    Led Zeppelin were an English rock band formed in London in 1968. The group consisted of guitarist Jimmy Page, singer Robert Plant, bassist and keyboardist John Paul Jones, and drummer John Bonham. The band's heavy, guitar-driven sound, rooted in blues and psychedelia on their early albums, has earned them recognition as one of the progenitors of heavy metal, though their unique style drew from a wide variety of influences, including folk music.

    Zoso, III, II, and Houses of the Holy. One of my all time favorite bands

    I feel at this point that No Quarter off of TSRTS is the best rock song I've ever heard.

    Since I've Been Loving You is close behind (and coincidently preceeds it on TSRTS). I honestly don't know what's better, Page's guitar or Plant's voice. Just unreal stuff.

    so I recently inherited those insane box set reissues for each album that were done back in 2014

    Giving me an excuse to dive deeper into their catalog beyond the standards I already know

    Recently got into them, honestly. Trying to get into a lot of classic rock stuff because I never really dove into the great stuff!

    Anything else as amazing as Zeppelin I should be listening to?

    The Doors, Jimi Hendrix, The Who, and Pink Floyd are the bands I listened to a lot way back when, when I first got into Led Zeppelin.

    However, none of them are as amazing as Zeppelin!

    You can go back one band to the Yardbirds and follow how their three guitarists (Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page) branched off. Obviously Page had Zeppelin, but the other two went in wildly different directions. Cream should probably be essential listening.

    Because I'm a huge nerd, you can also listen to the original versions of the songs that Zeppelin borrowed/ripped off from. How they rearranged and amplified folk songs is so amazing.

    Led Zeppelin is a great debut

    Obviously some classic rippers on here ("Dazed and Confused," "Good Times Bad Times," "Communication Breakdown") but I was struck by all of the folk influence on here

    "You're Time is Gonna Come," particularly reeks of late 60s psychedelic folk influence. That chorus is just so SUNNY too, especially for Led Zeppelin

    As always, Bonham is incredible and the standout on nearly every track

    Getting the complete Led Zep box set from my uncle years ago was one of the most important, formative musical experiences I've had. Page and Co are probably only 2nd to AC/DC in getting me to pick up a guitar and guiding me through my first few years of both playing and listening to music seriously.

    I used to hold up IV as the greatest album, then TSRTS, but Physical Graffiti is just massive.

    Anyone ever seen Zepparella?

    lo mein connoisseur

    Decided to finally dive into their discography since I've only ever listened to their most popular songs. Just finished Led Zeppelin and I really enjoyed You're Time is Gonna Come as someone else mentioned. I Can't Quit You Baby was another I liked aside from the well known tracks on it. Only one I wasn't a huge fan of was You Shook Me.

    I'm starting to think II is a bit overrated. Yeah, it's great, but the next 4 following it beat it. III in particular has been climbing in my esteem. They incorporate the folkier stuff so well without losing their ability to rock.

    i feel the same about iv, actually. the one of the numbered albums i come back to least.

    Wild, because I think III is probably my least favorite/revisited/whatever of the numbered ones. Although I generally skip Stairway now.

    lo mein connoisseur

    I just finished I -IV. I can see why a lot of people regard IV as the best but I would put that tied for 2nd with II. Honestly, I've enjoyed their debut the most. III has some gems like Celebration Day and Since I've Been Loving You but otherwise I've had no real desire to go through it again. I also hate the Immigration Song.

    I wish I could still listen to Since I’ve Been Loving You. It was a top 3 Zeppelin song for me along with Achilles’ Last Stand and No Quarter but the squeaky kick pedal cuts right through everything.
