Tie between PG and I. If I had to pick one, I would go with Physical Graffetti too. Not only do I love it, but it also came out exactly a month almost before I was born.

My favorite today is the same as yesterday, the same as last year, the same as ten years ago and the same as twenty years ago. For sheer emotion and raw power, I give you...

I voted for IV but this is a really tough choice to make.

My Top 3 (as of right now) are:

1. IV

2. Houses of the Holy

3. Physical Graffiti

I like Led Zep IV and also In through the Outdoor, I think this album is really underrated, some songs on this albums are the climax of their virtuosity.Hot Dog and SBSAUREZ are two very good songs, some people don't like them, don't know why.IMO, InthrTheoutdoor is one side of Led Zeppelin, because they had many different faces.

As for me I don't like No Quarter,Dazed and confused and In the light.

At this point, I honestly don't have one. It's so tough as there are so many fantastic songs that are my absolute favourites on different albums! I went for IV - it's epic and it's the one that got me hooked in the first place.

I can't choose, it would be like picking a favorite child. How do you pick one over the others? They are all special in their own way and for their own reasons.

Physical Graffiti. Zep IV is a great album, but I just can't listen to it anymore, aside from maybe one or two songs.

All of Led Zeppelin's studio albums were gold record award and were fabulous. If I had to pick I still say and always will that Led Zepp IV defined them and Physical Graffiti was the other album I would rank in the top two. It took 18 months between Houses of the Holy and PG. I remember how we all waited with no patience for the next album to be released and we could not get our hands on it fast enough. I got it on 8 track in the day and when I first heard Tranpled Under Foot and Kashmir I thought, man, are these guys diverse or what? They had managed to mix hard rock with classical and disco both. I even go a local diso bar to play Trampled Under Foot in the same set as one of KC and the Sunshine bands sets. To me PG is two albums worth of brilliance!!!

When Presence came out I remember hearing it the first time played in its entirety by the local station, WCMF in Rochester, NY, without interuption. As much as I love Presence I still think PG is far better, of course you are getting two albums instead of one.

Physical Graffiti.

Arguably, any of the first six studio albums would not be out of place as "the" favourite album with ITTOD and the much maligned(?) Coda also having their place in the Led Zeppelin Pantheon.

For me Physical Graffiti was Led Zeppelin at their peak.

Interesting poll selections.

Mothership was a best of and TSRTS a "live" soundtrack album, kinda strange putting them up as choices as they are not what I would call defining or favourite albums, as good as they are yet their other albums were ignored.

Why were Early Days, Latter Days, BBC Sessions, How The West Was Won, Remasters and Boxed Sets 1 and 2 omitted from the poll ?

It's a very hard choice, but I'd pick Physical Graffiti simply for the diversity of the songs, and there are so many on that album that are personal favourites. My second choice would have been Zep IV, another fantastic flawless album.

Best Guitar work/ JP (TSRTS) Check.

Best Robert wailing (N/Q, TRS, &TSRTS) Got you covered.
