I think I have nearly every Meat Loaf album released in my collection and it's fair to say the big man released a few stinkers, BUT "Couldn't Have Said It Better" (CHSIB) is I'm happy to say, not one of them. Bat Out Of Hell (BOOH) 1 & 2 are absolute Rock classics - Jim & Meat combined to produce pure musical genius. Unfortunatly Meat's efforts without Jim often fell short of the standards first set in 1977 with BOOH.
CHSIB doesn't have Jim's distictive theatrical rock melodies and harmonies beating away in the background, but it does have a fresh, modern feel to it that has Meat belting out some great lively Texan style Rock n' Roll, along with some passionatly sung ballads to stir up the emotions.
True Meat Loaf fans should love this album. Meat is definetly finishing on a high (in true rock n' roll style), and those who were unsure of his previous offerings... well I suggest you grab this final installment of Meat Loafs outstanding talent.
