I had totally forgotten about Robert Plant’s new album until seeing him on the Colbert Report last week. The interview was fantastic as Colbert & Plant bantered back and forth – two masters at play; including Plant handing Colbert a joint. Then Plant hit the stage with a ripping his band, The Sensational Shape Shifters to perform the lead single, Rainbow, complete with glow-in-dark tambourines (I’m sure they have a cooler name. I just don’t know it.) Next day, there was a web exclusive of Little Maggie which was even better.

Robert Plant is a rock and roll legend that is getting better with age. As opposed to just touring off his old hits, he’s pushing the envelope by combining his history as a Rock God with a dazzling mixture of new sounds. The album is impeccably done. I could blather on about individual songs. I’ll leave you with this; if you ever enjoyed a Led Zeppelin album, go get this album. If you hated Led Zeppelin, go get this album. This album transcends all that. Plant is to be celebrated for his undying commitment.
