If you're to get Meatloaf.. GET THIS ONE!
on 13 September 2003
I'm not going to go on about how outstanding this collection is, because you all should know that. I am just going to say that if you want to nuy a Meatloaf CD.. GET THIS ONE. 'I would do any thing for love' asisde. It has all his best tracks.
Bat Out Of Hell - 10/10 : If you havn't heard this track before, it is the most intising piece of music you will ever hear. MeatLoaf is most famouse for this song, and rightly so, its a mammoth 9-10 minutes long and you wotn want to turn it off even if, like me, you've heard it hundreds of times. Jim Steinman is a legend.
Read 'em And Weep - 9/10: This song takes a good 3 minutes before its at its best. But at its best, its better than any on the album.
Midnight At The Lost And Found - 7/10: I have to say my least favourite. I cant say why. It may be different for you though.
Two Out Of Three Aint Bad - 9/10: Some say this is the best rock ballard of all time.... And i'm not going to argue with them. You dont hear the big build up, or the huge meat loaf voice, but the song is excuisite.
Dead Ringer For Love - 9/10: Fast, catchy and great! Cher does at great job. Her and Meat are in and out of lines like no other song ive ever heard. Geniuse.
Modern Girl - 8/10: Again, not the best track but a solid tune. Not much to say about this one really..
I'm Gonna Love Her For Both Of Us - 10/10: My personal favourite. Huge voice, Huge build up (the opposite of 'two out of three aint bad') and a Huge song. Lyrics arent the best but the music playing is awsome. I cant find any more superlatives to throw at this one.
You Took The Words Right Out Of My Mouth - 9/10: I wouldn't have been surprised if he released this one at chrismas with this ring. Great feel-good song.
Razors Edge - 9/10: Another one of my favourites. This track is consistent all the way through.
Paradise By The Dashboard Light - 10/10: wow.
