4 stars Yes, I think it is their most underrated and ultimately their best album. It's special to me two because it was among the cassettes with Supertramp's "Crime of the Century", the first two legitimate albums I got to be familiar with back in the day. I'm far from being any kind of Zeppelin historian, but I do enjoy their music, although very selectively. This to me is the cream of the crop.

"Led Zeppelin III" is quite different from the previous two releases, they abandon most of their blues tendencies in for a softer folksy sound. There are also a couple of rocky moments like the dreadful "Immigrant Song" but the album is largely enjoyable with it's light hearted sound and creative lyrics. Subtle guitar melodies, and unusually sweet vocals from Robert Plant.

Highly recommended, the blend of sweet acoustic guitar, folk centered songwriting with an overtone of rock is highly enjoyable.

Highlights: Gallows Pole, Friends, Tangerine
