Also commonly known as Zofo or Stairway to Heaven, this album was mysteriously released without any information about the band or its songs on the cover. The concept behind this daring statement was that the music inside would speak for itself, and it did just that in spectacular fashion. Regarded by most people as Led Zeppelin’s masterpiece, this album represents the band’s peak, as it’s simply one of the most perfectly realized albums of all time.

It begins with two superb rockers: “Black Dog,” which is best known for Plant’s a capella vocals, and “Rock ‘n Roll,” a high octane ‘50s styled rocker that features an unstoppable beat, yet another great Page guitar solo, and Bonham’s famous drum solo at its finish.

Meanwhile, the acoustic, Eastern influenced “Battle Of Evermore” is a brilliantly atmospheric song that’s aided by Plant and guest Sandy Denny’s (formerly of Fairport Convention) hypnotic vocal performances, as well as more Lord Of The Rings inspired lyrics.

And what can be said about their ultimate masterpiece, “Stairway To Heaven,” that hasn’t already been said? Simply put, there’s a reason that this song has often been cited as the greatest rock song of all time. Starting with a beautiful, almost classical beginning (that’s clearly inspired by Spirit’s “Taurus”), the song builds and builds until it reaches its crashing crescendo and ultimate denouement.

Continuing, the strong “Misty Mountain Hop” and “Four Sticks” ( are both upbeat rockers before “Going To California” follows with another beautifully understated acoustic folk song.

Finishing with a flourish, “When The Levee Breaks” is a magnificent blues epic (one of the band’s very best) that’s most notable for Bonham’s unbelievable “hammer of the gods” drumming - when he unleashes his titanic drum fill (you know the one) it gives me the chills every single time. The greatest album by arguably rock’s greatest band, this album is a cornerstone of any serious rock collection.




Led Zeppelin Rock n Roll 1973

led zep ripped it off from jerry lee lewis but the thing is they both were under atlantic records haha so i think it was cool if they did a little parody to the original.

Led Zeppelin - When the levee breaks

Of all the Led Zepplin songs, this one is my utmost favourite. I could never listen to this song too many times. & Ironically enough, this was the first song that came to mind when hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans back in 2005,

LED ZEPPELIN - Four Sticks

And to me that is very rare to hear this type of hi-hat pedal playing in a song.That;s why I stated (THAT I HAVE NEVER) heard a song from any group or artist including the other songs of Led Zeppelin, that sounds quite like Four Sticks. And that is why (I think) the song is so unique!
