Led by their charismatic lead singer and innovative guitar player, Led Zeppelin, founded in the late sixties, rose to enormous fame during the seventies; for unwilling to conform to the rock and roll standards set by the infamous Beatles, Led Zeppelin attracted the attention of those young adults who did not enjoy the Beatles who at times sounded more like a boy band then a rock and roll band. By expressing all of their emotions in their music, Led Zeppelin quickly gained attention; however, they would forever be overshadowed by the success of their untitled fourth album. Including hits like “Stairway to Heaven,” “Black Dog,” and “Rock and Roll,” Led Zeppelin’s fourth album easily sold millions of records and became and instant classic. Although Led Zeppelin’s fourth album earned its status as a classic, rock album, the all encompassing sound found on Physical Graffiti, their sixth album, defines the ability of the band to play any type of rock and roll song. After having a sojourn in the Middle-East, Led Zeppelin used their cultural experience to write some of their most creative and inspiring work; however, in addition the eclectic songs inspired by the Middle-East, Led Zeppelin includes several astonishingly successful standard rock songs for which they became famous. By demonstrating their ability to write successful songs outside of the rock classics for which they became famous, Led Zeppelin reinforces its distinction as a superior rock and roll band; therefore, Physical Graffiti is a classic album with superb craftsmanship despite people’s willingness to ignore it.
