Robert Plant demonstrates that he's one of the best in the business with a very eclectic and satisfying album. From the piano oriented A Stolen Kiss to the rocker Turn It Up, every song forms part of a whole that Plant crafted very consciously.… Expand

However, this is an album which has something of a classic written all over it because whatever he is trying to convey is done with a quiet sort of grace. I like it much better than his work with Allison Krauss - that album having a sort of way of making one tire of it. This album has all sorts of interesting things to discover. It might need more than one or two plays to appreciate it more fully.… Expand

I find, although the album has no bad tracks on it, some of the songs on the second half of the album are a little weaker. Otherwise i would happily say this was among some of Plant's best work.
If I was to be honest, i wouldn't say i was that bothered whether Led Zeppelin reformed or not, because there's the great and most influential music they came out with then, and there's also some of the great, immensely enjoyable works of the Zeppelin vocalist now, years later.
its called moving on, people, and wanting to be known for something perhaps a little different.… Expand

This is the first album I have ever heard in it entirety from Plant's solo career. It shows a wide variety of influence and it displays a lot of music that I would not have checked out otherwise. You can't expect Led Zeppelin if you buy this album but I think most fans know that by now. Lullaby and.... The Ceaseless Roar is a very good album and it really turns me on to Robert Plant's solo work. I now understand why he is so reluctant to go out and tour with Zeppelin and that is because he is experimenting with other areas of music and doing a damn good job of it. I highlight the tracks Little Maggie, Rainbow, Turn It Up and A Stolen Kiss.… Expand

This album is an effortless journey into a slumber, where me, the listener keeps hoping for a slight jolt of excitement from one of the masters of the past. Nope. It's exactly what it claims to be, a Lullaby, but with an absent "Roar" there's no "Roar" here. It's all Lullaby, and that's fine. I felt let down. Like a first date with a girl that brags about her oral skills, only to find she was literally referring to her speaking skills. There was no oral fun.
This is like that date. You are all ready for "Robert Plant" the elder statesman of rock, but you get Robert Plan the elder statesman of elder. I don't know if I will play this one again, until I too become elder, much elder.… Expand
