    I heard this today and was blown away by the Zep influence in the sound.
    It's worth a listen, trust me!

    Man, they've been around for quite some time. They have been compared to Zep from the get go.
    Great band, their first EP is amazing.

    Sounds like a cross between Zepp and Jason and the Nashville Scorchers

    Robert Plant mentioned them in an interview I heard with him a while ago...

    I like them. I wonder if they'll stretch out and leave the Zepp sound. Seems like they consciously are maintaining that similarity. Might be good some time, maybe bring in a horn section, sax's, lean toward the Stones, or get some latin beats going.

    I do like the sound but agree that they do seem to be taking advantage of the zepp comparisons people make.

    Here's one that's maybe even less known that is up the same alley - Deep Sea Gypsies

    Greta is maybe the third or fourth "coming" of Zep.

    Here is the first one I recall.... Kingdom Come

    Not bad, but too reminiscent of "Your time is gonna come" for my ears...

    IMO Salty Dog's "Come Along" was the greatest channeling of Zep ever. It's got Bonham style thunderous drums, a hot and sweaty groove with a lewd looseness, nasty lyrics, and savage bluesy guitar leads. Criminally underrated band and tune.

    That Dred Zep Elvis's illegitimate son guy must have had so much fun doing that. I hope they're still going. Its genius comedy, and a great band.

    IMHO, Greta Van Fleet has a great sound and much like Zep. For the most part in my opinion, they suffer from poor song writing, the vocalist is a one-trick pony and need to work on their stage-audience connection in concert.

    I am a huge fan of that style of music and could not get through three of their songs in a well produced YouTube concert video. Most of their songs don't tell a story or take the listener anywhere. Good riffage and rhythm section, but I kept waiting for a 60's guitar hero blast for the solos and settled for some okay lead playing.

    Thank God for modern day social media, otherwise I would have bought their album and shelfed it quickly.

    GVF is not for me - when I listen to them I just can't help think this is an industry-produced zeppelin copy. But what do I know - maybe they just have a lot of Wolfmother influence. ;-)
