2 stars The Song Remains the Same is the first live release of Led Zeppelin although it was a movie soundtrack. After five commercially succesful records the expectations should have been very high. If we look to the track list, we'll find most songs coming from the latest studio record called The Houses of the Holy and the title of this live recording is also a song coming from this record. Also some of Zep's greatest hits are included like Black Dog, Rock'n Roll and the most famous Stairway to Heaven.

The record starts with Rock'n Roll which seems to be good choice. The performing of this opening track however is the worst I've ever heard of such a great name. The sang sounds awfull and the guitarplaying is messy. The next songs repair the damage a bit, but still this cannot really overcome the damage done. The next tracks are good performed and show the more progressive side of Led Zeppeling. With the extremely extended version of Dazed and Confused I'm off. This track is nice, but becomes really boring if played for over 20 minutes.

While I must admit I'm just a mediocre fan of Led Zeppelin, I still think that this live recording is quiet weak, while having some good moments. I'll stuck to the studio recordings.
