Various Artists - The Music Remains The Same (Tribute To Led Zeppelin)
Locomotive Music have discovered the magic of tribute albums, so it seems, after BARON ROJO now LED ZEPPELIN. And there we have the first problem in itself, because I never ever have liked LED ZEPPELIN and most probably never will, apart from a cover version here or there (like PAGAN's "Immigrant Song", FAR CORPORATION's "Stairway To Heaven").

Now there is a whole bunch of cover-versions and as I had already expected, I don't get warm with this compilation, even though I have to acknowledge that Locomotive have really chosen the participating bands with care and many of them are staying close enough to preserve the spirit of the songs, but manage to transfer them into their sound as well.

On the up-side I could name PRIMAL FEAR, ANGRA, TIERRA SANTA or also MÄGO DE OZ, while there also are some that either are too close to the original or fail to do the song justice, yet that again might only be me again and my dislike for LED ZEPPELIN, I don't know...

As objective as I can be about this, this is a worthy tribute to one of the greatest Rock bands that fans of the ZEP definitely should dig. (Online January 11, 2002)
