Well spotted, fellow listener!

That's what I just did, and it's still an 8.

Agreed. 
I always wonder- The guy has the voice, and his reputation allows him to tour with some great musicians, yet consistently releases this kind of mindless drivel. Its sad really. He got away with it back in the day and still does. 
Somebody please! Give this guy a song!

And who failed to tell the producer the intentional addition of the sound of "vintage" pops and scratches was in good taste here? Its not.

I'd say- If the voice and name weren't recognizable and the artist were relatively unknown, the average rating would likely drop significantly.

Reminds me of the Stones' Factory Girl form Beggars Banquet.

Here's something I did yesterday....based on RP's recent play of a selected piece of Beck's latest Colors I wandered around to Amazon and was about to buy it.  Hell, I did buy it.  Unusual for me because I'm not really a Beck fan, but his recent release perked my ears, and I'm nothing if not interesting in listening to new stuff sooooo.... 

But in that wandering I saw this and thought...hmmmmm....might be interesting so I bought it without having heard nary a tune.  RP confirms, with this tune, that this might not be anywhere near as stupid as it sounds like it could be.  I should receive both CD's today so I guess you know some of what I will be listening to going into 2018? 

Happy New Year everyone!

Saw Robert a couple of nights ago here in Manchester, he had Seth Lakeman playing violin with him.  Fantastic show and great musicians.  Was lucky to be in front row and had a very very good time.  Highly recommend anyone to go and hear a nice clear audio especially for a concert  - nice and clear and the musicians were out of this world.  Great night and one i will remember for a long time..... along with Steven Wilson, Great Audio.... They really do care what we hear.

i kinda like this... will need a few more listens to know if i like it because Robert Plant's voice is burned into my soul (thanks to a serious teenage LZ obsession) or if i like it on its own merits.

I can't really speak to the music, never having been much of a LZ fan, other than it's ok. Glad anyone is making music, whenever. But I mostly just want to costume the heck outta Mr. Plant. So much cape 'n sword work to be done with this one.

Not sure if you've heard the massive amount or work he's done over the years, and the incredibly varied kinds of music he's done. I don't like all of it, but have a ton of respect for a guy with such a work ethic and talent.

I must say, Robert Plant's recent work has been very impressive. The Vegas Style shtick and the Jimmy Page thievery is long gone but the voice remains and the man has matured and, I dare say, even innovate.

France is like that!  You nailed the Pont more than perfectly.  No need to be a French aficionado or an admirer of impossibly stubborn airships to get how to approach making a judgment regarding the art of what's old news staying news.  Classic rock as Literature.  Try that with the lyrics coming from the world hit wonderment-less among the Franklin Generation by headcount comparatively.  I'll give young rappers and some country artists a break tho, for a handful have served as the sort of undertoe that catches the biggest fish off guard by sheer talent being clearly evident without the Branding effort of the greedy, rabid canine exclusively self appointed Musik Industrie Markt Magi.  Sort of forges a new paradigm for "Minding the Gap."  The Achievement One!

I love Led Zeppelin but this is horrible.  Robert Plant as a solo artist used to be 'meh' but now he's 'Change the station! Change the station!'.  Sorry.

Once again Robert Plant delivers.  Sounds great.

Sounds a little Battle of Evermore-ish, but still a great groove! Yeah, we'd all love to hear him belt, but he still has good feel, and a great band.
