Bought the Led Zeppelin I album yesterday, I have to say on first impressions its pretty poor, the only decent song so far is Going To Calafornia.   Stairway To Heaven has great lyrics but the way its sung just doesn't appeal to me (prob moreover Plants voice on a whole I don't like much) but I will listen to it as much as I can to see if it grows on me.   

Huh? Do you mean Led Zeppelin IV? Because Stairway to heaven isnt on the first one, neither is Going to california.

Just says Led Zeppelin on the side, there a picture of an old man carrying straw on his back.

So thats Led Zeppelin IV 8)


Thanks for explaining the true facts Slash Revolver   :D

Led Zeppelin Awarded Prestigious Polar Music Prize

The winners of the Polar Music Prize Award, for 2006 were unveiled today at The Royal Swedish Academy of Music in Stockholm. "The 2006 Polar Music Prize is awarded to the British group Led Zeppelin, one of the great pioneers of rock. Their playful and experimental music combined with highly eclectic elements has two essential themes: mysticism and primal energy. These are features that have come to define the genre 'hard rock'". The prize winners will receive the prize from His Majesty King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden at a gala ceremony at the Stockholm Concert Hall to be followed by a celebratory banquet at Grand Hôtel on Monday May 22, 2006. "It's a great honor and privilege", says John Paul Jones

Holy crap! :shock:   So the album Spikeout bought is the mighty Led Zeppelin - IV, man, I had a full listen of the album and thought it was bollocks, at least on first impressions.   Some cool parts from Page on guitar, but Plant on vocals is awful, at least in my opinion, got one of those voices that I personally cannot stand.   I'll have to listen again, seeing as this is the supposed best rock album of all time in the view of many.   I failed to hear anything on there that was even close to backing up such praise...

Its a very good solo I think but there are a good few I reckon are better, GNR - Nightrain, Bon Jovi - Dry County and Eric Clapton - Just Like A Prisoner, check them out if you haven't already 8)

My favourite Led Zep song would hav to be "Achilles last stand" such an amazing song. The solo is also my equal favourite with "Nightrain". They were/are all so talented, the perfect combination.

First song I heard was probably the immigrant song. I've been listening to a lot of their softer/mellow songs a lot lately, I can't get enough of Ramble On, Tangerine, All my Love...
