Consensus VIII: The Discography of Led Zeppelin
« on: February 08, 2016, 09:02:03 pm »
Previous.

I have decided to try a consensus experiment, in which the users rate an artist's albums (as simply stating bands would be too easy and doesn't account for periods of decline).

Basically, if you've heard a decent number tracks per album and feel confident that listening to the rest of the tracks would do little to shift your opinion either way (for example, listening to five tracks out of a nine track album), then I'd say you're qualified to rate said album. It would be optimal to have listened to the entire album, but I'll take exceptions for examples similar to the one I used. You all also get to list your favorite track from each album, too,  and the track per album with the most votes will be listed as the popular favorite track from that album.

And now, we begin with Led Zeppelin.

Led Zeppelin (1969): 100%
Consensus: The combined strengths of the rock virtuosos' impeccable instrumental skills, quotable lyrics, and indelible heavy sound culminated in Led Zeppelin's legendary first album - and the rest is history.
Best track: Good Times, Bad Times

J. Kashmir: +
Diego Tutweiller: +
No Name: +
Chase Nyland: +
John Tyler: +
Andrew Milito: +

Led Zeppelin II: 100%
Consensus: A nearly unprecedented display of consistency of quality and talent is on display with Led Zeppelin II, as listeners' ears are blessed with some of the group's best numbers. An undeniable step up from an incredible debut.
Best track: Whole Lotta Love

J. Kashmir: +
Diego Tutweiller: +
No Name: +
Chase Nyland: +
John Tyler: +
Andrew Milito: +

Led Zeppelin III: 100%
Consensus: Led Zeppelin retains its famous sound while also boasting a mostly unseen folk rock side with Led Zeppelin III, an album whose acoustic numbers are just as powerful as their heaviest.
Best track: Immigrant Song (Tentative)
J. Kashmir: +
Diego Tutweiller: +
No Name: +
Chase Nyland: +
Andrew Milito: +

Led Zeppelin IV: 100%
Consensus: It's almost too easy to make a case for Led Zeppelin's fourth album being their finest - but it's also wholly justifiable thanks to some of the band's most unique and memorable numbers. Also, Side 1 is great for making out.
Best track: All of them?
J. Kashmir: +
Diego Tutweiller: +
No Name: +
Chase Nyland: +
Andrew Milito: +

Houses of the Holy: 100%
J. Kashmir: +
Diego Tutweiller: +
No Name: +
Chse Nyland: +
Best track:

Physical Graffiti: 100%
Consensus: Led Zeppelin's first double album sees the band branching out further than previous efforts, and yielding work on the level that earned them their legendary reputation.
Best track: Kashmir
J. Kashmir: +
Diego Tutweiller: +
No Name: +
Chase Nyland: +
Andrew Milito: +

Presence:
J. Kashmir: (Less enthusiastic but still high) +
Diego Tutweiller: -
Chase Nyland: +
Best track:

In Through the Out Door:
J. Kashmir: (Less enthusiastic but still high) +
Diego Tutweiller: -
Chase Nyland: +
Best track:

Coda:
Diego Tutweiller: -
Chase Nyland: + (Assuming he's listened to Coda)
Best track:

Bonus Round - Notable live performances:

The Song Remains The Same:

How the West Was Won:
J. Kashmir: +

Listen to This, Eddie: (Yes, I'm including this solely for the fact that it has the best version of Achilles Last Stand there will ever be)

If it helps, I'm counting Traveling Riverside Blues as a song for Coda since it technically wasn't released until compilations and the remastered version of Coda.

Great choices for the best tracks.

I'm ashamed to admit I've never listened to their albums in full.
Everything is terrible.

And you should be. Go listen to their first six albums in full immediately.

...But I'll still let you rate an album if you've listened to a decent chunk of said album (But not less than four songs, I guess).

Hmm, I forgot about Traveling Riverside Blues. I only own the original version of Coda, so I always have to get that off YouTube if I want to hear it. But sure, if it counts, it's my choice.

My one regret is that I can't name more songs... Over the Hills and Far Away, Custard Pie, That's the Way, Babe I'm Gonna Leave You, Kashmir, The Battle of Evermore, and Bring it On Home all deserve at least some mention. Ah, well.

Yeah, it's challenging for me to choose just one song from the first six albums too.

Just do what we normally do for consensuses, but with Led Zeppelin albums you've either heard a decent chunk of (at least half) or in full. Also list your favorite track per album.

I've heard like one of their songs. I always got Led Zeppelin and Van Halen confused, no idea why.

Actually I have not heard any Led Zeppelin songs. At least I think I haven't.

Oh never mind I've definitely heard that one before. I just didn't know it was by Led Zeppelin. Good song.

Now, listen to the rest of the album that the song was from (Hint: It's Led Zeppelin I).

They've never recorded a bad song, let alone a bad album :)
