He even directly apes Robert Plant's hand motions and gestures. I've never seen anything like it.

People get up in arms about them NOT REALLY being a total ripoff, like Oasis fans used to, but I seriously don't get that. Are these people freakin' blind and deaf?

Someone needs to tell them that The Sweet and Slade want their early-70's stage costumes back. Someone took a wrong turn before the Led Zeppelin store.

oK, found another thread - but they did just play Lolla and were awesome. I dug up some of their "older" performances and I am really impressed with how much they have improved in a year or so...i might buy a t-shirt

Led Zeppelin rip off


yeah but who cares? We aren't getting any more Led Zep so I'll take it. They may actually get better over time so I'm not ready to dismiss them just yet (plus I kind of like them shhhh).

They’ve had some buzz for a couple years now and they haven’t got any better. Don’t see why it would change. They need to find some different songwriters.

I was thinking about adding some Greta Van Fleet onto the ongoing bar playlist but opted for some Jay Reatard and other Strat suggestions instead.

Nailed it:

But for as retro as Anthem of the Peaceful Army may seem, in actuality, it is the future. It’s proof of concept that in the streaming and algorithm economy, a band doesn’t need to really capture the past, it just needs to come close enough so that a computer can assign it to its definite article. The more unique it sounds, the less chance it has to be placed alongside what you already love. So when the Greta Van Fleet of your favorite artist finally lands on your morning playlist, spark up a bowl of nostalgia and enjoy the self-satisfied buzz of recognizing something you already know. It’s the cheapest high in music.

Pitchfork pretty much nailed it, which is rare. This band is indeed horrible.

I listened to one song once when people were all talking about them. I thought “wow they really want to sound like Led Zeppelin” and never listened again.

I take Pitchfork reviews with a huge grain of salt since they are generally incapable of a positive review on any band or album they don’t define as their cutting edge. Nothing is good unless it falls into their own self-serving insistence upon “indie cred,” which is as useful a term as grunge, alternative, etc.

My favorite part of that review was how it spent an entire paragraph praising The Darkness
