2 stars By 1976 most of us Led Zeppelin fans had about given up hope for an album of high quality songs from front to back and had started to wish for at least a couple of great tracks. That's pretty much what we had gotten since LZ4 and we expected more of the same. And that's what we received with "Presence." It's as if the Mississippi River of creativity had turned into a creek for this foursome but they bravely continued onward yet not upward. "Achilles Last Stand" and "Nobody's Fault but mine" are classic Zep but, unfortunately, the rest of the songs don't do much at all. Like the strange little monolith featured on the cover, they just sit there and really don't mean anything. At that time the band was still one of the most popular in the entire world but this album merely reaffirmed to their admirers that they had already given us their best in order to reach that plateau and this was what was left.
