Led Zeppelin – ‘Houses of the Holy’

Release Date
Atlantic Records
Hard Rock

This morning in the Metal Digest office, we’re blasting out ‘Houses of the Holy’, the 1973 album from Led Zeppelin. Sandwiched between ‘IV’ and ‘Physical Graffiti’ and containing an album cover featuring little children’s bottoms, ‘Houses of the Holy’ is a bit of an anomaly. On the one hand, it has some great tunes, ‘The Ocean’, ‘The Song Remains the Same’ and ‘No Quarter’, but its also saddled with meandering bilge like ‘The Crunge’ and ‘D’yer Mak’er’, because everyone needs a cod-reggae in 1973 in regards to the latter. Luckily, those better tracks easily eclipse the others. So this morning, crank up the volume of ‘Houses of the Holy’ and hide that cover away from the Facebook police lest you be arrested.
