3 stars LED ZEPPELIN “Houses of Holy” 2.5

Unfortunately this is where LZ failed at the first time. I mean it’s good, but who can make something better than “IV”? Everybody expected a masterpiece again I guess, but ZEPs just did a good, somewhat laid-back album. Opener is a strong track, “No Quarter” and “The Rain Song” are classy LZ tracks, but any other taken from it would look pale on any preceding LZ album. “The Crunge” is hardly bearable, it holds the title of least favourite LZ track of mine. This is where they’ve shown their weak sides, this is where they’ve shown that they’re Gods no more, they’re Mortals and they can make mistakes. And they should, why not?

Best tracks: “No Quarter”, “The Rain Song”, “The Song remains the Same”, “D’yer mak’er”
