The electric stuff has blown from the beginning, especially Stairway to Heaven.

Well, I loved the first LZ album when it came out. Liked most of the second, and couple of songs on the third, and not much after that. I thought they became more and more pretentious and silly as time went on. I mean, Gollum stole my girl away to Mordor? C’mon. Eventually they epitomized everything that went wrong with rock music in the 70s that led to the whole punk/new wave movement.

None the less, Jimmy Page is still a great guitar player.

I heard Putin likes Led Zeppelin.

I also heard that his air assault into the Crimea was accompanied by loud speakers blaring Rock and Roll from their Mi28, ala the 1st Cav.

They copy everything...

Actually "In Through The Out Door" was their finest album in my opinion. So they actually got better with age.

Had they not broken up, they would have had some pretty astounding albums during the 1980s. Robert Plant's "Big Log" is an indication of where they were headed musically. Probably the best song of the entire 1980s right there.

Led Zeppelin ROCKS, always has, always will. They are in the Pantheon of henkster’s all time great bands with The Who, The Stones, the Beatles, Pink Floyd and Yes.

But that’s just me.

Saw them in person in the early 70’s, great show but not my favorite band of that era. The Who, Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, Creedence Clearwater, Canned Heat, all were better live than LZ.

I was meaning more on how they do now as old rockers. the stones I saw last was a superbowl show Jagger’s still got the energy and Richards was still standing somehow. the remains of the who at another s.b. stunk. Plant and Page and Jones amazed me in this.

I saw LZ in '76 and loved em.

Although Plant's voice is a little worse for wear they sound better here.

Quick impressions from randomly going through it.

The band is tight, even though they try to re-create the freeflowing jam of the 70’s that they did back then. Deep Purple, Uriah Heep and Sabbath did the same. It was what they were all known for

All members are playing to support each other instead of going off on tedious crap to show how wonderful they are.

While I generally dislike Robert Plant as one of the more pretentious vocalists of that era, he did seem in control and working to make it a band thing instead of a Robert thing with the band supporting him.

Jimmy Page is and always was a Great. He shows it here.

One note of interest. Look at early pics of him, Blackmore and Iommi. They all had very similar faces/hairstyles and body types way back then. Probably the three greatest Rock guitarists of the era were damn near triplets.

Once again. Random thoughts. Definitely worth going through again for a listen. Much better than “The Song Remains the Same.”

when you use a superlative to describe any class or group pejoritively, you have laid down the classic RED HERRING.

They sounded quite a bit better when I saw them in 1997. This performance actually saddens me a little because to me they are clearly off their game and it's clearly an age thing. Even so, they still sound good, the underlying music is still great, and it's a blast to see them do their thing.

They are all getting old, like me and I doubt I would pay to see any of them live. Rather have the memories of prime time. Even BB King plays sitting down nowadays, he's in his 80's.
Another band that should have stayed retired: CCNY.
Loudest band I think was Blue Cheer, early 70's - 48 Marshall amps stacked behind them, we were up front.

I graduated high school in 1977. IMHO MTV killed music. With the advent of the music video, any dirtbag with a camcorder became an”artist.” And it all became ego-driven to be the “entertainer-vocalist.” So who is the guitarist for Mariah Carey? Who played drums for Britney Spears? MTV killed music by killing the great bands. No great bands, no great music.

OK, old fart rant over. You damn kids get off my lawn. Where’s my World’s Fair spoon?

I agree. MTV turned things to the visual and away from the music. Watch Heehaw sometime. Those were some ugly individuals but they could sing and play. Now you have to be a world class model before anyone will even listen to you.

Well, that too. But it was also the giant stage shows, 20 minute meandering guitar solos, pretentious lyrics etc. Punk/new wave got back to bands with simple or no stage show playing 3 minute songs. It was about bringing back the earlier energy and simplicity and the feeling that anyone could do it that seemed to be lost in the era of stadium rock.

The first rock concert I ever went to was Blue Cheer opening for The Who in a medium sized auditorium. I couldn’t believe how loud Blue Cheer was, but I think The Who was even louder. At least they had more Marshall stacks. Of course once it gets up over 130db it’s hard to tell.

Unfair comparison. You'd have to wait until Led Zep play Superbawl XXXVI to compare Superbawl halftime shows.
