Led Zeppelin's 'IV', known colloquially as "the one with Stairway To Heaven On It", was the band's fourth record (uh, yes?), and saw them surge back from the relative obscurity of 'III'. It stands as one of the high watermarks of hard rock and saw the band cross into folk and prog more consistently. Get the Led out in 2014, because I hear that's the done thing.

9/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 23rd October 2014
With all classic albums there is a certain amount of mystery that keeps people talking and keeps a myth alive. I seem to remember as with The Beatles' "White Album" here, the mystery surrounds the ambiguity of its actual name. Is it "Led Zeppelin IV", "Four Symbols" or just "Led Zeppelin"? As for the music, the brilliant music on here, I still love "Stairway To Heaven" and I always will. I don't need to say anything more about that, and there’s so much more to love! John Bonham is at his best on "Misty Mountain Hop", “When The Levee Breaks” and classic rock masterpiece "Black Dog". There are also the folk elements that appeared on Led Zeppelin III here too with “The Battle Of Evermore” and “Going To California”. In my opinion, this is Led Zeppelin’s most essential album - a hard rock classic.
