5 stars Tired and frustraded by particular problems and touring stress, LED ZEPPELIN recorded PRESENCE with Robert Plant in a wheelchair, Jimmy Page completed addicted on heroin and Bonzo filled by alcohol. Jones were quite frustraded on this mainstream, also feeling that LED ZEPPELIN were somewhat "dying". The band changed the creativity support into a generic maner of made a good cover of themselves. Itīs not bad in time of crisis, but we must remember that a year before everything was a huge succes. PRESENCE is well produced, the sound is "big", some fat riffs, some dinossaur drumming, but the album lacks the energy of early 70īs ZEP. Itīs impossible to feel the melancholy of Plantīs vocals in absolutely ALL tracks. Anyway, Page & co. still delivers some majestic tracks: to tell the truth, a TRIO - ACHILLES LAST STAND, NOBODY FAULTS BUT MINE & TEA FOR ONE. Very, very good stuff from the beggining to the end, blending all ZEPīS influences into a really mature production. These three tracks are the synthesis of this moment, and theyīre enough material to make PRESENCE a classic ZEP album. You may feel that something is missing, you may find difficult do define what is missing: but itīs missing. Get it, anyway.
