Risk or Rut?
To coincide with the upcoming release of the deluxe edition of Led Zeppelin’s In Through The Out Door, we decided to revisit the album that marked the end of their career, and which remains the most divisive album of the legendary rock group’s discography. Dogged by break-up rumours and declining record sales, In Through The Out Door was the band’s tentative response to a changing musical landscape. In this episode, we discuss the album’s production and its critical and commercial reception, while speculating on what might have been had the band stuck around for the 80’s. Each song will also be critically assessed.
Originally released: August 15th, 1979.
