4.0 out of 5 stars a worthy effort, November 1, 1999
This review is from: In Through the Out Door (Audio CD)
This album was to be their final effort as a band. It certainly was a step in a new direction, and one that not everyone was ready for. But the elements that make Led Zeppelin a legend are still here.
"In the Evening" is a stunning cruncher of a song, "Fool in the Rain" is a fun jaunt, "Caroselambra" was a step in a whole new direction for the band, "All My Love" is the most tender song Zep ever did and one of Plant's most heartfelt vocals, and "I'm Gonna crawl" is a sprawling bluesy number with great guitar & shredding vocals.
Above all, this album is known as the one that John Paul Jones really flexed his musical muscle & held everything together. His influence is huge, which is probably why it's the least "classic" Zep sounding album. Not that this is nessicarily a bad thing. Page's influence is felt, but he definately took a back seat. Jonesy was driving this time. Page still manages some great licks & atmospherics, Bonzo still kicks out bone-crushing beats, and Plant's maturity as a vocalist shines (he couldn't have done "All My Love" in the early 70's).
Okay...."In Through the Out Door" is certainly not the stongest album in Led Zeppelin's discography. Quite possibly their worst (between this & "Presence").
But then again, many bands would KILL to have an album of this quality to be claimed their "worst" recording. Certainly not the first album by Zep to purchase, but still a must have.
