Listening to this for the first time since I was one of the "born in the wrong generation rock is the only good genre" kids.
After that phase, I started thinking that Led Zeppelin is overrated. And my judgement still stands.

Whole Lotta Love, Heartbreaker, Ramble On and Moby Dick are good, catchy rock songs. But, the Led Zeppelin aesthetics have not aged well. I get tired by half of the record.

It's rare that any artistic effort reaches the heights of an album such as Led Zeppelin II. This is a legendary artist in their prime, with each musician at their most elite, firing on all cylinders and collaborating seamlessly. Interpolating their own compositions with those of blues legends Willie Dixon and Howlin' Wolf makes for an unflinching rock sound that's yet to be equaled, as raw as it is pure.
