Go To

Houses of the Holy is the fifth studio album by Led Zeppelin, released in 1973. It is Zeppelin's first album with no covers, with the band (mostly Page) writing all the songs; as well as their first not to be self-titled note . It is also a turning point for the band musically, as they become more experimental and their production techniques advance.

Hits and fan favourites include "The Song Remains the Same", "The Rain Song", "D'yer Mak'er" and "No Quarter".

The album was listed at #148 in Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time.
