Even as he edges gingerly into his late 50s, Meat Loaf seems doggedly determined not to go gently into that good night of tastefully tamed-down middle-aged rockers. He's always been about the larger-than-life musical gesture, and COULDN'T HAVE SAID IT BETTER finds the former Marvin Aday investing his arena-size power ballads with even more drama than in his BAT OUT OF HELL salad days.
The Loaf's famed BAT songwriting cohort Jim Steinman may not be on board, but the singer delivers an album's worth of pathos-drenched, Springsteen-meets-Queen rock opera that seems to hark back to that 1977 smash more than even its '90s sequel. There's a brief nod to nu-metal on "Do It!," one of the few Meat Loaf songs to clock in under three minutes, but things close out on an appropriately epic note with a stately, pomp-and-circumstance version of Bob Dylan's "Forever Young." That said, in an agreeably left-field touch, there's a hidden track at the end wherein our hero takes a roadhouse-rock approach to country star Alan Jackson's hit "Mercury Blues."
