II gives IV a run for it's money, that's for sure!

Wow, no love for III? I expected more from that album.

I think a lot of people appreciate it, but it's hard to argue for it being the best. There are probably a good number of people who might place it at #2, who knows.

I, Presence, and In Through didn't receive any votes either, and I think III is better than all of those.

I think I'm the only person who loves Presence...I'm too embarrassed to even vote.

True. Though I have met a few people that think Presence is their best album - personally, I don't really like it, I've never been able to sit through the whole thing. I was debating between III, II and Houses and you're probably right insofar as I'd put III as my second fave.

Between Houses and IV for me, although I haven't listened to Physical Graffiti in a while.

There was a guy that wrote a Led Zeppelin retrospective article for Rolling Stone not too long ago, and he called Presence their best album.

I like a lot of things about it, but I don't know if it's as consistent as some of the classics, or as rewarding and diverse as Physical Graffiti.

However, Achilles' Last Stand is one of the greatest things Zeppelin ever recorded, as well as John Bonham's most impressive recording.

Don't forget Tea For One. That song has the kind of guitar work in it that makes you want to reach for your electric every time you hear it.

Robert has said quite frequently that he feels Presence to be the best representation of Zeppelin as a band; I suppose, however, that such a statement does not entail that he believes it to be the best. In my mind, IV is not only Zeppelin's finest hour, but the finest album in rock history. I almost want to vote for III, however, if only because it really is deserving of at least one vote.

For me, it's:

1. Houses of the Holy
2. IV
3. Physical Graffiti
4. II
5. III

But they're all fantastic albums.
