Houses of the Holy (Remastered) Tracklist:
I know people don't do this these days, but play this as an album, song after song and you will not only really enjoy every single song, you might actually be amazed!!! No one makes music like this💯
This is one of my personal favorite Led Zeppelin albums. This album has a great flow, track after track. Also, this album has great vocals, great drum solos, and great guitar solos as well. Finally, the instruments wrap around the vocals like no other, and intertwine perfectly. Definitely looking forward to the next limited play album, and extended play album from Led Zeppelin.
69' to 73', forget bout' it ! There whole career, really. The songs, albums are second to none. At a time when The Who, Kinks, Stones, doors and other classics. Zep Led the the way ! You can talk concept alblum, or you can just talke all time Greats. Funny how houses of Holy song didn't even make it on this ablum, and ended up on physical Graffitti. Stack these guys up with anyone when it comes to first to 5th, and tell me anyone's else's first 5 where better then these guys. Long live Zepp
Some may put The Fourth Album as their best, or maybe even LZ1 or 2, but Houses of the Holy is truly their best, along with Physical Graffiti. Why? Because they experiment with different genres, From funk to reggae to acoustic to even their style of hard rock. Let’s rank their songs The song remains the same- Very good, even with Plant’s helium vocals. 8.0/10 The rain song- a depressing, boring song IMO but still, not bad- 6.9/10 Over the Hills and Far Away- no wonder it’s played frequently on classic rock stations like WXRD 103.9, it’s just so good!- 9.4/10 The Crunge- surprisingly enjoyable, despite what other fans say. Hilarious!- 8.2/10 Dancing days- a rather good tune. :)- 8.8/10 Dyer maker-my favorite song off this album because, you know, it’s fun!- 9.8/10 No quarter- it’s good it’s good it’s good- 7.3/10 The ocean- see “The song remains the same”. 9.2/10 So, good album. 9.9/10
What a musical masterpiece. Zep had always incorporated various music influences in their music but this album really was a sonic adventure that only they could deliver…just listen with headphones, close your eyes, and let yourself go…you won’t regret it. This and II are their best albums. It also my opinion that Page’s greatest riff is the one in “No Quarter”. Just my two cents.
I have had this album in all forms from 8 track to cassette; vinyl of course, to CD. aND, Now, I own it in all its resplendent digital glory. This album plays like a fairy tale! There is nothing here that isn't worthy of timeless admiration. I've listened to this album ever since I first heard it play on the radio back in '73 (I was 10) and it still evokes a deep emotional response, every time. The Rain Song, literally, makes me cry. What beautiful wizardry these Zeppelin boys were into. Look, I can't say it enough.....BUY THIS ALBUM!!!!!
The best Led Zeppelin album (in my opinion). Period! Over the Hills and Far Away: One of the most underrated great songs in rock (and my all-time favorite Led Zeppelin song). Listening to Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones riffing lock-step on The Song Remains the Same (don't get me started about JPJ, Zeppelin's and Rocks most secret weopon): Simply awesome The Rain Song: Sublime! The Ocean: One of the coolest songs in rock. And the rest of the album: No song acts as filler. Sandwiched between Led Zeppelin IV and Physical Graffiti, it often gets overlooked, but read the revues: Most Zeppelin fans consider it their favorite or one of their favorite Led Zeppelin albums. Buy It.
This is probably my favorite album ever. I’m 15, and almost all of the music I listen to was introduced to me by my Dad. Led Zeppelin is my favorite band and I love their earlier stuff but I like this album the best. Why can’t music be like this today? Today buying a full album is usually pointless because only one or two songs are actually decent, but albums like this one contain legendary pieces of music with riffs that you will attach yourself to. Every song on this album is great, just do yourself a favor and buy this album.
This album from I've read has a lot of the band's most well-known songs and the majority of my favorites are on this album! My top favorite from this album will always be No Quarter because of John Paul Jones's piano playing! But then every song on this album is AMAZING!
Well other bands have gotten flak for experimenting with other music then their main genre led zeppelin made an absolute masterpiece. With almost every song being a different genre, every song still sounded like amazing hard rock zeppelin, (standouts songs being:The whole album start to finish)
Contender for top stranded on a deserted Island album. The forays into funk and reggae are the weakest moments, but even they are interesting and entertaining. The rest is pure Zeppelin magic made at their creative peak,
Every song is great (especially the rain song) except for the crunge and dancing days. Also there was alot more hiss on this album than if you were to listen to the same songs on "The Complete Led Zeppelin" but it doesnt ruin the awsomeness of any of the songs. Buy it.
On balance there are several different genres covered on this album . Have to put it in #1 considering all of the songs are solid on their own , put together they really cover a lot of ground.
It seems like this album doesn't get enough praise. It is definitely different than the previous Zeppelin albums. But for a change it is very well made. I will admit that the vocals are not as good as the previous albums. But that is really the only flaw. I really love this album, it is my 2nd favorite Zeppelin album. It is almost as good as Led Zeppelin 2 (which is my favorite).
I listened to this album all the way through for the first time and I must say, this was MY BEST PURCHASE EVER! THIS IS NOW MY FAVORITE ALBUM! And I have a feeling it will stay that way for a very long time. The album is flawless
When i hear magnus opus and led zeppelin in the same sentence i think Houses of the Holy. This album is perfect, it captures all genres. Funk, pop, progressive, folk, soft rock, heavy metal, reggae. Over the Hills and Far Away is the greatest masterpeice ever made. Period
I could keep rediscovering this album forever. Lost between Zoso and Physical Graffiti, this album reminds me of how balanced this band was and how they are better as a whole than individuals.
