MEAT LOAF - Hell Is A Handbasket

MEAT LOAF - Hell Is A Handbasket

Music comes no bigger than Meat Loaf. After more than 35 years and some of the biggest albums of all time, the man born Marvin Lee Aday, has been a larger than life presence in music with his unique songs and stellar collaborations. BAT OUT OF HELL is still the number one selling international album in Australia. And now, Meat Loaf does it all again with the release of his new album Hell In A Handbasket. Like most Meat Loaf albums, Hell In A Handbasket is a BIG album with every song delivering a message that alludes to the theme of the album. Meat Loaf describes it as "the most personal record I've ever made. It's about how I feel the world's gone to hell in a handbasket. It's really the first record that I've ever put out about how I feel about life and how I feel about what's going on at the moment." Produced by Paul Crook with input from Rob Cavallo, Hell In A Handbasket once again features some interesting collaborations and special guests. Long time duet partner Patti Russo again features on a Meat Loaf album, this time on a song called 'Our Love And Our Souls'. Public Enemy's Chuck D contributes an original rap mixed into a cover of Tom Cochran's 'Mad Mad World'. Entitled 'Good God's a Woman And She Don't Like Ugly', its every bit as interesting as the titles alludes to. "Chuck D is the rapper's rapper. He is the original and every rapper that has come after him, wants to be like him. For us to have him on this record is a major coup and i am so impressed with what he wrote!" Meat Loaf said. Lil Jon, another well known rap artist who appeared in Celebrity Apprentice alongside Meat Loaf, appears on 'Stand In the Storm'. It also features a Meat Loaf version of The Mamas And The Papas classic 'California Dreaming'.
