By far my most under-appreciated work from the great band. This one is where they explore other possibilites. "Gallows Pole" is a truly amazing work, where Page multi-tracks banjos, mandolins, and acoustic guitars for a wild adventure. This is one you have to listen to over and over to really understand. Everytime I listen to it, I find some new little oddity that makes this me want to listen to it again. If you prefer the blues/rock that Zeppelin set down with I and II, this might not be for you. If you have an open mind and are willing to explore new pastures, then this is your album.

Excellent stuff. In my opinion, Led Zeppelin's most diverse album and definitely a nice introduction to the band. Starts off nice and agressive with "Immigrant Song". I've totally forgotten how "Friends" and "Celebration Day" go, so I won't say anything about them but I remember them being pretty darn cool. "Since I've Been Loving You" is definitely one of Led Zeppelin's best blues numbers. "Out on the Tiles" rocks, pure and simple. "Gallows Pole" starts off nice and easy and builds up to a frenzy. "Tangerine" is a great, sad love song. More nice acoustic folky-type stuff on "That's the Way". And the "Bron-Y-Aur Stomp" is probably the best acoustic rocker ever. The twisted slide blues "Hats Off to (Roy) Harper" where the vocals have absolutely nothing to do with the guitar, amazingly, as one of my friends put it, closes out the album. Classic.

The ever changing kings of the british rock scene, changed up their style a little on this record. That does not mean that it isn't as good as their previous two. As a matter of fact its just as good, but a little different, and a bit more melodic.
