3 stars I think Led Zeppelin IV is overrated. The record is unequal: some songs are quite excellent, like "Stairway to heaven" and "Black dog", while some are ordinary, like "Battle of evermore" and "When the levee breaks". The guitar often sounds a bit garage, and despite the acoustic parts are melodic, they do not have the style I prefer the most regarding such arrangements. The drums parts are good. The lead singer's voice is very good: he screams with emotion and it's not irritating. He has a nice style. The overall sound lacks some luster and the bass is definitely less bottom, if one compares to their second album. I prefer Led Zeppelin II, where the instruments exhibition is quite more spectacular and convincing. "Black dog" surely inspired the making of Rush' Caress Of Steel, because it has pretty much the same style.

Rating: 3.5 stars
