Biography

Led Zeppelin was the definitive heavy metal band. It wasn't just their crushingly loud interpretation of the blues -- it was how they incorporated mythology, mysticism, and a variety of other genres (most notably world music and British folk) -- into their sound. Led Zeppelin had mystique. They rarely gave interviews, since the music press detested the band. Consequently, the only ... Read more in Amazon's Led Zeppelin Store

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Led Zeppelin II is an album of Jimmy Page riffs so huge, and John Paul Jones/John Bonham rhythms so deep, that the heavy metal genre this classic helped create has tried for decades to catch up, mostly without success. And no wonder: since II catches the band before they'd headed too far into their ridiculous medieval fancies, this might be as good as Zep would ever be. Regardless, the thunderous "Whole Lotta Love," a Top 5 hit, and "Bring It on Home" are very nearly as fierce and twisted as British white blues would ever get. --David Cantwell

Product Description

Recorded while the band was touring America for the first time, II eschewed songwriting finesse for bludgeoning riffs, and thus set the standard for all heavy metal bands to follow. Includes Whole Lotta Love; Heartbreaker; Moby Dick; What Is and What Should Never Be , and more. From 1969.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Juggernaut Classic!!! March 21, 2008
Format:Audio CD
This album is a prime example of why Bonham, Jones, Page, & Plant are legends in the Rock & Roll industry. It has everything a R & R fan could possibly want. A bluesy feel, tight Guitar riffs, solos from the soul, well constructed songs, layers of music, & passionate vocals. For me the true cohesion comes from the rythym section. Bonham's drums drives the band ever forward while JPJones is ethereal on the keyboards & perfect on the bass Guitar. There are no duds on this their Sophmore album.

These are my seven favorites in no particular order. "Heartbreaker," opens with a classic riff. The midsection flows to an improvisational section with a fine Guitar solo. Here the lyrics & music blend easily. I have always liked this one more than the more publized "Whole Lotta Love." "Moby Dick," is a fine instrumental with Bonham's drum midsection carrying it. "Living Loving Maid," is often paired in direct succession with "Heartbreaker." It's an upbeat rocker with a memorable riff & a contagious melody. "The Lemon Song," has one great bass line as JPJones moves smoothly throughout as the crescendo than picks up & takes flight. "What Is And What Should Never Be," is a very different type of song that is hard to classify. I have been told by musicians that this is one of the harder Zeppelin songs to learn. Here the interesting lyrics play as a melodic counterpoint to Plant's vocals. "Ramble On," is the driving other side of the latter song representing moving on from the angst of love. This is one of the most underated of Led Zeppelin's songs. "Thank You," clearly is the bands best ballad until "In Through The Outdoor's All My Love." This one is smooth & brings out the romantic in the listener. This is one of their three best albums. Buy it, you won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best Led Zeppelin album April 13, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
After toiling the summer of my 14th year, I finally saved enough money to buy my first turntable (an $88 Pioneer which, I am pleased to say, I still own and, 23 years later, it runs like a champ). Soon thereafter, I began assembling my record collection. Led Zeppelin II was my first purchase. Over time, I bought all the Led Zep albums, and listened to them all until the vinyl was pretty well worn out. However, Led Zep II always remained my favorite Led Zep album. Special memories of Led Zep II include the time that I invited a special young lady over to my house and, to impress her (dumb, I know), I cranked up Whole Lotta Love for the guitar jam following the relatively quiet stuff with the violin bows, only to have most of the speaker componentry of my father's hand built Heathkit speakers explode into a useless, spasmodic pile of writhing, twitching cardboard-like material and coils. It took me about four months to save enough pesos to buy a new pair of speakers.
Anyway, on to something Amazon readers might find useful:
Led Zep II is a classic rock and roll album, but what makes it particularly good is the way each song works so well with the songs around it. I've noticed other reviewers have made similar comments. You could not pull this material and drop it into a "Greatest Hits" album and have it work. Imagine going from Whole Lotta Love, straight into Stairway to Heaven! No way! Another key is to have the right stereo equipment. It is my opinion that stereo equipment is designed to complement the music of the day. Hence, one would be best served to find a vintage amplifier or receiver to play this music. You don't want some amplifier-on-a-chip setup. Also, milquetoast speakers are out.

5.0 out of 5 stars The New Led Zeppelin Remasters, Round Two June 3, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It's 2014, and time for a new round of re-masters of the Led Zeppelin catalog by Jimmy Page. If you don't own this album or have been meaning to replace your old, scratched-up copy, now's the perfect time. I'm replacing an old, scratched-up copy. I don't imagine anyone looking into this is new to Zeppelin, so you probably already know that their second album was an incredible, genius follow-up to their debut, continuing the bluesy hard rock with an improvisational bent they'd offered on Zeppelin I. The best-known songs from this release are “Whole Lotta Love,” “Living Loving Maid (She's Just a Woman),” and “Ramble On.” It also has the well-loved “Moby Dick” among the other classic tracks.

As I said, though, now is a good time to pick this up because the deluxe edition pricing is about the same price as a regular CD, but you get a bonus disc and the deluxe packaging. The bonus disc for II will appeal more to the Zeppelin aficionados than the casual classic rock radio fan. It has several rough cuts from the studio and a couple of backing tracks that are completely cool to a Zep fanatic, but might be unappealing to people who mainly like the band's hit songs. Personally, I love hearing earlier incarnations of songs, early demo versions, and alternate takes that weren't used just to hear all of the ideas that went into the finished track that ended up on the album.

However, the one gem among these miscellaneous extras is the previously unheard instrumental, “La La.” I won't claim it's a new Zeppelin classic, but it's a definite treat to hear this obviously very early version of a Led Zeppelin tune. The first half has a happy, Partridge Family kind of vibe, but a little over two minutes in, it begins to sound like the familiar blues rock of the first couple albums.
