  Aqualung (album) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
It is a concept album only in so much as the first side of the LP vinyl record seems to be concerned with the same character, Aqualung.
The album was one of the first albums to be recorded at the newly opened Island Studios in Basing Street, London.
Led Zeppelin were mixing their untitled fourth album at the same time.

 Encyclopedia: Four Symbols   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
The fourth album released by the British blues/rock band Led Zeppelin is variously referred to as "Four Symbols", "Led Zeppelin IV", "Runes", "Sticks", "Zoso" (after the approximate shape of the symbols used as a title), or even "untitled." Indeed it has no official title.
The album remains a perennial favorite on classic rock radio, and features "Stairway to Heaven", widely recognized as one of the greatest rock music songs ever recorded.
Despite the immense popularity of "Stairway to Heaven", which received heavy AOR radio rotation in the early 1970s, and remains one of the most popular rock songs of all time, the song was never officially released as a single and thus it was never seen on the Billboard charts.

 Led Zeppelin
Shortly after their first tour, the group's first eponymous album was released in 1969.
The band's varying musical tendencies were fused on the untitled fourth album, which is usually called either "Zoso", "Four Symbols", or just "Led Zeppelin IV".
After a decade of recording and touring, the band was now considered a dinosaur in some quarters, as mainstream musical tastes had moved in favour of disco and critical focus had turned to punk rock.

 Led Zeppelin IV - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The fourth album released by the British blues/rock band Led Zeppelin is variously referred to as Led Zeppelin IV, Four Symbols, Runes, Sticks, Zoso (after the first character or symbol used in the title), Four, or even Untitled.
These symbols are the official title of the album, and Atlantic Records initially distributed graphics of the symbols in many sizes to the press for inclusion in charts and articles.
The album was the first to be produced without conventional identification, and this communicated an anti-commercial stance that was controversial at the time (especially among certain executives at Atlantic).

 LED ZEPPELIN FOURTH ALBUM
And on the second album Robert had written 'Thank You', which he wanted to write as a tribute to his wife, and his lyrics were getting better and better and better, which was perfect for me, because I really wanted to concentrate more on the music and on the constructions.
No, we knew we'd done some good work on it, we knew it was a good album, as I say, in the light of all the knocking that we'd had generally all along the line from the press and all that.
And you'll see this little character on the album, and the whole thing is that he's on the top of the mountain, and there's this person who is aspiring towards him, but he's way, way down, and it's a long ascent.

Encompassing heavy metal, folk, pure rock and roll, and blues, Led Zeppelin's untitled fourth album is a monolithic record, defining not only Led Zeppelin but the sound and style of '70s hard rock.
Also known as the "rune" album or Zoso because of the medieval symbols adorning the inner sleeve, Led Zeppelin's fourth album, released in 1971, turned them from mere superstars into giant behemoths of the rock world.
But the softer, folk-rock side of Zeppelin proved to be equally influential, and it was the band's fourth album that achieved the finest balance between bucolic strums and ear-smashing bombast.

 Black Dog (song) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
It was released as a single in the US and Australia with Misty Mountain Hop on the B-side, and reached #15 on Billboard and #11 in Australia.
He called it "waking up the army of guitars"—which are multitrack recorded in unison with electric bass guitar to provide the song's signature riff.
He wanted to try "electric blues with a rolling bass part." The start-and-stop a capella verses were inspired by Fleetwood Mac's 1969 song, "Oh Well." Only towards the end of the song when numerous vocal "ah ah ah ah"s occur does Robert Plant sing at the same time as Page and the band play.

Some high-profile musicians insist that the album -- not the song -- is the be-all of pop music, and they argue that fans shouldn't be able to carve random pieces off an album any more than readers should be able to buy one chapter of a book.
Album sales have dropped 20 percent since 2000, according to Nielsen SoundScan, and all eyes are fixed on new digital music shops such as Musicmatch, BuyMusic and Apple's iTunes, which has sold more than 25 million songs since it started in April.
Though the album may be faltering, the pay-to-download sites account for a small percentage of all music sold, and most musicians still plot their careers in terms of albums, not songs.

 Fourth album 'keeps' Guster fans listening
When it comes to music, for me at least, there are multiple ways to interpret whether or not a new album is worthy of being considered one of my favorites.
Notably I would let the album flow from its beginning, starting with the spectacular opening track, "Diane", through track six, "Ramona." This is quite possibly one of the most musically diverse offerings in Guster's small catalog.
This song put the album on the map so to speak and -- while it's not one of my personal favorites -- it does tend to grow on a listener.

It just so happened that the first album I gave a shot on the turntable was their untitled fourth album.
The blues continues with an in-your-face 12-bar number, "Rock And Roll," and it completes the album with the plodding "When The Levee Breaks," a number that is driven by Bonham's snare and bass drums.
The drawback to releasing an album this good is that it's bound to get overplayed on the radio -- and this particular album, to some, has overstayed its welcome.

Some albums are simply collections of songs; others grow over time to personify entire genres of music.
By the time it went into the studio to record this, its fifth album, the four-year-old band had already been through two guitarists and two keyboard players.
Buoyed by this breakthrough, the quintet took on a more ambitious goal: to burst the very boundaries of their chosen form, to catapult the music not mere minutes but miles out of the four-minute verse-chorus-verse box by crafting virtual rock and roll symphonies, complete with shifting, flowing movements and extended, virtuosic instrumental passages.

 indieville: review: lowbelly - the mysteriously untitled fourth album
The starter, "Grow Bug," starts the album off on an electronicized rock note, but the album quickly moves into "cartoon jazz" territory with "March of the Swingers," a surf-rock inspired clarinet-solo freak-out that will get your head bobbing.
The other tracks on this album, including the funky "With His Pointed Shoes" and the loose "Selected Grains" are also lots of fun, and Lowbelly sounds so great with their craft that it seems as if they were born for the jazz swung beat.
With a fantastic organ chord progression in the background, the song is exactly what you'd want to hear at a dimly-lit jazz club, sipping down space-age martinis with pimento-eyed olives floating in them.

 LED ZEPPLIN A HEAVY METAL TRIBUTE
Since their demise in 1980 with the death of drummer John Bonham, the band's legend has only grown, thanks to a carefully planned series of album re-issues and hundreds of hard-rock and heavy-metal bands who are still working from the quartet's blueprints.
The officially untitled fourth album (usually referred to for simplicity's sake as Led Zeppelin IV) contained "Stairway to Heaven," which would go on to become one of the most famous rock songs of all time.
The first result of the reunion was the 1994 Unledded album, a striking set of Eastern-tinged live recordings that included new Page-Plant compositions as well as compelling reworkings of songs from their Led Zeppelin days.

After using Roman numeration for their second and third albums, the band members specifically did not wish the next album release to be called Led Zeppelin IV.

 Led Zeppelin "The Album Reviews"
Page and Robert Plant were grounded also in British folk music and fascinated by mythology, Middle Earth fantasy, and the occult, as became increasingly evident from the band’s later albums (the fourth LP’s title is composed of four runic characters).
A song that builds from a folk-baroque acoustic setting to screaming heavy metal, "Stairway to Heaven," fittingly became the best-known Led Zeppelin song and a staple of FM airplay, although like most of the group’s "hits," it was never released as a single.
One result of this upgrade in certifications is that the group's untitled fourth album is now 17-times platinum, placing the 1971 blockbuster alongside Fleetwood Mac's "RUMOURS'' as the RIAA's fifth best-selling album of all time.
