Led Zeppelin III

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
On their first two albums, Led Zeppelin unleashed a relentless barrage of heavy blues and rockabilly riffs, but Led Zeppelin III provided the band with the necessary room to grow musically. While there are still a handful of metallic rockers, III is built on a folky, acoustic foundation that gives the music extra depth. And even the rockers aren't as straightforward as before: the galloping "Immigrant Song" is powered by Robert Plant's banshee wail, "Celebration Day" turns blues-rock inside out with a warped slide guitar riff, and "Out on the Tiles" lumbers along with a tricky, multi-part riff. Nevertheless, the heart of the album lies on the second side, when ...

Nevertheless, the heart of the album lies on the second side, when the band delve deeply into English folk. "Gallows Pole" updates a traditional tune with a menacing flair, and "Bron-Y-Aur Stomp" is an infectious acoustic romp, while "That's the Way" and "Tangerine" are shimmering songs with graceful country flourishes. The band hasn't left the blues behind, but the twisted bottleneck blues of "Hats off to Roy Harper" actually outstrips the epic "Since I've Been Loving You," which is the only time Zeppelin sound a bit set in their ways.

    News Flash: Zeppelin Makes Greatest Album!!

    No kiddin', this is like the very best of the mighty,mighty Zeppelin. Apart from "Stairway To Heaven", "Immigrant Song" is one of Zeppelin's greatsest songs. And combined with heart-wrenchers and ear-poppers like "Since I Been Lovin' You" and "Out On The Tiles" this makes one awesome listinin'. I started listenin' to Zeppelin with this one and I loved it so much I went out and bought 1,2,and 4 right after that. I love the British folk sound that makes the album what it is. Songs like "Gallows Pole" and "Bron-Yaur-Stomp" give you the perfect feeling of British culture. I love the mixture. Words can't describe it. I'll just say it's great. Thank You.

    Favorite Zepp Album by Miles

    Although some may disagree, I find this album to be Led Zeppelin's best. It might be because it's full of acoustic and folk songs (which I love), but there's just something special about it. Tangerine is my favorite Led Zeppelin song and one of my favorite acoustic songs ever, but Bron-Y-Aur Stomp and That's the Way are both up there as well. Apart from the countryish parts of the album, it also has some headbangers such as Immigrant Song and Out on the Tiles or the epic song Since I've Been Loving You, although the folkish songs definitely dominate the album. This is a must buy for anyone.

    Freaking awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This album is magnificent. It isn't my fave Zepp album but it is high on the list. The best songs are Immigrant Song, Gallows Pole, That's the Way, Tangerine, and Out on the Tiles. Now this album is more acoustical than there other albums but it is just as good. If you need something soothing to listen before u go to bed then this is a good choice.

    Led Zeppelin is the Best Rock Band Ever

    I never thought that if you took such a folky sound and put it in a rock song, it'd come out sounding this good. There's something about the folky sound to Gallows Pole, Celebration Day, and Friends that makes the music almost come alive. I think that's the reason that Zeppelin was so great---because they had so much variety in their music. Also, the eerie wail that Robert Plant does in the beginning of Immigrant song, and its repetitve, electric sound makes it one of their best. "Hammer of the Gods" fits them so perfectly. Since I've Been Loving You is just pure guitar magic.

    Led Zeppelin, That's the Way to Do Music!

    Led Zeppelin III is very acoustic album. There are only three tracks, "Immigrant Song", "Celebration Day", "Out on the Tiles" that reminds songs in Led Zeppelin II. These ballads are well-done. You can't explain it but maybe it has something to do with Robert Plant's voice. "Since I've Been Loving You" is beautiful song although Plant's voice is like in song "Whole Lotta Love".

    Essential Album

    I own every Led Zep album, and there is no way I can pick a favorite album. Led Zeppelin's first six albums are absolutely six of the best albums ever released. This is one of them, and it shows a different side of Led Zeppelin that was hinted at on Led Zeppelin I with some of the acoustic work that was done on the album. While headbangers might be a little disappointed that this album doesn't have as many pure heavy blues rock riffs (the opener "Immigrant Song" is a tease) This album has a little of everything, and it's truly remarkable. Songs like Friends, Gallows Pole, and Tangerine show off Zep's acoustic yet experimental side. That's The Way features some of Plant's best lyrics, and Bron Yr Aur Stomp sounds like Led Zep are just kicking back and having fun. Hat's Off is a different kind of song, some don't dig it but I don't mind it, it's definitely a different song, but if you've heard Roy Harper you'd understand why the song is kind of "out there" All the musicians are in fine form, and this is a truly great album.

    Led Zeppelin III Deserves a Whole Lotta' Love

    This album is really great. The songs do have some of the headbanging riff-rockers but most of them have a nice deep folky sound to them. Robert Plant's vocals are ,as always, wonderful. Jimmy Page is a musical genius and the true mastermind behind the band. Buy this album!

    An Early Zeppelin Masterpice

    A great album. One of their early masterpices. A triumph of rock music. A definite buy. It only falters on a few songs.

    PURE ZEPPELIN!

    I may not know much about the technical aspect of the album, but one thing I do know is that the music was pretty darn good. It sounds like the group was even more united and I think with a more spiritual direction. The lyrics were more poetic and subjective, giving us images through the music. Again, what I like most about this album is the integration of the musicians, the hard rock power,the folk compositions with a zeppelin touch and specially the rythem section of Jones and Bonham. Page and Plant were at the top of their game also ,writing classic zeppelin songs one after the other. This album is one of the greatest of all time for me. Maybe in the top 40.

    As good as the first two

    This third album is about on par with the second, meaning it's excellent; but this time more in a folky, laid-back way. The headbangers amongst thee will enjoy the monster riffs of 'Immigrant Song' and 'Celebration Day', but equally enthralling are the hypnotic Celtic charm of 'Friends', the countryfied pop of 'Tangerine', and the long acoustic ballad 'That's the Way', all fine pieces of work. 'Gallows Pole' displays just what olde English folk sounds like gone hard rock. Track for track, this is an effort on par with Zeppelin's others, and thus is another essential listen.
