Making a compilation like this, it's impossible to please everyone. Questions like ''why this or that song is not included?'' are inevitable. Making 3- or more CD set will not save the situation - in this case somebody will tell that there are lots of fillers. So double CD is a good compromise. ''Mothership'' is a very good collection of songs following in chronological order, from the band's first album to ''In Through The Out Door''. All songs are great, some are masterpieces. Even ''D'Yer Maker'', despised by many prog fans, is one of my favourites. Yes, I'd like to see here tracks like ''Thank You'' or ''I'm Gonna Crawl'', but I know - no chance to include everything in the set.

I own all LZ studio albums, but I like to listen to ''Mothership'' from time to time for two reasons: good choice of songs and sound quality - it is higher than on studio albums (I tell of CDs I own, I never bothered to get the best remastered versions). Recommended to those who only started to discover the band's music, but this good set of songs can be also useful for moderate LED ZEPPELIN fans like me.
