Led Zeppelin - Presence

edited December 2020 in Led Zeppelin Albums

The first 10 minutes of Zeppelin's Presence are among the band's most explosive work. But that's all thanks to one song, the monstrous "Achilles Last Stand," a 10-minute track as monumental as its title suggests. Unfortunately, Presence goes immediately downhill from there, as it transitions into the clunky and disjointed "For Your Life," as if the band spent all its energy on "Achilles." And it never recaptures that momentum—something with which even listeners seemed to agree, as this was Zeppelin's lowest-selling album of it entire active career.
