3 stars Maybe the most interesting thing in this album is that they didn`t use keyboards. It is maybe LZ`s heaviest album, with a lot of distorted electric guitars, and most of all, great drums by John Bonham, particularly in "Achilles Last Stand", which is my favourite song in this album. "For Your Life" is also good. "Royal Orleans" is the only song co-written by all members of the band (the other songs were only credited to Page / Plant), and it is also good, with good percussion arrangements. "Nobody`s Fault by Mine" is a "Heavy Blues" with harmonica. "Candy Store Rock" sounds like an early Rocker from the fifties, it was relased as a single, and maybe is the weakest song in this album. "Hots on for Nowhere" again has very good drums and good guitar riffs. "Tea for One" is a slow Blues, similar (as other reviewers wrote) to "Since I`ve Benn Loving You". Maybe it is strange, being this album not very liked by many people, but I like it because it sounds more "raw", more "heavy" and energetic in some songs. The 1994 remastered CD of this album sounds very good, IMO. The cover design is like a joke, IMO. An "object`s presence" in images with person dressed as if they were in the fifties, somewhat similar to the "visuals" used in the original version of YES` "9012Live" video.
