Rolling Stone
At their best, the riffs are clean and purifying. The two dreary examples of blooze (“Tea for One,” “For Your Life”) may stretch even the diehards’ loyalty, but make no mistake: Presence is another monster in what by now is a continuing tradition of battles won by this band of survivors. […]

Then again when a band has just delivered one of the best albums of all time you can forgive them somewhat for a slight lapse. ‘Achilles Last Stand’ and ‘Tea For One’ are essential Led Zeppelin classics but the album can feel slightly mediocre at times especially throughout its middle section. However, as Jimmy Page once boasted, Led Zeppelin‘s mediocre was better than anyone else’s best. […]

This album ranks about in the middle of all the albums that I’ve ever heard. “Achilles Last Stand” is one of the greatest songs that I’ve ever heard. The only slight negative about the song is its length, which is 10:22. If it were stolen, I would buy it again because Led Zeppelin is still immortal. […]
