Before I begin. Jim Steinman and Meatloaf have produced some of the most memorable, moving,spine tingling and amusing music which it is a privilege to have listened to and enjoyed. Served up with a tongue in cheek attitude it has been mesmerising, evocative and superb. I bought this album. This however is utterly dreadful. It is live music at its worst. It takes an album which was such a sentinel in rock music and completely devours it, rehashes it and spits it out in little pieces. I'm sorry but the melodies get lost in the over enthusiastic vocal dalliances that so often spoil a live performance - there is nothing wrong with moving away from the original melodic line occasionally, but this does it far too often, so often that it simply loses the plot. Again its fine to change the tempo and add the occasional pause for effect but this album just becomes tedious after a few minutes and I found myself so much wanting to go back and listen to the original to reaffirm just how much I loved this work. Very sad. I wanted this to be a wonderful reworking of a tremendous material with better sound quality, lush orchestral arrangements added and instead this became an exercise even worse than the dire classic rock albums of the 70s. Please - do us a favour, re-record bat out of hell in the studio, add the orchestral arrangements please but stick to those marvelous melodic lines we know and love, cut out the dramatic pauses which may work live but just sound daft on an album and listen to what you have done critically. Then, if it truly lives up to the original recording and goes one better, then release it. If not, then leave it well alone. Please!

The idea of Bat Out Of Hell, re-recorded live with an 85-piece orchestra, sounds too good to miss - and it really is! From the opening bars of the title track, it is all too evident that this is something special.
Having several months ago bought the concert DVD from which this recording was taken, I finally decided to get this release too. I was initially put off by somewhat lukewarm reviews of the CD package, however, I'm glad to say that they were un-merited. The first CD contains recordings of all 7 tracks from Bat Out Of Hell, lifted from two concerts in Melbourne in Feb 2004, as well as 'Anything For Love' and Couldn't Have Said It Better' from the same shows. Almost all of the 9 tracks have been edited for the CD, removing long pieces of dialogue and goof-offs, and I think it was a wise decision, as they are best accompanied by visuals and it keeps things moving musically. 'Heaven Can Wait' is exclusive to the CD, not appearing in the separately-available concert DVD's program, and it's a gem. The orchestration for this song, especially during the instrumental, is just stunning!
Then we have the bonus DVD that comes with this package, which is rather good too actually. A teaser of the concert DVD is present, in the form of 'Two Out Of Three Ain't Bad' in it's entirity. Then there's the music videos for 'Couldn't Have Said It Better' and 'Did I Say That?' - again a nice touch, although the videos from the Welcome To The Neighbourhood album would have been nice too. Three audio-only concert tracks are present also, available in either stereo or surround sound. One of which is 'Dead Ringer For Love'from the afore-mentioned DVD, but the other two are exclusive to this set - 'Rock n Roll Dreams Come Through' and best of all, 'I'd Lie For You (And That's The Truth)'.

Bat out of hell is one of the best albums ever. This edition with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra takes it to a whole new level. The Orchestra gives it a much fuller sound, once you've listened to this version you'll never want to listen to the old version again. His performance isn't the best he's ever given but he doesn't ruin it, far from it, he gives it a fuller flavour and he certainly hasn't lost the passion. The extras are a bonus although I hardly ever watch/listen to them, I would recommend the DVD as well.
As Meat says you are a real fan if you have this CD.

For the fans of symphonic rock. Very good songs with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra. Very cheap so why not.
