Customer Reviews

Good album, as usual

This is a very fine album, for the most part, and worth the money. I have listened to it many times, and have found that it grows on me with each successive listening. I am particularly fond of Plant's covers of Morning Dew and Darkness, Darkness. One more Cup of Coffee isn't bad, but does suffer somewhat in comparison with the original, featuring the crystalline vocals of Emmylou Harris, on Dylan's Desire album. Hey Joe is also fairly good, though Hendrix's version is better, for obvious reasons. Song to the Siren isn't bad at all, until you hear the original, which blows all covers of it away, even Plant's. The blues-oriented and rock tracks are probably the strongest on the album, which is to be expected. Tracks 1, 4, 6, and 8 are keepers. Give this album a try-you'll be glad you did.

best solo robert plant

Just for 'Darkness, Darkness' and 'Song to the Siren.' Those 2 songs constitute 'the best of Robert Plant' for me. Whoever this band was, they were MAGIC!

Manic Talent

There are moments this record that surmount anything he has done since he embarked from Led Zeppelin. Not only is this album a milestone in his career, it also serves as a beginner's guide to the late 1960s Rock era. Each song exemplifies the folk/psychedelic hybrid immortalized as the "San Francisco Sound." Plant takes these songs and splashes them with modern flairs. It works for the most part, the instances where it does not work constitute the only major flaw on the album. Plant's "Hey Joe" is outwardly a brutal cover, however, its forced harshness detracts from the overall effect. I found Porl Thompson's guitar solo highly energetic and emotional, yet it did not seem to correlate with the piece. It belonged elsewhere. There are a few other instances dispersed throughout the record.

The band is Plant's best up to this point in his solo career. The chemistry is electric and nuclear. Nonetheless, the only original song on this album falls into the usual 1970s Rock cliches("Red Dress"). Regardless, every track on the album contains its own merits. "Darkness, Darkness," "Song to the Siren," "Skip's Song" and "Morning Dew" are revitalizing renditions. Robert Plant has a talent for controlling a band's volcanic temperaments. Whether it's the slight tremble in "Morning Dew" or the tremors on "Funny in My Mind(I Believe I'm Fixin' to Die)," or the misguided eruption featured on "Hey Joe," the record maintains a ghost that will keep calling you to come back and listen.

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

In 1968, a naïve young singer from the Black Country hills in England named Robert Plant was discovered wailing the blues by veteran session guitarist Jimmy Page and bassist/keyboardist John Paul Jones. When Plant recommended his friend John Bonham as the drummer, one of the most successful bands in rock history was born: Led Zeppelin. But the group that started with such force also ended in flames after 12 years, as Bonham's death from alcohol poisoning in 1980 split the band after nine albums....
