassing TOTPappearance), "Burning Up" (which would not be the worst track if includedon any legitimate Led Zep album you care to name), and "Walking IntoClarksdale", an almost perfect combination of hip-shaking blues and lushguitar.True talent never dies. It only misses out on 5 stars because fullenjoyment of the album is effectively rendered impossible by what isprobably the worst production I have ever encountered this side of thecoloured vinyl 45 of Dr Feelgood's "Milk and Alcohol".A re-masterededition would stand it's ground with the very best.
