My friends and I were huge Zep fans until they released “In Through The Out Door,” which every one of us hated. It was like Zeppelin Disco.... ungh!

Actually "In Through The Out Door" is my favorite Led Zep album. Probably because it was the only LZ album I was old enough to buy when it first came out. My favorite tracks from that album were "Fool In The Rain", "Carouselambra" and "All Of My Love" which all hold up well today. There were a couple of throwaways that didn't belong there like "Hot Dog" but overall, a strong album that was to take them in a different direction in the 1980s had Bonham not died. If I had to pick my least favorite LZ album, it would have been "Presence".
A few years after the LZ break-up, Robert Plant released a single called "Big Log". That is one of my favorite songs of alltime and probably the best best indication of what Zeppelin might have sounded like in the 80s had they continued as a band.
