3.0 out of 5 stars Another Heap of Meat is Always Welcome May 9 2004
Format:Audio CD
Amen! It's just great to have this kind of music released on a well produced album of freshness in the 21st century, given the types of music most money goes towards in order to get a polished sound these days. My following words are going to be somewhat critical, but that shouldn't horribly overshadow the fact that the album is a long-needed dose of fun that should make you feel good in a time where the scattered music industry is best represented by a question mark.
Bats I AND II are some of the most out-of-this-world achievements in the last 50 years, so unfortunately even great music itself must be ranked in comparison to other music from the same ilk. This is NOT as good as the aforementioned albums. The diversity, songwriting, and "masterpieceness" of it all is lacking. I'm sure the lack of Jim Steinman has to have something to do with it, given he is one HELL of a songwriter, but I think it would be too judgemental to point fingers (especially at someone who isn't even there to receive them). Indeed, despite this "holdover" of an album, my faith has not been dwindled at all in the Mighty Meat, as it is highly likely we'll see a return of Meat/Steinman for a Bat III before too long.
I still wish this album wouldn't have fallen victim to the usual trend of veteran "legends'" modern-day offerings: the hardcore fan base drives sales hard the first week, then the album is all but forgotten. Indeed, this album rocks and does all the things you would expect from Meat Loaf, just not to the profound levels of other releases. His voice is as good as always (except for his blatant struggles to get the low notes on pitch in the end of "Man of Steel").

3.0 out of 5 stars Steinman Could have Said it Better, But Still Good April 12 2004
Format:Audio CD
I'm a big MEATLOAF fan. I will admit it and be proud of that for a long time! He's got a unique voice, and he's all about passion and operatic over the top rock n roll. There will never be another like him. Unfortunately his signature sound is often tied to Jim Steinman who penned his biggest albums ... BAT OUT OF HELL and the BAT OUT OF HELL 2 opus. This latest release does not have any Steinman penned tunes.
It is an interesting CD that comes as an enhanced package which includes two videos playable on your CD-ROM. You get 11 tracks of Meatloaf pairing himself with writers who try to emulate the successful formula he had with Jim Steinman on the BAT OUT OF HELL albums. Diane Warren contributes a quiet number, and oddly enough ... Nikki Sixx of MOTLEY CRUE shows up on half the tracks as a music writer! True to his musical theatre roots Meatloaf even tries his hand at TEAR ME DOWN which was a centerpiece of the rock musical HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH. But he has altered the lyrics to fit his situation including flipping the spoken word lecture on the BERLIN WALL to be about THE ALAMO in a nod to his Texas heritage. I would love to hear him take on WIG IN A BOX from Hedwig, or WICKED TOWN! But who would ever cast him as an East German Transsexual? Okay I am having flashbacks to him (...) in FIGHT CLUB now!
Overall fans will eat this up -- you can never have enough Meatloaf. But is it BAT OUT OF HELL? Um... no. Is it BAT OUT OF HELL 2? Um ... no. It does stand on its own legs, and has more than enough gems to keep you happy. I want it, I need it, but there ain't no way I'm ever gonna LOVE it like I did the Steinman albums. But 2 out of three ain't bad! And any CD Meat puts out will be in my dashboard -- paradise or not.

Chapter One
1. Couldn't Have Said it Better-5/5-The album starts solidy with a 7 minute epic the evokes the same power at the beginning of a Meat Loaf album as Bat Out of Hell and I'd Do Anything for Love (But I Won't Do That). You'll find yourself singing this one at some point. Patti Russo's vocals are powerful and match Meat Loaf's verry nicely.
2. Did I Say That-4/5-Another very powerful song. Quite enjoyable.
3. Why Isn't That Enough-3/5-Good, but not much can be said about it. Very enjoyable to listen to, but not the greatest.
4. Love You Out Loud-4/5-A very nice peice. Not quite like anything off of either Bat Out of Hell, but still very enjoyable. Great song.
5. Man of Steel-5/5-Another great epic. Loud and bombastique, this is the type of thing that made Meat famous.
Intermezzo-5/5-A nice panpipe peice.
Chapter Two
1. Testify-5/5-After the relaxing panpipe peice we jump into Testify, a southern blues rock, with an almost gospel tone (hence "Testify") It if a very strong peice with great instrumentation. Enjoyable all the way through.
2. Tear Me Down-5/5-Another down and dirty peice with some blues/rock influence. A great peice. I particularaly enjoy the spoken word bridge. One of the best on the album.
3. You're Right, I Was Wrong-3/5-Slowing down a bit, this is a nice, strong peice. Very listenable.
4. Because of You-4/5-Another more lyrical track like track three above, but much more powerful, aided by long electric guitar chords. A very nice track.
5. Do It!-5/5-A slightly off beat track, with Meat doing some faster lyric work (I hate to call it rapping). A very unique peice that'll put a smile on yoru face.
6. Forever Young-5/5-A great cover of a classic Bob Dylan song.
