Mr. Mustard
4 stars Zeppelin IV is widely considered the bands best album. It is understandable to see why, as much of the songwriting is improved and focused as the group finds themselves in a comfortable sound. Much of the blues sound that dominated their first few albums is gone, instead this album is mostly straight forward rock.

Perhaps what is so great about this album is the consistency; every song on here is strong, and each offers something unique. 'Rock and Roll' and 'Black Dog' are classic rock standards and tend to receive massive radio play. 'Misty Mountain Hop' 'Four Sticks' are equally as rocking as well.

Perhaps the only songs I dislike are 'Battle of Evermore' and 'Stairway to Heaven.' The former is unique to the album, but much of it is repetitive and doesn't really go anywhere, which is a similar problem for Stairway, which has also been spoiled by incessantly frequent radio play. But overall, this is a solid collection of songs, and is probably THE essential Zeppelin record.
