"Two Out of Three Ain't Bad"
Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time — rated 343/500!
Overwrought and undeniable, Meat Loaf's Bat out of Hell remains one of rock's biggest hit albums. The byproduct of a partnership between beefy singer Marvin Lee "Meat Loaf" Aday and fellow journeyman/National Lampoon Road Show cast member Jim Steinman, Bat out of Hell met 1977's vaunted Year of Punk with a blast of neo-operatic, Wagnerian-scaled bombast that was as reactionary as anything the spiked set and their supporters could possibly imagine.
"Meat Loaf's megaselling, megabombastic breakthrough was written by pianist Jim Steinman, who'd intended the material for a new version of Peter Pan. This is one of rock's most theatrical, grandiose records, yet Loaf brings real emotion to 'Two Out of Three Ain't Bad' and 'Paradise by the Dashboard Light.'" — Rolling Stone
