It's definitely No Quarter for me. One of my favorite Zep songs of all time. Can't really describe why...just has always really appealed.

The easiest album to choose favourites from, for me it must be two songs since they kind of belongs to each other.

Everyone knows what i talking about. The Song Remains The Same och Rain Song. The later one has always through the years holds a top 5 zep songs of all time, only Tea for One that can match that.

I think the whole album is fantastic.....It's also the first one I bought the week it was released...and the first one to have the orange and green label as opposed to the first four that had the plum and purple label.

Over the hills & far away, just before the Rain song but I chose Oth&fa because the guitar intro is so cute :)

Third No quarter (I prefer it in live)

Hard to pick one, but I went with No Quarter. You hear JPJ really expand the sound, in a different direction.

Joint faves for me on this one. But you can only vote one. Mine are, The song remains the same and No quarter. They are the most heard on there.

Over the Hills for me.  It has everything.  Folk acoustic, hard rock, great melody and vocals, lyrics, perfection.  For TSRTS and NQ, I prefer the live versions so much more.  I don't really like the processed vocals in the studio version of either track.  I see how it adds to the effect in NQ, but it does nothing but detract from TSRTS in my view.

That's a very difficult choice to make because the whole album is so great. I picked The Song Remains The Same because it's the most upbeat tempo song on the album but other songs could as easily be voted best.
