Couldn't Have Said It Better

Lead Performer: Meat Loaf; Producer (group): Sanctuary

As Meat Loaf albums go, ”Couldn’t Have Said It Better” delivers the thesp-rocker goods as effectively as anything from the glory days of ”Bat I” or ”II”. You’ve got your overwrought ballads, your full-throated rock operettas, and your complete lack of restraint or taste. What you don’t have is Jim Steinman, who wrote all the Meat Loaf songs you can sing from memory, or any persuasive argument why Meat Loaf shouldn’t just stick with the acting thing.
