Houses Of The Holy
Released - March 28, 1973 , Atlantic Records. Produced by
Another super LP put out by LZ. Not as heavy as some of their others but still packs a punch! The opening song, "Song Remains the Same," is metal, that's for sure, and Jimmy Page's guitars are on fire. "Rain Song" then slows the album down some but it picks up again with "Over the Hills and Far Away". "The Crunge" has an almost funky beat to it thanks to John Paul Jones' synthesizer. Plus how about "D'Yer Mak'er" (title pronounced as: "Did-Ya-Make-Her"), yeah that's a reggae beat but not like you ever heard it before this song played. As usual the band plays brilliantly through this album, this one's a keeper!
