5 stars The first one from Jimmy as a "leader" after Yardbirds disbanded. The first LED ZEPPELIN album. Its enough to say. A convergence of young and extremely inspired musicians. They were in the borderline between psychedelia and the newborn hard-rock, and nothing better represents this experience as the mystic & melancholich DAZED AND CONFUSED or the superb first hard-rock-ballad ever BABE, IM GONNA LEAVE YOU. Pager could use his previous studio experience to develop a hard-rock masterpiece from the beggining to the end. Altough not yet a definitive ZEPPELIN album, LED ZEPPELIN is a prove from what page would show troughought the 70s: Inspired rock & folk elements from the deep of a Les Paul Custom plus Marshall Amplifiers. Everything mixed in a blend of old blues rock, a sexy young singer and a huge mountain of rhythm behind them. Altough 50% inspired by the electrified blues rock from the Yardbirds, LED ZEPPELIN could prove that all elements in the group could generate enough good stuff to get established as one of the truly good rock bands at that time. Robert Plant would grow into a real charismatic & sensual band leader, Bonham would achieve a maximum level of heavy-drumming in a few months and Jones would start contributing to one of the best rhythm sections that ever appeared in rockn roll history. From the hard-blues GOOD TIMES, BAD TIMES to the heavy-riffed COMMUNICATION BREAKDOWN, LED ZEPPELIN brought to the year of 69 a really impressive painting that the 70s would be even harder tha the late 60s... A masterpiece.
