    Excellent album by an exceptional band, why not the best band of all time. Four incredible musician with a immeasurable empathy playing. Page and his creativity and feeling playing, Bonhan with his unquestionable talent and aggressive playing drums, Plant with his powerful voice and Jones with all his musical erudition adding many arrangements to the album with beautiful piano pulsatingExcellent album by an exceptional band, why not the best band of all time. Four incredible musician with a immeasurable empathy playing. Page and his creativity and feeling playing, Bonhan with his unquestionable talent and aggressive playing drums, Plant with his powerful voice and Jones with all his musical erudition adding many arrangements to the album with beautiful piano pulsating basslines. LZI is heavy, bluesy, technical, aggressive, intense, full-of-energy and many another adjectives which still won't express the marvelous that this album is.
    About the re-issue extra material, the only one that shows a decent stuff without taking money giving the same album twice, as in posteriors re-releases. It Gives Zeppelin playing in Paris in a quite interesting performance. Not their best shows, but it has a lot of energy that band has performing.
    The most worthwhile band's reissue about material. [11/10 for the album, 8/10 for the extra material]

    O melhor álbum de estreia de todos os tempos. Possui faixar pesadas como "Good Times Bad Times" e faixas viajantes como "Babe, I'm Gonna Leave You". Eu amo tanto esse albúm, wow.

    My second favourite album of all time after The Beatles' Abbey Road, honestly. Songs like Dazed And Confused, You Shook Me, How Many More Times, Communication Breakdown... ALL of them are flawless. In my opinion, this is Led Zep's best album (sorry, IV). Fully recommended.

    The fearsome foursome's eponymous, 1969 debut pairs its volcanic blues and folk with a raw performance from that same year in Paris.

    Upgrading previous remasterings, Page's personal touch brings out even more detail.... Each album's companion disc supplies both pleasure and an education. [Jul 2014, p.120]

    From a purely sonic standpoint, these new versions are impossible to disregard.... The deluxe edition bonus material is more hit-or-miss. Since the Led Zeppelin vaults had basically already been emptied, Page tosses in a bonus Paris live show from 1969; the eight-track set has already circulated as a bootleg for years, and it remains inessential.
