"...[Meat Loaf's] back with an album whose only concession to contempory requirements is backing vocals by Nelson...Loaf pumps enough fervor into [Jim Steinman's] mania to kick Andrew Lloyd Weber's flabby white butt back to the family mansion..."

"I'd Do Anything For Love (But I Won't Do That)" [by Jim Steinman] was nominated for a 1994 Grammy Award as "Song Of The Year."
"I'd Do Anything For Love (But I Won't Do That)" won the 1994 Grammy Award for "Best Rock Vocal Performance, Solo."
What a great idea: put Eddie and Jim Steinman back together again. Write some songs that sound like the 25-million-selling Bat Out Of Hell and call it . . . For once, whoever conceived this marketing plan was absolutely spot on. The time was right and the songs, while not up to the famous parent, were good. The lead single, "I'd Do Anything For Love (But I Won't Do That)," featured an expensive video using a Beauty And The Beast theme. It helped to sell the album, but no other track on the album had quite the same power. They all sounded like Steinman/Meat Loaf songs.
