3 stars What a mixed bag this album is. After creating one of the greatest rock albums of all time, Led Zeppelin returned with a just OK follow up. Despite some great songs, The Song Remains The Same, Over The Hills And Far Away (my wife's favorite song), and especially No Quarter, the Zep also has some pandering drivel. The Crunge is disco funk, supposedly a tribute to James Brown, but it falls flat on it's beat. And D'Yer Maker, once you get past the pun in the title, is not even halfway decent reggae. I can't figure out why it still gets so much airplay.

Nonetheless, the rest of the tracks make it a good album.
