REVIEW: Led Zeppelin - In Through The Out Door
Updated: Jan 30, 2022
Led Zeppelin is one of the most important and influential bands of all time. “In Through The Out Door” is their last studio Album and the epic conclusion to their monumental careers. The unique and creative album title is symbolic of their long, legendary, work creating some of the most important rock albums of all time and the beautiful death and high note of an album on which they decided to end on. The name is a play on words expressing the way they came back into the music scene after a three year hiatus to end their career as a band. The album was released in 1979 one year before the death of all time great drummer John Bonham. In addition, throughout this seven song compilation John Paul Jones lays down some of the most unique and virtually recognizable keyboard riffs that rock has ever received. “South Bound Saurez”, “Fool In The Rain”, and “All My Love” are instantly recognizable thanks to the keyboard riffs written by John Paul Jones. This album was a whole different kind of sound for Zeppelin opposed to their previous albums. This synthesizer-heavy , slower, take of their previous style represented a simultaneous beginning and end to what we all know as Led Zeppelin.
