Remastered re-release of the second full-length album by the legendary British Hard Rock/Blues/Heavy Metal band.
Recorded quickly during Led Zeppelin's first American tours, "Led Zeppelin II" provided the blueprint for all the Heavy Metal bands that followed it. Since the band could only enter the studio for brief amounts of time, most of the songs that compose "II" are reworked Blues and Rock & Roll standards that the band was performing on-stage at the time. Not only did the short amount of time result in a lack of original material, it made the sound more direct. Jimmy Page still provided layers of guitar overdubs, but the overall sound of the album is heavy and hard, brutal and direct. "Whole Lotta Love", "The Lemon Song" and "Bring It on Home" are all based on classic Blues songs - only, the riffs are simpler and louder and each song has an extended section for instrumental solos. Of the remaining six songs, two sport light acoustic touches ("Thank You", "Ramble On"), but the other four are straight-ahead Heavy Rock that follows the formula of the revamped Blues songs. With elements of Blues and Folk music, "Led Zeppelin II" also exhibits the band's evolving musical style of Blues-derived material and their guitar and riff-based sound. It has been described as the band's heaviest album.
While "Led Zeppelin II" doesn't have the eclecticism of the band's debut, it's arguably more influential. After all, nearly every one of the hundreds of Zeppelin imitators used this record, with its lack of dynamics and its pummeling riffs, as a blueprint.
"Led Zeppelin II" was the band's first album to reach number one in the UK and the US. In 1970, art director David Juniper was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Recording Package for the album. On 15 November 1999, it was certified 12× Platinum by the RIAA for sales in excess of 12000000 copies. Since its release, writers and music critics have regularly cited it in polls of the greatest and most influential Rock albums.
