First album of the eponymous group, Led Zeppelin I is a monument in the history of the Rock. Nostalgic of the Yardbirds and this guitarist who played Dazed and Confused with a bow how you say that his name is already? Yes Jimmy Page it''s true, and indeed you could not better fall.
Recorded in October, 1968, taken out in January, 1969, this first album marked its time(period) due to the mixture of the kinds(genres), colored with blues ( You Shook Me), with hard rock (Communication Breakdown) as well as of folk song with very sensual Black Mountain Side. Musically this opus is grand, varying the effects with an incredible ease, riffs shows abilities of a remarkable efficiency and solos allow Jimmy Page to express his talent, its ease as well as its incredible mastery of the guitar. We could not expect from it less on behalf of two ex-musicians of studio accompanied with one of the most famous drummers of the history of the rock and with a singer with a powerful voice.
The stirring battery of John Bonham, the groove bass of John Paul Jones, the crazy guitar about Jimmy Page, the singing of Robert Plant, mix the whole, add some effects of disto, chorus, Wah-Wah and you obtain a masterpiece. We shall find moreover throughout nine pieces, diverse influences: blues and naturally rock groove, oriental, Celtic. This album will make of Led Zeppelin one of first one groups of hard rock as well as a precursor of the heavy metal in particular with heavy chords as demonstrates him the electric guitar on Baby I'' m Gonna Leave You. Bet risky but made a success for this audacious group in the creative genius without limit. Since, they did not stop revolutionize the music, and this constant evolution feels the effects in each of their albums. Led Zeppelin I is only a prelude in the ascent of this mythical group, nine pieces of pure happiness to be listened to without moderation.
