    when i had to do a stint as a kitchen porter, playing this on my walkman was the only way i kept my spirits up during the time spent scraping and washing pans in an outside 'annex' (roof over top but no wall behind me) of a very posh hotel during a cold winter. The chef said there was something wrong with me as no one smiled whilst doing that job!

    To the OP, imho you should have gone with the vibe and been the wolf with the red roses

    I think though that Mr Loaf has been somewhat of a one trick pony regarding his follow up albums, but that first one is a classic, if you like that kind of melodic rock.

    The first Queen two albums are brilliant. I can live with the next couple but they tailed off into a poor joke after that.

    The first couple of tracks on Bat Out Of Hell are worth its space on the shelf but the rest of the album is filler just waiting to be put into a rock musical IMHO.

    Never liked 'Bat out of hell', 'Bohemian Rhapsody', Sultans of swing', Hotel California', Rocket man', to name but a few. Mainly because of the music, but also because all the people i knew who liked those tunes, work mates ,people i grew up with, were right knob ends... Not to say anybody who likes those tunes are knob ends, but the people i knew were. I always associate the songs with those people.
    Even worse they sang ( i use that term loosely ) along to those tunes too, one of my bugbears.
    Kraken, Saturn, Emotion, Flying V Rocket, Planets.
