This album is the amazing follow up to their great debut album Led Zeppelin I. This album doesn't have as manyblues influenced songs, it has more hardrocker songs. Also, this album includes John Bonham's epic drum solo,Moby Dick. Jimmy Page adds some amazing guitar solo, that make thw album even greater. Each member of theband contributes to the album, which is why I think it is such a great album. This is also a great album to start with,if you want to start listening to Led Zeppelin. I think this album is just a little better than Led Zeppelin I.THE BANDRobert Plant : vocals, harmonicaJimmy Page : electric, acoustic, and pedal steel guitarJohn Paul Jones : Bass, organJohn "BONZO" Bonham : drums, tympaniTHE SONGS1.) Whole Lotta LoveThis song begins with an opening riff that I think everyone has heard at least once. The bass joins in, and Plant startssinging the first verse shortly after. Bonham joins in atthe beginning of the chorus, and continues throughout thesong. After the second singing of the chorus, the famous weird part of the song with all the synthesizer. This is theonly part of the song I'm not to fond of, I don't think it flows with song to good. This lasts for about a minute and

twenty seconds, Then Page starts his little solo inbetween the drum beats. Plant sings another verse, then he has hissolo where he just sings, while the rest of the bands quite. The song ends on Plant singing, while Bonham has somegreat fills. Overall, this song is a alltime classic, and is probably my second favorite song on the album. 5/52.) What Is And What Should Never BeThe song starts out with Plant singing, and the rest of the band playing a soft, mellow riff. The song gets a lot harderwhen the chorus starts, then mellows down again for the verses. After the second singing of the chorus, Page playsthe verse, and chorus as a solo. Plant sings one more verse. The song ends with a jam, while Plant sings, and thesong fades out. 4.5/53.) The lemon SongThis is the longest song on the album at 6:20, and this is kind of a jam song, which is kind of unique for the album.It starts off with the sound of a gong, and some fuzzy guitar in the background. Then, the rest of the band starts in.Page has some nice fills inbetween verses. After the second verse a real upbeat tone takes over, and Page has a good,fast-paced solo. After it's over the main riff starts back up again, and I think the transition back sounds really cool.Then, a the jam starts up with Page singing, Page with some more nice fills, and the bass is really prevelent duringthis part. Page has a solo, then then the upbeat riff starts up again. The song ends right after that's over. 5/54.) Thank YouThis is the softest song on the album, and is a nice song for a little break from the hard rocker that make up most of the album. It starts out with Page on the acoustic. During the verses JPJ plays organ while Page plays lightly in thebackdround. Binham joins back in during the chorus. then, Page has a little solo, that flows good with the song.Plant songs another two verses. The song ends on JPJ playing the organ, and the song slowly fades out. 4.5/55.) HeartbreakerThis is another one of the very recognizable Zeppelin songs, and is another one of the rockers on the album. It startsout with unmistakable riff that everyone knows. Inbetween the first and socond verses they play the opening rif overagain. after the second verse the best solo on the album begins, I think it's one of Page's most recognizable solos, andone of his best. Then the band joins in with the solo, which makes it even better. Plant sings one more verse, and thesong ends on Plant singing "heartbreaker". This is my favorite song on the album, and is one of the best rock songsof alltime. 5/56.) Living Loving Maid (She's just a Woman)This song starts right after Heartbreaker's over. It's the shortest song on the album at 2:40. The only thing I don't likeabout this song is it's to short. It's very upbeat, and has an awesome sounding riff. It has a little solo in the middle,that's pretty good. It's very catchy so if you listen to it, it will be stuck in your head all day. 4/57.) Ramble OnThis is a great song, with a very nice acoustic riff. Bonham taps softly on his drum that goes throughout the wholesong. The bassline to this song is also very good. Plants lyrics are very mystical, and magical, and tell of far off lands, which is what we hear a lot of times in his lyrics. The music picks up, and gets a little harder during thechorus. Page has some very nice fills inbetween verses, that the song even better. It fades out on Plant yelling thelast of the words, with the band playing in the background. 5/58.) Moby Dick This is the epic drum solo by John Bonham. Plant doesn't sing at all in this song, and is one of only a fewinstrumentals by Zeppelin. At the beginning Page plays some guitar, and adds some very nice fills. Then Bonzotakes the cake with this awesome solo, which is amazing live. He plays some bongos that sound very good, and inthe movie The Song Remains the Same he plays his drumset with his hands which is pretty cool. The solo goes fromsoft to loud, and from slow to fast many times times. Then, at the end Page comes in again, and where Page had hisfills at the beginning of the song, where bonham plays some great fills. 5/59.) Bring it on HomeThe riff at the beginning sounds very folky, and Plants voice is very raspy. Plant also plays some good harmonica.
