In fact, you could say that about all of Led Zeppelin IV with the exception of Four Sticks and When The Levee Breaks.
I guess this proves that Central Florida rock stations completely blow.

They play The Eagles (mainly "Hotel California"), Steve Miller's 3 songs, and fucking George Thorogood constantly.

Every year during the 70s it was the #1 song on KLOS's end-of-year countdown.


Yes, children, the fucking 70s.

Fans of "hard" Zeppelin really oughtta give Presence a chance, it's very underappreciated but it's probably their hardest album start to finish.

If I hear that "some people call me the space cowboy..." line coming out of a radio again, I'm going to break the radio in half.

Definitely a mixed bag, but it's worth it for NFBM and For Your Life.

"Achilles Last Stand" really is a chore, isn't it??? That is one long, pounding, driving, galloping, bearing song for the entire damn, what 9 or 10 minutes???

Phew! That song is like a workout!

Am I the only one who finds Achilles Last Stand a little boring? Sure, the drumming is great but otherwise... meh

Well, I called it a "chore". So that's not exactly a compliment.

I agree. It's so all-out, full-force for so long, I do start to drift away and wander almost every time I listen to it.

Royal Orleans and it's homage to JPJ's drunken tranny adventure is great, and Tea for One just closes it's perfectly although it's not quite on a par with SIBLY, kind of need a slow down simmer at the end of this album

I've never been able to get into Presence as much as the other albums.

Presence is certainly their most difficult album. It may seem strange, but Robert has often commented that it represents the essence of the band more strongly than any of their other albums. To me, that distinction would seem to belong to III or IV, as each contains a variety of styles: blues, folk, hard rock, epic narrative, and even country.

Count me in as a fan of Achilles' Last Stand. Yes, the drumming is superlative, perhaps Bonham's best, but the song is great in its own right. So what if it's long? Personally I find Kashmir a bigger slog to sit through. BTW, fans of Iron Maiden may see a connection between this and their song Alexander the Great, which certainly contains some nods in the drums department. The whole band is on fire on that one. Def my favorite on Presence, and maybe in my Zep top 10.

Also, Presence is a "difficult" album in ways, but it has a hell of a lot more substance than In Through the Outdoor, which is an easier listen but a much less rewarding one. I could live without hearing anything but Fool in the Rain again and not be missing much. Leppelin+Synthesizers=BAD. I still don't get why All My Love is so popular. Awful track. Part of me is glad Bonham died so the band didn't have to carry this shit into the 80's and tarnish their reputation.
