Five Stars isn't enough,
This review is from: Led Zeppelin II (Audio CD)
Just look at my name. You can probably already tell that my review might be a liiiiiiitle useless to you, since Led Zeppelin is my number 1 band of all time and I'm going to of course praise whatever they made. But for this album, you can take my opinion. Why? This is my favorite album from my favorite band, and I have a feeling that for a non-fan of Zeppelin, this album would at least mean a little something to them.
Whole Lotta Love - 10/10 An FM classic rock radio staple, a groundbreaking metal song, and plenty of experimentation. It could take a bit of listening and getting yourself to get used to middle part (featuring orgasmic wails from Robert Plant), but as you listen to it more and more, you find little details in the song that are utterly amazing, and that ultimately adds up to one amazing song.
What is and What Should Never Be - 9/10 A catchy, beautiful chorus and some nice acoustic work. One of the finest moments on the album is when Jimmy Page's guitar jumps from one speaker to the other.
The Lemon Song - 10,000/10 This is probably my favorite Zep song, and therefore one of my favorite songs ever. I'd go on forever about this song. It's just... amazing. Listen to it a few times sometime before you die.
Thank You - 7/10 Probably the least best song, but very good nontheless. It's only problem that it gets a bit corny at times.
Heartbreaker - 11/10 Robert Plant's voice booms, the bassline OWNS, the drums blast. But who are we kidding? Anyone who listens to it knows that Pagey's guitar solo steals the show.
Living Loving Maid (She's Just a Woman) - 9/10 Heartbreaker smoothly rolls into this track and the album just keeps going. It's a good, straightforward rock song.
Moby Dick - 10/10 You hear it and think "Yeah, yeah. Nice guitar riff. This song is alright. I'm feeling it." But then the guitar abruptly stops, and John Bonham drags you into his world. For roughly two minutes, you hear a exhausting drum solo. Too good.
Bring it on Home - 9.5/10 This song would be perfect if it weren't for the not-so-perfect beginning (the song has two different stages) The ending is very choice, though.
Just take my word for it. Led Zeppelin II is a critically acclaimed classic, and I garuntee you'll love at least one fragment of this album.
