Product Description

Amazon.ca

Also known as the "rune" album because of the medieval symbols adorning its cover, Led Zeppelin's fourth album, released in 1971, turned them from mere superstars into giant behemoths of the rock world. On tracks like "Black Dog", "Misty Mountain Hop", and "Rock and Roll", the combination of Robert Plant's banshee wails and Jimmy Page's frenetic guitar playing forever altered the stylistic bent of hard rock music. And the foreboding "When the Levee Breaks" demonstrated that Zeppelin could indeed play the blues fairly straight if they so desired. Still, everything here ultimately took a back seat to the album's (and, ultimately, the band's) magnum opus--the expertly constructed and deftly executed classic, "Stairway to Heaven". --Billy Altman

5.0 out of 5 stars One of three Zepplin 'essentials'. June 6 2009
Format:Audio CD
This is the type of music that will go on and on in rock history. The stars lined up and Plant, Page, Jones and Bonham came together as a unique musical unit to create timeless rock music. Almost all the Zep albums are great, however, in my opinion Zep I, II and this one, are essentials. The other reviewers have said it all in terms of the quality and diversity of music on this album. Go buy it...you won't regret it. Now, if you want some comdey, read the reviews that rated this gem 'one star'. When people start talking Limp Bizkit, Linkin Park, Duran Duran, Seether, Saliva, Trapt, Staind, Puddle Of Mudd, Blink 182, Drowning Pool, Kid Rock, crazy Town, O-Town, Justin Timberlicker in the same breath as Led Zeppelin, they all need to live with Durst in, oh ya, OBSCURITY.
Have a nice day!!

5.0 out of 5 stars I can't believe these reviews Dec 25 2013
By GCB
Format:Audio CD
I must totally agree with Jane Skinner's comments. Anyone who doesn't acknowledge this band (and this album) as "legendary" simply needs to have their head examined. This band shaped rock n roll for decades to come. All four musicians were unrivaled in their day and have gone on to be considered "legends" of the music world by other famous musicians. I was a HUGE Led Zep fan back in the 70's (I am 53 yrs old) and since that time, I have been a fan of many styles of music (punk, new wave, gothic, industrial electronic, grunge, jazz, world, and classical) and have over 1,000 albums on vinyl and over 3,000 cd's. I have recently been diving back into classic bands like Zeppelin, and I must say, I love and admire them as much now as I did then. I just don't understand how someone could possibly give a one star rating to classic, future shaping music, from one of the worlds greatest rock bands. Compare this genre of music to the crap one hears these days in hip hop and rap music (gangster music). Give your head a good shake and wake up man...

5.0 out of 5 stars The greatest album of all time May 31 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
There has never been anything approaching Led Zeppelin IV. The album starts off with a bang, albeit on a rough edge with two of the weaker tracks of the album, Black Dog and Rock and Roll. It is a testament to this phenomenal work that the songs are considered classics. The album then changes from great to classic in the space of six songs. The Battle of Evermore, with its Eastern mythological undertones, veers the album away from John Paul Jones' hard bass and John Bonham's fierce drums, instead focusing on the beautiful melodies of Jimmy Page and the voices of Robert Plant and guest vocalist Sandy Denny. The classic centerpiece, Stairway to Heaven, is an epic masterpiece of a song. Misty Mountain Hop, Four Sticks, and Going to California round out the smazing middle of the album with rock, folk, and Eastern influences permeating throughout each song. The kicker, though, is the last song of the album: When the Levee Breaks. Viciously powerful, Bonham, Jones, and Page create a hard rocking atmosphere unparalleled. The tone is harsh, edgy, and brilliant. It catapults IV into the stratosphere of legendary: nothing like this has ever been recoded since.

5.0 out of 5 stars Led the GOOD MUSIC get into your ears July 7 2004
Format:Audio CD
Ok, I've been reading all the 1 star reviews and I see basically the same all the time (Except for "Avril Lavigne#1 fan and Fred Durst#1 fan. They HAVE TO be joking. If they are not, then God have mercy of this country). It seems that the love for speed and heavy riffs make the people reject other good music. Look, I listen to almost everything(Not pop nu metal, 50 Cent and all that). From old good Rock of the 60s,70s and 80s like The Beatles, The Doors, Pink Floyd, old Kiss, old Aerosmith, Queen, Guns n Roses, Deep Purple, etc(no order). I like Dylan and I own some Clapton CDs. I listen to Metal. I love the legions of cheesy European Power Metal bands, I listen to trash Metal, I listen to the Death Melodic Metal bands like In Flames, Arch Enemy, Opeth, Children of Bodom, etc. I listen to Progressive Rock and Metal (Rush, Dream Theater, Symphony X). I listen to "Gothic" Metal bands such as The Gathering or Lacuna Coil. I even like the brutal Death/Grindcore bands like Cryptopsy, Nile, Cephalic Carnage (Yes, the ones that sound like animals and an explosion behind). I love classical music. I'm a fan of Johann Pachelbel, Antonio Vivaldi, Johann Sebastian Bach, George Frederic Handel, Joseph Haydn, Luigi Boccherini, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Ludwig van Beethoven, Robert Schumann, Franz Liszt, Giuseppe Fortunino Francesco Verdi, Johannes Brahams, Richard Wagner, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, Antonin Dvorák and Igor Stravinsky (Order of date in which they were born).It seems that our "metal music fans" or "rock music fans" can't appreciate good music. Slipknot? First of all, a big number of material that Page has played in his carrer is more complex than anything of Slipknot. Overrated Guitar? This is just not working. Look. I'm a big fan of Malmsteen. He plays the fastest solos in the world. Read more ›

This CD not only sold more albums then most new bands (and believe me, most new bands such as a band I hate called Limp Bizkit), but they created some of the most popular songs of our time. Now, Im only 14 and I'm obsessed with Zeppelin. I think that Jimmy Page was way ahead of his time when he played the guitar. He had soooooo many creative ideas, not only for electric, but for the acoustic too! The CD begins with Black Dog, a fast paced song with awesome lyrics and amazing guitar. The solo at the end is awesome. This song is probably one of the better Zeppelin songs that were released. Next up is Rock and Roll, a really cool song that plays on commercials an awful lot (look for those Cadallacs!!!). This song starts off like a blues type song and erupts into a song based on rock and roll. Really good singing on Robert Plant's part and another great song by Zep. Next is Battle Of Evermore, a really neat song that sounds as if it came straight from the LOTR series. Now, I don't even need to explain why the 4th song on the album is famous... but Im still going to anyway. Stairway to Heaven is the perfect song. Perfect lyrics by Plant, superb job on the guitar (acoustic AND electric) by Page. Not only did him and Plant create one of the most famous songs ever, but Page created the most famous guitar solo ever!! Running at 8 minutes, this song never got tired on the radio. To this day, it is the most played song on the radio. The rest of the CD is amazing, including Going To California, a really cool acoustic song. Don't listen to all the one star reviewers. They don't know how to tell good guitarists from another. It takes skill to create solos for every single songs. It takes even more skill to make these solos some of the #1 ones in the world. However, it doesn't take any skill what so ever to pick up a guitar, play four or five bar chords over and over while adding effects and screaming while swearing. That's not skill. Zepp is skill.
