Recalling Robert Plant's best solo work since Led Zeppelin

It is quite obvious that Robert was more than determined to continue exploring new artistic directions in music and to develop as a composer, singer and interpreter of songs. And he succeeded in realizing his potential, which his participation in Zeppelin had constrained to some extent.

The beautiful solo masterpieces that Robert Plant gave to the world after the breakup of Led Zeppelin

When John Bonham tragically died while actively abusing alcohol, his comrades in Led Zeppelin felt an irreparable loss. Yes, of course, it was a hard blow for every fan of the band individually, for those close to the drummer... But speaking of musicians, his colleagues - they felt that they lost not just a drummer, but a brother. Over the years, the Zeppelins had grown close together. They became a family. And so after Bonham's death, one thing was clear to everyone in the team: there would never be the same Zeppelin again.

They did not look for a replacement, but modestly announced about his breakup. Their paths diverged - not completely, but that was pretty much it. For Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones and Robert Plant started a new chapter...

Everyone has managed to build dazzling career in his own way. Being creatively free, unfettered by the limits of style and familiar sound, Plante saturated his later recordings with "black" motifs, mellow rhythms and contributions from a variety of geniuses, from Phil Collins to Cozy Powell.

It is quite obvious that Robert was more than determined to continue exploring new artistic directions in music and to develop as a composer, singer and interpreter of songs. And he succeeded in realize your potentialthat the participation in Zeppelin was to some extent constraining. So: today we decided to remember Robert Plant's best solo works.

Best solo albums

Plante has released quite a few records in his solo career, but we need to highlight the most powerful ones. Of course, there are as many opinions as there are people, and everyone will have a different perspective. But if you turn to statisticallyone of Robert's best albums is "Now and Zen." 1988. Recorded by With Paige. As a guest musician, this release turned out to be a great success. Many more modern listeners emphasize that it was with "Now and Zen" that their further acquaintance with Zeppelin's works began.

Another gem. "The Principle of Moments. This is the second album of 1983, which demonstrates a clearly experimental stage in the vocalist's career. After the breakup of Zeppelin, Plante was not at all uninterested in modern trends, in particular popular music. He decided to work with what he had learned, with fresh trends, and the result of these prolific sessions was this release (which was warmly received by critics and fans alike).

Many fans especially highlight the work of "Manic Nirvanawhich allowed the singer to proudly enter the 90's! It's a set of rather edgy tracks, with humorous and sexual overtones. It seems that this time Robert listened to the critics and completely "freed up."by releasing their energy outward.

The record was warmly received by all "Mighty ReArranger" 2005, recorded by Plante and his band The Strange Sensation. The work showed that the singer still loves blues-rock and lingering ballads with a touch of North African influence. All the songs are fascinating creative journeys, expressed in original arrangements

And the last full-fledged entry we would like to note is "Band of Joy.".

The album was released in 2010. The beauty of it is that it is reminiscent of early blues roots iconic frontman before he was discovered by Page.

And now a little bit of about songs. In particular, the composition is particularly admirable. "Big Log.". This is biggest solo hit Plante, within which the singer steered himself in a new musical direction. Obviously, it's a significant slant away from the Zeppelin tradition toward a new, softer sound... Here's what he said about it:

"I really wanted to know if we could make a powerful sound that sounds big. But it doesn't have to be heavy, hard.

"Hurting Kind." - Another great track that brought Robert tangible success! This is the lead single from the album "Manic Nirvana", which was played on foreign radio stations for a long time. Stunning guitar riffs Doug Boyle and Chris Blackwell - it's something.

A very worthy composition. "29 Palms.".

"Her velvet glove.
It knocks me down and rolls me down, rolls me down.
Her fiery kiss..."

Some critics have suggested that the lyric was inspired by Robert's relationship with Alanna MilesThe singer of the hit "Black Velvet". Plant himself neither confirmed, nor denied this information:

"Forget all the rumors. Everything is true and everything is untrue.

"Ship of Fools"which translates as "Ship of Fools," has a terrific lyricism:

"On the waves of love my heart breaks
What's weirder is that I can't hope for myself.
The tide is out again, wow, my world is changing.
And behind the smile is a complete doldrums,
That's how I know so far..."

As for the famous "In the Mood."This track has a very characteristic atmosphere of the early 80's and sounds almost like David Bowie. It was a very successful song for Robert, as it stayed on the first place of Billboard Mainstream Rock for several weeks.

It's a case where the mere guitar hook (played Robbie BluntBy the way) is enough to fall in love with the composition.
