5.0 out of 5 stars There Is No Better Meat loaf CD Available!, 8 Jan. 2005
This review is from: The Very Best of Meat Loaf (Audio CD)
Many people have criticised this collection because it doesn't feature all of his best songs. My advise to those people is to buy all of Meat Loaf's albums and not buy a 'best of' CD that they are clearly not satisfied with the contents of the CD's. This collection, in my opinion does in fact feature the vast majority of Meat Loaf's songs.
Firstly, It features 5 of the 7 songs from his most succesful album, 'Bat Out Of Hell' and features 4 songs from his second most succesful album, 'Back Into Hell.'
Secondly, there are some great songs here that are not on either of these album's.
My favourite Meat Loaf songs are all included in this collection, including, 'Bat Out Of Hell,' 'You Took The Words Right Out Of My Mouth' and 'I'd Lie For You & That's The Truth'
Also included are essentials, such as, 'I'd Do Anything For Love' and 'Two Out Of Three Ain't Bad.'
Overall, this is definately the CD to buy if you are simply wanting the majority of Meat Loaf's hits, as it features the best of both Bat Out Of Hell albums and it has many good songs outwith those albums!

Very Best of can't fault Grame Noble's review about the Very Best of Meat Loaf, infact i agree with him 100% although i would like to add that there is two version's of this double CD. I have the 1998 version which has more tracks than the 2006 CD which has less songs, which you will see for yourself if you compare both albums, & i have Bat Out of Hell 2 Back In to Hell & some of the tracks are the same as The Very Best of Album. I'm an oldie at 56yrs & even i know if you want all the tracks buy Bat Out of Hell 1. 2 & 3 plus the Very Best Of Meat Loaf if you want all his songs, does 1, 2 & 3 not make it clear/obvious to you?

Just an addition to the comment above from Andy13bt.

There are three listed (Discogs) versions of this compilation:

1998 on Sony
1998 on Virgin
2003 on Virgin (there are also 2006 and 2009 editions listed on Amazon but I don't know what they are. There was a 2011 version released in Australia, but it is identical to the Virgin 1998 and 2003 versions)

The confusion regarding the tracklisting arises on the two 1998 versions. If you get the Sony one, CD1 begins with "Home By Now/No Matter What" and ends with "Heaven Can Wait". CD2 begins with "I'd Do Anything For Love" and ends with "Bat Out Of Hell".

The Virgin edition begins with "Bat Out Of Hell" and ends with "Life Is A Lemon And I Want My Money Back" on CD1. CD2 begins with "I'd Do Anything For Love" and ends with "Nocturnal Pleasure".

Finally, the Virgin 2003 edition is just a reissue of their 1998 compilation with the same running order as before.

ALL versions feature the same 18 tracks and it just depends on which running order you'd prefer as to which one to get. Personally, I think any Meat Loaf compilation should always start with "Bat Out Of Hell" and to that end I bought the Virgin 1998 edition. For a start it was cheaper (99p!), and secondly I think the running order is better and flows more successfully than the Sony 1998 release.

Of course, if you're a newbie or you're not bothered about any of this, then just get whichever version is cheapest on Marketplace. It is fabulous value for money at nearly two hours of fantastic, dramatic and unsurpassable music and, I think, the best "Best Of" compilation to buy.
