When I stop and think about it, Meat Loaf‘s music and meatloaf (the meat) are strikingly similar. They both have questionable content, are generally bad and I can only tolerate either of them in extremely small doses. Overall, I’d have to say that Meat Loaf pales in comparison to meatloaf because meatloaf can be enhanced by various toppings. Regrettably, no manner of toppings can make this album listenable (trust me, I’ve tried). It’s horrendously boring from beginning to end. This is due to many things. Meat Loaf’s lack luster vocals are part of the problem. Back Into Hell is another good example of filler. The whole track is really dull. Nothing really stood out.
Steinman trademarked the name "Bat Out Of Hell" in 1995, and in 2006, Meat Loaf sued him when Steinman wouldn't let him use the title "Bat Out Of Hell III" for an album. Steinman produced the album Bat Out Of Hell II, but Desmond Child produced the 2006 album. Bat Out Of Hell" is an expression meaning very fast. Producer Todd Rundgren told Mojo magazine February 2009 of Bruce Springsteen's influence on the Bat Out of Hell album. Yet we out-Springsteened Springsteen. He's never had a record that sold like Bat Out of Hell, and I didn't think that anyone would ever catch on to it. I thought it would be just a cult thing. The royalties from that album enabled me to follow my own path for a long time after that. The Bat Out of Hell album spent 474 weeks on the UK album chart and became one of the top five all time best selling albums.
