  1. Why did this get moved to newbies? This is worthy of the main thread. I am not a newbie, I have been a member for like 7 years and a Led Zeppelin fan for more than 20.
  2. I'll start. I skipped Physical Graffiti and Presence because meh. They're good but not great and I didn't feel like it. Also omitted CODA. The First two albums were very difficult, due to 90% of all songs containing Baby Baby Baby. Led Zeppelin I I Know What It Means To Be Alone I Can Hear It Calling Me The Way It Used To Do I Have A Bird That Whistles, "Soul Of A Woman Was Created Below" Drive Me Insane, Trouble Is Gonna Come To You I Don't Know What It Is I Like About You My Love For You I Could Never Hide I Know It Is Alright in My Mind Led Zeppelin II: Way Dow
  3. For me it was watching the O2 performance in theaters. It was the closest I will ever get to seeing them in concert, as I had not previously seen the concert, the theater was packed and beer was served so I was a little buzzed while watching it (for the complete concert experience imo). I cried I was so moved by it all. Going along with your origin story, in my case there was no one day where I became a Led Zeppelin fan. It was a gradual process. I was 8 or 9 (I cannot even remember the year, much less the day) when I first heard it played in my dad's car. My parents are divorced and
  4. I have watched the DVD soooo many times. I did check and I was surprised to see that it is playing in two major theaters in Nashville, one in Imax. When the O2 performance came to town it was only playing in a local arts theater. I may have to go to the Imax version... Having gone to the O2 viewing, there is just something special about watching Led Zeppelin on the big screen with an audience. However, the O2 performance was extra special because none of us had seen the performance. I hope Dazed and Confused from TSRTS is featured, my favorite Led Zeppelin live anything is its "San Franc
  5. Immediately What is and What Should Never Be in Silver Linings Playbook came to mind. What a powerful scene. I was so pleasantly surprised by one of my favorite Led Zeppelin songs but the scene was so intense and hard to watch at the same time. It was a perfect song for the scene - the song's "light and shade" vs. bi-polar disorder's mania and depression. It was so emotional for me that I actually cried watching it in the theater.
  6. I had this idea to come up with a few invented albums made up of various songs that sort of flow together nicely. fake album 1: What Is and What Should Never Be Side 1: What is and What Should Never Be Heartbreaker Communication Breakdown Since I've Been Loving You Side 2: The Rain Song Friends (let's pretend that audio error at the end isn't there) Fool In The Rain Tea For One (sort of a SIBLY reprise) fake album number 2: "Bron-Yr-Aur" Side 1: Over the Hills and Far Away Tangerine Bron-Yr-Aur Stomp Going to California Battle of Evermore Side 2:
  7. Well they are all classics. I could say Walter's Walk which I believe is the last recorded Led Zeppelin song (The music was old but Robert's vocals were clearly late 70's and I believe post-ITTOD). Led Zeppelin's sound changed so much in the "latter days". If you mean last classic song as in the last song that sounded more like their earlier work I would say Fool in the Rain.
  8. This should be interesting. I'll start: Led Zeppelin Communication Breakdown How Many More Times Good Times Bad Times Dazed and Confused I Can't Quit You Baby Babe I'm Gonna Leave You Black Mountain Side You Shook Me Your Time is Gonna Come Led Zeppelin II What is and What Should Never Be Heartbreaker Whole Lotta Love Bring it On Home The Lemon Song Ramble On Livin' Lovin Maid (She's Just a Woman) Moby Dick Thank You Led Zeppelin III Immigrant Song Since I've Been Loving You That's the Way Tangerine Friends Gallows Pole Bron-Y-Aur Stomp Hats Off
  9. I have been to many concerts but rarely have I seen an artist more than once: Amy Grant 3x when I was a kid. Robert Plant twice. Once at the Ryman Auditorium (aka the "Mother Church of Country Music") and once at the War Memorial, both in Nashville. At the latter I saw Jack White in the audience in the upper balcony. Cage the Elephant twice. that's it. All other artists I have only seen once. MGMT, Stone Temple Pilots (though I had to leave halfway through the show), Dave Matthews Band, The Doobie Brothers, No Doubt, Alanis Mourisette, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Linkin P
  10. Presence, of their 8 studio albums. Achilles Last Stand is a 10. Nobody's Fault But Mine an 8, Tea For One a 7 and all the rest 6's. From a LZ album there should be mostly 9's and 10's imo. Second to last is Physical Grafiti. All of my absolute least favorite songs from their 8 studio albums are on PG: The Rover, Night Flight and Sick Again. That drops it down. Third to last is hard to say because the top 6 I like about equally. I LOVE In Through The Out Door. I have a bit of a problem with Carouselambra but all the rest are FANTASTIC.
