Nada que envidiar a los dos primeros álbumes de Led Zeppelin. Es maravillosa esa energía con la que arranca el álbum y cómo va poco a poco siendo más suave y más melódica. Como si escaparas de la ciudad para llegar al campo. También hay que destacar la gran protagonista del álbum, Since I've Been Loving You y no nos olvidemos del momento Friends - Celebration Day o la armonía de Tangerine - That's the Way. Un álbum mucho menos pesado, pero que demuestra la versatilidad de los integrantes de la banda. El paso perfecto para alcancer la plena madurez.
@pteronophobic Yes! God, I love "That's the Way." It has such a wistful beauty to it. Certainly one of my very top Zeppelin tracks. For me the run from "Since I've Been Loving You" through "That's the Way" on this album is the best stretch of songs on any Zeppelin record.
This is my favorite Zeppelin album along with Physical Graffiti. It really shows their eclecticism and songwriting abilities. Plant's lyrics really matured with this album, Page really shows what a versatile guitarist he is. Also, That's the Way is my favorite song of all time
LZ III is a great album with so many different aspects to it. First band to experiment with 'drone'. For example, "Friends" is the penultimate, droned-out mind-blast, that explores the profound depths of a despondent, and lonely soul.
Not sure why so many fans think this is their worst. It's my favorite by them. Great use of blues/folk influences and a lot of acoustic instrumentation. "Since I've Been Loving You" is an amazing blues number, also. Probably a top 10 Zeppelin track for me, maybe even top 5.
My 2nd fave after Houses of the Holy.
Much better structured as a whole but HOTH has some of the best songs in the whole catalog like No Quarter and Over the hills and far away.
So HOTH wins because of having much higher high points.
But don't count out this one it's quite good too.
Led Zeppelin has recorded some of the most memorable rock songs in the modern popular music canon, but I'd like to think "That's the Way", "Bron-Y-Aur Stomp", "Gallows Pole", and "Tangerine" are some of the most moving songs ever put on wax. And that's to say nothing of the straight-up rockers on this perfect album.
"worst album cover ever"??????? wtf? Dude, it's one of the best, especially in the vinyl album format (with the working spin wheel). I guess some people just don't care for the "clip art" collage concept. :\
