Meat Loaf: Bat Out Of Hell

Sandy Robertson, Sounds, 21 January 1978

GARAGE BANDS. Despite all their virtues, and even though groups like Yes and Uriah Heep are pretty convincing arguments against technology and heavy metal respectively, occasionally the accumulated knowledge of hardware and musical heritage can still combine to produce some pretty interesting plastic. I mean, Hollywood does make the best movies (sometimes), if you get my drift. And so it is with this album.
