My favourite Led Zeppelin album is Houses Of The Holy.

There's just no other Zeppelin album for me which reaches the diversity and cohesiveness HOTH has at the same time. The pre HOTH albums don't beat it in the former aspect and the albums after HOTH can't reach its standards in the latter aspect. 

It's really incredibly diverse: you've got a typical fantasy-inspired song with Over The Hills And Far Away, there are field trips into different genres like reggae (D'yer Mak'er) or rap (The Crunge - this has always reminded me of rap at least) and also atmosphere-wise there's something of everything: eerie (No Quarter), up-beat and jaunty (D'yer Mak'er), melancholic and epic (The Rain Song), cool (The Crunge),...

Additionally, I had a strange situation involving HOTH a few weeks ago: on a class trip I had bought a copy of it in a record store and afterwards, a teacher came to me and wanted to know which records I had bought. So I showed him HOTH and not only didn't he know neither Houses Of The Holy nor Led Zeppelin, he also frowned, made a face and when he gave it back to me he asked me whether this is the right music for me to listen to. I was really confused why he seemed to have a problem with this album then after a while, it dawned on me that it must have been the cover.... Yay, my teacher thinks I'm listening to porn music! paul-mccartney-facepalm_gifahdn_paul_01a-hard-days-night-paul-10

Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's

But, @Martha,

Led Zeppelin is porn music ahdn_george_06

I mean, seriously. It almost gets me jazzed up, and I'm purely guitarsexual. a-hard-days-night-george-10

At the moment, I think HOTH is my favourite as well... though that may just be because 'The Rain Song' has been stuck in my head all day.

The 1970's was a different time, naked children were an image of innocence, not pedophilia. We've literally lost that innocence now.

HOTH is my favorite as well. I love all of the songs that @Martha mentioned in terms of diversity, but The Ocean stands out to me as well because it sounds most similar to their hard rocking earlier stuff, which remains on HOTH, but is less prevelent.

If "HOTH", the track, had appeared on HOTH, would that have made the album worse?

What about "The Rover" or the others left over till PG?

I don't think they'd have made it worse... I dunno. I wouldn't have minded 'Houses Of The Holy', the song, on Houses Of The Holy, the album.

I have my parents to thank for my love of both the Beatles and Led Zep. I'm only 31 (32 next month) but I listen to music from my parents era rather than my own, except for the likes of Oasis,U2 and the Stone Roses,who are all brilliant. Oasis are a particular favourite of mine, and they also love the Beatles (Liam Gallagher even named his son Lennon).But back on track.  Led Zeppelin are amazing, enough said

As I happened in here, Jimmy Page and the Black Crowes' live version of 'Ten Years Gone' came on Silly Dad's Led Zeppelin Pandora radio station... ahdn_george_06

Anyway, yeah, it's been documented how much I love Led Zeppelin, and as I have nothing else to say at the moment I'll show myself out...

A fellow Oasis and Roses fan? Am I to guess you're also a northerner like me? The Stone Roses is my favourite album, and Definitely Maybe/What's The Story are also excellent albums. Cigarettes And Alcohol is my favourite Oasis song, and Sally Cinnamon my favourite Roses song. I saw the Roses live last year, and it was one of the best nights of my life.

To justify this post's relevance, glad to see Ten Years Gone getting some love. Such a great song.

Now that this thread has been revived I remembered that I wanted to share this some time ago already:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v.....LEUSn8y9TI

I know it's not exactly Led Zeppelin but, hell, Jimmy is just too adorable not to share it.ahdn_george_08And Link Wray is also the one who played George's audition song Raunchy, isn't he?

No, that's "Rumble" by Link Wray you're thinking of - the so-called "first heavy metal song". Bill Justis did "Raunchy".

*I think you mean revived? a-hard-days-night-ringo-8ahdn_george_06

I just saw that recently as well -- it's from It Might Get Loud, which I keep thinking I need to watch.

It is very adorable. a-hard-days-night-george-9 I love to see One Of The Gods just being another one of us crazy fans, I love his enthusiasm for the music, but most of all I love how absolutely awful he is at air guitar. ahdn_ringo_09 You can see him fiddling with stuff for the first sixty seconds or so to keep his hands from misbehaving and then finally he gives in to the overpowering urge to air-guitar and... yes. I empathise. a-hard-days-night-paul-7 heart

Yes mate, I'm a northerner, from Liverpool. I love the Stone Roses album,and the 2 Oasis ones you mention. I've never seen the Roses live unfortunately. I imagine it must have been amazing. I saw Oasis live though,at Maine Road (think it was '96 but I could be wrong). A lot of Oasis songs sound like the Beatles,there's a definite influence there. 

 

I always remember an interview Liam Gallagher gave. This is a snippet of it as I remember it:

 

Reporter: "What would you say to John Lennon if he was here now,or what would you like to ask him"?

Liam: "Nothing"

Reporter: "Nothing, really? Why"

Liam: "Because I wouldn't know how to stop, and I'd probably end up licking his face, and no one wants to see that. I love his music, and I get a lot from it"

 

Classic Liam. One of the best interviewees ever in my opinion. I recommend his new solo album if you haven't already got it. Just brilliant

Time for a new top ten, methinks. In no particular order:

The Rain Song
The Battle Of Evermore
Ten Years Gone
Over The Hills And Far Away
Ramble On
Stairway To Heaven (yes, it still does it for me)
Thank You
Immigrant Song
No Quarter
All My Love

...SAY IT WITH ME ALL TOGETHER NOW: damn, ten isn't enough! a-hard-days-night-paul-3  

The only things I'd change are... hmm... a-hard-days-night-paul-7 I'd add about a dozen more songs I guess. ahdn_paul_01

Maybe I'd replace 'Stairway To Heaven', 'Thank You', and 'All My Love' with 'That's The Way', 'The Rover', and 'The Ocean'.

But once again...

You'd never believe how much fun it is to play Over The Hills And Far Away on an SG. I'm getting all sorts of stuff out of my system today.

Also this is probably the best intro to a music head doco I've seen in a long time:
