Product Description


Though the band likely didn't know it at the time, this would prove to be the last studio record by one of the most famous rock & roll bands in the world. Drummer John Bonham died shortly after its release. Although nothing compares to early Led Zeppelin--and they lost many longtime fans in the late 1970s--this LP is nothing to be embarrassed by. They were quick to embrace and experiment with synthesizers, and while it wears a little thin by record's end (the synth-bloated "Carouselambra" and the slick AOR hit "All My Love"), it adds a certain majestic tone to the heavy-hitting opener, "In the Evening," and gives a rollicking good-time feel to "South Bound Suarez." Plant's howl and Page's bluesy guitars are in fine form on "I'm Gonna Crawl" and the lilting "Fool in the Rain" recalls the pretty numbers from their early career. --Lorry Fleming

Product Description

The last proper Led Zep album, or "swan song" if you will, carried on the band's grand tradition with In the Evening; Hot Dog; All My Love; Fool in the Rain , and more. From 1979.

5.0 out of 5 stars Led Zep's "Abbey Road" May 19 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I may be going off on a limb, but I was thinking recently about how a comparison could be made between the recording careers of Led Zeppelin and the Beatles.
To me, LZ were the Beatles of the '70's. In the '70's, LZ were the most popular band in the world. Their albums were huge commercial successes and were praised and copied by musicians around the world.
If you look at the final recordings of both bands, I think you'll see an interesting similarity. "Led Zeppelin IV," which featured "Stairway to Heaven," is looked upon by most fans and critics as their "masterpiece." The same was said about the Beatles' "Sgt. Pepper" album. After "Led Zeppelin IV" was released, the band put out four more studio albums. After "Sgt. Pepper" was released, the Beatles put out four more studio albums.
It's interesting to compare Led Zep's final four albums with the Beatles' final four. LZ's "Houses of the Holy" was appreciated by fans, but was not as highly regarded as "Led Zeppelin IV." "Magical Mystery Tour" was also appreciated by fans, but was not as highly regarded as "Sgt. Pepper." After releasing such exceptional albums as "Led Zeppelin IV" and "Sgt. Pepper," it would be incrredibly difficult for ANY band, even two as fantastic as LZ and the Beatles, to duplicate that overwhelming success with a follow-up release.
LZ's next album was "Physical Graffiti," a two-record set. The Beatles' next album was "The Beatles" (better known as the "White Album") which also was a two-record set. Today, many fans of both bands regard these two-record sets as the best music either band either committed to vinyl.

5.0 out of 5 stars Change for the better June 28 2004
Format:Audio CD
Let's face facts people. Zeppelin were a creative band that was constantly expanding its horizons musically. This is why In Through the Out Door gets bashed so often. People hate change. They wanted Zeppelin to keep putting out material that all sounded the same. But Zeppelin didn't want to do that. So they released In Through The Out Door in 1979. It was a departure from their bluesy sound into a more keyboard based sound. This benefits most of the songs. In the Evening is a standard powerful bombastic zeppelin song with that extra layer of keyboard which adds a whole nother dimension to things. Excellent solo by Page. Then comes South Bound Suarez, a song that sounds like an old timey western piano based song. The type of song you'd expect in say a western movie. This is soon followed by Fool In The Rain, the only song off this album still played on radio. It swerves and goes through multiple mood swings to create a generally great feeling. Hot Dog is next. It is the closest thing to say old school blues you see on this album. I find it funny to hear Plant say Texas just because it sounds so odd. Then comes Carouselambra my only complaint. The song is based off an extremely annoying synth riff and would've been a half decent song if it had been about 5 minutes long instead of 10. Then you have the ballad-esque All Of My Love. The song is excellent and is excellently played with an awesome keyboard solo by John Paul Jones who operates as essentially the lead musician throughout this whole album. The album ends with a bluesy song called I'm Gonna Crawl. The song features Page's arguably best solo on the album and was in my opinion a great way to end a career. Overall, this album leaves a question in the listeners head. Read more ›

3.0 out of 5 stars In Through the Out Door June 26 2004
Format:Audio CD
Somewhere between Presence and In Through the Out Door, disco, punk, and new wave had overtaken rock & roll, and Led Zeppelin chose to tentatively embrace these pop revolutions, adding synthesizers to the mix and emphasizing John Bonham's inherent way with a groove. The album's opening number, "In the Evening," with its stomping rhythms and heavy, staggered riffs, suggests that the band haven't deviated from their course, but by the time the rolling shuffle of "South Bound Suarez" kicks into gear, it's apparent that they've regained their sense of humor. After "South Bound Suarez," the group try a variety of styles, whether it's an overdriven homage to Bakersfield County called "Hot Dog," the layered, Latin-tinged percussion and pianos of "Fool in the Rain," or the slickly seductive ballad "All My Love." "Carouselambra," a lurching, self-consciously ambitious synth-driven number, and the slow blues "I'm Gonna Crawl" aren't quite as impressive as the rest of the album, but the record was a graceful way to close to their career, even if it wasn't intended as the final chapter

5.0 out of 5 stars A little different, but still a great album. April 25 2004
Format:Audio CD
I've often heard this album criticized for being non-Zeppelin-like in years past; as if they were not being true to themselves. "In through the out door" features liberal use of synthesizers in addition to explorations in latin, disco, and country. To some, these musical explorations may have given the impression of a band, sometimes credited for ushering in "heavy metal" (a historical label more appropriately applied to Black Sabbath, in my view) as selling out to a more tempered, if not 'commercial,' sound.
In the final analysis, the latter criticisms turn out to be incorrect. As a band, Zeppelin were only continuing to mature. 'Heavy metal' riffs a la' Whole Lotta Love" or "Immigrant song" are replaced in favor of songs where the guitar riff is less prominent, only to be more eloquently interwoven into the musical arrangement (listen to "In the evening," "Carouselambra," or "All my love"). The addition of synthesizers was probably the unpardonable sin for some Zep fans, but when looking back, the album is not any more diverse than the eclectic collections of songs found on "Houses of the Holy," "III," or any Zep album.
On "Out door," Page devotes more time to refining the art of accompaniment than in years past--playing more 'for the song.' The latter 'minimal' approach foreshadowed what he would continue to develop in years to come with The Firm and other projects. Its still the same great Jimmy, minus the extravegant cadenzas. Left standing are what matters most: Great musicainship tightly integrated into a band context.
