Votes don't count unless you write a sentence or two about the album.

If there's an early Led Zeppelin album to make me care then it's IV, but I still can't get over the boring folk ****. But the rock songs are 11/10 more often than not. Will rate after listening to it again.

For me, this is a 10/10 album.

Stairway to Heaven might be a little overrated, but I love it.

Black Dog
Rock & Roll
Battle of Evermore
When the Levee Breaks

This is a flawless record.

I am going to listen to it, on CD, right now.

I want to like "The Battle of Evermore", but it just sounds silly to me. Robert Plant is trying too hard to sell a low key song and it trivializes the song.

Completely flawless start to finish.

When the Levee Breaks has the best hard rock drumbeat ever drummed

Unassailable

That meme is appropriate to the poster.

Oh and the last couple minutes of awesomeness do not detract from the tedium of the rest of "Stairway to Heaven".

Oh ****, I forgot what song "Going to California" was. I used to want to skip this song desperately when it would come on the radio and **** nasty do I want to do the same right now.
