3 stars An icon in the modern culture.

From the artwork to the music, everything is iconic. This is the problem with this album. It's status is larger than the product itself. When I bought it for the first time (on cassette) twenty years ago, I was disappointed. I thought it was hugely overrated. It still is, because the fact does not measure up to the mythical status this album has got. But it is still an icon and it will ever be that. I am happy with that.

The music itself is good. Some tracks are also superb. The opener Good Times, Bad Times is very good. Dazed And Confused and Communication Breakdown is superb. The rest is good to very good. There is no bad tunes here. Led Zeppelin really marks their arrival with a mixture of blues and heavy rock. I think this is a lovely album, but not as good as the following albums. But I still treasure it and marvel at it's elegance. I really like this album, but it is not a masterpiece.

It is still an icon though. I would love to have the artwork on my wall in either my living room or my bedroom.

3.5 stars, but still an essential album due to it's status and influence on today's modern world.
