Robert Plant -- Nine Lives; [Review]


Recommended Posts

The one member of Led Zeppelin still working steadily, Robert Plant has veered toward and away from the sound of his old band on the albums he has made since 1982, which are complete (plus outtakes and live tracks) in this set. He can still send his voice soaring in Zep-style guitar stomps and electric-Celt power ballads. But abetted by changing collaborators, he has also branched out: to tricky rhythm patterns, to skewed 1950s and '60s remakes to Arab-tinged exotica. Not all his experiments work out, but many do, and even the misfires are better than a career of retreads. (Swan Song/Es Paranza/Rhino. Nine CDs and one DVD. $99.98.) JON PARELES
