Why are people rating the album? We know this is a classic. Lol. But what is the opinion on the remastered effort and bonus material.
Zeppelin at their worst...
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.
The Most Underrated Album of All Time
Led Zeppelin knows how to make a great album. Sure it's not their best, but it is certainly their most under appreciated, and marked an interestingly different direction for the band

Sounds like a bad rehearsal of forgotten songs, and no producer to bring out something at least barely listenable.

Probably tied with III for my fav Zep record. Leans in some surprising new direction while never losing what was truly "them". Love it!

Amazing! Love the Zep. Brings you back and moves you forward. Timeless and current! Today's bands should learn from the masters.
In Through the Out Door (Deluxe Edition) 2015
Good album--- I like the compilation of songs; one of my favorite Zeppelin tunes, " In the Evening," is in rough version. In total, definitely worth having in your Zeppelin collection.
In Through The Out No
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!"
