Product Description

Amazon.ca

This 1975 release came smack in the middle of a long and nearly mythic career. Physical Graffiti is the last great Led Zeppelin title, recorded before the influences of the day (synthesizers, disco) ended Zeppelin's reign as the kings of loud and sexy blues-metal. Playfully experimenting with new sounds, the band blended Middle Eastern rhythms, folk-stylings, heavy blues, and deeply impassioned rock riffs into a two-disc set that sounded as if they were still enjoying their place in the rock pantheon. As sprawling and adventurous as this collection is, there are some tracks so tightly focused--so ultra-Zeppelinesque--that it's tempting to name this as a number one or number two must-have. "Trampled Underfoot" and "Custard Pie" alone are almost worth the double-disc price tag. --Lorry Fleming

Product Description

After a two-year hiatus, Led Zeppelin returned in 1975 with one of rock's greatest double albums, a sprawling work akin to Exile on Main Street in its loose, offhand brilliance. Includes Trampled Under Foot; Houses of the Holy; Kashmir; Down by the Seaside; Black Country Woman; In My Time of Dying , and more.

Physical Graffiti (1975.) Led Zeppelin's sixth album.
By 1975, Led Zeppelin had already proven themselves to be gods of rock and roll. What the Beatles were to the sixties, Led Zeppelin was to the seventies. The band had already released five albums, each one of which being excellent. Already they had experimented with a number of sounds, sometimes with excellent results, sometimes with, well, less than stellar results. The band released its sixth album, entitled Physical Graffiti, in 1975. How do Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, John Bonham, and John Paul Jones measure up this time around? Read on for my review of the album.
This is Led Zeppelin's most lengthy album, and the only one of their studio albums that is long enough to merit a two compact disc release. Many people compare Led Zeppelin to the Beatles, and perhaps this album is one of the greatest parallels between the two bands - it is VERY similar to the Beatles' self-titled "White" album in a number of ways. The first disc features seven hard-rocking instant classics that have since become Led Zepplin fan favorites. Is it humanly possible NOT to enjoy the classic hard rock stylings of Custard Pie and the Rover? Perhaps one of the most interesting songs of all is In My Time Of Dying, a song that Bob Dylan originally recorded on his 1962 self-titled debut album. The band brings new life into an already excellent song - something they proved they could do beautifully on their own debut album. Houses Of The Holy gives us more of that blues-flavored hard rock that the band served up so heavily in the old days, and does a damn good job of it. Trampled Under Foot is one of the band's most memorable rockers of all, mostly due to its catchy beat and instrument stylings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Physical Graffiti - The Best of Led Zeppelin July 13 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Physical Graffiti was my second Led Zeppelin album. I enjoyed it immediately, but I had no idea just how much it would later grow on me. Years since listening to it for the first time, it has advanced into probably somewhere around to my third or fifth favorite album.
Songs like "Kashmir" are extremely hyped, and while I wouldn't say it's overrated, there is some really great stuff on here besides it. At first, Disc 1 was largely my favorite. "Custard Pie," "Houses of the Holy," "Trampled Underfoot," and "Kashmir" are instantly likable songs. Disc 2 took its time, but now it is at least as good as disc 1. "In The Light" and "Bron-Yr-Aur" are two of the best songs ever written, and sound absolutely beautiful here performed by Led Zeppelin. The last few minutes of "In The Light" are music heaven.
Best Songs:
In The Light
In My Time of Dying
Bron-Yr-Aur
The Rover
Night Flight
Excellent Songs:
Kashmir
Custard Pie
Down By The Seaside
Ten Years Gone
Houses of the Holy
Wanton Song

5.0 out of 5 stars One Of The Best Albums By Zepp July 5 2004
Format:Audio CD
When I turned 13, my father gave me Physical Graffiti. Upon listening to it for the first time, I was thinking that it was the dumbest album I had ever heard. I didn't want to dissapoint my dad.
So, as the months went by, I bought Led Zeppelin III, IV and Presence. I was impressed, so I decided to give Physical Graffiti another try.
Boy, am I glad I did. Every song in the album is perfect. On this CD, you get more of a bluesy feel, especially on the second CD.
DISC 1: 1. Custerd Pie: Great start to the CD. Some great riffs by Page.

2. The Rover: Wow... REALLY great song. If you walked into my house, you could see me tearing my hair out trying to play it.
3. In My Time Of Dying: This is my favorite song by Zep (besides Stairway To Heaven). The guitar solos and riffs by Page are simply amazing. Bonham shows some of his greatest drumming in this song. And the lyrics are very neat.
4. Houses of the Holy: Really catchy song with REALLY catchy riffs.
5. Trampled Under Foot: One of my favorites on the album. The keyboards in this song are awesome. When i played the piano, I tried to learn this.
6. Kashmir: If i asked my friends if they liked this song, I'd get a whole lot of "THAT SONG SUCKS!!" Well, i disagree. This is a wonderful melodic song.
DISC 2 1. In The Light: Slow at first, but once you get into it(which is about two minutes in) it gets really catchy.
2. Bron-Yr-Aur: Short song, but wonderful acoustic on Page's part.
3. Down By The Seaside: This was actually one of my favorite songs on the album. It is very catchy and has great solo in the middle of song.
4. Ten Years Gone: Wonderful song... good guitar...

5.0 out of 5 stars Physical Graffiti June 26 2004
Format:Audio CD
Led Zeppelin returned from a nearly two-year hiatus in 1975 with Physical Graffiti, a sprawling, ambitious double album. Zeppelin treats many of the songs on Physical Graffiti as forays into individual styles, only occasionally synthesizing sounds, notably on the tense, Eastern-influenced "Kashmir." With John Paul Jones' galloping keyboard, "Trampled Underfoot" ranks as their funkiest metallic grind, while "Houses of the Holy" is as effervescent as pre-Beatles pop and "Down By the Seaside" is the closest they've come to country. Even the heavier blues -- the 11-minute "In My Time of Dying," the tightly wound "Custard Pie," and the monstrous epic "The Rover" -- are subtly shaded, even if they're thunderously loud. Most of these heavy rockers are isolated on the first album, with the second half of Physical Graffiti sounding a little like a scrap-heap of experiments, jams, acoustic workouts, and neo-covers. This may not be as consistent as the first platter, but its quirks are entirely welcome, not just because they encompass the mean, decadent "Sick Again," but the heartbreaking "Ten Years Gone" and the utterly charming acoustic rock & roll of "Boogie With Stu" and "Black Country Woman." Yes, some of this could be labeled as filler, but like any great double album, its appeal lies in its great sprawl, since it captures elements of the band's personality rarely showcased elsewhere -- and even at its worst, Physical Graffiti towers above its hard rock peers of the mid-'70s.
