Customer Review

on 10 May 2007
I think it's fair to assert that an artist must be relatively confident in their own abilities when they decide to attempt a double-album. Albums of such a prolonged nature commonly lose their grasp upon the listener after a certain period of time, even if the standard of music is immaculate. I don't think I've ever heard a truly gripping double-album. Except this!! `Physical Graffiti' is arguably what separates Led Zeppelin from practically every other rock band in history. Their ability to consistently churn out pioneering, varied and tantalisingly diverse tracks is astounding.

`Physical Graffiti' boasts a ridiculous amount of masterfully fashioned music. From huge, audacious trailblazing riffs, to soaring, evocative blues solos, to those secreted sounds which only become fully apparent after a particularly intensive listening bout.

The album is literally an endless chain of classic songs, and Led Zeppelin certainly aren't circumscribed by pre-conceived genre boundaries. The tracks here range from the startling, blues suite, `In My Time Of Dying', which showcases the band at their jaw-dropping collective music peak, to the timeless `Down By The Seaside', with its infectious chorus sung in a characteristically flawless manner by the effervescent Robert Plant. The unmistakable riff that propels `Kashmir' displays the delightfully innovatory approach of guitarist, Jimmy Page; here he alters his guitar's tuning to extract novel, almost mystical tones.

I could joyfully write hundreds of words passionately and verbosely eulogising over each track, however I think you get the picture. This is the greatest double-album ever conceived, and a staple rock album that no home should be without! Enjoy!
