iTunes Editors' Notes

Robert Plant sounds truly engaged on this 2005 release, which takes the core of the band that played on 2002’s Dreamland and renames them The Strange Sensation. Guitarists Justin Adams and Skin Tyson work with keyboardist John Baggot and the phenomenal rhythm section of bassist Billy Fuller and drummer Clive Deamer to create that vaguely Middle Eastern sound that’s long been among Led Zeppelin’s finest contributions to rock music. Plant takes the tension of Zep’s “Kashmir” and applies the strings and Moroccan bendir drums to the material with a passionate hand. “Freedom Fries” turns up the angst for a true sense of how Plant can co-mingle his folk music interests with the harder rock of his youth. Baggot’s keys guide the smoldering frustration of “Tin Pan Valley” until Deamer’s drums offer moments of release. “All the King’s Horses” offers a look at Plant’s English folk side. Throughout, the Zeppelin lineage is toyed with, played against, devilishly recalled, and essentially recast in Plant’s modern image. Plant accepts elements of the myth and sounds like a man enjoying the mastery of his talents. 

Customer Reviews

Classic Plant.

It's a "grower" but once you're into it it's totally worth it. Superb production - great songs - classic RP - a mix of driving rock & acoustic eastern/N African influences. If you grew up on Robert's earlier legendery work - you'll relish this.

Indeed

Every few years Percy throws out another record and old Zep heads get a little excited until they actually hear the album. That's not to say Plant's solo output is rubbish, just... his albums... a little... inconsistent.

This ones different. Not different in sounds. It has a lot of Walking Into Clarksdale about it and flashes of Manic Nirvana with the synths turned down. But it's different in it's consistency. It sounds like a record someone who used to be in Led Zeppelin would make. Both in maturity and in infulence.

It is moody and strutts it's stuff. It has some lush deep arrangements and some classic heavy harmonies. But it's a cooingly confident record. And in my humblest of opinions, for this restraint in it's swagger it's his best since the heady days.

I think it helps he's backed by a bona fide band, not just session guys (yes I know Led Zep day one were basically just that) The Strange Sensation sound how their name suggests they sound... Like mature rockers from another time who can seriously play but wont break out into anarchic punk noise at anytime. It's all very acceptable at the dinner table, yet you know... you just know this guy is an old school mischief maker.

Freedom Fries title alone dates the album as belonging to the 21st century but it's delta groove could be 100 years old. Lead single Shine It All Around is one of his solo years high points.As good as the Band Of Joy track doing the rounds right now and then some.

Another Tribe, Somebody Knocking and the title track all deserve a mention and then just before the album bows out there is a little surprise in Brother Ray. Masquerading as the final Song proper this track is actually a Dub remix of the lead single. A cheap trick? It might be if it didn't sound like it should be playing on a PA in a beach bar while you got sand between your toes and drank yourself dancey on a Greek Island. Mighty ReArranger indeed.

Massive Attack + Robert Plant !!!

In a recent interview Robert Plant said that the sound of this album was the closest he could come to envisioning what Led Zep would have sounded like had they progressed and evolved. Great sound and Plant hits some of his classic notes.
