Each week fans tune in to That Metal Show to see Eddie, Jim and Don weigh-in and argue about such important subjects as Who Are Metal’s Top 5 Hired Guns or What Are The Top 5 Rush Albums? For season 12 we’re moving the debate online and letting you, the fans, make your voices heard in our weekly TMS Top 5 polls. This week we asked the boys to help rank the Top 5 studio albums of one of the greatest bands in rock n’roll history, Led Zeppelin.
Over the course of 8 records the English 4-piece combined blues, hard rock and folk elements into one mighty, mysterious and musical stew that helped lay the ground work for heavy metal and continues to influence artists and sell records to this very day. What’s your favorite Zeppelin album? Is it the early atomic blues of Led Zeppelin I? The landmark Led Zeppelin IV, which contains the ultimate classic radio staple of all-time, “Stairway To Heaven”? Or do you prefer the stylistic diversity and crushing hard rock of their epic double album Physical Graffiti?
Check out the boys picks on the following pages and go to the end to vote in our poll and let us know your favorite Zep albums and help us determine the best of their best. You can vote as many times for as many different albums as you like and don’t forget to check back every week for more TMS Top 5 countdowns and watch That Metal Show on VH1 Classic every Saturday night at 11/10C!
