Robert Plant found a lucky charm, dressed it up with love, and crossed the Seven Seas to you.

"Will it be enough?"

Doesn't sound new to me -- sounds exactly like Robert Plant's songs have always sounded, but I like it. His voice has help up surprisingly well.

Well, if NPR, such a very current up-to-date source of all things young and hip, deems Plant's music vital and interesting, and not nostalgic but fresh, who am I to argue?

I suspect, however, that the critic is just trying to convince himself, and his audience, that they are still young and hip.

Robert Plant has been living in Austin, TX part-time for a while. The music scene there is full of bands that mix genres and styles.

I like Plant (he's friends with a friend of mine) but I turned it off after about a minute. Nothing happening there, that I can find.

I'm amazed what gets people excited these days,...

Comments at the article are remarkably bland. Not blasting, not praising. Neither hot nor cold -- spit out?

What I liked about Led Zeppelin was that fusion of English folk ballad, rock and their impression of the Delta Blues.

It was raw and powerful.

That green, green English and West African blue note via the American South.

Give me a concert with Dolly Parton and Leadbelly over
the Beatles, Bob Dylan and the folk hippie collective any day.

Yawn.

Anyone else and the song would end up at the bottom of the heap of music nobody listens to.

Saw him play Asheville with Alison Kraus a few years ago. I wish I could remember the condescending comments he made about the city and its denizens. Not as concert-ruining as what I've heard spouted on stage by David Byrne and Michael Stipe, but up there.

"It's from a new record, lullaby and... The Ceaseless Roar (the l is lower case intentionally)..."

Lower case intentionally? Maybe he just couldn't get it up.

Meh.

Vocals have a nice Orbison quality. But needs a lead guitar. And the monotonous rhythm is irritating.
