Remastered re-release of the fourth full-length studio album by legendary British Blues/Hard Rock band.
The untitled fourth studio album, commonly known as "Led Zeppelin IV". After the band's previous album "Led Zeppelin III" received lukewarm reviews from critics, band decided their fourth album would officially be untitled, and would be represented instead by four symbols chosen by each band member, without featuring the name or any other details on the cover.
Encompassing Heavy Metal, Folk, pure Rock & Roll, and Blues, this album is a monolithic record, defining not only Led Zeppelin, but the sound and style of '70s Hard Rock. Led Zeppelin fuse their majestic Hard Rock with a mystical, rural English Folk, that gives the record an Epic scope. At its basic, the album has a grand sense of drama, which is only deepened by Robert Plant's burgeoning obsession with mythology, religion, and the occult. Plant's mysticism comes to a head on the eerie Folk ballad "The Battle of Evermore", a mandolin-driven song with haunting vocals from Sandy Denny, and on the epic "Stairway to Heaven". Of all of Zeppelin's songs, "Stairway to Heaven" is the most famous, and not unjustly. Building from a simple fingerpicked acoustic guitar to a storming torrent of guitar riffs and solos, it encapsulates the entire album in one song. Which, of course, isn't discounting the rest of the album. "Going to California" is the band's best Folk song, and the rockers are endlessly inventive, whether it's the complex, multi-layered "Black Dog", the pounding Hippie satire "Misty Mountain Hop", or the Funky riffs of "Four Sticks". But the closer, "When the Levee Breaks", is the one song truly equal to "Stairway to Heaven", helping give "IV" the feeling of an Epic. An apocalyptic slice of urban Blues, "When the Levee Breaks" is as forceful and frightening as Zeppelin ever got, and its seismic rhythms and layered dynamics illustrate why none of their imitators could ever equal them.
In 2003, the album was ranked number 69 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of "The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time", which described it as "the peak of Seventies Hard Rock". The album was a commercial and critical success and is Led Zeppelin's best-selling, shipping over 37 million copies worldwide as of 2014. In 2016, Classic Rock Magazine ranked "Led Zeppelin IV" as the greatest of all Led Zeppelin albums. As of 2018, it is tied for third-highest-certified album in the US by the Recording Industry Association of America at 23× Platinum.
