Led Zeppelin - In Through The Out Door

Getting back and listening to a lot of dance music and rap music through my trip, as soon as I got back I started blasting some classic rock. The people I was road trippin' with weren't really classic types of people, so I didn't listen to hardly any for the last week. A track did come on the satellite radio while I was in CO, and that track was 'Nobody's Fault But Mine'. That song made me crave some Zeppelin when I got home. Now, I decided not to review the album that track is off (Presence) but instead this nice record that dropped in 1979. Many people think Led Zeppelin lost their luster after the release of 'Physical Graffiti', but I couldn't disagree more. This was their second to last album ever made, and it's one of the most forgottenly good records of all time. Sure, the sound is a little different from I,II,III or IV - but so what? The Beatles surely changed their sound from the 50's to the 60's - but that stuff is considered gold. Getting off my high horse, I wanted to profile this particular album because the die hards seem to forget about it, and the casuals seem to have never heard of it. Put me in the forget about it category, but I'm not lapsing today. I put this one on again and it rocks my socks off. It's a solid 6x platinum in the states, and one day I'm going to look into that. I'm 99% sure that includes any previous LP sales in addition to current CD sales. But, there is that 1% doubt. Anyway, I'd be stunned if someone actually hated this record. It's 7 songs that are for the most part, all really good. Zep it up today, you won't be sorry.

1. In the Evening
2. South Bound Saurez

4.5 out of 5 stars


  1. "fool in the rain" may be my favorite zep song. that's a tough one, really. but that song is so good. you can't not be in a good mood after listening to it. "in the evening" reminds me of the movie almost famous, not because the song was in there, but because the stillwater songs in that movie remind me of this song.

    as an aside, i really want to play 'achilles last stand' on guitar hero. i bet they don't have it though.

  2. Fool in the Rain is a really awesome song. Not sure about my favorite, but it's up there. 'Dazed and Confused' is probably still number one. I do like 'In The Evening' also. This whole cd is really rockin'. Doesn't get the respect it deserves.
