October 24, 2020: ONE WEEK REMAINING in the Annual Heavy Harmonies Donation Drive!

Donations stand at covering 63% of the site's annual expenses... so close and yet so far. The annual donation drive is what keeps the site free for everyone so that I'm only pestering you once a year rather than running ads year round.

If you are not in a position to contribute (which I fully understand), please disable your ad-blocker on heavyharmonies.com. When you click through any of the eBay links, if you buy something on eBay, Heavy Harmonies will get a tiny commission.

Donation buttons are shown below. There is a thread on the HH forum that explains the perks for donating at the $20 and $50 levels.

Thank you for supporting the Heavy Harmonies community!

Like Pandoras Box, this was a CD of material initially written for Meat Loaf, but ended up being recorded by another Steinman project, only to have Meat record some of the songs years later. (I believe this album was initially written as the follow up to Bat out of hell, but was shelved because of Meats vocal problems) As you would expect, this sounds exactly like a Meat Loaf album, but loses a few points because the vocals are not as good. Any fan of Meat Loaf should own this, as the sound is identical, unsurprisingly.

I really like this CD. Yes the vocals are a bit weaker than Meat Loaf but I prefer the version of 'Surfs Up' to the one on Meat Loafs 'Bad Attitude' album.

Wow....such a classic...i remmember buying this on vinyl when it came out..the limited edition brought a 45rpm with the song "Rock & Roll Dreams Come Through" which is a fantastic song and the epic instrumental one "The Storm"..another killer tracks are "Bad For Good","Lost Boys & Golden Girls","Out Of The Frying Pan(And Into The Fire)","Dance In My Pants"..basically this album is essential in any rock collector's room...the "brain" behind Meat Loaf and others musicians deserve it...95/100
