5 stars 'Stairway To Heaven' - Led Zeppelin (Single)

How could it possibly get less than five stars? It would be shameful. The only reason a song like this could receive less than that would be because of it's overplayed nature, but that's only a product of the song's original quality.

All preconceptions and overpopularities aside, the song is amazing. There's a very intended buildup from acoustic to clean to distorted. Cryptic, rhythmic lyrics from Robert Plant; the soaring, perfect guitar solo from Page...

Clocking in at eight minutes, it's easy to see why Led Zeppelin can at least be considered Prog-Related from a song like this. Overplayed, yes. But when it comes down to it, an excellent song, deserving of it's title.

Masterful.
