3 stars No obvious to exceed 4 monstrous first albums of LED ZEPPELIN (especially II and IV).

But the Houses of the holy doing not bad at all, with the presence of success such as No Quarter (a classical concert that can last up to 36 minutes), D'yer Mak'er, The Rain Song, and The Song Remains The Same, song which gave its name to the Zeppelin's live at Madison Square Garden (1976).

The title of this album has to do with the song Houses of the holy released in 1975 in the sixth album of the group : Physical Graffiti. She did not, according to the group, the 'spirit' of the album.

While this album does not have the intensity of the four previous albums (as I think), there is a (good) disc for a major group in the history of rock, they are to be regarded as the godfathers of Hard Rock as well as Black Sabbath Blue Cherry and other Iron Butterfly.

Also noted as an ultra-positive point: the record sleeve, created by the collectif of designers : Hipgnosis. This is not realy a detail about this disc because it is because of it that the disc is released later than expected (Jimmy Page did not want the original artwork (a tennis racket)).

Here is my fisrt review, I hopes to do well, feel free to tell me if something is wrong in my way of doing ;)

Amaury | 3/5 |
