4 stars With their third album, Led Zeppelin turned even further away from straight up blues rock (the only track in that category is Since I've Been Loving You, an excellent piece in that genre), and more toward prog and folk.

Sure, there is perhaps their greatest heavy rock song ever, The Immigrant Song, and the frenetic Celebration Day, but this is still though of as mostly Led Zeppelin's acoustic album, probably because it is more heavily swayed toward acoustic than any of their other albums. And great acoustic it is. Who can resist the unsubtle humor of Gallow's Pole?

Not their best, but a fine album of a very good band transitioning into a great band.

Evolver | 4/5 |
