1. The Song Remains The Same:
It took a lot for me to like this song. But it kind of grows on you after a few listens. Robert Plant's vocals are freakin' amazing on this song, going way higher than any woman I know can sing.
2. The Rain Song:
This is the one song on the album that just doesn't work for me. It drags on for way too long, with nothing but strings and some sparse acoustic guitar.
3. Over The Hills And Far Away:
One of my favorites. A nice acoustic start before kicking into high gear in a big way. Nice lyrics, also.
4. The Crunge:
This is another one of those songs that you have to listen to a lot before you really like it. But, I'm starting to. It's really funky and fast, with some nice vocal work. I always laugh at the end when Robert Plant says "Where's that confounded bridge?"
5. Dancing Days:
One of the best songs. A loud, raucous rocker with a killer chorus that I always get stuck in my head.
6. D'yer M'aker:
Ok, I'm sure everyone's heard this one. It really needs no explanation. Great song though, excellent drumwork from John Bonham.
7. No Quarter:
One of my all time favorite Led Zep songs. It's very psychedelic with an irresistably seductive guitar riff. It's odd, but it doesn't sound like it belongs on this record.
8. The Ocean:
Another loud rocker, and another one of my favorite Led Zep songs. I paticularly love the upbeat ending, it sounds rather jazzy to me.
In conclusion, this CD may take a couple of listens before you truly appreciate it, but it's worth your time and your money.
