I'm more of a Led Zeppelin III man, myself...

ED LO on:

In ED ZEPPELIN's opinion:

Houses of the Holy : great album. it's very...bright. good growth from the untitled album.

Did you know that the song "houses of the holy" was supposed to be on that album, but for some reason was pushed back an album?

anyway, I think the first 90 seconds of 'Song remans the same' is an awesome intro to the album. then the transition into the 'rain song' = smooth. The contrast between the two makes the rain song more 'effective'

my favorite deep cut is 'the crunge' and 'no quarter' gets better the more times you listen to it. i learned how to walk basslines listening to the end of 'the ocean'

i think the big thing to notice is how page started getting big into layering multiple guitar lines....

in conclusion. one of their stronger, poppier (i.e. less bluesy) albums

better late than never ever nerver

Thanks to everyone who came out to Tuesday's show. It was a blast. Thanks to the two people who asked for an encore that was promptly cut short by some awesome grunge music blasting over the PA.

I'm playing a solo set tonight on this "Phoning It In" show out of Rhode Island. They call you up and you play a mini-set over the phone. Graham did it a couple of months ago.
