It's not really a bad order I guess, but it does get weaker at the end of the album. But everything was different in 1970, so who knows what they were thinking. But, I am pretty sure if that CD came out in '06 the fillers would be mixed in with the instant classics.

If this came out in '06, It would also be amazing seeing what Page and crew could do with today's technology. Mm mm good, like Campbells soup.

It'd be interesting to see what Jimmy would come up with production-wise, but I think it's fine as it is. This is how it really should sound, to me anyway.

It's a shame what drugs does to you. I swear on my life I will never get into them because I have seen what it does to so many of my heroes. If Bonham hadn't died they had so many great years ahead of them.

And, for an "un-led-ed" not, think of what Jimi Hendrix could have done if he had lived a full life. That was one sick dude.

I don't think Led Zeppelin had "so many great years ahead of them". I mean, look at how their quality was already getting sketchy. Starting with Presence, and certainly on In Through the Out Door, their albums just didn't compare to the classic Zep albums. It's only reasonable to expect that their albums would have continued in that pattern.

Honestly, albums like Presence and In Through the Outdoor served a greater purpose than any of their classic ones. To many fans, Zeppelin had abandoned what was so great about them. But in reality, they were far better musicians becuase of it. While I'm not stating that being a better musician is paramount to great songwriting, I also feel that had Zeppelin tried to re-create previous acheivements they would have failed miserably. Times change, I guess.This Message Edited On 07.12.06

That's true Bron, but even if they would have failed miserably doing that, it doesn't mean that those albums were necessarily good. There's more than one way to suck. (neither truly sucked, but they're definitely the closest Zep got to it, and In Through the Out Door was definitely no Led Zeppelin III)

So really, regardless of their reasons for putting out albums like that, they would probably never have regained the high quality of their early 70s material.

I do not understand the filler talk. The only so-so song on the album is the last track. The best tracks are more towards the end for me. Tangerine, Gallows, and Bron are some of the best stuff Zeppelin every did.

ZOSO is better but III is still better than anything after Physical Graffiti. Celebration Day has so much energy.

Ther are a few really great tracks on this album (Celebration day, Since i've been loving you, friends, tangerine) but thats really as far as it goes, I have never really seen the appeal of "Immigrant song" what is it that people find so epic about it?

"On a side-note, I?ve always found a certain System of a Down number to sound oddly similar to the string arrangement provided by Jonesy. " Thank god I'm not the only person that noticed that! I pointed that out to my friend the other day I played them at the same time and they are very similar... too similar... plageurism bad... boom same riff as friends... .... .... AND IT WAS JUST THE FIRST TIME AND YOU KNEW YOU WOULD!!!!!!!!!!

This is just an album that you can't live without. The definite Led Zeppelin CD in their catalog.

The first four of the albums i think deserve 5's, but a 4.5 suits this one better, IMO.
