Physical Graffiti is the sixth studio album by the English rock band Led Zeppelin. It was originally released as a double album on 24 February 1975.
NME's Nick Kent reviewed the album three months before it was released. He speculated it could be the group's best work to date, saying "the album's tonal density is absolutely the toughest, most downright brutal I've heard all year".
In March 1975, Billboard magazine's reviewer wrote: "Physical Graffiti is a tour de force through a number of musical styles, from straight rock to blues to folky acoustic to orchestral sounds."
Similarly, Jim Miller stated in Rolling Stone that the double album was "the band's Tommy, Beggar's Banquet and Sgt. Pepper rolled into one: Physical Graffiti is Led Zeppelin's bid for artistic respectability".
Robert Plant felt that Physical Graffiti represented the band at its creative peak, and has since said that it is his favourite Led Zeppelin album. Jimmy Page has also said the album was a "high-water mark" for the group, and the creative energy from jamming and gradually working out song structures together led to some strong material.
