Lay down in sweet surrender
Your love so warm & tender

Oh, sweet surrender, now
So warm & tender, now

Oh-oh-oh
Ohhh

Inside my waves are breaking
Oh! Light of my salvation

Oh, my waves are breaking now
Ooh, sweet salvation now

Oh-oh-oh
Ohhh

Out here the frei still burning
So long into my night...
Still captive and still yearning
Surrender to your light...

A heart that never falters
A love that never dies
I linger in the shadows
The dimming of my light...

(Oh!)

The dimming of my light...
The dimming of my light...
The dimming of my light...
The dimming of my light...

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!

Would you mean go long or go weh!?!  Viv le Plan d'Rober ½ tt dose in the whole 2
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. 
Procedure for accurately rating Robert Plant tunes! :
1. Listen to song.
2. Rate what you heard. 1-10 
3.Subtract 5 from that number to allow for the fact that you tripped on Robert.

 
This lad will go far...

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.
Je préfère Factory girl des Rolling stones
Already sounds better then the last couple..
I really like this one. Gets me all groovy.

Well it's not exactly the Robert Plant I most like to hear, but hey..

Don't be alarmed now,
It's just a spring clean for the May Queen.


Excellent album, but it may a few spins before it grows up on you. Give it some time, you.'ll be glad you did.


If it weren't for his tenure with the great Led Zeppelin, this famedom-clinging has-been would not be played at all imho.  He has nothing new to offer.
Erm ...  not for me, thanks.  Sorry, fans.
you go young man!!!
