  • And now for more important matters...

    Enough of this crap about economics and the First Amendment. Which Led Zeppelin album was the best, and why? I've never been able to decide, though I've ruled out Houses of the Holy, Presence, In Through The Out Door and, obviously, Coda. We're not counting live albums, BBC recordings or weird limited-edition thingies here, just the 8 albums listed.

    LZ1, personally.

    Presence has the best opening 20 seconds, though. Triffic bassline. Downhill after that.

      Yes, Presence has Achilles Last Stand, and...Royal Orleans is fun, and...then it's basically got nothing. Still, HotH is my least favorite album of theirs, even though I like half the songs on it. The overall vibe is simply weird to my ear. I think I'm leaning towards Physical Graffiti. It would have been II, easily, except for Moby Dick. That song is the musical equivalent of coitus interruptus.

        i'm really torn between 1, 2 and 3. if you asked me this question on three different days i would probably give three different answers. today i'm going to plump for 2.

            Even with the Cadillac commercial and Stairway to Heaven's overexposure, IV is a strong contender. Love that bleeding harmonica on When the Levee Breaks!

              my opinion about iv is somewhat controversial with zeppelin fans, but i'd put it 5th or 6th if i had to make a list...

                For me, I has my favorite song but IV has better songs.

                      although i would probably put in through the out door below iv, 6th or 7th...

                          What is Led Zeppelin? A rock band?

                          Okay I looked it up. It is. Their most famous song is a song called Stairway to Heaven. There's an O'Jays song by that name It's different than this one though.

                          The O'Jays one is a classic though:

                            I saw Speer had posted in the Zep thread and I though "oh, no. Here we go. 'It's not an R&B act so they must be ****ing shyte'"

                            Not far off.

                              Though funnily enough, by the original style of R&B....
