3 stars 3.5 stars really

I was in high school when I heard this record for the first time. I enjoyed Black Dog but my favorite song was Stairway To Heaven. I have to say one thing in here. I usually don't pay attention to what others call a classic and the best. But this time I must admit Stariway To Heaven is definitely my favorite Led Zeppeling song. Why? Because it's really far from their other stuff. Simple as that. This song was really a breaking point and something really original. It's not that old fashioned rock and roll or blues. It's dynamic, fresh and fascinating. I still enjoy this tune a lot. Rest of those songs isn't so great but still better than their previous albums. Black Dog, Four Sticks and Misty Mountain Hop are strong hard rock tunes. It's nothing too complicated or very original but good enough to enjoy a bit. Battle Of Evermore is also a good song but this time it's a close encounter with folk music. Worst song on this album? Rock and Roll, such silly filler that would fit for their debut. Led Zeppelin fourth album is a piece of solid work. I still don't think it could stand the pace with most of progressive rock of those times but good enough to listen and enjoy...a bit;)
