About this album

Bat out of Hell is a 1977 album by singer Meat Loaf, songwriter Jim Steinman, and producer Todd Rundgren that became the third best-selling album worldwide behind Michael Jackson’s Thriller and AC/DC’s Back In Black, continuing to sell approximately 200,000 per year. Rolling Stone magazine ranked it at number 343 on its list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. Its musical style is influenced by Steinman’s appreciation of Richard Wagner, Phil Spector and Bruce Springsteen.

This album’s title also became the title for two more Meat Loaf albums. Steinman produced the 1993 album, Bat out of Hell II: Back into Hell. Desmond Child produced the 2006 album, Bat out of Hell III: The Monster Is Loose.

    The criticism that this album (or any of Jim Steinman's work with the Loaf) is too over the top is ridiculous. Of course it's over the top - that's the whole fucking point. So was Wagner. So was Beethoven.

    Todd Rundgren is still making a good living off the royalties from the album. They work well together.

    O forte teor sarcástico de “Battle Out Of Hell” pode ter induzido muitas pessoas a não levar a sério as músicas musicalmente falando. Mas mesmo assim nada pôde conter alguns sucessos avassaladores como a bela canção “Heaven Can Wait” e “Two Out Of Three Ain’t Bad” que mostravam a força da união do compositor Jim Steinman e a interpretação sem poréns de Meat Loaf. “Paradise By The Dashboard Light” e a música titulo do álbum sintetizam bem as várias vertentes que estão misturadas entre as faixas, desde a temática adolescente roqueira com muitas guitarras distorcidas e batidas enlouquecidas, ate arranjos sinfônicos muito bem arranjados e regidos com muito capricho. Vale a pena relembrar.
