Prog Reviewer
4 stars Jimmy Page said that this album became a double album because "we had enough material for one and a half records, so we used previously unreleased recorded songs from the old albums to complete a double album".

This is maybe thier best album. This has some very good songs:

-"In My Time of Dying": recorded in the studio without overdubs, this is a very good song, blues related. Great drums by John Bonham.

-"Kashmir": again great drums by Bonham and very good arrangements, particularly by John Paul Jones playing the mellotron.

-"In the Light": very good keyboards by Jones. The song starts as a "dark" song which has lyrics which in the end have optimism: "If you feel that you can`t go on...everybody needs the light".

-"Bron-Yr-Aur": a very good acoustic guitar piece, which sounds with some "mystery" due to the addition of sound effects to the guitar.

-"Down by the Seaside": very similar in sound to the album "Houses of the Holy" (but originally recorded for their "III" album). With slide guitars by Page.

-"Ten Years Gone": very good guitar riffs and lead guitars by Page.

-"Night Flight": a Pop Rock song in style.

-"The Wanton Song": very good drums by Bonham and very good feedback guitar by Page.

- "Sick Again": again, very interesting and powerful drums by Bonham.

The original cover design also was very interesting.
