TileThumper Posted May 30, 2009 Share Posted May 30, 2009 All albums radiate a particular picture or vibe when played, especially Led Zeppelin. Here's what I see in my mind's eye when I drop the needle on these masterpieces: *Led Zeppelin: A band on the prowl, a black & white color overall. *Led Zeppelin II: A warm golden red atmosphere breaking through a clever mist. *Led Zeppelin III: A snowy trek that ends up in a pungent green forest. *--IV--: A purple veil enveloping instruments at their prime tones. *Houses of the Holy: A golden epic interlaced with cozy bursts of orange. *Physical Graffiti: A unit of 4, wise to the street sleaze of cities such as New York, & some sort of industrial feel. (Zep's album covers affect my view of the albums' sounds). Evolving ever further yet pounding out young folk medleys one last time... *Presence: A pain-killer haze of perfection! Very American feeling...stumbling out onto the streets from a smoky bar. *In Through the Out Door: A breathtaking glance into where the sound would've gone in the next decade to come. ~A fully oiled production in a brown paper bag~ *Coda: A barn full of mixed paintings. A good bye & hello to the cuts that didn't make it & a drop of the jaw to the band who added even more to their repertoire with grungy punk takes that some didn't know existed!
