Zeppelin Had There Hots On For Everywhere,
This review is from: Presence (Audio CD)
Presence is my favorite Led Zeppelin album, but like many other hard core Led Zeppelin fans, it did not start out like that. Many people choose the first albums like I, II, III, and IV. Also Physical Graffitti. But they grow to like the more unfamous Led Zeppelin material. In Presence, Led Zeppelin seems to me to have a bit of a different style. Achilles Last Stand is pretty much everyone's favorite track, but not mine. Despite the great guitar and drums in that song, my favorite by far is Hots On For Nowhere. Many people listen to the first 30 seconds and don't like it, but if you listen to the whole song i gauruntee you'll love it. It's a little bluesy with great vocals. Kind of a mean song of Robert Plant talking about his friends but Jimmy Page plays excellent guitar in it. Other songs like Tea For One and Nobody's Fault But Mine are sure to make you happy. Presence is not sold in many stores and not a whole lot of people know about it unless they are huge Zeppelin fans. This angered me because I think that Presence is a great album and every song on it is electric and there are no keyboards. Not that i don't like acoustic and keyboards but I think that this for Zeppelin was great. I would reccomend this album to anyone who likes any classic rock.

I totally agree. This one is my favorite but was not at first. A lot of true Zep fans find out later that they like this one best because it isn't the most overplayed and has a lot of interesting parts.

Well Ben, I kind of like the fact that Presence "isn't sold in many stores" and "not a lot of people know about it." To be honest, being a true Zep fan was always a bit like being part of a secret society, you know? That's what makes it so cool...
