hehe well i do love queens debut album, its actually that and ANATO are my favorites, depending on the day. but i do love zeppelin's early work altogether, but depends on the day, yet again. i have yet to collect all their albums. i dont feel like a real zeppelin fan >.< but i do love them. i just have 'houses of the holy' and 'early and latter years'. so ill start my collection soon. i apologize :-p i cant really answer the question. :(

I'm not too fond of Led Zeppelin's first albums even though a lot of people consider them their best.

I found that I, II, and III were too blues oriented. They're good indeed, but I find them quite overated. I think Led Zep reached their true potential from Zoso until Physical Graffitti.

What Zebonka said.

Although, to be honest, I consider both albums to be on the weaker end of both bands' catalogues. They both had really good songs, but they both had songs I really couldn't care less for.

Damn so many people HATE Led Zeppelin. =( IMO, deciding between Queen and LZ is like choosing between two identical twins. They're very different but still so similar and equally lovable. But as for debut albums, I personally think Queen I has far more to offer musically than Led Zeppelin I and is better...

Well Queen I sounds very zeppelinesque, only that has May's guitar, freddie's singing is very Plantish. They're different kind of bands, but for albums, i go with the zepp


Loser in the end!!!

Queen I is in fact influenced by Led Zeppelin, but I think such early unique Queen compositions like 'My Fairy King' cannot be compared to any other band or musician. In terms of conceptual albums I'd say Led Zeppelin II is slightly better than Queen's ANATO. But as a band, I like Queen more, because they have more variety in their music.

There wouldn't be any Queen without LZ. I'd say Led Zeppelin II is better than Queen II but A Night At The Opera? They're too different IMO to compare, LZ was never art/progressive rock so they never struggled for excellence.

Physical Graffitti is the only Led Zeppelin album that is arguably as good as Queen II.

That's just my opinion.

I agree with you; I just meant that Led Zeppelin II was better than ANATO as a whole, i.e. in it's 'continuity' - this is only my opinion;) The reason is as I listened to Led Zeppelin II for the first time approx 3 or 4 years ago - being already a Queen fan and owning all their albums - I was amazed by it and liked all the songs on it while on ANATO, I'm not in particular fond of 'I'm In Love With My Car' and 'Sweet Lady' (again; my personal taste:)) I feel the same for 'Dark Side Of The Moon' by Pink Floyd; personally, I like this album better than ANATO because of its structure/continuity, but in terms of songs I think no song of DSOTM can reach the excellence of 'Bohemian Rhapsody'.
