OK, so we just disagree on whether we personally enjoy it.
a21, what order would you suggest to the asker?
I would say for the whole discog, start with IV and then work from the beginning chronologically.
Believe me, I used to be a diehard Zeppelin fan. In Through the Out Door definitely grew on me after hating on it for months. I even wrote a scathing review of it in the album reviews section :p I love it now. But the best place to start for Led Zeppelin, from what Fennz mentioned, is Led Zeppelin I. In Through the Out Door is the definition of acquired taste.
LZ II > Houses of the Holy > LZIV > LZIII > Physical Graffitti > LZ > In Through the Out Door
I haven't heard any of Presence and hated what I heard from Coda.
You don't like Houses of the Holy and Coda? The latter I can understand, but the former deserves to at least be exposed near the end of your order, I think.
Also, the reason I started with IV was because if you don't find something you like on IV, you won't like much more Zeppelin.
EDIT 1: Also, I'd like to note that I'm not a "hardcore" Zeppelin fan, but I like a good chunk of their discography, and I haven't given ITtOD a chance for awhile, as I haven't heard Zeppelin that isn't III in a while.
It looks like I'm getting a recommendation from this thread, too! Off to ITtOD. I'll get back to you if I still dislike it.
EDIT 2: For completeness' sake, here's my order:
IV (If you don't like this, there is very little Zeppelin you will like. This is a good primer for them.) > I (This is a great album) > II (This is my second favorite Zeppelin Album) > III (This gives you another perspective on Zeppelin, and it's the only album of theirs that I still consistently listen to) > HotH (This is the best non-numbered album if you count Untitled as IV) > Physical Graffiti > Presence > ITtOD > Coda
I'd like to add that my order of how good the albums are would be
III, II, I, Presence, The Rest
I just feel that for the asker to get a feel for the band, IV is a better starting place.
Zeppelin I-III are their best anyways, followed by HotH.
TV on the Radio recommendations, please?
Ok Calculator is pretty out there, but pretty amazing.
If you're looking for material like Wolf Like Me, you should check out Dear Science and Return to Cookie Mountain. Desperate Youths, Blood Thirsty Babes is definitely worth checking out as well.
