One song (the Crunge) away from perfection

I think was to fill up space left the song "Houses of the Holy," which was supposed to be the title track. They saved it for "Physical Graffiti." If HOTH had stayed on the album, it would, legit, have arguably been the best LZ album.

I don't think adding Houses of the Holy to it's namesake album would've tipped the scales away from PG. I don't have a favorite album but I think being a double LP full of absolute bangers I'd give the edge to PG just off sheer volume.

edit - basically, they're all my favorite, but PG is two albums worth of songs so it counts twice.

Respectfully disagree--I think the PG is kind of a bloated mess. It's got some good tracks (like HOTH) and would have made a pretty good single album. As far as I am concerned the HOTH album is the last really good record they put out.

agreed. there are only a few double albums that needed to be.

what a solid single album PG would have been.

I always respected that song due to the technical difficulty of it. I could take it or leave it though.

Idk, I like that song, it’s very James Brown of them

Yeah, but it's 1973, I'll just listen to the man himself.

Straight up. That song is terrible, which makes no sense because the rest are some of their best,
