Led Zeppelin IV (1971) Led Zeppelin

Songs Included:

Black Dog

Rock and Roll

The Battle of Evermore

Stairway to Heaven

Misty Mountain Hop

Four Sticks

Going to California

When the Levee Breaks

 

This is the most popular Led Zeppelin album of all time and rightly so. Led Zeppelin IV is the quintessential rock and roll album, with a near psychotic experimental sound, incredible guitar riffs, and strong drums. Led Zeppelin’s progressive rock and roll is exemplified in this album, with genre-expansive pieces such as Stairway to Heaven and The Battle of Evermore.

Favorite song: When the Levee Breaks

Rating: 5/5 stars

        This is Childish Gambino’s most recent album which has gained popularity from it’s most famous song “Redbone”. This album is filled with funk-style beats with vocals coming from Childish himself. Many of the songs are layered with synth vocal and beats that can give you chills. Overall, I a big fan of this album! The songs are on the slower side but are still very good to groove to.
