I think it's an incredibly good album. i've revisited it a lot over the years. That "wall of sound' that comes crashing out at you with BDOS, the melancholy of MIS, and the tempo and drive of PP. an earlier post didn't like the sax solo but i think it was invigorating. the playfulness of WTD, a drumless FL.... who knew?....the yearning of LINBG....loved that stuff. even the bonus track far post was awesome. the keyboards!! wow. very moody.
did we really want Led Zeppelin 2.0. maybe some did but i was ready for what was in robert's head. and his voice, although not 1969's, was simply awesome. i'm listenting to the piano solo in "far post" and am astounded actually. go baby go!!
