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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this! March 11 2012
By Emily
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I never heard the majority of the songs on this double album (except for the classics like Kashmir and Ten Years Gone, etc) and I was super impressed! I am in LOVE with Sick Again and Boogie With Stu. All the tracks on this album are good, and have a really great high energy feel! The guitar work in this is phenomanal, really bluesy feeling, and the drumming like always is spot on and really heavy! Plant's vocals are great, althought they can get pretty whiny at times (in a good way though), the lyrics are interesting. Jones has some great bass lines here, and the keyboards in some of the songs are just awesome!
I'm in love with this album! BUY IT!

3.0 out of 5 stars overhyped mess March 30 2001
Format:Audio CD
Despite its diversity, it's a mess of an album. Most of the songs are annoying, silly things. Despite that, there is some good music, jimmy page is always worth hearing on guitar. He has some fine moments with 'the rover', 'ten years gone by' 'in my time of dying'. 'kashmir' is overrated as a tune, but the sound is good. Nice acoustic guitar cameo, 'bron yr aur'. Then you have muck like 'down by the seaside' and 'boogie with stu' and 'custard pie'. Uneven in quality, taken from studio work from 1972 and 1974, showing that the boys are running out of ideas. They only made 3 more albums,which are poor. Still, I salute them for all the enjoyment their music has given me. Thank you

3.0 out of 5 stars Impressive but not captivating Jan. 9 2001
Format:Audio CD
Musically speaking, this album is incredible. John Bonham is on fire. There are a few songs here that I do really enjoy. Trampled Under Foot, Kashmir, Ten Years Gone, and Down By The Seaside. Lot's of standard Zeppelin rockers like House of The Holy, Custard Pie, and the Wanton Song(great title, if nothing else). The problem is, though, that these songs bear a very striking similarity to all of their previous upbeat rockers. As usual, the lyrics are silly and secondary to the music. The thing about the album is that while your average garage band could never come up with something on this level, I don't really enjoy the album. In My Time Of Dying is the best example of this. An 11 minute jam which may be both Jimmy Page's and John Bonham's best ever work. The only problem is the song is awful. It's probably the least enjoyable song on the album.

3.0 out of 5 stars That Voice! Jan. 7 2000
Format:Audio CD
I must admit that I'd like Zep a little better if not for Plant's vocals. Screeching is not singing.
The unsung hero of this group was JP Jones. Underreated as a musician and composer and never given his just due.
PG is probably my favorite Zeppelin recording, but it's not in the classic category by any means.

Listen to me. If you're thinking about buying physical graffiti, I won't discourage you, but I'm an expert zeppelin and can tell you that these people really don't know what they're talking about.
First, let me tell you that I am a devout zeppelin fan; I own every single one of their albums and know more about them then 99% of the fans out there. I can honestly say that Physical Graffiti is highly overrated.
At this point in their career, Zep was going into the "addiction" phase; it took them 18 months to put this album out compared to the usual 9 months for others. To compensate, the band made it appear that they had created 2x as many songs. But oh contrare! The Rover, Houses of the Holy, Bron-Yr-Ar, The Wanton Song, Boogie With Stu and Night Flight were all "left-overs" from previous albums that they never used. (Night Flight wasn't even their song; the Rolling Stones wrote it!)
Kashmir, one of the only reasons to buy this album, was written before they got into the studio, so that leaves a few good songs left--Ten Years Gone (which sounds like Page and Plant material), Trampled Underfoot (which was ripped off from Stevie Wonder), and In The Light (which they wrecked; the studio version sounds much better).
You may argue that the album was successful because it sold 10 million copies. True, however, by that time, Zep had made such a name for themselves that the fans would have bought almost anything. And because it was a "straightforward" rock and roll album, it was exactly what the fans wanted.
Their next album displayed a band grossly plagued by addiction, however, because of their name, Zep went platinum before the it even came out in stores.

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.
