2 stars One of the most overrated albums ever

To many people this is one of the first hard rock albums in history. Along with Cream and Hendrix releases. It always depends how you describe hard rock music. To me it's still blues just a bit heavier. Maybe in 1969 it was revolutionary. I'm not the one to question that. But I'm finding any Beatles album from late 60's much better than this release. Even though I'm huge hard rock fan. Why? Because to me Led Zeppelin first album isn't hard rock release. I still like Dazed and Confused. Yeah this is pretty strong tune. The bass parts somewhere in the middle of that song are excellent. Communication Breakdown? Primitive piece of pre-punk rock music. And you call it a classic? How Many More Times one of the most boring songs I've ever heard. I'm not huge fan of blues but I can accept it in Beatles or Jethro Tull versions. But Led Zeppelin? Take any Muddy Waters release and give it distortion. So you have Led Zeppelin. I know to many people this is great album but to me it sounds lame, thin and is covered by spider's web. Better listen to Black Sabbath cos that was hard rock back then.
