Man, they don't make guitar players like Jimmy Page anymore. It's such a lost art.

And I agree with Howard...how does YouTube not get sued over stuff like this??

That was an album of throw-aways that the label released after the demise of the band. It doesn't count.

Alright, now that the specs have been tightened up, LarryBS is on the clock...make an argument for 'In Through the Out Door' being the best album by Led Zeppelin, if you had to choose 'one'.

I wouldn't pick this as best, but it a is great album in its own right. More of a John Paul Jones album, really. It is well documented that Jimmy was ravaged by herion when this was recorded so Jonesy took the reins, thus the album is a bit of a departure from the band's previous work. Much more synth and piano oriented than any of the others. Bonham's drumming is incredible throughout. His playing on Fool In The Rain is classic. Plant sounds good although by this time his vocal style and range have degraded since the early days. He actually blew his voice out sometime around 1974 and had to adapt new techniques and rely more on reverb. Listen to the difference between say, Since I've Been Loving You and In The Evening, and recent stuff like Shine It All Around. Sounds good but doesn't sound like the same vocalist. He's lost that raw power and note transition that he started out with. OK, I'm getting carried away here..

Anyway, I love the album, though I don't have any explanation for why Hot Dog is on there.

'In Through the Out Door' was a good High School album for me, shows how old I am, but it pales next to the others, but stands up to 'Presence', hell, it's probably better.

I didn't care much for the synth sound on the album and 'Hot Dog' seems like it was added in as a joke. But all of that is nothing compared to the one line I can't help but cringe to EVERYTIME I hear it. The line is the 'feather in the wind' from 'All of My Love'. I don't know why it bugs me, but it always has. Still all in all a good, solid record and you're right, the drumming was incredible on that record. I have a boot of Bonham drum tracks from those sessions, very impressive, but he always was. But...not a good enough argument for the record being their best.

I can't....I don't own that one. But I'm sure there are other Zep fans that could make a case for it.......
