Robert Plant‘s follow-up to Pictures at Eleven implements much of his debut’s style and vocal meandering into a new and more exciting bunch of songs. The mysteriousness of “Big Log,” the album’s first single, reached the Top 20 in the United States and in the U.K., while “In the Mood” is The Principle of Moments‘ finest offering, proving that Plant could roam freely with his voice and still have it work effectively. But Plant doesn’t stop here, as he gives tracks like “Wreckless Love,” “Stranger Here…Than Over There,” and “Other Arms” an equal amount of curt abstractness and rock appeal. Because Plant‘s voice is so compelling in any state, the convolution of his writing tends to take a back seat to his singing in most of his solo work, which is definitely the case in most of the songs here. Plant went on tour with the Honeydrippers within the same year of The Principle of Moments‘ release, adding another facet to his already diverse solo repertoire.

The most popular track on album-oriented rock radio in the US was “Other Arms“, which reached number-one on the Billboard Top Tracks chart. Genesis‘ drummer Phil Collins played drums for six of the album’s eight songs (as he did on Pictures at Eleven). On the other two tracks former Jethro Tull drummer Barriemore Barlow performed.

Like Plant’s first solo album, Pictures at Eleven, the songs departed from the hard rock sound of Led Zeppelin. Following the strength of these albums, Plant launched a successful tour in 1983.
