5 stars A masterpiece of over the top energy, counterbalanced by precise restraint, Heavy Rock will never be the same. Even though, at the time of release, its heavy weighted contenders (The Beatles, Hendrix, et al), were already "legends" , this band never sounded like any of them, not by chance, far from it, they were able in their near future (1969) to completely change the face of "the blues", to their own service of self-expression, opposite to just playing for the sake of playing the "Blues". How? By great song writing. Easy does it. How far? To the point of opening up the unexisting, by the time, roads to newer generations, overwhelmed by the sound of an unrepeatable display of passion and fury, alongside extremely ethereal acoustic compositions and performances, that even "PROGGERS" could not afford to ignore, that far. The perfect Led Zeppelin album, their first release, covers most of the ground that the later efforts (2,3,4, half of the 5th, the no-funk songs, and the excessive "Graffity") will detail in more exactly, but that will happen later in time. But this their first, is their wildest, not overly produced, record. Every second of this "gem" is never out of place, every performance is perfect pitch. Really nothing compares to it, inside or outside the Led Zeppelin's discography. A real *****5 PA STARS record !
