Robert Plant: Band of Joy
Will Hermes, Rolling Stone, 22 September 2010
ROBERT PLANT'S 2007 ALBUM with pop-bluegrass songbird Alison Krauss, Raising Sand, did something 25 years of solo records never quite managed. It fully transformed him from former Led Zeppelin golden god into a roots singer. Plant had never sung so tenderly or collaboratively, commanding a crack modern string band that defined power in terms other than Physical Graffiti.
