In Through the Out Door (Deluxe Edition) Tracklist:
This is one of my personal favorite Led Zeppelin albums. This album has a great flow, track after track. Also, this album has great vocals, great drum solos, and great guitar solos as well. Finally, the instruments wrap around the vocals like no other, and intertwine perfectly. Definitely looking forward to the next limited play album, and extended play album from Led Zeppelin.
It is a good thing this turned out to be their last album. They would have drifted into 80's synth garbage at this rate. They surely did enough coke collectively for that to sound like a good direction to move towards. Also, I find it hilarious that iTunes made "Caruoselambra" an "Album Only" purchase, considering it is THE WORST SONG Zeppelin ever made. Buy this album if you simply want to own them all, but don't expect much from it.
"In the Evening" was well worth buying, it is so much better than the original version. You can understand the lyrics for one thing. I also bought "Blot" because I'm pretty sure I read on here that the reverb didn't exist in the rough mixes and what the hell it's exactly the same, just lower like someone else mentioned. Got screwed on that one. Oh well, at least I didn't buy the whole album. 5 stars for ITE though.
Not my favorite Zep album. But let me just say this. How many artists would love to have their songs played as much as fool in the rain and all of my love have been over the years. Not their purest Zep stuff, but they managed to have two of the most played songs on rock radio. Pretty good id say.
What? What happened here? Everything just sounds like Jimmy Page just lowered the song and was played through a horrible audio recorder. The only tracks worth buying or "In The Evening (Rough Mix)" or "The Epic (Carouselambra) [Rough Mix]" but guess what! You have to buy the whole album to listen to the epic. Please, anyone, tell me what's different in "South Bound Piano," "Fool In The Rain (Rough Mix)," "Hot Dog (Rough Mix)," and "All My Love (Rough Mix!"
For those not in the know, this was Zeppelin's final album, and it's not hard to hear why. Any brilliance left from the early 70's was at this point long gone and what was left was, God help us, sludge like "All My Love" and "In The Evening". John Bonham died, as I remember, just a few months later and at that point Plant and Page closed shop. But like I said not a great album, not even a good album. Unless you are trying to complete your collection, your money would be better spent elsewhere.
Although not part of the famous early numbered series of albums, 'In Through the Out Door’ is a masterpiece. The timing of the recording, the year after Robert Plant’s young son died from a virus, must surely have contributed to the lush, emotion-packed vocals on tracks like the beautiful, melodic “All of my Love”, and the single "Fool in the Rain”. 'In Through the Out Door’ was certainly a departure for Led Zep, it’s a bit softer, more melodic, and the 'mythological' lyrics Robert Plant wrote for earlier albums were gone. But it’s undoubtedly a Led Zeppelin album, Jimmy Page’s insanely brilliant guitar skills and John ‘Bonzo’ Bonham’s manic drumming assure that, and personally I like it nearly as much as "Led Zeppelin II”, one of the great rock albums of all time, Plants vocals on “All of my Love” are sublime. Critics slapped it around a bit and it was said they were going to return to their former hard-driven style for the next album, but it wasn’t to be. Bonzo died from “alcohol asphyxiation” just a year after the release of this album, and the band parted ways. The surviving members did various concerts, projects and records after Bonham’s death, including concerts with Bonham’s son on the skins, but these were always temporary affairs. There might even be more to come. They did a show just a few years ago, and Page showed he still has the goods on the doco “It might get Loud”, so look for 3 long haired guys in wheelchairs and open shirts, and who knows…. But seriously, if you like the sound of anything Zep has done, get this, you’ll love it.
