The '80s didn't start out easy for the previous decade's rock sensation Meat Loaf. Coming off his 1978 tour de force BAT OUT OF HELL, Meat Loaf experienced problems both personally (his throat would mysteriously act up, affecting his voice) and professionally (constant battling with his songwriter Jim Steinman, and filing for bankruptcy due to numerous lawsuits). Still, 1981's DEAD RINGER showed that Meat Loaf still had what it took to pull off another solid slice of theatrical rock, even though it was tough finding a stateside audience for his music in the fickle, fashion-conscious '80s. This wasn't the case in Europe, where Meat Loaf was still a major concert attraction and chart force, and where his third release, 1983's MIDNIGHT AT THE LOST AND FOUND, performed respectfully on the U.K. album charts. Meat Loaf did without BAT producer Todd Rundgren on DEAD RINGER, but he still had Steinman on board. With MIDNIGHT, though, Steinman had bailed out as well, leaving Meat Loaf to fend for himself. Still, such selections as the title track and "The Promised Land" showed that the classic Meat Loaf sound remained intact.
