5 stars I'm glad to see this album up on the top 100 list, it definitely deserves to be there. The acoustic medleys on this album are all spectacular and the poetry is very pretty as well. The track that features Jimmy Page as the second guitarist "The Same Old Rock" is one of my favorite songs of all time. The dueling yet lilting guitar melodies create a musical atmosphere of prodigous delight. The flow of the intriguing poetic language with these intertwing guitars is like a calm stream fading and evaporating into black mist on a warm evening. At the end of the song Jimmy Page solos on acoustic guitar. It is an uncommon rarity among Zeppelin fans, but now that this album is being recognized it will serve as an enigmatic discovery and a new side to the ever-heavy-metal Jimmy Page. The other tracks on this album are great as well. Listen up, now.
