This is a brilliant collection of some of Meat Loaf's great but lesser known material. At the time I purchased this album I had only got The very best of (which made me the huge fan of Meat I am) and Bat out of Hell III so this collection was an easy purchase for me to make being that it had many songs that I had never heard. The album artwork is clever because it is presented like an old leather-bound book with wear marks on the cover. This implies a view into the archived past of the singers' back catalogue. The booklet has no inner details or pictures, just the song credits. The album uses possibly the most popular and best song on the album in the title.

Overall this is a quality collection of some fantastic Meat Loaf songs which many new and casual fans would have not heard but you're in for a treat because these are some hidden gems! Besides the 2 songs from Meat's original Bat out of Hell; Heaven can wait and All revved up with no place to go (from '77) the rest of the songs are from his 80's material. You can really pick up on the 80's sound in many of the songs and it's mixed in well with the usual Meat Loaf style. If you like a whole spectrum of Meat's styles then you'll love this collection but if you're only a fan of his more traditional piano based music then this possibly won't be too impressive. 7 of 12 songs are written by Jim Steinman who wrote some of Meat Loaf's greatest songs including I'd do anything for love, so this reflects the quality of songs here.

Read 'em and weep is a fantastic song with some interesting vocals and a powerful chorus. Rock n' roll mercenaries is a song I loved from my 1st listen - it really has an 80's feel to it and it's got a fantastically catchy rhythm.

excellent recorded quality and good value for number of tracks on it . Would recommend buying from Amazon to family and friends, although I don't have any friends who are into this genre of music!
