Got this new in 2015 to see how the Led Zeppelin remasters fare, and simply because it was difficult to find a decent used copy priced lower than this version.

Apparently, Jimmy Page was going for 'fat vinyl warmth' on the bass when he did the hi-res digital remaster from which this pressing is derived, and it does show - while it's evidently a digital master and Bonham's drums don't have much of an analogue 'snap', the bass is nice, upfront and clear, if a little woolly due to the artificial warmth.

Unfortunately, this remaster suffers from having a muffled and rolled-off high end, worse on some songs than others, but the worst part is that it's a little too trebly for my taste. I swear - I've been listening to this pressing while going about my day and going up and down the stairs a few times. I would crank the volume knob a little lower every time I went downstairs, and every next time I returned to my stereo it seemed as if it's playing at the same volume as I had it set to earlier. Yes, even at lower levels, the treble is edgy and shrill, and it's a little too hard on the ears.

Combine this trebly EQ with the sometimes mushy soundstage, and Page's guitar solos and Plant's vocals sound unintelligible and distant, especially on the tracks that were taken from the Houses of the Holy sessions. Seriously, how can the almighty Mr. Page himself, of all people, undermine his own musical handiwork? This is definitely not how I want to hear my Zeppelin, but the weight of the bass frequencies still is a major redeeming factor - at least Bonzo and JPJ's driving rhythms are in full force!

Overall, not the most ideal representation of one of the best Led Zep albums, but if one can get over its flaws, it is what it is.

Quite frankly, the best part of this reissue is that it faithfully reproduces the elaborate packaging of the original 1975 vinyl, with the die-cut cover and all of the inserts intact.

The Pallas vinyl is mostly silent, if a little on the rumbly side, and with minor crackle in-between songs. I noticed some ugly, small light scratches on side 2 just today as I pulled this out for the first time in 2 years, but again, they're light and result in just minor ticks. The records are otherwise free of aberrations - I lucked out with this one given that I got it in the year of release, and that a host of problems seemed to be quite commonplace for the US Pallas pressings in the 2014-2015 LZ reissue campaign.

My copy's LP label indicates "Made in Germany" but matrix / runout is correct and all the info.
