4 stars We've come from the land of the ice and snow.

I'm a real fan of Zeppelins first four albums. In Zeppelins third Zep had managed to build their sound to a more versatile ground. The album would include a full out rocker song, maybe the best live tour opener ever, the overplayed "Immigrant Song". There's folkier tunes on the album that give a new dimension to Zeppelin, but my favourite on this album is the bluesy "Since ive been loving you" which just blows my mind everytime i listen to it. Plants high soaring screams and Pages immortal axes makes the skin on my back crawl. The fact that bassist John Paul Jones now had been given more freedom in experimenting the keyboards on Zep tracks really adds to the whole album. The bluesy organ that he adapts to "Since.." probably makes him one of the greatest multi-instrumentalists ever lived, and this was Zeppelin.

There's plenty on this album to like, except for the tracks i mentioned, i also like the Roy harper one and "Out on the tiles". The problem with this album is that it lacks the master touch that the first had shown, and what the latter would come to show. Still a great Zep album. 4 Stars
