Rediscovered this fantastic album, from 32 years ago, from back in 1985. Have been really enjoying the CD in my van. Just thought I would share it here.
It's a great example of
1) An album that goes out on a limb, yet stays true to it's roots. 2) Is very cohesive, and goes down really well as a whole, moreso than just the songs individually. 3) Showcases the importance of a killer track near the middle of the album, and "Little By Little" is certainly that.
A lot of 60s and 70s artists were out of their comfort zone in the 80s and had to make do the best they could, and this is a fine example of Robert Plant, and his great group of musicians, below, for their third and final outing together, doing that, and achieving good results.

I certainly agree that "Principle of Moments" is a great album, possibly even better.
I was just inspired to do the SS post, because of a fresh look at it as a whole after all of these years, it reminds me of a splash painting like the cover of the album.
One thing I did not realize about his first two albums, "Pictures st Eleven" and "The Principle of Moments", until reviewing the band credits yesterday, is that Phil Collins is the drummer on all the tracks except for four.