  11. Watching Celebration Day in theater. Oh My God what a wonderful experience that was. It made me think of all the times I listened to Led Zeppelin and what got me into them in the first place. I cried I was so touched by it. It was the closest i'll ever get to seeing them in concert.
  12. Physical Graffiti. To me PG and Presence are their two weakest. Presence is their weakest because Achilles and NFBM are their only really great songs. Tea For One is good but it drags a bit. The other songs are eh. As far as Physical Graffiti, it's a mixed batch with some decent songs (Especially Trampled Underfoot, In My Time of Dying and Black Country Woman) and several not so good songs (Mainly talking The Rover, Night Flight and Sick Again). Physical Graffiti imo has the two worst Led Zeppelin songs, Night Flight and The Rover but the other good to great songs make up for it. Neithe
  13. Boxed Set 1. The whole thing 'cause my dad bought the thing when I was a kid and would play it often. Most memorable songs (some he would skip) were Whole Lotta Love, Heartbreaker, Ramble On, Communication Breakdown, What is and What Should Never Be (he loved playing this one because of the use of stereo), Black Dog, Misty Mountain Hop, Dancing Days, Stairway to Heaven those songs in particular really turned me on to Led Zeppelin. I distinctly remember hearing each when I was a kid/early teen.
  14. It's one of my favorites but not for all the reasons the TC said. I don't care for Carouselambra. To me it is annoying and repetitive. I love all the rest of the songs though. Even the underrated South Bound Suarez which is a very solid Led Zeppelin Track that's better than any of the comparable "lesser" songs from Physical Graffiti and Presence. Lyrically Fool in the Rain is my favorite Led Zeppelin song. How can you beat lines like "Well there's a light in your eyes that keeps shining/ like a star that can't wait for the night"? And bonzo - that drum beat - is legendary. All My Love
  15. The Rover Out on the Tiles Carouselambra Your Time is Gonna Come Sick Again Hots on For Nowhere Darlene (no order)
  16. I've always thought ITTOD was underrated. I LOVE Fool in the Rain, All of My Love and I'm Gonna Crawl. I really like In the Evening, Southbound Suarez and Hot Dog. Carouselambra... that one is ok but just doesn't have a timeless sound to it. The keyboards are annoying and repetitive and It sounds like its stuck in 1978. I wish Wearing and Tearing would've been on the album in its stead. Its unfortunate that they didn't play one song from this album on Celebration Day. I thought for sure they'd at least have In the Evening. Every other album was covered.
  17. It's a good album, but my least favorite of the 8. Achilles is spectacular. Nobody's Fault But Mine is superb. Tea For One is touching. The rest are alright. The drunker I am the more I like the other tracks.
  18. I saw it a week ago at the Belcourt theater here in Nashville, TN. It was only playing that night. I would say the theater was at 60% capacity. A lot of people for a Tuesday night but definitely not sold out. I had seen videos on youtube of the show long before, as well as a preview clip of black dog (I guess taken from a sound check) and from what I saw before the movie I didn't expect too much. Good but not great. The movie itself is fantastic. The sound quality, the close ups on stage were all great. They all played almost perfectly for their age and It really moved me. I was b
  19. Achilles Last Stand (Presence) In My Time Of Dying (Physical Graffiti) How Many More Times (Led Zeppelin) Kashmir (Physical Graffiti) In The Light (Physical Graffiti) Tea For One (Presence) Carouselambra (In Through the Out Door)
  20. The 90's wave of a rock was a refreshing wave that swept away the horrible glam metal scene from the 80's. In the 90's I was a kid and have very good memories. I was too young to appreciate what are now my favorite 90's bands - Nirvana & Alice in Chains - but once I re-discovered the grunge movement when I was in college I loved it. Nirvana's my second favorite band, behind Led Zeppelin. Unfortunately I was 9 when Kurt killed himself so I totally missed the Nirvanamania. Since then rock (at least mainstream rock) has deteriorated more and more. For decades rock music came in waves, i
  21. lol i just plain couldn't understand him. not easy to sing "jesus". sounds like "oh my jeeeee-yeahhhhhh" then he goes something like "oh my G! I! O! it's got to be, it's got to be my jeeeee-yeaahh." lol good stuff
  22. untitled side 2 is fav physical graffiti side 1 is least fav (can't stand the rover, don't care much for custard pie though I do love IMTOD. but there's songs i love on every side) i've only ever had led zeppelin albums on cd so sometimes i forget about "sides" of old records.
