"This CD is outstanding, ranking up with other Meat Loaf classics such as Bat Out of Hell (1 and 2) and Welcome to the Neighborhood. (OK, it's even better than WTTN). I purchased it in April when it was originally released in the UK, and it has not left my CD player since. It includes the drama filled ballads we've come to expect from ML (Couldn't Have Said it Better, Why Isn't that Enough, Did I Say That, etc), as well as a touch of gospel (Testify), rocking Broadway (Tear Me Down from Hedwig and the Angry Inch), hard rock (Love You Out Loud) , classic covers (a version of Forever Young that puts Dylan and Rod Stewart to shame), even a bit of rockabilly (Mercury Blues). This is an outstanding album, I would strongly recommend it to anyone who has enjoyed ML's previous work. Heck, I'd recommend it to anyone who just plain likes good music. Meat Loaf delivers- this CD rocks!"
Absolutely Brilliant - - Meat Loaf Has Done It Once Again

"I read in an interview that Meat Loaf originally thought this was going to be his last CD. Well, if that was true, he clearly saved the best for last !!To me every song on the CD is perfect in it's own special way ... from the powerful duet Couldn't Have Said It Better (which clearly showcases the strong talents of Patti Russo as well as Meat), to the fun hard rocking tracks that you can't help singing along to : Do It, Testify, Tear Me Down & Love You Out Loud, to the slower, superb ballads Why Isn't That Enough and Forever Young. There's definitely something for everybody's taste .... But if I have to choose my favorite song, it would be Did I Say That. Meat brings such a level of emotion to the song that I still get goosebumps every time I listen to it ... yes, it's sad, but powerful and truly overwhelming at the same time. It's one of the most beautiful and heart wrenching songs I've ever heard .. a true Meat Loaf classic :)) And Meat if you read this ... you said this CD is the best work you've done since Bat ..... well sir, I Couldn't Have Said It Better Myself :))) Well done and congratulations !!! Trust me - I don't think we'll see you becoming a decorator :))Vicki Pearson"

"Meat Loaf's latest musical adventure may not portray him at his once high entertainment, operatic best (ie: 'Bat Out Of Hell 1 + 2'), but it still contains enough vibrancy and energy to claim it something very worthwhile for those fans that have been waiting way too long for something new from the big Texan. Marvin Lee Aday has brought to the fore on this new album of 12 (if you count the hidden track - and we ALL should) songs a feeling of musical passion that is so long been missing from the sulky, broody, young bands of today's weak charts. His long-time collaborator Jim Steinman is noticeably absent from this project, but those influences aside, songs like the opening powerhaus title track, the apologetic "Did I Say That" and the maturing-man song "Man Of Steel" all ensure that his absence isn't too cried upon. Faring way better song wise than his last outing in '95 with 'Welcome To The Neighborhood,' Meat Loaf has kept with his strength of voice, his trailing lyrical empathy, and provided us a work of pure rock art that should tide us over nicely until the '05 release of 'Bat Out Of Hell III: The Final Conflict.'
