5. JIM STEINMAN ‘Bad For Good’ There’s a great quote from Jim Steinman where he says ‘If you don’t go over the top, you can’t see what’s on the other side’, which sums up this LP for me. This was supposed to be the 2nd Meat Loaf album ‘Renegade Angel’ but Meat lost his voice so Jim and Rory Dodd sang all the songs instead. When I was a kid growing up in South Wales and feeling pissed off and alienated (which was pretty much every day) I would sit in my bedroom blasting ‘Love, Death and an American Guitar’ and it made everything okay.
