4 stars When Led Zeppelin dropped their maverick of a debut on the world we weren't ready, I'm still not sure that we are!

Together with other major releases that same year, like The Court Of The Crimson King and Trout Mask Replica, this album marked a new shift in rock music. Even though they all were exploring completely different aspects of the genre the results were still quite similar, namely music history in the making. From the first seconds of Good Times, Bad Times I knew that this experience would be really special and, for most part, the album didn't let me down. Led Zeppelin I might still rely heavily on their blues-origin, like Jimmy Page's previous band The Yardbirds, but this music was definitely in many ways beyond the blues territory that dominated the rock music scene at the time.

I think that the short composition Communication Breakdown deserves a bit more attention from the music fans since it must have played an important part in the development of the more riff-based bands like Black Sabbath. This was hard rock, a genre that would be explored extensively during the next decade and Led Zeppelin would become one of its biggest icons.
