4 stars For me this is the best album of this band, as it is more interesting to listen real interactive group playing than their more sterile and nonspontaneous studio recordings. The ultimate highlights here are the title song "The Song Remains the Same" which is tied together with the more peaceful "The Rain Song", where John Paul Jones plays some Mellotrons instead of his bass guitar. There's also a nearly twenty-seven minutes long version of "Dazed and Confused", and when compared to the song marathons of Deep Purple, this one has much more content in it, and it works really well. The original studio version of this song is nothing in my opinion when compared to the one here. There are also some interesting experimentations of guitar being played with a cello bow here. If you like glitter/glam style stuff you should check out the movie of which soundtrack this double album is, but I prefer the audio version only, allowing me to associate freely with the music without the visual content which I don't like. If you like classic 1970's bluesy hard rock music, then I would consider this as an obvious classic to be acquired in the record collections.
