Free is great, but Led Zeppelin wins just for Presence. I've never understood why that isn't considered one of their best. The best and most consistent Zep album in my book.

Free's self titled from '69 utterly destroys Zep's whole career. A perfect harmony of Blues, Soul, and Funk, cut with crushingly heavy bass guitar playing, and sharp guitars that go for atmosphere rather than shredding and wanktastic "look-at-me" speed and technicality, even intentionally leaving in mistakes for what they sonically contribute to the feeling of the tracks.

It's almost Post Punk in its funky, bass-centric and simultaneously uplifting and yet depressive approach. Even the slow and "happy" songs have this gut wrenching heaviness just beneath the surface.

Painfully underrated, and written off by most Free fans (and fans of British Blues in general) for veering away from just straight Blues Rock, and having the balls to be something unique.

Plus, the album cover is groovy.

^ Lowkey admitting that the album is perfect, funky, underrated, and groovy

Imo, they were kept in for their visual contribution.

Tbh, when I think WBB's, I think along the lines of this:

...not Zep or Free. But yeah, mark me down for some Free. Tired of the Zep.

So, have you actually listened to the album, or are you just trying to make me go Chula on you?

Obviously.

You don't need to be brought to Chuladom. You are already there my friend.
