Bat Out Of HellMeat Loaf
I love everything about Bat Out of Hell. Everything is so extravagant, overcomposed, and just in general turned all the way up to 11. Steinman's melodies are rock-solid and his lyrics succeed in convinced you that the entire fate of mankind depends on whether or not this horny teenager gets to third base tonight in the backseat of a Chevy Camaro. EVERYTHING is at stake. Instrumentation is of course ridiculously on point with Todd Rundgren and members of the E Street Band combining to make this silly record one of the best and most enjoyable rock operas ever. Thank you Meat Loaf, you absolute legend.
