4 stars This is a soundtrack from Led Zeppelin's film with the same name and a live album, on two CDs. The film, who consisted of gigs and portraits of each member, was shown on all major cinemas in the world when it was released.

Led Zeppelin hardly need any introduction. This band was the biggest rock'n'roll/hard rock band from 1970 to their split-up in 1980. They are in my view the best rock'n'roll band of all time. Their music has influenced two generation of rock'n'roll and metal bands. Led Zeppelin's place in the history of music, are on the same level as The Beatles. I also rate them higher than the Rolling Stones.

As musicians; Led Zeppelin was better than any other bands. The rhythm section consisting of John Bonham (drums) and John Paul Jones (bass), set new standards in the music industry. Led Zeppelin was fronted by the guitarist Jimmy Page and the vocalist Robert Plant. Together; they wrote and released more than a dozen of the most well known songs from the '70.

The Song Remains The Same are Led Zeppelin in full bloom. Classics like Rock And Roll, the title track, Moby Dick, No Quarter and Led Zeppelin's trade mark; Stairways To Heaven get the full live treatment. The music is intense, noisy and beautiful on the same time. Led Zeppelin are going over the top in a 27 minutes long version of Dazed And Confused. More than three times longer than the studio version. No band would dare to do the same in the '90. But the live version of this classic song, is an example of a gig in the '70. This decade was full of wonderful music and pointless musical over-indulgence on stage (and drug and alcohol misuse behind the stage and sometimes on the stage). This album is full of life and wonderful music. Led Zeppelin is tearing the audience apart and taking them to places very few other bands has ever taken their audiences. I think this album is a classic album, with some flaws. Most notably the sound, which is not good. This album has not aged well and I understand why they released that other live album some years ago. But still; this is a good live album.

4 stars.
