Robert Plant: Fate of Nations (1993)

plant fate of nationsBy Scott Goldfine

Former Led Zeppelin singer Robert Plant visits many places on the musical map on his fourth and most accomplished solo album. The king of caterwaul shows unexpected restraint as the album swings from sparse rockets to lush ballads with many intriguing diversions in between.

While Zep fans would be better served with Jimmy Page’s latest project, this elegant effort shows Plant’s growth.
