15 Songs, 1 Hour 24 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

This 2016 album reunited the theatrical Bat Out of Hell rocker with songwriter/producer Jim Steinman—and the results are suitably Wagnerian. Opening opus “Who Needs the Young” is vaudeville with volume, while soul sisters Ellen Foley and Karla DeVito wail along with Meat Loaf against the thrilling wall-of-sound production of "Going All the Way Is Just the Start (A Song in 6 Movements)."

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

Bummer

I can't help but think about professional athletes who hang around too long and tarnish their great careers with sub-standard performances. This is not the Meat Loaf I want to remember. His voice is shot and all the studio tricks and duets aren't enough to save this recording. As for Jim Steinman's songs, who can tell if they're any good because the vocals are so bad. Think I'll go listen to Bat Out Of Hell.

Meat Loaf and Jim Steinman together again

What more needs to be said? It's MEAT. It's JIM. The way Steinman songs are supposed to be sung!

The three songs released so far have been amazing and I cannot wait for the full album launch in September.

Oh Boy...

He's lost his voice. The vocals are awful.
