I bought this way back in '79,the day it came out,i loved it then and i love it now,im always stunned at the negativity towards this album,along with,Zep 3, Zep 4 and Physical graffitti i believe its one of their best,i would always listen to this in preference to say zep 2/presence or Houses,this was a band stretching out not throwing in the towel.I've lost count of the times i've said this but closed minds just wont accept this disc,a band damned for trying something different,was that not all the rage at the end of the 70's,i doubt if they would have remained on this track,im sure the hard rock overlords would have returned had circumstances not denied us.

Just listen,enjoy and marvel at a band experimenting,yes some old rock and blues are still here but with JPJ getting his turn in the limelight following Jimmy's on PRESENCE then enjoy what is here: a magnificent opener 'In The Evening' with its hypnotic,thrusting guitar,'Carouselambra' one of their best epics,the poignant 'All My Love' and the intensity of Plants performance on 'Im Gonna Crawl',so what if 'South Bound Suarez' & 'Fool In The Rain' are a side step from the band's past,listen with open mind, they are two excellent songs,only 'Hot Dog' lets the side down.

A thoroughly entertaining disc,unfairly maligned,should be appreciated for its class and the attempt to do something a little different,thats what Zeppelin's great strength was,not conforming to everyone else's view of them,doing what they wanted.

Is this album Led Zeppelin's equivalent to Yes's "Drama" album? It would seem so. I for one like "In Through the Out Door" although I must admit I can see no redeeming features in "Hot Dog" whatsoever. I like the mood changes, the anguish and the anthemic quality of tracks like "In the evening." I will upset a few Zep fans now, I never thought their work was consistant and no I dont think "Stairway to Heavan" was their finest moment. "Kashmere" is pretty much at the top for me and "No Quater." Back to "In Through the Out Door," "Carouselambra" is a storming track and
"All of my love" /"I,m gonna Crawl" show a side of the band that some fans perhaps wouldn't like to acknowledge. My one regret is that like Thin Lizzy I never saw them live. I was away when they played the double weekend at Kebworth back in 1979.

Zeppelin's 8th and final studio album was recorded at Polar Studios in Stockholm in the final weeks of 1978 and released in August 1979, just over a year before Bonzo's death brought about the demise of the band. ITtOD is usually seen as a `transitional' album with a character all its own.

As `Presence' was Jimmy Page's project, it's John Paul Jones who really shines on ITtOD with many of the writing credits shared with Plant, and JPJ's keyboard work and arrangements drive much of the action. Robert Plant said at the time: "'Hey hey mama say the way you move' didn't really have a great deal of import any more. `In Through The Out Door' is more conscientious and less animal".

The opener, `In the Evening', sounds like it should have appeared on the `Houses of the Holy' album, such is the similarity in style. The one issue with this track is that Plant's vocals are too far back in the mix, and the production might have been improved. `Fool in the Rain' is real top 20 material and has received endless airplay on US radio stations. `Carousalambra' is a great track, probably the most ambitious on the album.

`All my love' is dedicated to Plant's deceased son. A surprisingly energetic and upbeat composition with JPJ adding some fine synthesizer work, it's one of only two songs ever recorded by the band where Page has no writing credits (the other one is `South Bound Suarez' again on this album).

The star track for me is the closer `I'm gonna crawl'; a classic long, slow blues number in the mode of `Since I've been loving you' and `Tea for one'. In Zeppelin's 11-year stellar career Plant has rarely been heard on better form than here: surely no other white European singer ever captured the blues with such power, such mastery of the dynamics, such feeling.

I brought this album to complete the collection, and I wasn't sure what to expect as a lot of reviews have been negative towards the album. After listening to the album I was very surprised with the negativity towards it. Yes it is different than previous Zep records, as it is more keyboard lead as opposed to heavy guitar riffs. But it still rocks and some of JPJ's playing is fantastic especially the keyboard riff and the rocking bass behind carouselambra. The album also features a timeless classic with its opener "in the evening" which is arguably as good as anything they have ever done. Those two songs are not just the only positives to take from the album I find that album flows nicely and all tracks (excluding maybe hot dog) are very good and enjoyable to listen too.

So to sum up yes the album is softer and less guitar lead, but is still a mighty album worthy of anybodys music collection, especially a Zep fan.

This was my introduction to Led Zeppelin, the first Zep LP I bought as a 15 year old. It got me hooked and my ELO habit soon faded. So this album has a special resonance for me and when I bought it on CD it was the first of the original albums I bought on CD. In the Evening is a superb opening with Jimmy Page on top form. Southbound Suarez and Fool in the Rain have a latino feel and many Zep fans hate these tracks but to me they just show that the band could go where they wished. Hot Dog, however, is a waste of space and spoils the whole album, it should have been on Coda instead of Darlene. What was side two opens with the prog of Carouselambra before going into the tender ballad on, All of my Love. The album closes out with the bluesy I'm Gonna Crawl.

In Through The Out Door may not have been Led Zeppelin's magnus opus but it does not deserve the opprobium heaped on it by many Zepheads. Well apart from Hot Dog!
