5 stars Led Zeppelin, on their fourth album, managed to create one of the greatest rock albums of all time. Sure, after nearly forty years (It's been that long? Damn!), we may have heard every song a few too many times, but it is still a great album.

And on this album, Zep reach true progressiveness. Black Dog with it's beat folding in on itself, is a masterpiece. Sandy Denny provides excellent vocals to the prog-folk classic The Battle of Evermore. And then there is Stairway To Heaven, a song so great even Frank Zappa felt compelled to cover it (without making fun of it).

Even the non-prog songs, like Rock And Roll fir perfectly on this masterpiece.

4.5 stars (they lose half a star for the non-prog songs), rounded back up to five.

Evolver | 5/5 |
