Ja, Achille's Last Stand is their best song but their album arrangement shortcomings are very obvious on Presence. Weird how they can have a coherent flow to their songs when they perform while their studio albums are arranged like AI-generated compilations.

I suppose there's truth to this. Other bands do cohesion and flow within track sequencing much better than Zeppelin often did. I wouldn't go so far as to say the sequencing is so bad that the albums are 'terrible' or liken the sequencing to 'AI-generation', but I see your point. Most of their albums, sequencing aside, are collections of great songs (except for ITTOD).

More like half their songs are terrible cause they don't have realistic understandings of what they're good at. Like Robert Plant is a god tier rock singer with a lot of personality but can't emote to save his life and yet they still give him songs that rely on him expressing emotion and not belting out a rock anthem.

When I read the words it told me, it made me sad sad sad

I guess I've never thought about Zeppelin's abilities or inabilities at producing songs that convey emotion. As a whole, their music did most of the emoting to my ears so Plant's voice didn't really have to carry it those extra yards. That said, Daltrey/Morrison/Lennon, etc. were much better at emoting through voice, I'll agree there.

Yeah, Morrison and Lennon were better in that sense, but not Daltrey imo

My best vote goes to Physical Graffiti. It would be the one I would take to a desert island if I could only take one. It has a lot of variety but sometimes I think I overrate it because it came on the heels of the inferior Houses Of The Holy.

I'll check that dictionary, but in the meantime I'm impressed - as is everyone else in the world - by your eloquence, obvious accomplishments and success, and the evidence of your blazingly high intelligence.
