3 stars Hmmm... the cover seems to evoke memories of Hipgnosis covers, but just doesn't quite click. And "doesn't quite click" is a good descriptive phrase for this album. For instance, I really love the music for Achilles Last Stand, but the vocal melody just doesn't sound finished, and renders the song less memorable than it could have been.

Much of the rest of the album sounds like leftovers, or rehashed ideas from other songs. Tea For One in particular sounds like a rehash of Since I've Been Loving You, and is nowhere near as good.

On the other hand, Nobody's Fault But Mine is not bad, and would fit well on most Led Zep albums. But all in all, this is just an okay album, nothing special.
