    Led Zeppelin's most shamefully underrated album

    Zep's "Presence" is the absolute underdog in their catalog. Upon first few listens, the album sounds startlingly unfinished. But as time passes on, that weakness becomes a major strength. The shorter songs may not rock as much as one would wish; in fact, those songs have more in common with funk than rock. But go into "Presence" for the epics: if you're not completely blown away by the proto-thrash of "Achilles' Last Stand", the paranoid desperation of "For Your Life", the messy self-loathing of "Nobody's Fault But Mine" and the bluesy despair of "Tea for One", you're really missing what Led Zeppelin's all about.

    Nice album to round out the power years

    Although this album is not their best, it sure does pack a punch. The bonus disk is nice to have as an addendum to the album proper and great to have for the minimal extra cost. Despite the well known tracks being the usual favorites, I prefer the last track "Tea For One" over the others. To me, this is a very underrated and much overlooked track. It's bluesy (to a point) but subtly dreamy as well, especially the slight fade out, fade back part. This album is worth the price as a re-mastered album alone but with the bonus disk, it's a must-have for anyone who enjoys a very nice '70's album.

    May be one of the most under-valued albums in Led Zep's catalog. This is one of the funkier and stripped-down albums by the band. Just guitars, bass, drums, vocals, and some harmonica with little, if any, keyboards on the original 7 tracks. There's a second CD of interesting demos and different takes of the original songs, as well as, some previously unreleased tracks. Jimmy Page oversaw the remastering process himself.

    Beyond the weirdly-titled but lovely instrumental "10 Ribs & Carrot Pod Pod -" (!?!?), the bonus disk gives you more subtle alternative mixes. Like those on the previous album reissues, these grew on me with repeated listens. Hear Robert Plant snort in this version of "For Your Life." And is it actually him on the weird alternate vocal for "Royal Orleans"? Need more song info in liner notes.

    Great album, but For Your Life sounded odd..

    I'm a huge Zeppelin fan and after hearing how awesome a remastered ACDC album sounded, decided to get the new Zeppelin records. This album is fantastic but I was confused at sound of 'For Your Life'-- it's not the way I remember it. The bass seemed waaay too loud and the guitar part was just a shadow. Rest of the album was fantastic. 3 Stars just for the remaster.

    Great album. Some good extras. My problem with the Zeppelin releases in general is that they need to take a bit more care when packaging these. I've had no problems with playback on any, but I have had several of the remastered discs with surface scuffs, and minor dings in the CD material. Otherwise it's all good!

    A reissue of the last great Led Zep album

    This reissue of Presence is part of the last round of Zeppelin reissues along with Coda and In Through The Out Door. At times, Presence can be even heavier than Physical Graffiti, but one of the extra tracks (the instrumental 10 Ribs & All/Carrot Pod Pod) shows a jazzier side.

    The Zeppelin remasters have been fantastic thus far and this one does not disappoint! The tracks sound fantastic, and the bonus disc with the demos and alternate mixes is really cool to hear. If you are a Led Zeppelin fan, this album is a must have!
