Very different but very much worth it

"This is a must-have for JPJ or those who collect Zeppelin material. This isnt the bone crushing rock n roll you expect but some good experimentation by Jonsey. With Jimmy Page on 2 tracks and Jon Anderson of Yes on 2 tracks,plus the bonus of Jones himself singing on tracks, I really enjoyed the various types of music on this. "Crackback" will remind you of the same hard hitting sound heard on Zep 4 while "Chilli Sauce" is all in the mind of Jones stepping away from Zeppelin and into his own. A sweet piece of work for sure and when you select this CD for the collection, dont forget to pick up "Zooma"also."
JPJ Soundtrack -A Nice Piece

"As has been said before. The best here for a Zeppelin fan would be to copy one of the 2- Page Tracks and add it to a compilation, and debate the quality of the second track forever. But this is as I said in my title, a very nice piece. The Madeline Bell vocal cuts are nice ballads. Other reviewers called them 80's-like but they are more like what you require in a soundtrack, and certainly tunes you might find yourself humming. The mix of performers and Jones' do-it-yourself accomplishments are what makes this piece stand out. He is all over the album -on some tracks playing all instruments and singing as well. Perhaps the album is better judged against similar one man-solo efforts by McCartney, Jason Faulkner and Todd Rundgren -not so much for musical similarity, but for ingenuity and skill."
WORTH IT FOR BAD CHILD ALONE

"I was finally able to snag a copy of this soundtrack on cd(a
japanese import)I have owned the vinyl copy since the mid 80's
and it has been a long search for the cd. The other reviewers
have mentioned the Jimmy Page songs being the best and assuming
you are just a Led Zeppelin fan and a classic/hard rock fan that may be true. However,the true treasure here is Bad Child.
This song sounds nothing like the Mighty Zep and that's just
fine. Unbelievably John's voice actually comes real close to
sounding like Casey from KC and the Sunshine band and that's
not necessarily a bad thing. Musically it has a new wavish,
island feel with a cool atmosphere. I'm personally a huge
Zeppelin as well as a new wave alternative rock fan and i feel
that there is a little something for everyone on this great
