Led Zeppelin: Led Zeppelin II (Atlantic)
John Mendelsohn, Rolling Stone, 13 December 1969
Hey, man, I take it all back! This is one fucking heavyweight of an album! OK – I'll concede that until you've listened to the album eight hundred times, as I have, it seems as if it's just one especially heavy song extended over the space of two whole sides. But, hey! You've got to admit that the Zeppelin has their distinctive and enchanting formula down stone-cold, man. Like, you get the impression they could do it in their sleep.
