    Default Bat out of Hell

    Is it just me,I hated this with a vengeance when it came out,I even dumped a rather lovely girlfriend who insisted on playing it when I was round her place,it still grates whenever I hear any tracks from it.

    Am I alone ?

    Its ok, but not all the time. Yes think everyone had a girlfiend who either played it or liked to sneakily quote lines to you as if they were her own...saucy barks. Ive got a copy on cd that i cant get shot of as my dear daughter bought me it as a present many moons ago alas

    I love it but I'm a big Todd Rundgren fan.

    Many years ago a group of us drove from London to Holyhead to catch a ferry. At Out of Hell was the only cassette the driver had in his car. After a couple of hours of continuous play one of my mates pulled it out and chucked it out the window. The silence was indeed golden

    Being a child of the 80s, Bat Out Of Hell 2 I heard a lot of, still to this day one of my fave albums, loud, big voice. Marvin sure knows who to sing, or at least he did, recent stuff has been dire.

    My wifes favourite which I hate with a vengence. She keeps promising to play it at my funeral LOL.

    I am also with Walpurgis on the Queen thing, in fact anything by Queen gets a thumbs down from me.

    Queens early stuff was by far the best. I love the first few albums but can't stand the likes of "I want to break free", "Radio ga ga" and "Flash!".. just far too kitsch, kooky and camp...
