This double CD of songs by the incredible Meat Loaf is one of the best that I have listened to in a very long time. The mixture of styles is wonderful from the classic number one "I would do anything for love" to the more orchestral "A kiss is a terrible thing to waste". The superb duets with Cher and Ellen Foley never fail to lift my spirits after a long day at college and "Heaven Can Wait" is the perfect tune to relax to. I would recommend this album to any Meat Loaf fan and I praise his ability to reach out and touch me with his lyrics.

I felt i had to give this 5 as it is a classic album, and brings together all our favourite Meatloaf songs. With possibly the best songs being 'I would do anything for love' and 'Heaven can wait'. There are a couple of songs that dont match up to the rest but the good ones are so good that they allow a few bad ones. A great CD for those that love Meatloaf but dont have the money to buy the whole collection.

Ever since 'Meatloaf' emerged during the seventies he's brought us some
of the all-time 'great' Rock-Ballads.
His vocal range and sense of the dramatic has certainly entertained us in
both in'Video' and 'Song'
Remarkably he's only actually had the one chart topper here in the U.K that
being 'I'd Do Anything For Love' (But I won't do That) however his success
has really been in the sales of his albums down the years.
This double CD presentation harbours most of the material he is best remembered
for over the past 30-40 years.
There are many favourites on board including ....'You Took The Words Right out
of My Mouth' (Hot Summer Night)....'I Want My Money Back'.....'Modern Girl'....
'Paradise at the Lost and Found'.....'Heaven Can Wait'.......'I'd Do Anything for
Love' (But I won't Do That)....'I'd Lie For You and that's The Truth' ....'Dead Ringer
For Love'.....and of course perhaps the Greatest-Rock-Ballad of all-time(and yes
it's a complete version) ...'Bat Out Of Hell' (which charted in the UK 1979, suprisingly
only peaking at number 15', it re-charted again in 1993 reaching number 8' to
my thinking if ever there was an automatic number one, I'd have bet money on that
one ?.....the 2-Disc set also has maybe my favourite 'Meatloaf' number on board
that being.....'Two Out of Three Ain't Bad'
There are of course many more great numbers on board to cherish.
This artist is without question a all-time 'Rock Legend' every collector must surely
own at least one of his 'Best Of' albums' ?

MEATLOAF and JIM STEINMAN are by far the most deserving musicians of "Theatrical Rock"! I have been listening to Meatloaf for over 20 years

and the Songs still capture me and I never tire of listening to them.

My 9 year old Son Knows the words of most of the songs by Heart!

This Album is a good variation of Meatloaf's most popular tracks.

I Heartly Recommend IT!

This double cd brings together some of the best of Meat Loafs songs, with new mixes and different tempos for classic 'Meat' songs. This aptly named album truly is the very best of Meat Loaf
