I also enjoy the Steinman girl group side project. Pandora's Box-Original Sin
Steinman's one of my fav songwriter's easily.
I'm pretty meh on everything from Bat 3 onward. Couldn't Have Said It Better was the last whole album I enjoyed from him. I felt Bat 3 was an awful attempt at trying to re-re-capture the special magic of the other two that I don't feel was possible for him at that point. There's some good songs but the album is overall not worthy of the Bat Out Of Hell name. Nothing else after that did it for me.
I listened to bat 3 last night and the best thing about that album are the Steinman songs for me.
it should have been a Meat/Steinman album through and through.
alas they weren't all the best terms than.
also side note. it sucks that people age. because meat loaf to me in my head will always be the long haired 93/94 Meat.
not only did he sound his best. that was his best LOOK, Imo.
he was really fit than too.....for meat i mean, lol
