Led Zeppelin (Houses Of The Holy) 1973

Houses Of The Holy

I will probably get raked over the coals for saying this, but personally, I've never been a fan of Houses Of The Holy. I find it to be far to uneven to be enjoyed, even in small doses. There are only 2 songs that I can listen to with regularity and those are The Song Remains The Same and Dancing Days. Coming in close after that is Over The Hills And Far Away. The rest of the album is average and below average. Those below average songs are some pretty ghastly clunkers that I didn't like then and can barely stomach them now because they strayed too far off the beaten path. Yes, I said in an earlier review that they should be able to expand their sound. But they were able to retain that classic Zep sound. Here they do not and that's why I have a problem with it.

No Quarter and The Crunge are overrated and I still can't see why people can rave about them. They are just not that good at all. Yes, each has a little bit something I find interesting, but as a whole they suck as songs and ones that I just can't get into at all.

Album cover although controversial is still pretty original and iconic to this day.
