Music Rules: Jimmy Page, "Liquid Mercury"

In 1988, after the demise of his attempted supergroup "The Firm", Jimmy Page released his solo album "Outrider".  It was a much better record than anything he had done since the end of Led Zeppelin. 

"Liquid Mercury" was the standout track from the album, listenable for its set or repeated riffs and themes, yet completely off-kilter and non-repetitive structure.  At a time in the 1980s when most New Wave and Heavy Metal groups were becoming derivative, "Outrider" was a refreshing return to classic rock yet still highly original.
