rather average fare
on 17 January 2005
there is some good stuff on here, notably the title track, and Did I say that, and Man of steel. There is also some rubbish, Do it! is one of the worst songs I have heard from anyone. Generally, side 1 ( or chapter 1 as the cd has it ) is pretty good wheras chapter 2 is poor. There is the weakest Diane Warren song I have ever heard on side 2, You're right I was wrong. Perhaps it will grow on me.Hard to detect a tune on that one, very strange for the normally reliable Warren. The bonus track, a live Bat out of Hell, is actually excellent despite what another reviewer said, but hardly essential for any fan. I also liked his version of Dylan's Forever Young. To the reviewer who thinks this song is banal, all I can say is you should listen to some of Dylan's last few albums of original material to know what banal can be ( "Wiggle, wiggle" anyone? ).
Worth getting for the Meat fan, but try to pay about £5 for it.
