3 stars Zeppelin I is the famous album that started it all for this band. The best way to describe this is a mix of blues and rock. You can tell the band was tad more "compositionally advanced" then much of the rock scene at the time. But I would be lying if I said this is prog.

Songwise this isn't terribly diverse. You have your straight rockers in 'Good Times, Bad Times,' and 'Communication Breakdown,' while you've got your blues songs in 'Your Time Is Gonna Come,' 'I Can't Quit You Baby,' and 'How Many More Times.'

'Dazed and Confused' is probably the standout track, as it is more structurally diverse than most of the others, containing a few tempo and dynamic sound changes, and has an overall dark and uneasy atmosphere.

This is a great collection of songs, but unfortunately, I outgrew my love for the blues a long time ago, and much of this album just leaves me cold.
