  • In this age of unplugged it was inevitable that Led Zeppelin would return in some shape or form to reclaim a legacy which fused folky musings with harder leanings. On NO QUARTER, Robert Plant and Jimmy Page are joined by a core group of musicians featuring the Cure's Porl Thompson, The London Metropolitan Orchestra, and a multitude of Middle Eastern musicians playing exotic instruments. The result is a fascinating blend of Zeppelin classics and three new songs. "Nobody's Fault But Mine" and "Friends" are given a slightly altered interpretation while the more recent "Yallah," "City Don't Cry," and "Wonderful One" revel in multicultural trappings. "Yallah" and "City Don't Cry" are both steeped in chanting in a foreign tongue while "Wonderful One" sounds like an outtake from HOUSES OF THE HOLY.
  • Robert Plant and Jimmy Page's world music approach casts a positive sheen on the remainder of this collection of Zeppelin songs which include exotic versions of "The Battle Of Evermore," "Gallows Pole," and "Kashmir."
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (12/15/94, p.92) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...far better than anyone but their accountants had a right to expect..."

Entertainment Weekly (11/11/94, p.70) - "...With Page strumming away energetically and Plant hitting most of his old mystic-hippie high notes...they and their band offer up sharp remakes....Show the connection between the folk music of the British Isles and...Middle East..." - Rating: B+

Q (12/94, p.148) - 3 Stars - Good - "...a curious, new, bombastic, post-Peter Gabriel species of non-groinal World Music Zeppelin. The album is hit-and-miss...but it does stand up, as far as spirit of adventure goes, with prime, hubristic Zeppelin..."

Mojo (Publisher) (1/95, p.50) - Included in Mojo's "25 Best Albums of 1994" - "...A robust and thrilling new beginning....with this hugely enjoyable album..."

NME (Magazine) (11/19/94, p.47) - 6 - Good - "...Plant wibbles on about Moroccan sunrises and the like, and actually manages to transfer his wandering moods to the music..."
