AllMusic Review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Led Zeppelin returned from a nearly two-year hiatus in 1975 with the double-album Physical Graffiti,
their most sprawling and ambitious work. Where Led Zeppelin IV and Houses of the Holy integrated
influences on each song, the majority of the tracks on Physical Graffiti are individual stylistic workouts.
The highlights are when Zeppelin incorporate influences and stretch out into new stylistic territory, most
notably on the tense, Eastern-influenced “Kashmir.” “Trampled Underfoot,” with John Paul Jones’
galloping keyboard, is their best funk-metal workout, while “Houses of the Holy” is their best attempt at
pop, and “Down by the Seaside” is the closest they’ve come to country. Even the heavier blues — the 11-minute
“In My Time of Dying,” the tightly wound “Custard Pie,” and the monstrous epic “The Rover” —
are louder and more extended and textured than their previous work. Also, all of the heavy songs are on
the first record, leaving the rest of the album to explore more adventurous territory, whether it’s acoustic
tracks or grandiose but quiet epics like the affecting “Ten Years Gone.” The second half of Physical Graffiti
feels like the group is cleaning the vaults out, issuing every little scrap of music they set to tape
in the past few years. That means that the album is filled with songs that aren’t quite filler, but don’t
quite match the peaks of the album, either. Still, even these songs have their merits — “Sick Again” is
the meanest, most decadent rocker they ever recorded, and the folky acoustic rock & roll of “Boogie with
Stu” and “Black Country Woman” may be tossed off, but they have a relaxed, off-hand charm that Zeppelin
never matched. It takes a while to sort out all of the music on the album, but Physical Graffiti captures
the whole experience of Led Zeppelin at the top of their game better than any of their other albums.
