We Meat again


LIKE a bat out of Hell, rotund rocker Meat Loaf returns with a remastered version of his condensed greatest hits package - and although two out of three ain't bad, there's no way it's going to be anything but five out five.
Slightly rejigged from its original 1984 release, all of Loaf's big hitters are here - Dead Ringer For Love, Bat Out Of Hell, You Took The Words Right Out Of My Mouth (Hot Summer Night), Paradise By The Dashboard Light - and I'd Do Anything For Love (But I Won't Do That) and I'd Lie For You (And That's The Truth) have been added for good measure.
Fist-pumping, girl-winning, lighter-waving, handkerchief-saturating, cape-wearing overblown pomposity prevails - and it's as fun as it ever was.
If you already own some Meat Loaf then there's not a lot of point in adding this to your collection, but for the casual consumer Hits Out Of Hell is more than enough to get your fill.
