Shit yeah. "Presence" has its problems, but Achilles still stands up. I wrote a whole goddamn essay about it in high school. Zeppelin was probably my favourite band at the time and I sometimes feel bad that I haven't given them as much attention over the past few years.

I must go to youtube and search for Ten Years Gone immediately!

Very, very respectable choice, Bonster. I think that was that asshole Beav's favorite song ever or something. Got that one right.

Oh yes, Ten Years Gone. That and In the Light are two of Zeppelin's most under-appreciated songs (I say "under-appreciated" in the sense that they are not radio staples like so many other Zeppelin songs).

One Zep song that I've always loved that you hardly ever hear outside of its album is Down By The Seaside. Just perfect.

I really love that song, specifically Page's "watery" guitar sound.

It's something Hedge also does in Peace On Clay, which is part of why I like that track more than most people.

Down by the Seaside is certainly a great song. The Plant-Tori Amos collaboration on the Encomium tribute is one of the few bright spots from that album as well.

Some new Zeppelin goodies in the Lance's Mom thread, for those who are into that sort of nonsense.

So, I've owned Zeppelin II on vinyl for a while, a friend gave it to me a while back, and I've never done anything with it. Travis picked it up to listen to just now, and noticed there are two sleeves in it. It's not a double vinyl right? If not, does anyone know what WAS in that other sleeve?

How do you all feel about In Through the Out Door? Personally, I love its eclecticism, and it has two absolute classics in I'm Gonna Crawl and In the Evening. JPJ also gets a well-deserved chance to shine in terms of songwriting, and Plant offers one of his most delicate, poetic lyrics in All My Love.

Ehh...

It has some good songs, but All My Love is a musical embarrassment. If that synth crap is the direction they were headed in, consider me thankful that John Bonham died when he did.

I do love Fool In The Rain and the other titles you mentioned, but it's by far their weakest album, and I would put the Page/Plant reunion album Walking Into Clarksdale above it. Great and underrated album, that one.

You know, I'll assume some % of that comment is just a joke, but, seriously, you sound like such a douchebag when you speak like this.

Sweet. I did my high school senior English thesis on Zeppelin. Best decision I made that year - getting graded for going to the library and digging up old articles from Rolling Stone, etc. I have no idea whatever happened to that paper, which is probably just as well that I never see it again. It would probably be pretty embarrassing to read now...
And yes, Achilles is a tour de force.

Nope, Presence. What a bore, Achilles aside. Tea For One sounds like a Zeppelin cover band in a bar stumbling through Since I've Been Loving You. Royal Orleans and Candy Store Rock are godawful. For Your Life and Nobody's Fault are enjoyable, particularly the former. Barely remember Hots On For Nowhere, but I recall it being a trifle.

ITTOD is embarrassing in spots, but In The Evening, Fool In The Rain and I'm Gonna Crawl are legit. The rest are disatrous, but in a fun way. I'm thoroughly entertained by it, overall.

Well I wouldn't call Presence superlative, either.

I agree on the standouts from each record, FWIW. But Presence has far more Zeppelin fan supporters than ITTOD, from what I've read.
