"This album is written for people that are emotionally 16 years old and insane. Every song is from the point of a disenfranchised boy moaning at the world. The end of 'I'm gonna love her for both of us', when he keeps saying the title with different inflections...don't you just picture Rainman rocking in a corner somewhere? And if she doesn't love him back, he'll kill her! Unless she's in bed with a group of his best friends?? No wonder 'Everything is Permitted.'
This is bad. The production is bad, the tone of the guitar is godawful, Meat's voice sounds worse on this cd than any of his others by far (I know he lost his voice and was doing weird things to try to get it back. I don't hold it against him, but I'm the one that has to listen to it.) The band is fine, and I like some of the actual music. It's the song titles and lyrics that are awful."
How did this get such a bad review?

"I had never heard this album until recently. I'd heard "Dead ringer for love" and loved it. But all I'd heard of the album was that it was not half as good at "Bat out of Hell". Well what I say to that is that this album is a brilliant follow up to the album. What were they expecting? An album better than Bat out of hell? Thats impossible. But anyway, the album starts off with the brilliant "Peel out", which will be banging in your head for hours. The next few songs are the ones that get the chorus' stuck in your head. Even though "Read em and weep" is slightly too ballady, it will still get stuck on your brain! "Everything is permitted" is perhaps not the best way to end the album. "Dead ringer for love" would've been quite a finish! Though Meat Loaf's voice is recognisably more high pitched, you would still associate this album to the artist who made an album that stayed in the UK charts for 472 weeks! This is a must have album."
