Good Robert Plant cd. I loved this cassette when it came out and wound up with two. I played the heck out of them. MTV played the videos all the time and it was vintage late 80's.

Robert Plant's Now and Zen in 5 Sentences or Fewer

(4 out of 5 stars)
"Now and Zen found Robert Plant swinging his musical pendulum back to a more guitar-based sound which was a welcome change after 1985's awful Shaken `N' Stirred ("Little By Little" being the one good track on that album). Jimmy Page joined his old bandmate to contribute on the two biggest hits of Now and Zen ("Tall Cool One" and "Heaven Knows") but Plant also incorporated keyboards and other sounds of the time. In doing so, he gave credence to his rock roots without making it sound like an almost-Zeppelin classic rock recording. While some of the instrumentation certainly ties Now and Zen to his 1988 release year, it's still a fun listen and a good one for an afternoon drive on the freeway with the windows (and the pedal) down. You should give it a listen and enjoy the memories."
