Biography

On his Nonesuch debut, lullaby and… The Ceaseless Roar, singer/songwriter Robert Plant bookends an album of brilliantly realized original material with two versions of the haunting bluegrass tune “Little Maggie,” popularized in the mid-’40s by the Stanley Brothers. In the Stanley Brothers’ hands, the song is mournful yet stoic as the narrator vows to leave for ... Read more in Amazon's Robert Plant Store

4.0 out of 5 stars CLASSIC PLANT June 12, 2005
By G. YEO
Format:Audio CD
As some reviewers put here - Pictures At Eleven IS arguably Plant's best album. Somewhat forgotten after more than 20 years, the production still sounds crisp and the band is tight. Many of the songs were co-written with Robbie Blunt, who turned out to be an excellent and distinctive guitarist in his own right - with a sound pleasing to Zep and Page fans.

What did Plant do right here? Well, he went for a solo sound that didn't try too hard to break new musical ground ("pretentious" as one reviewer puts it here). He put out a mature somewhat progressive AOR album, where different styles and arrangements come into play with each track.

"Like I've Never Been Gone" and "Moonlight In Samosa" are classic Plant tracks and highlight his ballad skills. I've always felt that "Like I've Never Been Gone" was the successor to "Since I've Been Loving You" - listen to it and you'll know what I mean.

"Slow Dancer" sees Plant recalling Kashmir and hammering it home while "Worse Than Detroit" is classic blues rock with some Zep nuances. Both of these could have easily been Zeppelin tracks from another time and place, giving them some special resonance.

"Pledge Pin" is another interesting Plant track which features a great sax solo. Driving this album is its excellent rhythm section, which never lets up.

Worth getting if you're curious about Plant's solo work, like Zep, and want to hear what might've been - had Plant kept the path of the blues. This is the closest tangent from Zep that exists, besides The Firm's "Mean Business" album with Jimmy Page. In subsequent albums, Plant would move further away from his rock and blues roots into synth territory.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good group of songs February 4, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Pictures at Eleven is a pleasing debut solo album from Robert Plant. All eight of the tracks are listenable and have something to offer. The material is mostly in a straightforward rock musical direction. Also, two of the eight tunes are ballads--"Moonlight in Samosa" and "Like I've Never Been Gone." This release features skilled musicianship, good songwriting, and a taut production. Plant does a nice job with the vocals, too. I also find Robbie Blunt to be a talented guitarist. The drum duties are handled by Phil Collins and Cozy Powell--Collins performs on six songs, while Powell plays on two of the others. Keyboards (nicely played by Jezz Woodroffe) are also used sparingly on seven of the eight tracks; they add a light, attractive seasoning that enhances the material. The tunes that I like the most are "Moonlight in Samosa," "Slow Dancer," and "Fat Lip." The ballad "Moonlight in Samosa" is a charming, well-written song that features really good guitar work from Blunt. The gratifying and atmospheric "Slow Dancer" sounds somewhat different from the rest of the album--it's a smooth, interesting straight-ahead rocker (almost eight minutes long) that sports a progressive edge and exotic-sounding keyboard work. Powell's drumming on "Slow Dancer" is prominent, tight, and forceful. I also like the serene and catchy "Fat Lip." "Pledge Pin" is another likeable straightforward rocker that contains some nice saxophone playing. The CD insert doesn't include the song lyrics. The disc is just over 42 minutes in duration. Pictures at Eleven is enjoyable, consistent, and energetic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! February 18, 2000
By Diman
Format:Audio CD
This is Robert Plant's first solo work and maybe it's his best post-Zep effort. I love every song on this album as much as any Led Zep song. Plant' vocals are superb and every song is written and performed so perfectly that you'll never get tired of this music. I even can't mention any highlights of the album because the whole album is a big highlight :)

On PICTURES AT ELEVEN, Robert Plant's first solo album, he picks up where his former band's last one, IN THROUGH THE OUT DOOR, left off, showing that when drummer John Bonham died in an alcohol-related choking incident in 1980, a lot of work remained unfinished. This album successfully takes the classic Zeppelin sound and style to the next level, and what you get here is where Zeppelin might have gone had Bonham lived. As a result, this CD provides comfort to Zeppelin fans brooding over the demise of their favorite band.

5.0 out of 5 stars Plant's solo debut November 9, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Robert Plant's first solo effort after Led Zeppelin's end found him pulling from the past and pushing into the future. Working with Robbie Blunt, Plant is able to build his own unique style with a smooth, crisp vocal performance on many of the tracks of this CD. "Burning Down One Side" starts off the disc and it is the most Zeppelinesque, along with "Slow Dancer", in my mind. Plant pulls on his vocal chords in these tracks with the old Zeppelin sound reminsicent of some of the Physical Graffitti work. Plant and Blunt stand on their own though whith "Moonlight in Samosa" and "Fat Lip" - two songs that flow as though there is no clock in the room. You can't help but just get caught up in the smoothness of those tracks. The same can be said of "Far Post" which is a bonus track on the CD. If you loved Zeppelin you can't go wrong with this first Plant solo disc. The only thing I will say is don't expect the Jimmy Page solos because Blunt is a different type of musician but a quality one none the less. Also, the arrangements are similar to Zeppelin but definitely not Zeppelin. Plant has done work following this disc that is good and worthy of excellent review but to me this is his best because he needed to grab people after leaving Zeppelin. He did just that because it proves he is by himself more than just a long-haired god to the ladies - he is what many of us knew all along - a unique voice with a stylistic flair for combining his past to build his future.
