When i heard this for the first time i was very confused, its sound was not zeppelin at all, very diffrent but still good. Now i've read other reviews saying this was the weakest of their set but i have to disagree. Normally the albums are full with Jimmy doing riffs, solos and the blues, which everyone loves, but this album is led by John Paul Jones, and there is alot of keyboards and synthesizer stuff, like in Carouselambra, but still i like it. There are some parts which are a bit soft, All My Love, which is more 80s than 70s. But any zep fan should own this album because it has some great bits on.
If your new to zeppelin dont buy it, buy the atlantic ones first because this is really diffrent to thier normal style and might put you off. If you have a few zeppelins already buy it to finish your collection but it is really a Jones/Plant album with John and Jimmy just in the back, a pity because it was there last album and didnt do much on it, lets just hope they do another with stuff from all 3 guys! You'll either give it 4 stars or a 1 star. You pick.
