Led Zeppelin IV vs. Dark Side of the Moon
Which album is better Led Zeppelin IV or Dark Side of the Moon.
dark side of the moon by far.
zepp IV (even though it has no real name) has fewer songs, all of which are great. by dark side i think took much more effort (and drugs) to accomplish, and i listen to it much more.
All the songs on IV are great, but Dark Side of the Moon fits and flows much better as an album. Perfection when listened from start to finish.
No Contest: Dark Side of the Moon by a land slide.
Led Zeppelin is like piss to my ears.
comparing those two particular albums, id say dark side- it has alot more flow, as someone else mentioned, and has a very distinct feel throughout. that being said, as far as the bands go, imo zepellin blows floyd out of the water. most floyd puts me to sleep.
Both are among my favorite albums, but I prefer "Dark Side of the Moon" for various reasons.
-Each song on DSotM is almost flawless, while on Zoso I consider "Four Sticks", "The Battle of Evermore", and even "Rock and Roll" (IMO) to be somewhat weaker tracks.
-All of the songs on DSotM seem to have a common feel and sound that makes it feel like a cohesive album. To truly experience it, I prefer listening to the whole album in order. With Led Zeppelin IV, the album feels more like just an assortment of amazingly awesome singles.
-The sound engineering and quality on DSotM is impeccable. It simply sounds amazing.
-"Time" and "Us and Them" are two of the greatest songs ever written
-DSotM as a whole seems to evoke more emotion (although Stairway itself is probably evokes the most of any song on either album.)
I personally like zeppelin II better than IV. But Dark Side is the greatest album ever made so i think it takes the cake.
Zeppelin is the best band in the world, but i don't know which songs are on that album. I just got all the greatest hits, zep2, and phys graffiti.
Dark side is probably the best known album out there, and is so nice to listen to.
If Zeppelin IV was anything like their other stuff, they win, though, just by a bit.
On any given day my favorite can be either II, IV, or houses of the holy; however, I'd take DSotM over any of those three.
Ah a tough decision, for both are amazing albums...
But it would be a crime to not go with Dark Side of the Moon.
Zeppelin is my favorite and is the best band of all time. But just with these albums id go with dark side. like everyone else said it flows better but i think Zeppelin is a better band than Pink Floyd as a whole
Zeppelin has its strength in the talent of each band member while Pink Floyd blows me away with the compisition of their music. As an album i would definitely give the nod to Dark Side of the Moon.
dark side for sure
sooooo amazing to listen to while on acid
Zeppelin 4 is so damn overrated and overplayed everywhere i go, I love zeppelin so much, my favorite album is 2 for sure. But goddamn if i hear black dog, stairway to heaven, california, of fuckin battle of evermore one more time im going to go crazy.
DSOTM is just a classic and really is an amazing album as a whole.
What about Led Zeppelin III? I think that is their best album, but Dark Side of the Moon is better than all the Zeppelin albums.
i would have to agree with everyone else on this one, dark side of the moon is such a dope album..... and if it wasn't for dark side of the moon there wouldn't be dub side of the moon which would just be terrible.
Dark Side of the Moon. Led Zep IV is good too, but I've listened to it sooo many times.....
apples and oranges you cant really compare
guitar solo in time is dank im trying to play it now
dark side of the moon.
theres so much more flow to the album, it all fits together.
Led zeppelin IV is just a colection of songs
All times are Eastern (-5)
