Presence is Led Zeppelin's hardest rocking album, but unfortunately their most inconsistent as well. Jimmy Page shows here clearly why he is one of the greatest guitar players of all time, especially on the epic track "Achilles Last Stand". In fact, that track is one of Zeppelin's best ever. It is John Bonham's best drumming performance ever. Very few could have ever pulled off a performance like this. Also, Robert Plant shows off one of his greatest vocal performances as well. But the real hero of this song and this album for that fact is Jimmy Page. His guitar roars through this track, and is nearly breathtaking. Besides "Achilles" the rest of the songs on this album are also very good with the exception of "Royal Orleans" and "Hots on for Nowhere" which bring the album down to a four instead of a five star rating. Otherwise the rest of the tracks are very good. "Tea For One" is the other great epic track on this album. It's a blues track that kind of recalls "Since I've Been Lovin You" from Zep III, but is also quite different in its own way. The guitars are more out front here, and Plant does not sing as much. This track is still aweasome, and ranks up there with their better epics. The other two stand out tracks here are "For Your Life" and "Nobody's Fault but Mine" with are two great rockers. "Nobody's Fault..." is pure metal. Overall, this album is still well worth purchasing, even though it is one of their weaker albums.
