It's certainly good enough to advance along with those other two, though.

You know, I just knew you were going to vote for Levee. Your Zeppelin tastes are 180 degrees different to my own.

I hope you realize that you'll probably be voting for it throughout the duration of IV...

Screwy's least favorites on the first four albums are as follows:

I - Dazed And Confused
II - Bring It On Home
III - Tangerine (actually, Hats Off To Roy Harper probably, but that doesn't count)
IV - When The Levee Breaks

His tastes in Zeppelin are different from everybody's.

That's not intentional.

We still love you Screwy. Even if your tastes are a bit wonky, whatever.

I think Presence is absolute crap after all. I know a few here will disagree with that.

You, my friend, have to lay off the crack!!!!

My vote goes to Four Sticks this time.

Black Dog kicks ass, no doubt. But Four Sticks is eerie and rocking! I love Plant's voice in that song! And somewhere after the 3 min mark, when those horns (?) kick in the song is taken to another level! Yeah... all these songs are equally awesome. This is extremely difficult.

It's Plant's vocal on that one that makes it such an easy choice for me. Listened to it again today, and it's just so...screechy. Other than the sped-up vocals on HOTH, I'm not sure if he ever went that high ever again.

On a positive note, the listen proved just how kick-ass this album is. Levee is sick. And, though it was overplayed, I'll be very disappointed if Misty Mountain Hop gets ousted early.

I don't feel that Four Sticks is the obvious choice here, although I will vote for it as well.

The fear when this came out was that Zep was gonna continue on with the more folky approach that III was. But that was laid to rest quickly............ "Hey hey mama said the way you move, gonna make you sweat, gonna make you groove.......... Kaboom!

Another tour de force by all four members, but Bonzo really shines here, especially on Levee, Misty Mountain & Four Sticks & of course the opening to Rock & Roll (which, as shown by son Jason at the reunion show, just cannot be duplicated). And every song on here could have reason to move on. But picking 3 that truly stand out here without penalizing for overplay on classic rock stations over the last 30 years is easy. Black Dog, Rock & Roll and Stairway to Heaven are three of the greatest Zeppelin songs that exist and are all on the same album. We can fight all we want over the order of the next 5 rounds, but these 3 should be in the final epic battle

Found an old love letter a few years back from a girlfriend from the Zep days. It was signed "The May Queen"


Battle of Evermore

I can see Black Dog and Stairway To Heaven, but I'd go with Levee over Rock And Roll.
