LOL, sorry Mike! I have to agree with Mord though. "Pretentious" is a good way to describe Zep IV. I just never connected with that record---musically, lyrically, or aesthetically.

One of my favorite quotes, but I can't remember if it was Joe Strummer or Paul Simonon, but regarding Zep IV he said "When it came out I went up to the store to get a copy, but when I saw the album cover it made me want to puke."

So punk rock   :D

I have to admit though that I really like In Through the Out Door. I don't think it's a pretentious record but definitely a departure from the early rockers.

In Through the Out Door-1979. This Led Zeppelin album is probably my favorite Led Zeppelin studio album. Followed by Led Zeppelin IV, III and Houses of the Holy.

In Through, was my first Led Zeppelin album I ever purchased and the only one I had before buying others in 1979. I heard plenty of Zeppelin's music on FM and AM radio in the 70s, just never really had no interest in pursuing their albums. Until hearing, In Through the Out Door at a friends house. That sealed it. I was hooked and I wanted to hear more Zeppelin on a regular basis.

In Through the Out Door may not be Zepp's greatest achievement as a studio album. However it is in fact an incredible LP, and that is a subjective opinion of all Zeppelin's albums.

Also, I wanted to add. John Bonham is an an influence towards me becoming a drummer. Although Bonham died in 1979, he( Bonham) is still viable in the Drum community. Bonham's drum work on In Through is so bad a**, I cannot even begin how to articulate.

  Carouselambra, South Bound Saurez, I'm Going to Crawl, In the Evening,  Fool in the Rain and Hot Dog are probably my six favorite tracks of the LP.  Carouselambra, wow! There is something about that song that words cannot describe.

And here lies the problem for me. I'm more into the "deep cuts" than the hits. The songs that aren't played a million times on the radio, are usually the more interesting and innovative ones. My girlfriend was a huge Beatles fan. We bought that comprehensive hits CD that came out a few years ago. After the first few songs, it became really tiresome. We haven't played it since. On the other hand, I played their "White Album" the other day. It sounded fresh and contemporary. No hits, just great songs.

No hits? What about "Why Don't We Do It In The Road"?

 Ray Davies - Other People's Lives (2006)

 Great, great solo album by Ray Davies. Better than most later Kinks l.p.s.

 Ray Davies - Thanksgiving Day E.P. (2005)
 
 There are rock songs for almost any holiday. To my knowledge, this is the only one about Turkey Day. Great songs, as well.

I'm glad you pointed out the drumming on that record. Bonzo is my favorite hard rock drummer. I can't remember who produced "In Through the Out Door," but I love how the drums sound in the mix. Bonzo's drumming on Fool in the Rain never sounded better imo.

I want to say Jimmy Page produced In Through the Out Door. Bonham's drumming on that album is awesome.
