4 stars This is a review of the original release of the CD. Apparently there is a reissue from 2004 with a slightly different set list.

This CD is a collection of songs from MTV's "Unledded" broadcast (also released on DVD) which reunited Jimmy Page and Robert Plant, with different musicians in London, Wales and Morocco. The majority of the songs are Led Zeppelin tunes, as you would expect. Three songs are new, the best being City Don't Cry, a very nive piece with African rhythms.

Of the Zep songs, a few are very similar to the original recordings, but the best are the ones that have been rearranged. No Quarter is great as mostly a guitar/vocal duet. Four Sticks played acoustically is great. And Kashmir, with Middle Eastern orchestration is just astounding.

It's also good to hear that Plant has pretty much kept his voice, unlike some of the other screamers from his time (yes, I'm looking at you, Rod Stewart and Roger Daltrey).

Evolver | 4/5 |
