a 'ft The Jackson Son, Jackson, Tennessee 19 rolling stone Zeppelin's insular music relevant "In Through the Out Door:" Led Zeppelin (Swan Song) Of all the major superstars who have released records in the last half of 1979 from Bob Dylan and Randy Newman to Fleetwood Mac and the Eagles Led Zeppelin alone has ignored every trend: There is no reflection on "In Through C review 5 the Out Door" of a world which contains punk or Kiss or Dire Straits or disco, all things which were of much less consequence when "Presence," the last Zeppelin studio LP, was released. Somehow, this insular music sounds precisely as relevant as ever, perhaps because Jimmy Page and company live only for themselves and their hardcore, hard rock fans. Certainly, Zeppelin remains the foremost heavy metal rock act in the world, and if there is no attempt to broaden the band's base here (aside from the dabble- in Caribbean rhythm in the bridge of "Fool in the Rain") at least what they do, they do well and consistently. Left to love m or leave 'm, I'd probably choose the latter but in a world of compromises, "In Through the Out Door" can feel like a satisfactory one even at its most blathering excessive. Still can't stand that drummer, though. ( Records are rated from one star to five in ascending order of quality.) Coprioht 1979 by Kino Features Syndicate. Inc. Jf pw lift .uk iM
