    Great remastering but would have loved 5.1

    Great album. The classic. I think my only disappointment is they didn't go back to the original tracks and do a 5.1 mix on a blu ray or DVD. I always thought it was incredible to hear Plant and Sandy Denny together. (She was so underrated in her short life).At first listen, it doesn't sound as if the remaster succumbed to the loudness wars that many of the remastering jobs have fallen prey to (even the Beatles 2009 remasters). For those who do not know what this is....it sprang out of the hip hop/rap artists wanting their albums to be louder and have more bass so they would use more compression and limiting until all the true dynamics were taken away. Many artists fell victim to it because it became au courant. Bonham's kit seems to be as powerful as ever and too much limiting would have destroyed the sound of the kit. Overall Page and his mastering engineer did a great job and it sounds as if they did a little sidechaining (that is a process where an mastering engineer compresses a certain frequency range or two to make an instrument come out a bit more in a final mix even though they are only dealing with a stereo mix and rarely have the original tapes. Those tapes probably would need to be baked being over forty five years old to get a decent digital transfer if a re-mix were attempted. The acoustic stuff sounds particularly grand and BLACK DOG......PHEW! Fantastic!

    Led Zeppelin Classic

    LZIV is LZ's best album hands down and one of my favorite rock albums of all time with 5 of their all time classics: Black Dog, Rock And Roll, Mist Mountain Hop, When The Levee Breaks, and of course the epic Stairway To Heaven. Of all the bands of the early 70s like LZ, Deep Purple and Black Sabbath that set the tone for all the heavy metal and hard rock acts that follow, LZ was the leader and this album is another testament to that legacy.

    This is Led Zeppelin at their peak. EVERY TRACK IS GOOD! This is the album that inspired legends like Aerosmith, Metallica, Van Halen etc (Giants). It contains "Stairway to Heaven" considered one of the greatest songs of all time. Which is in an Eternal battle with Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody for greatest song. A classic that should be in every collection.Black Dog/Rock and Roll/Battle of Evermore/Stairway to Heaven THAT IS SIDE 1 !!!!!!

    I've been filling out my album collection and really enjoyed the clean transfer that retained some of the warmth normally associated with vinyl. the inclusion of the liner notes and original art was a nice addition. The packaging further added to the vinyl feel.

    Been a fan of Led Zepplin for a very long time! Saw them in concert back in 1977. Many of these songs were part of the "Song Remains the Same" tour that year. Was surprised to see it for sale at Best Buy. Price was good. Rock On!

    Whats there to say about this album that hasn't already been said? This is Led Zeppelin at their peak. If you like rock & roll even a little bit, you're bound to enjoy this album. Timeless record even all these years later.

    After having owned this album on several different forms of media( album/cassette/CD) over the last 30 plus years is was reluctant to buy it once more. Best Buy a made it easy thanks to their low prices and convenient location.

    It's Zeppelin what more do you have to say? If you enjoy classic rock music and more importantly artist who actually can play instruments and possess true talent then this CD is for you.

    Purchased the vinyl version back in 1971. This is exactly the same recording as back then but with much better sound. I would highly recommended this to a friend unless they don't like Led Zeppelin.

    This album strikes in all the right places. When paired with a proper sound system, there is no one better than Zep, with maybe the exception of Pink Floyd

    Best band ever. Their music is timeless and this album achieves showing how experimental they were musically as they continued to grow musically themselves.

    How can you go wrong with Jimmy Page re=mastering a classic album from the early 70's. I highly recommend Led IV for any music library

    Nuff said. Get your cds while you still can. At this point they are cheaper than a digital download.
