We could argue, and many people have, as to whether Led Zeppelin I was better then Led Zeppelin II and why or why not. I’m simply going to note a couple of facts.

First, most people became aware of Led Zeppelin during their introduction to Led Zeppelin II and made the trip back to discover Led Zeppelin I.

Secondly, Led Zeppelin I is a much more Blues oriented album, and while white kids profess to love the Blues, they really don’t understand the Blues conceptually and must be educated in a backwards manner. That meaning, they usually discover the Blues because one of their favorite groups goes and puts out a rock song or album with some Blues overtones, and then these kids discover the Blues. So I see the initial outing by Led Zeppelin was too far into the Blues to be recognized by mainstream youth. And why shouldn’t they have had issues, it was this same thinking that forced apart the Yardbirds.

As to Led Zeppelin II, its a fine record. When I hear arguments from others about disliking over production in music, all I have to do is point to Led Zeppelin II as the finest overly produced record of all time. It's a great rocker, they’ve toned down their blues influences, and seem to have knocked the audience over with even more power. While strong and demanding, the album holds really sweet melodic melodies and hidden context of beauty. All of this beauty stands in complete paradox to the blasting of Jimmy’s guitar in the next second. They’ve continued with their sexual content, as all men will, being the driving force of their lives ... and I’m not judging here, that’s just the way it is.

This record feels somewhat lighter, the bottom having been lifted a bit without loosing any of it’s driving force and that force can be suggested with the smallest of guitar strums. Robert wails more then ever here [possibly as much as Jimmy's guitar], having found his stride, he now plays to the audience and his band mates while on stage.

If you’re not blown away by this record you’ve missed something along the way. There’s something here for everyone, Rock, Country, Soul, Blues, and hand clapping, finger popping jive. Dig it, “on and on and on ...”
