5 stars Just goes to show, I never knew the late Sandy Denny contributed vocals on ' Battle of Evermore'. You learn something new everyday!Another masterpiece from Led Zeppelin, arguably their most popular album from a fans perspective, commercially I think their biggest selling album. More progressive than the previous albums, the ' Rune' album as it is affectionately called included the epic ' Stairway to Heaven'. Tolkienesque is a descriptive term that would start showing on a few albums and tracks that were to come.' Black Dog' starts off the album with great sexual innuendos. A great rocking track with sound drumming and guitar work from Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones ( you know- the bass player!). Other highlights apart from ' Stairway To Heaven' are ' Battle of Evermore', almost hypnotic in it's delivery, the gutsy ' Misty Mountain Hop' and the closing ' When the Levee Breaks'. They just got better and better. One can argue that commercially people have grown sick of the ' Rune' album but one has to seperate that apart from reviewing this album, in many years to come it will consistently be applauded for it greatness.
