3 stars This first album is, IMO, just the start of a great band, one of the best bands in the Rock world. So, as a first album, IMO stil shows a band in development, with a lot of influences taken from Blues music. But it is still good, but I like some of their other albums more than this first album. Still, this album shows the talent of each musician in the band. I think that this album, more than their others, was led more by Page and Jones, as Plant was still an "unknown"singer, and Bonham, while still shinning as a great drummer (I could call him the Best Drummer in Rock, really ) sounds somewhat "shy" in some moments in comparison to other albums. I think that this album was recorded in a shorter time than their other albums, so the band still sounds with more raw things which were polished in later albums. I think that Page and Jones, with more experience as recording musicians, have the merit to record an album with their new band mates with only a short time of being formed as a band.

My favourite songs from this album are:"Your Time is Gonna Come" (which sounds as a very Pop Rock song), "Black Mountain Side" (an Indian influenced song played with Tablas), "Communication Breakdown" (my favourite of all the songs in this album) and the heavy "How Many More Times".

It seems that due to previous contractual reasons, Plant wasn`t allowed to appear as a composer of the songs in this album, so Bonham, Jones and Page appear as composers in most of the songs.

The 1994 remastered CDs sound great, IMO, so I recommend this later editions of their albums.
