Customer Review

on 22 May 2005
After viewing the Sensation amazing live performance on Later with Jools Holland, I had to buy this album. It exceeded at expectations - my favourite album thus far in a year that has seen Arcade Fire, the Mars Volta, Bright Eyes, Van Der Graaf Generator and others produce stunning works.
The album strikes a balance between harder-than-Zeppelin rock, Plant's passion for Eastern music, folk and the blues. Not one song on the album is filler, and Plant's vocals are as great as ever. The Strange Sensation, while obviously not Zeppelin, are still fantastic, with some very Page-like guitar work and some excellent riffs ("Freedom Fries," "Takamba"), combined with a skillful rhythem section and some tasteful and atomospheric keyboards, best sampled during the final minute of "The Enchanter." Plant has wrote some of his greatest lyrics, much more tender than in the 70s.
An excellent album, harking back to the golden days of Zeppelin. It's hard to imagine Page's and Jones' forthcoming albums living up to this one. Think of it as Physical Graffiti Disc 3.
