Kashmir is too repetitive and In My Time of Dying is too bluesy for me. I'll go with Ten Years Gone.

Yes! Thank you! Playing guitar with a bow is pretty badass and all, but do you really have to play the same riff throughout pretty much the entire song? Confused

^I can admit that I'm biased against songs that I find are overplayed on the radio.
How would you describe it, then?

Tough choice but Ten Years Gone just edges it.

In my time of dying, but I love all of these tracks.
Really dig the live feel of it, and it seems to have been just that: a jam session in the studio. Particularly enjoy Bonzo's cement mixing on it.

It's got about 3-4 musical ideas featuring some delicious melodies, nice drum work and the flanger in one place. But the repetitiveness really takes it out of the song. I've read somewhere that the Zeps had enough ideas for only an album and a half. Guess that's why they stretched it out.

^Good points. I do rather like the drumming in Kashmir.
