The Led Zep vet­eran has con­sis­tently and stead­fastly re­fused the money-spin­ning re­vival trail in favour of dis­cov­er­ing bril­liant new ca­reer vis­tas. His 12th al­bum is no ex­cep­tion – mu­si­cally mer­cu­rial, with the ad­di­tion of bril­liant West Coun­try fid­dler Seth Lake­man, it matches gor­geous bal­lad Sea­son’s Song with right­eous rock­ing lam­bast (Carv­ing Up The World Again... A Wall And Not A Fence). Eastern and African flavours swirl round Plant’s lone­some heart songs, to­tal ab­sorp­tion and un­quench­able fas­ci­na­tions. Still burn­ing, beau­ti­fully.
