22 Songs, 2 Hours 4 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Twenty-three months after Houses of the Holy came Led Zeppelin’s most ambitious project: Physical Graffiti, a double album featuring eight new compositions of unusual complexity alongside seven songs the band hadn’t finished for previous albums. Highlights are everywhere: the Eastern-influenced “Kashmir,” a masterpiece of tension and release; “Houses of the Holy,” “Sick Again,” and “Trampled Under Foot,” rockers with demanding grooves; “In My Time of Dying,” an intense 11-minute blues; and “Bron-Yr-Aur,” a gentle, bucolic acoustic instrumental. The deluxe edition adds seven bonus tracks: early mixes and versions that further explore the unique chemistry that made Led Zeppelin both feared and admired.

Another letdown

Maybe adding some live material would have sweetened the deal...I wish Page wouldn't repackage what's already out there. A classic album nonetheless.

Why make it deluxe?

I understand there are a couple remixes on the album, but honestly...not that different than the original. I mean, listening to PG on vinyl was the greatest, listeing to it on CD was great, listening to the new deluxe version is ok. Nobody needs it, it's just kind of here now. The hardcore fans were disappointed that there were no live or bonus material, the new fans are going to buy it because they need someplace to start, and casual fans like me are going to wonder why someone would pay $15 for the same, wonderful album that I can get at a record store for $7.
Great album, near pointless remaster.

Purging the vault?

Hopefully there is enough new material to warrant a $15.99 purchase as anyone who appreciates Zeppelin already has the original release.An isolated drum track on Kashmir would have been enough for me.
