The Principle Of Moments

All Music Guide - Mike DeGagne
Robert Plant's follow-up to Pictures at Eleven places much of his debut's style and vocal meandering into a new and more exciting bunch of songs. The mysteriousness of "Big Log," the album's first single, reached the Top 20 in the United States and in the U.K., while "In the Mood" is The Principle of Moments' finest offering, proving that Plant could roam freely with his voice and still have it work effectively. But Plant doesn't stop here, as he gives tracks like "Wreckless Love," "Stranger Here...Than Over There," and "Other Arms" an equal amount of curt abstractness and rock appeal. Because Plant's voice is so compelling in any state, the convolution of his writing ...

But Plant doesn't stop here, as he gives tracks like "Wreckless Love," "Stranger Here...Than Over There," and "Other Arms" an equal amount of curt abstractness and rock appeal. Because Plant's voice is so compelling in any state, the convolution of his writing tends to take a back seat to his singing in most of his solo work, which is definitely the case in most of the songs here. Plant went on tour with the Honeydrippers within the same year as The Principle of Moments' release, adding another facet to his already diverse solo repertoire. [The 2007 reissue includes live versions of three songs from the album ("In the Mood," "Thru' With the Two Step" and "Lively Up Yourself'") and the previously unreleased "Turnaround" as bonus tracks.]

    Certainly his best solo effort

    This album, much better than his previous solo album, surpasses everything he's done since. While he's made some very good songs on subsequent albums, no entire album is as enjoyable as a whole. The obscurity of his lyrics only adds strength to the album is it lets you interpret the songs differently each time. Quite good, although 'Stranger Here....Than Over There' "borrows" heavily from 'Valentine Day' from Paul McCartney's 1970 album 'McCartney'
