5.0 out of 5 stars Zep's best and the most underrated rock album ever, April 3, 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Presence (Audio CD)
Jimmy Page has repeatedly said on many interviews over the years that that he was very fond of Presence, the seventh studio release from Led Zeppelin. He was especially pleased with the intricate guitar work; the layering of guitars on Achilles Last Stand where as many as twelve guitars are playing at once. Jimmy likes Presence very much and Jimmy is right.
Led Zeppelin's Presence does not attain the commercial notarity as the fourth album or Physical Grafitti, but perhaps better than any Zeppelin release crystalizes what makes this band so incredible. Presence is tight, creative, instense, emotional, and thoughtful. It is the kind of album that a younger, raw Led Zeppelin could not have recorded. While it packs just as much punch as Zep II or the fourth album, it is deeper and more complicated than any other release. Any good garage band can muster up a cover version of Rock and Roll, Ramble On, or even Whole Lotta Love, but have them try to play Achilles Last Stand or Hots on For Nowhere and they will likely run for cover.
While Zep has always played the blues as good or if not better than any rock and roll band, Tea For One may be their best blues song ever.
John Lennon said "give peace a chance." This long time Zep fan says the same thing about Presence. Give it a chance. Give it time. Some albums are like fine wine. They get better over time and mature with age. Presence does this. It is a superb album.
In June 1977 I saw Noboby's Fault But Mine performed live and it completely blew away the crowd of 70,000. Presence, more so than any Zep album blows me away to this very day.
