iTunes Review

It wouldn’t be a Meat Loaf album without grandiose visions. After all, with that vocal range and natural ability to turn every moment into life or death, it would be a shame if he didn’t give the people the greatest show on earth. With veteran producer Rob Cavallo giving the album a contemporary edge and songwriters such as Jon Bon Jovi, American Idol’s Kara DioGuardi, legendary song doctor Desmond Child, and the Darkness’ Justin Hawkins writing songs for a classic rock band of the ages — that’s Steve Vai and Queen’s Brian May on guitars and House’s Hugh Laurie (?!) on piano — the result is an album of epic absurdity that makes for the perfect date by the dashboard light. There’s a story here somewhere about a wounded soldier, but the real attraction is the delightful bombast of tunes like “Peace On Earth”, “If I Can’t Have You”, “Love Is Not Real  / Next Time You Stab Me In the Back” and “Elvis In Vegas”, where all the hyper-emotions of adolescence come back raging at the dying of the light. The special edition includes ten live cuts, including many noteworthy highlights from throughout his career.

Customer Reviews

Wow!

What a great record! It sounds current, fresh and is downright superb. Meat Loaf's voice sounds like never before, totally rejuvinated - he could be 35. I was expecting good things from this album but this has surpassed expectations. Put simply this is a great rock album.

Seriously good

I had the misfortune of reading some newspaper reviews of this album (Guardian, Independent) and I had very low expectations for this album.

The criticisms of the album were that the songs were too loud, too ostentatious, too operatic and over-the-top. Hello??!! This is what Meatloaf is all about!!

From the first track, to the final, this album is a work of perfection...I agree with the other reviewers that this is his best album since Bat II.

PS: Don't waste time looking for the unedited version of this album on iTunes...it's only the video of Los Angeloser that has been made safe for the radio.

A Rock epic

Wat can I say!!!!! Bloody awesome! I expected nothing else! Can't stop playin it! Can't wait for tour!

Years Active: '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Marvin Lee Aday is a singer and occasional actor who, for reasons never definitively answered, has recorded under the name Meat Loaf. In all likelihood a childhood nickname, the tag stuck, and many puns followed as the performer -- who tipped the scales at well over 300 pounds -- became one of the biggest chart acts of the 1970s before enjoying a commercial renaissance two decades later. Meat Loaf was born in Dallas, Texas. The product of a family of gospel singers, he moved to Los Angeles in 1967...
