PLANT,ROBERT - NOW & ZEN[EXPANDED & REMASTERED]
Format: Compact Disc/EP/Single
With his fourth solo release, 1988's NOW & ZEN, Robert Plant finally began to let the influence of his former band Led Zeppelin seep into his current songwriting. While his first three solo albums had a more modern production and were keyboard or synth-based, NOW & ZEN signaled Plant's return to a more direct sound.
It's dominated by guitar (comparable at times to U2)--no doubt due to the fact that a whole new line-up is backing him. Highlights include the uptempo hit "Tall Cool One" (which features a cameo by his old buddy Jimmy Page, as well as several samples from past Zep classics), the majestic rock of "Heaven Knows", and the grand ballad "Ship of Fools".
