    Best Led Zeppelin Album

    For badgeholders only...

    Tough call here. IV has a claim for its obvious epicness. III for its acoustic stuff. II for its balls-to-the-wall blues. I because it was so raw and loud. Presence because all of those monster guitar parts were recorded in about 2 weeks. But...

    I've gotta go with Houses. It's just so enjoyable to listen to; I think this is what a band having fun sounds like.

    Im not a music honk by any means at all but I love Led. And IV and Houses of the Holy is a split decision with me.

    Re: Best Led Zeppelin Album

    Led Zeppelin is the best band to ever grace the recording studio. One of the best front men ever. The best guitar player ever. The best Drummer ever. And John Paul Jones who could play any instrument you handed him.
    Best album? Very tough call. So I won't go there.
    Instead I'll go for the most underrated Led Zeppelin song ever.
    "That's the way".

    To anyone who hasn't seen this dvd, its the Holy Grail.

    Agree with every word (and probably share your views on Lebowski, too). I bought this DVD when the music store (remember those?) opened the day it was released and spent the rest of the day in blissful oblivion. It was the same way when I first stumbled across The Song Remains the Same--I wore that VHS tape out so much.

    I assume when you say "best" that you are exempting NKOTB and Hanson from the discussion.

    Re: Best Led Zeppelin Album

    I'm going with III. Not the most commercially popular but still my favorite. Although not their original song, Gallows Pole may be the greatest Zep song of them all.

    Sides 1,2 & 3 of Physical Graffiti. Side 4 I can take or leave.

    Edit: III comes in at a close second. So good.

    Re: Best Led Zeppelin Album

    Physical Graffiti showed the band at its peak in my opinion, both creatively and professionally. It was their last really big album, everything after that seemed to be an afterthought. Just the sheer variety on that album is amazing.

    That being said, I have IV on vinyl and it's an amazing album.

    Re: Best Led Zeppelin Album

    I was a big I and II album guy back in the booze and weed days of the early ‘70s but the song I like to hear today didn’t make the old albums, “Hey, Hey What can I say?”, probably because it’s a ‘70s tune and reminds me of my cheating slut college GF!
