Editors’ Notes

Led Zeppelin were never a group of settlers. Their previous album, IV virtually defined the hard rock genre with its era-defining guitar riffs and bombastic destiny. It remains among rock’s essential albums. The follow-up never tries to emulate that achievement. Instead, Houses of the Holy approaches things from a diverse, genre-busting side. “The Song Remains the Same” opens things at their leisure, opting for a dense guitar-heavy maelstrom that soon gives way to the meditative seven-and-a-half minutes of “The Rain Song.” Guitarist Jimmy Page and bassist-keyboardist John Paul Jones work in lockstep, weaving mystical passages (the shivering mellotron-heavy “No Quarter”), dynamic acoustic/electric rock (“Over the Hills and Far Away”), reggae (“D’Yer Maker”) and both pseudo-funk (the James Brown homage “The Crunge”) and their own legitimate brand of groove rock (“The Ocean,” “Dancing Days”) always with a sense of musical space that allowed each instrument to shine individually and work within the context of the group. Led Zeppelin mastered each genre they attempted. They never shied from a new idea. And they often succeeded brilliantly with each risk.

Customer Reviews

Houses Of The Holiest

Love this album not a bad one in the bunch. We all have these albums but itunes wants us to repurchase them again no thanks love it anyway though! PEACE!!

I'm sorry

I'm sorry that I doubted Apple because this "Mastered for iTunes" version sounds absolutely brilliant.

I'm also sorry that Apple is charging us a steep price to repurchase albums we already own.

Finally, I'm sorry that I will have to spend more money buying this album again when the new Jimi Page remasters are released next year.

Amazed

I could keep rediscovering this album forever. Lost between Zoso and Physical Graffiti, this album reminds me of how balanced this band was and how they are better as a whole than individuals.

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

What the Beatles were to the '60s, Led Zeppelin were to the '70s: a band so successful and innovative they wound up creating the prism through which their entire epoch was seen. Zeppelin ushered in the era of album rock — they refused to release singles off their albums, even when they were garnering massive radio play — and of arena rock, playing ever-larger stadiums as their ticket sales skyrocketed. Other bands played on a similar field but Led Zeppelin carried a unique mystique cultivated...
