Meat Loaf Bad Attitude (1984)
Originally Released October 1984 (UK)\nOriginal Domestic US Released April 1985\nCD Edition Released December 21, 1993 or January 1994\n\nAMG EXPERT REVIEW: Meat Loaf collects a couple of Jim Steinman songs and he, Paul Jacobs, and Mack work at recreating the Todd Rundgren production sound for an album of high-voltage rock. (Originally released on Arista Records in the U.K. in October 1984, Bad Attitude was released in the U.S. on RCA Records in April 1985.) -- William Ruhlmann\n\nAMAZON.COM CUSTOMER REVIEW\nUndiscovered Gem, January 18, 2002\nReviewer: A music fan\nThis album is clearly the undiscovered gem of all the Meatloaf albums. Easily as good as the original 'Bat Out of Hell' album. And it puts to rest the arguement that Meat's music lost it's edge after he & Jim Steinman parted. Although there are a couple of Steinman songs on this album as well. This collection has it all. Blood pumping rockers, thoughtful ballads, mellow rock & roll, and every tune a killer. Meat Loaf has always been biker music at it's best. You can almost feel the wind in your hair just listening. I discovered Meatloaf about the time I discovered Harley Davidson and the two were made for each other. I had to have a CD player installed on my bike to play my MeatLoaf as I rode. The beat of the music and rumble of the road sync. Ya don't haveta say more. Tracks #1, #2, #3 are the best of the album but it's all good. If you're a MeatLoaf fan and don't already have this album, BUY IT!\n\nAMAZON.COM CUSTOMER REVIEW\nThe Attitude is Bad, But the Music is Great!, May 7, 2000\nReviewer: Alan L Seals (Eugene, OR USA)\nMeatloaf has had more than one comeback in his career, but this was the beginning (1984) of the comeback in 1993 that produced Bat 2.\nThough only 2 of the songs are written by Steinman, most of them have his "style" and I would have sworm they were written by him. \n\nThe album features the beautiful ballad "Surfs Up", Piece of the Action", and Sailor to A Siren" among others. Only one, "Modern Girl" appeared on his 1998 "Best Of" album, so this is one of Meatloaf's best secrets.\n\nFour and a half stars would better describe it, but it still is nearly as good as, or EVEN AS GOOD AS any of Meat's other albums.\n\nAMAZON.COM CUSTOMER REVIEW\nThe true beginning of Meat Loaf's comback., March 6, 2000\nReviewer: Karl John Krumrey IV (Detroit area, Mi)\nWhen Meat Loaf split with Jim Steinman, the man who wrote all the songs for two fantastic albums (Bat out of Hell, over 35 million copies sold, end of ad, and Dead Ringer, the 'failure' that 'only' sold 6 million or so), fans thought it was over, and with good reason. Meat's first non-Steinman effort, Midnight at the Lost and Found, is easily the Loaf's worst effort and a flat out poor record. Bad Attitude, released only a year later, didn't exactly have high expectations. \nSuprisingly, this is a good album, the best of Meat's non-Jim collaborations (There are two Steinman penned songs, but he was absent from the studio). The sound is revitalized and very 80's rockish, unlike the flat rockabilly tone of Midnight... . Meat's 80's band, the Neverland Express, does a fantastic job at attempting to capture the bombast and spirit of Steinman's music. \n\nThe Steinman tunes (Surf's Up and Nowhere Fast) are the best on the album, but non-Jim songs like Sailor to a Siren, Peice of the Action, Don't Leave your Mark on Me, and Modern Girl are all great songs, the latter two were big hits in the UK, but forgotten stateside. The title track opens the album off with a bang, and 'Cheatin in your dreams' the closer, ends it with a harsh infidelity tune that nonetheless rocks. \n\nBad Attitude is a must-have for any Meat Loaf fan's collection, simply because it's the best of his non-Steinman efforts.\n\nAMAZON.COM CUSTOMER REVIEW\nNot just the attitude, October 30, 1999\nReviewer: A music fan\nThe attitude isn't the only thing that is bad here. The music and the cover picture are pretty awful as well. Avoid.\n\nAMAZON.COM CUSTOMER REVIEW\nMeat Loaf's real comeback began here., July 2, 1999\nReviewer: A music fan\nWhen Meat Loaf split with Jim Steinman, the man who wrote all the songs for two fantastic albums (Bat out of Hell, over 35 million copies sold, end of ad, and Dead Ringer, the 'failure' that 'only' sold 6 million or so), fans thought it was over, and with good reason.
