4 stars This is a very underrated album, IMO, but it is one of my favourites from LZ. The underrated John Paul Jones showed in this album his skills as a composer and as a keyboard player. The keyboards in this album are maybe the most interesting thing in this album. I don`t know why Page didn`t compose more songs in this album, but Jones and Plant did a very good job in the songwriting.

This album was recorded after a hard time in Plant`s life. So, he doesn`t sound as years before, singing with more feeling particularly in "All My Love" (dedicated to his late son) and in "I`m Gonna Crawl". LZ wasn`t the same band as before, and they were changing their style for keyboards dominated songs.

"Carouselambra" is a vey good "Prog Related" song. "In the Evening" is "dark", with a very good lead guitar section. "South Bound Saurez", "Fool in the Rain" and "Hot Dog" show the band not taken themselves very seriously, and these three songs brought a balance to the more "serious" songs of the rest of the album.

Bonham`s drums are very good as usual, and after he died, LZ announced their split, knowing that he was the member that had most of the "power" and "soul" in their sound.
