Houses of the Holy was a step away artistically for Led Zeppelin, as they adopted a more relaxed and loose sound throughout the album. Experimenting folky hooky riffs, loud blues rock aesthetics and even some reggae influences for good measure.
Initially the album received mixed-reviews but was commercial success and featured classics such as “Rain Song” “No Quarter and “Over The Hills and Far Away”. Despite the earlier mixed reviews the album has aged well artistically and has been included in many “Best Albums of All Time” Lists.
