this.

as for following up In Through The Out Door, I read once that Jimmy Page and John Bonham talked a bit about getting Zeppelin back to the really riff-heavy ROCK before Bonham sadly died.

Sucks really that we'll never know what would have emerged, but also interesting to imagine a Led Zeppelin in the 1980s! Wonder if they would have come back with that ball-busting rock album or mixed it with more contemporary sounds as well. The idea of a Led Zeppelin featuring big phil collins sounding drums is a bit hard to stomach

Ha, I like that only two of them were discussing this, like they were having secret undergound meetings to overthrow Robert Plant, John Paul Jones and their synthy crap.

I guess that I'm in the minority in liking All My Love. The synth may sound dated, but it is almost stately in JPJ's hands. The song has certainly held up a lot better than Plant's early solo work.

I love All of my Love too. The synths do not bother me at all.

It's absurdly long, but absolutely has some great moments.

Re: All My Love, the chorus, string parts, cheesy synth horn solo and Robert Plant's vocals in the outro are all weak at best, occasionally awful. However, Page's solo is beautiful, the lyrics are good, and I find the verses very enjoyable. Plus, Bonham's fucking LOUD drums during the break always crack me up for some reason, as if placing him there in the mix was one of his conditions for playing on it to begin with.

Ah, yes. BIG. LOG. It just doesn't carry the same connotation as it did when I was 9...

I've only listened to the first six, so I am not qualified to do a ranking.

You should make a list. The top six aren't likely to change anyway.

II has always been my favorite. I think it's pretty close to perfect. It's my go-to if I want to get the fucking Led out.

In polls the winner always seems to be IV, IV, FOUR! But I think one is an astonishing debut, though two might be their greatest album ever.

some of the best zeppelin footage ever: YouTube - Led Zeppelin-How Many More Times, Part 1 (Live @ Danmarks Radio, 03/17/69)

In my backstage encounter with Robert Plant in 2002, I asked him which song that he wrote with Jimmy Page to be the closest to perfect, his answer was twofold, Kashmir and The Rain Song.
