Should I fall out of love, my fire in the light
To chase a feather in the wind
Within the glow that weaves a cloak of delight
There moves a thread that has no end.

For many hours and days that pass ever soon
The tides have caused the flame to dim
At last the arm is straight, the hand to the loom
Is this to end or just begin?

All of my love, all of my love
Oh, all of my love to you now
All of my love, all of my love
Oh, all of my love to you now.

The cup is raised, the toast is made yet again
One voice is clear above the din
Proud Arianne one word, my will to sustain
For me, the cloth once more to spin.

Oh, all of my love, all of my love
Oh, all of my love for you now
All of my love, all of my love
Yes, all of my love to you, child.

Yours is the cloth, mine is the hand that sews time
His is the force that lies within
Ours is the fire, all the warmth we can find
He is a feather in the wind.

Oh, all of my love, all of my love
Oh, all of my love to you now
All of my love, oh-oh
Yes, all of my love to you now.

All of my love, all of my love
All of my love, love
Sometimes, sometimes, alright
Sometimes, sometimes, oh, all
Hey-hey-hey, hey-hey-hey
Ooh, ooh, yeah,
It's, all, all, all, all, all of my love, all of my love
All of my love to you now
All of my love, all of my love
All of my love
To, to you and you and you and you and yeah
I get a little bit lonely, just a little, just a little
Just a little bit lonely, just a little bit lonely
Hey, hey, hey, hey...

Great band. I loved them from the second I heard Whole Lotta Love. My first album was Led Zeppelin II. I didn't even have a record player! to listen to it on. I feel privileged to have seen them live in Scotland in 1972 at their peak. Long live Rock n Roll.

Don't understand this complaint. In this context all music influence is a rip off. Am I missing something?
Gave it a 6. I guess I was always a blues Led Zepplin fan. Something about those first 3 albums...

"sputtering to a halt"?
Bill, this is a pretty darn good album.
Always liked the b-bender guitar sound on this song, especially in that bridge section.
I can still see my frat house and the parties when I hear this album

FUN NOTE (if no one knows)

there are 6 distinct LP covers (a,b,c,d,e,f)
each a different perspective from people in the bar viewing guy with the hat

hence why when you bought it, it was wrapped in a brown craft paper - very cool


i believe Police Synchronicity has almost 30 variations (different color order and different photos)

oddly ennuff, both the "weakest albums from two great bands, with cool cover ideas
 
Interesting, I wonder if their record labels didn't have high expectations for these efforts, and tried to boost their desirability?
I celebrate the entire LZ catalog, and really find ITTOD a very refreshing album.  By the late 70s, the heavy raw sound was pretty much spent, and only being used by punk bands.  This showed that LZ was about to embark on a whole new direction, and it could have been amazing.  I wonder what the follow up album would have been like?  I bet it would have been so much more colorful/textural than prior albums, and lyrically contemplative.  

And the lyrics show Plant's pure talent, especially knowing the subject matter.
Well I think  it's a great album.

Hi Delaware, Now in April of 2019,
I would like to say that not only are there pretentious wine sniffing yuppies who love Led Zeppelin but recently when I was in having my aged hearing tested, the training assistant (22) beside the Dr. was impressed that THAT ear had been up against a 16 foot speaker at a LZ concert.  My Led Zeppelin ear has survived,too.
Gentle songs also welcomed.

For me, this song takes me back to one damn fine gal when I was in HS... she loved it, I loved IT! I'm going to close my eyes now...{#Cheers}

A sad song from a sad last album
I can understand why some would call it cheesy (almost) but I still love the song! It's nice to have the ability to come up with something different, very different in this case. Then again Black Dog and the Battle of Evermore don't sound too much alike either
And this is what makes LZ such a great band in my opinion. Thanks for playing it :-)

There are 44 LZ songs in the RP playlist and it's only been 2 hours since they played a different track this particular morning.

 
44 divided by 24 is 1.83 LZ songs per hour if you really insist on spreading them out over a full day.  Sounds like we're running way behind schedule to me.
This was Zep's way of telling us they were done.

Not everyone.  This a refined Zep that was going new places when the band's life was cut short by tragedy.
What a beautiful song!

Quite the opposite for me.  I was in junior high and high school when LZ was huge, albeit starting to ebb somewhat.  I largely ignored them except for the hits that I heard on the radio.  It was only recently that I began really listening to their music.  I have a whole different appreciation for them now, and wish I would have allowed myself to enjoy them back then.  For me, LZ is one of the few bands (along with Rush and a few others) that really stands the test of time.
 
Loved them from their 1st album.
Not all was gold but of all the bands I hold dear, they only get better with age.

This album and Led Zeppelin I are my two favourites by them.

Just shows to go ya....there's no accounting for taste!

Seriously?  Why?  They were innovative.  Jimmy Page is one of the most consummate guitar players in rock (and the other members were no slouches either {#Wink}).

Why not say that about the Beatles then?  I still enjoy Zeppelin to this day.



I always thought his son drowned.

Just because you're a repetitious boor doesn't mean you're not talking arrant nonsense.

Interesting, for me when that synth solo kicks in it's one of the most exciting moments in the Led Zep canon. It makes the song and sounds just like pure joy to me. Kinda like when the solo kicks in on "In My Life" by The Beatles.

I was too, back in the day. This album never cut it for me.

I enjoy the occasionally Led Zeppelin track here - RP seems to play them just enough - but this isn't one of the most exciting choices available from them.

I'll restrain myself - this song is a flaming turd (always has been) and is not up to snuff for Radio Paradise.  Every time I hear it I think of John Bonham sitting back there playing his part and thinking "How did it come to this?"
So.... how much of his love?

I agree wholeheartedly. Zep lost their "appeal?" In my opinion long, long ago...yawn...Page was also the least interesting of 3 Yardbird guitarists INHO

Lauri Anderson's "song" Let X=X has a line "thanks for introducing me to the chief" with one of those "forced" key changes right at the word "introducing". Until just now, when I looked up the lyrics, I always thought it said "thanks for introducing me to the cheap", which I though was intended as a jab at songs that use the forced key change thing. Oh well. I like my version of her song better.

Unfortunately, this is still getting a lot of airplay on "Classic Rock" stations as well. Too much, in my opinion. To tell the truth, I'm kinda burnt out on this one.

Love the synth. When that solo kicks in, it's one of my favorite Zeppelin moments, it has the same power as the piano solo in "In My Life" by The Beatles. Love that RP plays some mainstream stuff too. It says to me "We play great music. Period. We don't favor what is not popular to get some sort of lame cred, or by what IS popular, we just play great music." LOVE THAT!

I understand there are some who don't like this, but why the arrogance? Personally, I DO like it... it cracked me up that the year this CD was released it made (IIRC) Rolling Stone's Top Ten list as well as the "biggest disappointment" award. I LOVE it when bands piss off their "fans" who would rather they turn out record after record of the same damn thing. Believe it or not, most musicians don't stay up all night worrying if people will love their new CD. I would guess Plant, Page, and Paul Jones would laugh their assess off about some of the negative comments here. It really doesn't matter, they created music that was important to them. In the end, they have a body of work that is varied and impressive, including this CD... cheezy synths or not.

How ironic. I took a break from RP tonight for an hour or so to listen/watch a Zeppelin DVD complilation loaned to me by a co-worker. Watching such gems as "What is and what should never be", and We're gonna groove" from the Royal Albert Hall in 1970, listening to the passion and intensity that these guys played with, and the dynamics and energy that they possesed in these early days really makes it clear why they were such a tour de force in the day. Then I come back to RP just in time for this dismal, flaccid piece...
