Any ideas? Bound to be an anticlimax, like all mystery online countdowns.

For anyone who hasn't seen it, the following two images have been posted on the official LZ Facebook page in the last few days:

My guess is a live CD/DVD of the O2 Arena reunion show.

I love how some people, the kind who have to comment on every Facebook post they read regardless of whether they have anything to say or not, thought the "Five" image meant the band are going to record 'Led Zeppelin 5'. And complained about being kept in suspense after a single post.

Looking forward to the CD/DVD. Wish they had done something from Out Door in the set though. Fool in the Rain would have been great.

"III" image on Facebook today, and an audio clip of crowd noise posted on YouTube.

The thing is, 'How The West Was Won' is basically the be all and end all of Led Zeppelin live albums, so I really can't get excited about this.

Well it's a whole different ballgame. That's like comparing Live After Death to whatever the latest live album Maiden has put together. Pretty lame that they've waited five years to do it since some of the excitement has worn off and they're not doing it ever again, but at least everyone will be able to experience the show in some form.

Well, not really, since neither of those are their best...

Yes really since it's comparing them live in their heyday to now.

Wait what? Dude do you really think that Iron Maiden have made a better live album than Live After Death, or that there's an official live Led Zeppelin album better than How the West Was Won? I'd say Tony's comparison is pretty apt.

This will be cool to see in theaters, but I'm not super excited for this. Now if they went and made a live album (or better yet, a whole boxset) out of the Earl's Court shows then shit would go down.

I actually think Bruce sounds terrible on Life After Death.

He can actually hit those notes nowadays.

I think Rock In Rio is their best live album.

You have a fair argument (although I think Bruce sounds far from terrible on Live After Death), but I don't know, Live After Death just has a little more energy to me and it just flows really well in terms of the tracklisting. I actually like how it has a full 1984 show to begin with, then throws a bunch of old songs as bonuses. Really though, all of Maiden's live albums from Rock in Rio onwards are great to listen to- Rock in Rio definitely has the best setlist though.

I'm just saying it's old vs. new. Seems pretty dumb to say "I have x live album so I won't buy this", expecially for someone that seems to buy up everything.

I didn't say I won't buy it. Unless it sounds like shit, then I won't buy it. It's just nothing to get excited about. Same as a new Maiden live album is nothing to get excited about. Now, if the setlist had been packed with rarities or something, that might be different. Or they'd played with an orchestra, or done something else cool and different. But it's just another straight live album. Regardless of which era it's from, it's not exciting.

The former. See manks' post.

He probably sounds a little rough on LAD because when they recorded that album, they had been on the road for like 9 months straight, and playing around 6 nights a week. I would have to go back and look at the tour schedule to see for sure. The Powerslave tour was so long and demanding, it's a miracle Bruce could sing at all after that trek. I believe it lasted more than a year, like I said I would have to go back and look at the tour dates. Most of that album was recorded at the Long Beach shows, which was very late in the tour. Plus Aces High was the first song, his voice wasn't warmed up yet and it got better as the album went on.
