The Principle of Moments
Label: Es Paranza
Perhaps Robert Plant's finest solo album, Principle of Moments served to liberate the vocalist from Led Zeppelin without sacrificing his signature sound or (oddly undervalued) knack for continual sonic experimentation. The opener, "Other Arms," fired up the rock faithful, while "In the Mood" and the intoxicating "Big Log" found Plant relaxing and stretching out for major chart success. The soaring "Horizontal Departure" is one of his many neglected solo numbers.
