Album Review

Perhaps the international success of Bat Out of Hell II came as a surprise, but it was no shock that the follow-up, Welcome to the Neighborhood, was not, either commerically and artistically. While it nearly duplicates the sound and style of Meat Loaf's previous hit album, Neighborhood was recorded without the guidance of Jim Steinman, who was responsible for the sound of both Bat Out of Hell albums. The music has all of the elements that made the previous records hits — there are layers of guitars, orchestras, voices — but without Steinman, it's just not the same.

Customer Reviews

One of the Most Complete (and Drastically Under-Rated) Albums Ever.

This album is every bit as epic as any of the "Bat" albums. This is a classic rock bred with gothic metal broadway style musical. It is the kind of album that you really have to sit down and listen to start to finish in order to truly appreciate its complexity and emotional journey. Meat Loaf's voice I believe has never been stronger than it is on this album. Sadly this album has been greatly overlooked by many Meat fans... if this album only had "Bat" somewhere in the title, it would have been every bit as successful as the other 3.

This is a great album!!!!

Two of these songs are on the 2 disc greatest hits album, but there are two or three more songs on this CD that could have also been on the greatest hits disc. My favorite songs are Running for the Red Light (it is a great rock song), Where Angels Sing, I'd Lie For You, and Not a Dry Eye in the House. The last two songs are on the greatest hits CD.

Welcome to the Neighborhood

If you like Meatloaf's work you will not be disapointed by this effort. His understanding of the human condition when it comes to boys, girls and the back seat of a car are beyond explaination. The music ain't bad ether.

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...
