Jun 11, 2014Little more needs to be emphasized about the lasting importance of these prototypes other than this third reissue tweaks the sound with Page’s new remastering revealing nuances in the playing and arrangements that further enhance their already substantial historical cachet.

Jun 6, 2014While not the towering achievement of its brothers in numerology, Led Zeppelin III remains one of the great albums in rock and roll history, significant for its role in establishing the legend of Led Zeppelin that would become fact with Led Zeppelin IV.

A patchy mix of tracks, put together by a band recuperating from massive initial success and endless touring. Full marks to LZ for taking the time to radically expand their musical palette though, and there are certainly plenty of highlights on show - but there are nondescript and unfocused moments as well.
