5 stars The best LED ZEPPELIN album ever ? Why not. The best ROCK´N ROLL album ever ? Calm down...but...why not ? At that time everything was clear, heavy, technical and full of joy and drugs. As a supergroup, LED ZEPPELIN started producing it fourth album with the world at their backs. It worked. Bringing some of the most memorable rock riffs of the century (ROCK´N ROLL & BLACK DOG), the best ethereal-complex-radio ballad of all times (STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN), the best acoustic ballad of a hard-rock group (GOING TO CALIFORNIA) and many, MANY other huge and complex songs (see FOUR STICKS or the earthshaking WHEN THE LEVEE BREAKS),LED ZEPPELIN IV is undoubtedly a masterpiece. Maybe it was the point where all members were really connected in one major line of rock composing, without major interferences from drugs or personal problems, a phenomena that would drain LED ZEPPELIN to the end after 75. If you´re tired of STAIRWAY it´s not enough to underrate such glorious recording. Come on, how many rock groups could record an album that sold as well as it really represents a piece & signature of an entire decade ?

Surrealistic, brilliant & obligatory.
