Reviewed in Australia on 2 July 2019
In terms of music progression....this album is the true cornerstone in the evolution of hard rock. Jimi Hendrix, Cream, Led Zepplin utilized the new technology of better amplifiers and guitar effects to guide their electric blues sound towards hard rock, and bands like Blue Cheer refined repetitive guitar riffing, but this album used these elements, simplified the approach to their basic form, added strong melody and a powerful raw sound, and hence made the template of all hard rock that all metal bands from AC/DC to Ironmaiden to Judas Priest followed. True to say that the Black Sabbath debut album was released 4 months earlier and is the first heavy metal album, but that album has a murkier blend of a Led Zepplin leadened blues sound mixed with progressive rock sound that they later developed to a signature sound. "In Rock" is the first fully formed, fast, loud, melodic and uncompromising hard rock metal album...a masterpiece.
