4 stars A varied collection of older previously unreleased songs and a number of new songs. It was the first Led Zeppelin album to be released at their new founded "Swan Song" Label (managed by Peter Grant, known as "the man who led zeppelin"). A very good album yet again by this illustrious quartet.

Being a double album, there's enough room for the individuals to make their mark on this album, unfortunatly Plant suffered some throat problems, and on some of the new songs those problems affected his singing, making it a bit more raw and slightly restrained at times. But aside that all members delivered with great mucisianship and skills.

Highlights on this album are the Indian/Eastern influenced Kashmir, the blues metal of In My Time Of Dying, the heavy rock of Sick Again and The Rover, and the fabulous keyboard/drum rock of Trampled underfoot and the great guitars on Ten Years Gone. Not forgetting the acoustic guitar works on Bron-Yr-Aur. and those are just the highlights, not mentioning the good stuff like In The Light, Houses Of the Holy and The Wanton Song.

After a short break during 1974 Led Zeppelin came back with this marvelous album and re- established themselves at the top of the game. Great album, but I would start with IV, or I before embarking on this adventurous album.
