Led Zeppelin (Led Zeppelin III) 1970




Inner Sleeve Side A & Side B




I get tired of hearing people trashing Led Zeppelin III as being too "soft" for their taste. If you want a repeat performance, stick with any other artist out there that is hellbent on regurgitating the same thing over and over. For me, the folksie acoustic songs that are found throughout III are fantastic. I want to see a different side to them. We know what the band is already capable of doing. So let them spread their wings and try something different. Was this a departure? Of course. If you're looking for LZ I, you might wanna keep moving along. But if you did that, you'd be depriving yourself of rockers like Immigrant Song,and Out On The Tiles and Gallows Pole gives you a good banjo boogie stomper. As revered as LZ II is, I have to put this one slightly ahead of that one. It's just personal taste.

Out of all the songs here, I would say that my two favorite would be Out On The Tiles with Page's massive riff and Plant's vocal harmonies during the chorus. And Tangerine is just as awesome with it's arrangement and a showcase for Mr. Page. I also have a deeper connection to the song more so now because of it's inclusion in Almost Famous. It was the perfect song to close out the perfect movie to my eyes and ears. The song itself makes me want to watch the movie again, right now. Sh*t, now I gotta add That's The Way to the best of III. There's just so much to pick apart on this album because of it's diversity. Oh, and there is of course...

...Immigrant Song. Do I really need to say anything about this song? Instant classic and probably the most played song by guitar players out there, other than maybe Stairway To Heaven.

Fave Songs: Immigrant Song, Friends, Out On The Tiles, That's The Way, Gallows Pole and Tangerine.

I LOVE the album cover for III. The design work on the cover and the inner covers is just so damn cool.

I will probably be listening to this the rest of the day and will most likely post even more stuff on what I think about III as it hits me.
