Synopsis

Amazon.com
Bat Out of Hell is probably remembered most for its rock operetta about every teenage boy's plight, "Paradise by the Dashboard Light." Certainly the most dramatic piece on the album, it engaged Meat Loaf's testosterone-crazed tenor in an incremental game of sexual bargaining with the resistant, but willing, Ellen Foley. By employing exaggerated power chords, screaming vocals, over-the-top arrangements, and a sense of rock & roll as Broadway theater, Bat made Meat Loaf a star. Jim Steinman's contribution to the record is invaluable. His classically tinged piano give a certain lush quality to his collaborations with Meat Loaf, making songs such as the hit "Two Out of Three Ain't Bad" all the more emotional. Larger than life in every sense of the word, Bat Out of Hell sometimes sounds a bit dated, but has retained most of its appeal. This expanded, remastered version of the '78 smash includes an extended live version of the title track. --Steve Gdula

Stop right there a music fan!

"Hi, "A music fan!" Please stop writing 1 star reviews to this album! I loathe your practices. Your writing so many reviews (20+) of the same album--and they're all bad--and the album's great--makes me sick to my stomach and I wish I'd never read them and you've done the impossible-almost ruining the experience of listening to "Bat Out of Hell." Do you realize that EVERYBODY loves this album?!?!? You've brought down the star average for this album. Yours is the largest and worst abuse of the Internet of all time."
