Presence, In Through The Out Door, and Coda have been remastered for 2015 by guitarist and producer Jimmy Page and are accompanied by companion audio comprised of previously unreleased music related to the original release.
In Through The Out Door topped the U.S. and UK album charts and has since been certified six-times platinum. Sadly, it would be the last album that Led Zeppelin recorded prior to drummer John Bonham s passing the following year. Among the seven album tracks are Fool In The Rain and All My Love, two songs that remain rock radio staples to this day.
The album s companion audio disc features an unreleased rough mix of every track from the original album, including early versions with working titles such as The Hook ( All My Love ), The Epic ( Carouselambra ), and Blot ( I m Gonna Crawl ).

The album has an overall softer sound to it and seems to me to be more reflective. I don’t mind this one bit – Led Zeppelin always had a softer side to them, so it really was not that much a departure. I think the playing on the album is actually very good and Jimmy Page got some great tones out of the electric guitar. I also like the use of synthesizers too (mostly Yamaha GX-1) – it lends the album an atmospheric feel. The greater use of synthesizers likely reflects the fact that John Paul Jones (and Robert Plant) did most of the writing. At the time, Jimmy Page and John Bonham were struggling with substance abuse problems.
The only track on the album that did not sit well with me was the rockabilly of Hot Dog – although I appreciate the fact that the group was trying to shake things up a bit, this one tune did not work for me.
This remastered version is awesome and attempts to recreate the old LP. The "LP sleeve" comes in the original brown paper wrapper and there is a small booklet that has photos of the group. The sound quality is generally pretty good although it sounds as if the levels of various instruments have been fiddled with. For example, the (admittedly) cheesy synth sounds on Carouselambra have been pushed further down i the mix. Overall though, the general sound is as I remember it.
All in all, this is a decent album that has a least a few gems on it. It is a little quieter than other Led Zeppelin albums but has enough of the Led Zeppelin sound that it makes for a pretty enjoyable listen.
But this is no ordinary band. There is no rock band, ever, that matched the cohesion and individualized skill at each position, as this one. The Doors, the Allmans, the Jimi Hendrix Experience ... there's a lot of great things I could say about them, obviously, but for the total performance from each person in this band, I think it was the tightest and most cohesive. And they were strong enough to accommodate the forces moving against them.
For Plant's gravelly, weakened voices, there is strengthened insight and poetry. He can still notes, but it sounds strained, and I find myself rooting for him, One thread of Zep's songwriting always had JPJ coming up with principle ideas and Jimmy elaborating, e.g. Black Dog, No Quarter. So, it's a winning strategy, and it works here. For Page's loss of performing standards, he begins using a device called a B-Bender, which bends his B string and gives his performances a country-music flavor - which he'd always had, but now even more pronounced. JPJ's synthesizer work is majestic. So, the totality is something that in some way pales, and in other ways reigns supreme.
It's perhaps worth noting that over the years, I've come to value this more than its predecessor, Presence. I had once had Presence as my favorite, for its tight guitar playing and bluesy lyrics. It's still great of course, but In Through The Out Door is a richer listening experience for me now. In fact, ironically, there's nothing quite like it from them for feeling like the dumps, than this and .. their first album.
As far as this, their final, complete release I still think it stands proud on it's own. I think the "controversy" around "Carouselambra" boggles my mind as it seems a logical musical progression along the lines of "The Rain Song" and "Achilles Last Stand" and is one of my favorite tunes. "Hot Dog" just goes to prove that Jimmy Page still can't play country guitar and presages Robert Plants collaboration with Allison Krauss, by decades to be sure. Really it's a bold step for the band, even if it didn't work. I wonder what would have happened if they had put "Darlene" on here instead of releasing it on Coda.
