Meat Loaf. What is there really to say about the guy? Or rather, what’s NOT to say about the guy? The guy is nothing short of a rock icon, but to say that his career has been a rocky one is to put things mildly. Since his legendary debut album Bat Out Of Hell (1977) (well, in all honesty, he and a chick named Shaun Murphy released an album under the Stoney & Meat Loaf back in 1971), he have kept on releasing hit records and flop records one after the other, in an ever flowing stream. All three of his Bat Out Of Hell records have been very good and so were the Bat Out Of Hell follow-up Dead Ringer (1981) and the criminally underrated, Mack-produced Bad Attitude (1984).
