iTunes Editors’ Notes

With each successive studio album Led Zeppelin further defined their territory and their artistic reach. For album number four, often referred to as “Runes” for the Runic symbols on the cover, Zep pulled all the aspects of their legend into tight focus. “Black Dog” twisted a blues-boogie riff around Robert Plant’s macho swagger and drummer John Bonham’s unerring sense of time, while “Rock and Roll” took a primordial textbook guitar riff and slammed it into the ground. A mandolin and English folk legend Sandy Denny perfectly complement “The Battle of Evermore” and set the stage for the band’s magnum opus, “Stairway to Heaven,” where for eight minutes the band builds its “Bolero,” a simmering to a boil dynamic wedded to a serpentine melody that leads from a mystical English garden to a raving, megalomaniacal climax. “Misty Mountain Hop” and “Four Sticks” exhibit the band’s unusually funky approach to hard rock rhythms. “Going to California” retains a hippie mysticism in its folk roots, while “When the Levee Breaks” shudders with the cataclysmic wallop of John Bonham and guitars that practically bleed from the speakers. Led Zeppelin never cut a bad studio album and most of their work is essential listening to any serious rock music fan. But Led Zeppelin IV remains the group’s crowning achievement.

Customer Reviews

Led Zeppelin IV

This has got to be one of the top ten rock albums of all time. If you could only own one Zeppelin album, this would be it.

Blindess and Vision

This is THE definitive rock album. Only Led Zeppelin could create an album in which the soft ballad, "Going to California," would precede the rock epic, "When the Levee Breaks." This sort of contrast between light and dark shows that Led Zeppelin could do it all and were truly rock gods. Jimmy Page, I worship you. That is all.

This IS music!

This album should be taught in history classes around the world.

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

Led Zeppelin was the definitive heavy metal band. It wasn't just their crushingly loud interpretation of the blues — it was how they incorporated mythology, mysticism, and a variety of other genres (most notably world music and British folk) — into their sound. Led Zeppelin had mystique. They rarely gave interviews, since the music press detested the band. Consequently, the only connection the audience had with the band was through the records and the concerts. More than any other band,...
