My favourite Led Zeppelin album must be Led Zeppelin II, and Led Zeppelin I on a close second.

I think Led Zeppelin II and I are my favourite's because of the more blues influenced sound.

THIS IS LIKE CHOOSING BETWEEN A FAVORITE CHILD ...

But in the end I went with the fourth album, ya got yer Rock and Roll, yer Battle of Evermore, yer Levee Breaking, yer Sticks (four of 'em), even yer gosh-darned Stairway. Lots o talent in them grooves.

although Physical Graffiti was a THISCLOSE second choice (but that's cheating, as it includes outtakes from other albums--albeit near masterpieces), then Presence, the Houses, then III, yada yada yada...

This was like trying to choose my favorite Beatles album -- it's IMPOSSIBLE!! There isn't a LZ album I don't like! But I voted for IV because it has a wide variety of songs and 5 of the songs are in my top 15 (of LZ songs).

Mothership contains the best out of all their studio albums

So its only natural that Mothership will also contain the best songs

It really shows Zeppelin's wide variety of music, throughout their 12 years of playing

Some great songs not on Mothership:

Good Times, Bad Times, How Many More Times,

What Is and What Should Never Be, Bring It on Home

Tangerine, That's the Way,

Going to California, Misty Mountain Hop

The Rain Song, The Ocean

The Rover, In My Time of Dying, In The Light, Ten Years Gone

For Your Life, Tea For One

Fool in the Rain, I'm Gonna Crawl

Although a compilation album is good for introducing someone to a new type of music, it doesn't contain the original artistic expression that the original studio albums exhibit. Many people would not consider some of the aforementioned songs to be Zeppelin's absolute "best" by themselves. Nevertheless, it is songs like these that provide a context for the masterpieces that found their way onto Mothership, and it is the reason why I consider all of the studio albums to be better than Mothership.

Haven't checked all the others, but IMTOD is definitely on Mothership.

IMTOD is not on the 2 CDs, but Good Times Bad Times is there.

My bad, but that is still beside the point. What makes an album great is its ability to capture the essence of the band at a specified point in time. From all of Led Zeppelin's studio albums, I think that Physical Graffiti has the best songs, but I still consider Presence to be their best album because it establishes an intimate connection between the listeners and the musicians.

I agree with you that Mothership is not the perfect package. I was a bit let down myself when I had it in my hand. And a bit surprised there is not even one acoustic song there.

You're right! :o

I would have bet enormous sums of money that IMTOD was on there--good thing I didn't! In fact, I've just looked at the CDs, seen it's not on the track list, and I STILL think it's on there, if you see what I mean! :slapface:

My apologies, illestkeith.

I know what you mean, it's kind of hard to believe it's not on there, along with The Rain Song.

It really depends on my mood. I love II, IV, HOTH, and PG all the same. I voted for IV because without it, i would never have known who Led Zeppelin was.

I like them all, but lately I've been on a HTWWW kick. I love listening to the live stuff. If I'm sitting in traffic (which usually pisses me off), I'll go to Disc 1, Tracks 8, 9, 10 (their acoustic set) and all is right with the world.

I've also been listening to Page/Plant's "No Quarter" a lot lately. I know that's not Led Zeppelin, but it's a fabulous CD!

:hysterical: good one Stairway, but your mistaken, as I don't have a fav, and didn't vote the poll...(for the same reason you mentioned) -my mood changes with every album. But, it wouldn't be hard to predict your least fav. or Major's-even before the thread was revealed.
