"“The Monster Is Loose" and “If It Ain’t Broke Break It” delve into Limp Bizkit territory, astonishingly, sporting horns and new-metal guitars. The high points are the old songs, particularly Meat Loaf’s emotionally charged “It’s All Coming Back to Me Now...”  Rolling Stone

Muze PNote Nearly three decades after 1977's BAT OUT OF HELL, and 13 years after its sequel, BACK INTO HELL, Meat Loaf unleashed BAT OUT OF HELL III: THE MONSTER IS LOOSE. While the album was reportedly bogged down in legal disputes between the drama-loving rock performer (aka Marvin "Michael" Aday) and songwriter Jim Steinman, the longtime collaborators apparently patched things up in time for its release on Halloween of 2006. Also assisting Meat Loaf on this typically bold and wonderfully bombastic outing are Todd Rundgren (on vocal arrangements only) and producer Desmond Child, along with a slew of guests including Rob Zombie guitarist John 5 (the uncharacteristically heavy title track) and virtuoso hard-rock six-stringer Steve Vai (the fierce "In the Land of the Pig, the Butcher Is King"). This being a BAT OUT OF HELL installment, of course, there's room for a heart-wrenching duet (with newcomer Marion Raven) on "It's All Coming Back to Me Now" (famously recorded by Celine Dion first) and grandiose pop-tinged rock on "Bad for Good," which benefits from the unmistakable guitar riffs of Queen's Brian May. If it seems like a lot stuffed into one album, it is, and that's exactly what makes THE MONSTER IS LOOSE a top-notch Meat Loaf record.

Professional Reviews

Q (p.140)
- 4 stars out of 5 -- "THE MONSTER IS LOOSE is overblown, frequently ridiculous and largely devoid of irony....The album works best when the big guy is at his most operatic."

Q (p.117)
- Ranked #84 in Q Magazine's "100 Greatest Albums of 2006."


In 1976, Meat Loaf was recruited by Ted Nugent to sing lead vocals on his Free For All set, after which he joined up with Steinman once more in the famous US satirical comedy outfit, the National Lampoon Roadshow. Meat Loaf and Steinman struck up a working musical relationship and started composing a grandiose rock opera. After a long search, they found Epic Records and producer Todd Rundgren sympathetic to their ideas and demo tapes. Enlisting the services of Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band, they recorded Bat Out Of Hell in 1977. This was pieced together around the high camp of the title track, an operatic horror melodrama that saw Meat Loaf raging against nature, and "Paradise By The Dashboard Light", with Ellen Foley providing female accompaniment. The album was ignored for the first six months after release, although Meat Loaf toured extensively, supporting Cheap Trick, among others. Eventually the breakthrough came, and Bat Out Of Hell rocketed towards the top of the charts in country after country. It stayed in the UK and US album charts for 395 and 88 weeks, respectively, and sold in excess of 30 million copies worldwide, making it one of the biggest-selling album releases of all time.
