Atlas Shrugged Posted January 18, 2008 Share Posted January 18, 2008 Walking Into Clarksdale, what a ridiculously good song! For me, this shows that these 2 can still (at least 10 yrs. ago) write murderous music. It gets you immediately, Page's tone, it engages you right away. The riff is ominous, and you feel cool just listening to it. The verses are loose, and very groovy. Those twangy chords in the slow sections are a great example of Page going to strange musical places. Plant is singing like he has a unique story to tell, and he sounds like it is crucial that he gets it across. Love it! The guitar solo is great, a 2 parter! The way it starts off like his strings are all dried out, sounds so raw and cool. Then the acid rock approach on the second part is just magnificent. I think Page was really on his game for this track. The train sounds he made are great fun. They both rock like young swinging men on this.
