It was tough getting a copy in the UK but finally mine arrived this morning after a 5 week journey from the US. Of course without obtaining the original session tapes and doing a total remix there are certain aspects of the original release are going to remain. It has 3 songs that are around 10 minute long, but with such musicality and variation that you never have the feeling of wanting it to end. Coming 16 years after the release of the multiplatinum Bat out of Hell, Back into Hell doubles down on the humour and theatricality of Meat’s debut making it a worthy successor. The opening track draws you in and takes me back to being a child listening for the first time my Dad's original vinyl copy.

com, the Sell on Etsy app, and the Etsy app, as well as the electricity that powers Etsy’s global offices and employees working remotely from home in the US.For all intents and purposes, it's the same master as the standard European pressings around at the time. Also includes companion music by such hitmakers as Bonnie Tyler "Total Eclipse Of The Heart," Bonnie Tyler "Holding Out For A Hero," Ellen Foley "We Belong To The Night" and more!

Language - Regardless of country of origin all tracks are sung in English, unless otherwise stated in our description. No bonus tracks, no rare photos, no DVD, no fancy sleeve, no signed presentation gold plated case (a gold plated disc though! A constant for years in the album charts, it has been followed up by Bat Out of Hell 2 and 3, and a stage musical. The songs are once again written by Jim Steinman and the album features the same cast from the original: keyboardist Roy Bittan and drummer Kenny Aronoff, with vocal support by Ellen Foley, Kasim Sultan and Todd Rundgren.Bat out of Hell has always been recognised as a brilliant album but an absolute DOG sound quality wise mostly down to Todd Rundgrens production and an attempt by him to create a 'wall of sound' great for effect but has squashed out a lot of the mid range.

Meatloaf's Legendary album 'Bat Out Of Hell' which made him a household name, pressed 180gram heavyweight black vinyl. Mr Aday's vocals take on a new lease of life bringing out a new snap and sparkle hidden previously and there is also audiophile traits exposed like plucking of the bass strings which again have been hidden. While the sentiments are deliberately adolescent and filled with jokes and exaggerated clichés, there's real (albeit silly) wit behind these compositions, not just in the lyrics but in the music, which is a savvy blend of oldies pastiche, show tunes, prog rock, Springsteen-esque narratives, and blistering hard rock (thereby sounding a bit like an extension of Rocky Horror Picture Show, which brought Meat Loaf to the national stage).

This is Grand Guignol pop - epic, gothic, operatic, and silly, and it's appealing because of all of this.It was the concept of composer Jim Steinman, was recorded through 1975 and 1976, and was produced by Todd Rundgren. It's a "this is another Meat Loaf song you may know" situation rather than anything that supplements one's appreciation of the album.

I had a copy of this on cassette tape way back when so when I wanted to hear it I had to turn to YouTube.

Synonymous with one of the best-selling albums of all time, Marvin Lee Aday's vision and talent has become a legacy. There was a rumour that the original master tapes had been destroyed in a fire and this would have proved to be an unmitigated disaster.

Lower frequencies now anchor the music to the floor and the mids and trebles move up and out from the speakers creating a wall of music with clear separation and vocals that oversee the entire stage.

It may be easy to dismiss this as ridiculous, but there's real style and craft here and its kitsch is intentional.

And there never could have been a singer more suited for his compositions than Meat Loaf, a singer partial to bombast, albeit shaded bombast.
