This some of the best rock music in years! They aren't trying to be Zepplin. It's a style nothing more! Hell everyone wants to compare David Covedale to Robert Plant yet their voices are different. Just enjoy! Geeze!
Great band and album. Sure, they have drawn inspiration from Zeppelin, but why is that a bad thing?
A bold statement
By L. Pirard
Of course it is natural to compare what is unfamiliar with what is. Yes, Greta Van Fleet may be reminiscent of Led Zeppelin at a glance, but those who pay more attention will very quickly observe that beyond the initial similarities between these two brilliant bands, they are quite different in their own ways and they each deliver their own unique takes on what could arguably be considered a generic classic rock & roll tone. Both bands have cemented their own brands of rock, neither of which are as similar to one another as many seem to believe.
It is for the reasons stated above that I believe it is not only a shame but in fact it is even potentially harmful to Greta Van Fleet to be compared to Led Zeppelin, and they should be allowed to thrive with their new and sensational sounds of rock & roll.

One reviewer gave one star and compared this band to Green Day. Are you serious? Most say they're trying to sound like Led Zeppelin. Really? Have you listened to Zeppelin? If you have then you would know there's very few similarities. GVF is original. They rock. They are their own sound. Lay off. Click on the Dance/Electronic/Rap genre and keep telling yourself that you like good music.
Just buy Led Zeppelin II
This is a poor rip off of one of the greatest bands of all time.
It’s pretty good, but...
There are are a lot more artists who know who they are and stay in my playlist rotation a lot longer. There’s not really a different enough unique sound. It comes off as a tribute to classic rock and led zeppelin mostly. The songs are fairly good. I still listen to Brave New World a lot, but classic rock fans fall for the fact that these sound like hit songs, but really it’s not extremely authentic. I think music fans stuck in the past have more in common with hip hop and modern pop fans than they realize. There a lot of bands out there making better, more authentic art.

Okay, let’s get this straight here. Led Zeppelin is the best band out there. Songs like Stairway to Heaven, All my Love, Rock n Roll, and other famous songs... salute to LZ!! Now.... we got ‘cough cough’ Greta Van Fleet. Who are they? Well, supposedly they’re from Michigan and they’re inspired with Led Zeppelin. They’re apparently 17 year olds, also brothers too?? When I first heard “Highway Tune” from their first album, it sounded like LZ. But then realized it was them....Safari Song kinda wasn’t the best, then Black Smoke Rising...kinda weak. Then, this album. When The Curtain Fall wasn’t the greatest, especially Anthem...So far, You’re the One is pretty much the best tune. I think they got potential of becoming successful, but not enough in my books.
Greta Van Zeppelin
Just listen to Led Zeppelin. Go up to the search bar, type "Led Zeppelin," and hit enter. Spare yourself this 5th generation clone of a legendary rock band and actually go listen to the music this band apes, sound and image-wise. Dull and tasteless imitation, the hospital food version of the classic rock sound.

This album gets boring for a few songs, but it has good songs. Love the sound, the instruments, his vocals, very beautiful.
They’re really good! Hopefully I will see them in concert in the future. I’m only 16 and I’m happy this sound is coming back so I can actually go see it in concert
